"While watching AmStaffs at Devon in October 1998, Maryanne Bedson was standing ringside with an 8 week old red and white puppy. The moment I laid eyes on him in her arms I went immediately up to her and introduced myself and said to her, 'I must have that puppy!' Maryanne was very gracious and thought I must be crazy at first, but after a lot of discussion, I bought my very first American Staffordshire Terrier. I knew he would be a big winner from the minute I saw him that day. I named him 'Ozzie' and chose his registered name as Gold Standard. That name because all things of value are measured by a gold standard in the world."
He definitely set the standard, and went on to become a big winner in Europe as well, especially in Finland, where he influenced the breed in many ways. Many top AmStaffs around the world today descend from him.
