A Kennel Club Registered Old Time Staffordshire Bull Terrier that would and could do it all !! Sid was owned by my good friend from Madgame who campaigned him at the Ed Reid I,K,C Spectaculars in 2000. He gained a lot of recognition at these event's, winning many conformation classes, best male Stafford and best in shows. At that time he was going against some real greats, Dexter, Holsten, Shakers Bulls Eye & Bear Jnr, just to name a few. In condition Sid weighed 36lb and pulled 1150lb at the weight pull competition, he was a ACE at the A-Frame and loved to run the treadmill, apparently he would even sleep on the mill when left alone..that's how much he liked it !! Over the years I had seen and spent a lot of time with Sid and must say he had a superb temperament and character. He was 100 miles per hour and always gave Kris 100% at everything he was put to, a real athletic sporting Stafford !! Sid was a fantastic producer and sired some quality litters, he could certainly stamp his mark and this was seen in his offspring Madgame ''Inja'' & Madgame Boo. These were also both exceptional Staffords. He was also responsible for siring one of the Ghostlyease's Staffords early foundation female's Ghostlyease's Piper. who in turn also went on to produce some great sporting Staffords !! If you are lucky enough to have Madgame ''Sid The Lad'' in your pedigree? you have a real ''good un'' as they say !!
