Ben qualified and was shown at Cruft's in '09. Ben also qualified for the Cruft's 2010 show but, as we were posted back to Canada, he was not shown.
Ben's litter sister Honey (MacKildare White Heather Amid Dragonusa) also qualified for Cruft's in '09, '10 and '11. In Dec 2010, Honey permanently qualified for Cruft's !
Ben has been tested for susceptibility to Pug Dog Encephalitis(PDE) and his results were N/N.
Unfortunately the CKC does not recognise foreign titles (Ch) when importing dogs from the UK. Ben's father and most of his UK line are British Champions. Ben's sire is Ch Hattella Fresh Parsley (JW). Parsley was Best of Breed at Crufts in 2001 and 2002, he also took a Group 2. He was runner-up (RCC) in 2003. Parsley was the top UK pug puppy in 2000 and top pug in 2001/2002. During his exceptional show career Parsley aquired 30 Challenge Certificates and numerous group placings in the UK. Breeder/owner and an extremely helpful lady, Mrs Carol Kirk.
