Considered the foundation sire and the father of the Yorkie breed, Huddersfield Ben was a stud dog , ratting champion and a confident competitor in dog shows; winning over 70 awards.

Unlike a typical Yorkie today, he was a hefty dog, weighing 11 pounds. He was considered a great stud dog as the majority of his litters yielded puppies that were under 5 pounds. Most show line Yorkie’s are distant relatives of Ben today, even though he only lived to be six years old, he left behind an impressive legacy.
