We are a small breeder with a proven recommendations and references. We bred full AKC registered Havanese puppies. The puppies are bred and raised to grow into well adjusted, top of the line dogs. We ensure that there is a demand for our puppies so that we ensure that are all well placed in loving homes. Havanese dogs are superior family dogs, highly intelligent, easy to train, smaller size and adaptable to different people and situations, plus they generally get along with other pets and kids. They are non-shedding so perfect for all those allergy sufferers that could not otherwise have a special pet and they have long average life spans with no reported serious medical conditions. We don’t cage or kennel our dogs or puppies. They get so much love and attention from us. We don’t distance ourselves from the puppies because we really feel they need all that affection, although it does make it much more difficult on us to see them leave. The new owners most often keep us updated with pictures, and information on their progress and we periodically send out gifts to the puppies. We provide lots of love and attention, socialization, high quality foods, playtime inside and outside, start potty training and medical care to include removal of dew claws, and 1st round of shots so they grow into healthy, well adjusted, and top of the line, AKC Havanese Dogs. They come with 3 day healthy puppy guarantee and 1 year health guarantee per the terms outlined in those guarantees which is shown on link on left and provided signed copy upon puppy pickup. Per terms spay/neutering is required. AKC limited registration application provided.
We currently have 1 puppy available from this litter born on Jan 23. Litter was comprised of 3 boys and 1 girl and you will be added to the list to make the respective pick according to when your purchase was made. Hurry, the remaining puppy will not last long. There is not a bad one in the bunch and often the best puppy is left for last because each person puts weight on a different area; personality, sweetest, energetic, most cuddly the day they come to visit, etc. Best puppies ever! They are priced at $1450. We are accepting deposits for pick from the remaining puppies according to the place you are on the list. This is done according to when your application is approved and $500 required deposit received so the number available can change at any time. All of the puppies are adorable though so it's really just a matter of preference. Each of the puppies are superior quality and would be an excellent choice for a lifetime friend. Puppies will be available to go to new owner's house at 8 weeks of age. I've posted the new pictures of the litter of puppies at the bottom of this page and one of these have already been reserved. Other pictures are from past litters. Most pictures and comments are posted on our Facebook page, and this page is more informative. Contact us if you should need more information.
Right now we have 3 Havanese Dogs. Currently, we are breeding our Dam Serafina. She is an Exceptional Dog! We think she has ALL the good traits you could ever want in a Dog! She’s got excellent traits with a beautiful wavy white and cream coat, great disposition and personality. She’s extremely healthy, gentle, very loving but not clingy, protective but not aggressive, playful and energetic but not hyper! She is Truly One of a KIND dog!
She is game for almost anything. She loves to play, walk, hike, or wade in the water. She has a ton of toys to play with and she loves to play with us, the other dogs and also with her puppies when they get old enough. It’s a blast to watch her and the puppies play. She is a really good Mother. She’s attentive to her puppies and I will swear that she is proud and happy to have them. She is the best dog and really no trouble at all. It was like we always had her. She really enriches our lives. She grew up playing with our 2 sons. She is small but not fragile; protective but not aggressive. She would no doubt step forward and protect us if someone were threatening us. She’s a confident dog with a normally quiet presence but not meek. We keep her active and walk her 2 miles a day. She is a good Mother and definitely knows what she is doing with her puppies. She seems so happy and proud to show you her puppies. She takes excellent care of the puppies. All of her puppies have so many of the same qualities she has. Our dogs are not hyper but they are capable of doing most outdoor activities with us. They are not like big dogs that require a certain amount of exercise every day but they do enjoy it and can keep up with almost any activity level. We do bring our dogs out for a daily 2 mile walk and stop to play ball at the park. Still, if I’m sick or unable to bring them, they adjust their activity level to mine.
Our dogs are very important to us. They are extremely special to us. We don’t kennel or cage our dogs ever. In fact, all my dogs sleep with me and they are all very, spoiled with treats, toys, affection and love. We feel guilty if we are too busy or sick to bring them out for a daily walk or playtime, which is not very often. Their medical needs are taken care of as well as a high protein diet of fresh liver mixed with their moist food and supplemented with daily vitamins and a dry dog food. They also get high quality treats as well, that include real meats, teeth cleaning bonies, rawhides, new toys, etc. They are first and foremost our Pets and no amount of money can or would replace them. It’s not all about money. We value our dogs and would Not consider selling them. We don’t get rid of our dogs because they are finished breeding. We plan to have them as our pets for the rest of their lives.
They can sit still and behave well in the car on road trips and in hotel rooms, new places, etc. We’ve taken many road trips visiting other states and then on long road trips across the United States, and stopping along the way at various hotels and spots. We’ve taken them along with us on almost every trip we have taken. It’s a choice and they are like our kids so we don’t like to leave them behind.
We provide the same level of care, love and attention to the puppies and we never skimp on them to save a few bucks or make extra. That’s not who we are. Out of respect for the new owners, we do try not to spoil them too much. It is hard sometimes. They are certainly well taken care of and get so much love and attention. It’s authentic because we actually really love all animals and the puppies. We try to stay in contact with most of the owners after the puppies are sold and gone and we have even sent new toys out for gifts on several occasions. Our goal is to raise extremely well behaved, healthy, adorable puppies for those looking for that special once in a lifetime lifelong companion. We get such a really special feeling from doing just that.
Reviews: The puppies we’ve sold have been extremely well received by our buyers and our Vet. Our Vet has repeatedly commented that we have some of the best puppies/litters he has seen in all the years in the business. We have many recommendations from past buyers. We keep in touch with most of the owners and receive updates with pictures and posts. We’ve been told how blessed they are to have found us and to have purchased such awesome, loving pets. The puppies enrich each of their lives. It’s wonderful to know that we had something to do with that. Most of the reviews are posted on our FB page. I’ve copied many of them below:
- “Riley loved his Christmas package of toys and treats! You are a very special mom to the puppies you bring into the world and share.”
- “Can't believe he is 2 already, time goes so fast, we love him.”
- “Thank you Both for the present for Annah. what a sweet thing your guys do. Your great breeders I highly recommend you to people looking for the Havanese.. Our Annah is sweet and smart .”
- Dexter is settling in well. He is already bringing us so much joy. Here is a picture of my son Ben reading to him (-:
- Annoushka ... "She is a joy and a real completeness in our lives". "Annah had a prelim showed clear. eyes perfect ".
- Mischa and Alexsei... "Thanks so much! We feel blessed to have found you guys as breeders. It is wonderful to know how well cared for the pups are. Thank you!"
- "Just wanted to let you know that we took Mischa to the vet on 9/3/11. He checked out just fine. They did a fecal float and there were no worms/parasites/ova noted."
- Iraina... "We feel really good about buying a puppy from your family". "We call her Sheba and she has been the best dog we've ever had".
- Bailey... “Thank you for raising such nice dogs” “Bailey continues to do excellent. Transitioning to toileting outside quite well.”
- Our Veteranarian... “Ive seen Breeders who have been in business for many years and this is the best breed of puppies I've seen before”. “They don't even bark!”
Return Buyers: We have sold 2 puppies to 3 different customers and it would have been more but we simply didn’t have any more puppies available to sell to them. We’ve had lots of referrals from our current owners and glowing reviews! We’ve had our customers recommend us to friends, family and neighbors but I must say, our puppies do sell fast. We do not offer that many litters and when we do, all of the puppies are normally reserved pretty fast. If you are thinking of getting a puppy from us, then please don’t hesitate too long because I will tell you that before you know it, all of them will be sold. We might have 3 one day and 0 the next day. Since, we don’t know when or if our next litter will be, then if you are going to get a puppy from us, then please keep this in mind.
What We Provide:
We offer a clean and loving environment, with socialization for all the puppies prior to them being homed. Our Dam is very trusting and loving. We set up a nice quiet area of the house for their whelping area and den. We are there to help with the birth of the puppies and are allowed in her den and area to feed her and visit and handle the puppies after their birth. We take care of all her needs and also the puppy’s needs as they grow older. We present the pups with a method of inside and outside if possible, potty training. For the inside method, we use the Misty Hills Method of potty training beginning at a very early age so they have a foundation in which to begin with. We hope that by the time they leave our home, they are regularly using the pad and also familiar with using the outdoors to potty, although, the degree of each does vary with each puppy and litter. We try to let them go outside for supervised play times in our fenced in and covered back yard when it’s safe for them to do so and weather permitting. They really enjoy that and it’s super cute to watch them all running outside, one by one with their little tails wagging. We provide the puppies all the love and care so they grow up to be the most healthy and happy puppies. We provide them lots of attention, and socialize them at an early age. This way they become used to being around other pets, people and things, and are not afraid or aggressive!”
When the puppies get a little older, and Mom doesn’t need the privacy of the den so much then we move them to another area in the house so that they can be more out in the open and have more one on one time with us and the other pets.
Excellent Quality Puppies:
We mate to make well behaved, healthy, high quality AKC Champion Bloodline puppies. They are extremely well behaved puppies who have excellent physical traits as determined by the highest standards set forth by the AKC guidelines. Many could be top show quality puppies and dogs, however, we choose to keep them as pets and not to show them. We also require new owners spay/nueter the puppies at age 6 months or as recommended by their Vet. We work hard to provide puppies that are healthy, happy, well adjusted, and socialized. We work hard to make ensure that the puppies are well cared for and that we provide the foundation for each of them to have a great start in life, without any emotional scars or disabilities! This makes for a more sound, secure and well-rounded puppy and then Dog.
Not all breeds of dogs are the same; nor are all dogs within that breed the same. The quality of dog and how it was raised makes a huge difference in the traits that the puppy will develop when they grow into a full grown dog.
What to look out for:
To ensure you don’t purchase a Puppy Mill puppy, then you can directly contact the AKC to ask about local and reputable breeders in your area. You can do an internet search and look up puppy mills in your area and law suits or alarming information against a particular breeder. Are they any accusations of being a “puppy mill”? Is there any foundation to the accusation? Do they respond to your inquiries for information? Are they posted on Craigslist? Craigslist doesn’t allow the selling of dogs but only allows seller to charge a very nominal/small fee for re-homing the puppy or dog. Does the breeder seem loving and concerned with the welfare of the puppies and the breed? Knowledgeable? Is pickup in their home offered? Is the Damn on site? Are they registered AKC? References? We have many references posted on our FB page by owners who have kept in contact with us. They have posted by their own free will and even posted with their personal Facebook account. Be wary about picking up the puppy outside of their home. This is often times a warning sign. Be wary, of the lowest price puppies. You sometimes get what you pay for. This is an investment in the quality of your life for many years to come. If you pick the right puppy, then you may have the puppy for 15-20 years. If you buy a puppy that needs medical attention then you could end up spending much more money on medical bills. Not to mention, the stress, time and effort that you will go through with a sick puppy. Our pedigree is proven. There's no way anyone who has the pedigree, and puts the time, effort and money into raising the puppies as we do, could offer them for less. We take care of our puppies like new born babies, which means for us, day and night.
Inferior Quality/Neglected or Traumatized Pets:
You may save money and buy a puppy for less money but end up with one that needs a lot of medical care, and has emotional and behavioral problems. We’ve had lots of calls as a result of a buyer purchasing a puppy elsewhere, only to find out that the puppy is unmanageable and not the quality that they had thought and paid for. Some people spend thousands on medical bills and obedience training, only to eventually end up finding the puppy a new home, but not until after the puppy and the family have been more traumatized.
When you buy a sick puppy, not only could you end up incurring a huge amount in medical costs but you may also end up having to care for it and watch it while it’s sick. No one wants to get a new puppy and then have to watch while it’s sick and in pain. It may be genetically inferior so that it’s really not a good example of this awesome breed of dog. Many of the less expensive puppies come from puppy mills, and have not been properly raised or have the high standards of breeding or care that we provide. They may have even been abused which of course, can cause severe emotional scarring and behavioral problems that are difficult to fix. It’s not good when a puppy is taken away from its Mother or Siblings too early because they learn through play and interaction with them. There is nothing wrong with adopting a rescue dog but many people are not aware of the difficulty in trying to change these dog’s behaviors. It often takes a professional accustomed to working with these types of dogs, to be able to rehabilitate them so that they are more well-rounded pets.
Almost always in these situations, the puppy will be very disruptive and difficult to train and handle. It may act out and even aggressively bite and chew on things, be unfriendly, not get along with other pets and children, and overall threaten the peaceful surroundings and tranquility of the hone. Meanwhile, the family has ended up spending money and time than what they can comfortably invest, and often end up exceeding the amount that they would have paid for a modest priced puppy. Plus, both the puppy and the children end up being traumatized. When there are children involved then you must be extra careful. You want to ensure their safety and not expose them to dogs and situations that will likely result in them being scared of dogs in general and even traumatize the children or taint the family on the possibility of getting another puppy.
A good quality puppy, raised in a good environment can make a wonderful pet and have a positive influence on the overall dynamics and harmony of the home.
The Havanese Breed & Traits:
When you consider a Havanese, you are considering one of the BEST BREEDS! The breed is non-shedding and so it's perfect for allergy sufferers. They are also great to use as a therapy or service type dog. Havanese are smaller dogs but not tiny, miniature dogs. They are extremely healthy with little known congenital problems and average lifespan is 14-17 years. The weight of this breed is slightly increasing and the average weight is now about 12-16 pounds. Fewer of the breed, weigh about 10-21 pounds. I estimate puppies from this litter to be about 12-15 pounds but that’s an early estimate based merely on the weight of the parents. It will be easier to determine the weight and size of the puppies after birth.
Keep in Mind that the color of the Havanese fur is often known to change! This is not certain but it does often happen most often with the very dark brown and sometimes black puppies but it can happen with other colors as well. It will sometimes change drastically and can turn into even more beautiful coloring. Research this further if you are interested as this is a whole science subject
They are non-shedding and perfect for those allergy sufferers and those who simply don’t like fur all around the house. I have full grown dogs and you would not know it by the lack of fur in my house. You can also wear black without getting fur on your clothes. It’s known to be a very healthy breed without any real serious Congenital Diseases.
Application for Puppy:
If you are interested in a puppy, then I ask you to complete a puppy questionnaire form or call me with the information. It’s important to talk to prospective buyers. We ask some questions to try and ensure suitability and see what your preferences are. We have provided a puppy questionnaire form on the link to the left. You can fill that out and send a copy to me in email or phone me with details. Information will be kept private and I won’t use it for any purpose other than to determine suitability and preference in a puppy. After reviewing the information, I will let you know if we have a puppy available for you and negotiate the sale of the puppy. Deposit is required to hold a puppy.
Deposit, Balance and Payment Options:
· Deposit Required: $500 Non-refundable
· $950 remaining balance due upon pickup
Please discuss options to pay the deposit and remaining balance so that both parties feel comfortable with the payment options and the balance is paid by or upon the date of pickup.
Payment thru Paypal : Preferred Method of Payment. $500 Deposit Paypal payment accepted. Balance Due Paypal Accepted = Since Paypal charges the business receiver a fee to accept payments, we ask that if the buyer wishes to make the remaining balance payment through this method of payment, that they include $25 for the fees that will be deducted from our payment.
We will accept the remaining balance paid in cash, upon time of pickup, with a written bill of sale, health guarantee/contract and puppy provided to the buyer at that time.
We may accept a check for either deposit or remaining balance. Please discuss this option with us prior to the payment. When paying by check for the deposit payment, we will hold your spot on the list for up to 3 days if you pre arrange this with us. With prior approval, we may also accept a check for remaining balance but the check must have cleared by the time the puppy is picked up.
We may also facilitate a transfer from your bank to our bank, for the remaining balance due. I see that many banks are doing bank to bank transfers although I’ve not used this option on many occasions and would have to look into it and possibly set up my account to receive the payment, however, it may be an option for payment.
Choosing a Puppy”
Appointment for Viewings: For those on the Reserve list, we will set aside a weekend for viewings. We will set up times for the buyers, beginning with #1 on the list, to come out and view and interact with the puppies. We will schedule them at least 1 hour apart, and allow ½ hour viewing times, so that the puppies don’t get overly tired. We don’t want the puppies to get sick, so we ask that buyers don’t come with anyone that is sick or bring their other pets. The date and time is to be determined. In past, we’ve made the viewing available after the pups turned 6 weeks old and had their 1st set of shots. We will make every effort to notify the buyers with ample advance notice of the viewing times. We can only continue to allow the buyers to make the determination of what puppy they choose if they notify us of the puppy they choose at the time required, otherwise, it will hold up all the other sales and we will have to pick for the buyer and not be able to offer this service again in the future. We’ve had people on a list like this for the past 2 litters and it worked well. Most breeders simply choose the puppy for the buyer as it’s a much easier system and no home visits. We like to continue to offer this service so the buyer is able to interact with the puppies and have a say about which they choose. Of course, the buyers always ask about the puppy’s traits and characteristics when considering a pick and we provide all the information we can to help ensure a good match.
Buyer or Seller Choosing the Puppy: We do recommend that the buyer visits the puppy in person. If that isn’t possible, then we will happily use the information we have about the puppy and the family to choose a puppy for that family. We will also provide pictures and information online for the buyer’s enjoyment. We like to give the buyer the opportunity to pick their choice of puppy, but in the very rare case, where we feel that a puppy would not be compatible with a family, then we do retain the right to override the buyer’s choice about a particular puppy. We don’t anticipate that this will happen however, our highest concern is to the current and future health and well-being of our dogs.
We offer all our puppies with a 3 day Healthy Puppy Guarantee, 1 year guarantee against specific Congenital Health Conditions both as outlined in Health Contract provided upon pickup and info on link to left (Vet exam required within 3 days after arriving home), AKC Limited Registration Application-$25 fee paid to AKC if requested, Copy of 5 Generation Pedigree, Copy of Vet Records including Exams and Shots, Dew Claws Removed, and a Puppy Gift Pack with a Comforting Toy to transition home with. Health Guarantee is outlined on link to left and copy will be provided upon pickup of puppy. AKC Limited Registration doesn’t include breeding rights and warranties are not transferrable.
Puppies will be available to go to new owner's house at 8 weeks of age. Preferred pickup dates will be scheduled Fri March 20-Sun 23rd. If dates during that weekend can’t be negotiated then a date/time during the week of March 23-29 will be scheduled. Any date after that time will need to be preapproved by us and put in writing prior to purchase. It’s in the puppy’s best interest to get settled into its new home before it gets too overly attached to us. We also schedule other things in our lives, like remodeling, appointments, vacations and such after the sale of our puppies and in between the litters, so this makes it very difficult for us to offer extended care for the puppies that are sold. The amount of work and time that we put into raising them doesn’t allow us the time to do many other things at the same time. If we offer extended care then we may also incur additional costs for their 2nd round of shots or other medical fees, costs to feed and care for them, as well as the time we put into caring for them. If the puppy is not picked up as scheduled, then we reserve the right to charge a nominal fee of $10 day fee. If you are unable to pick up by the arranged pickup date, then please notify us of this asap, so that we can discuss any options. Any change to the terms must be put in writing and agreed upon by both Buyer and Seller. Failure to make other arrangements agreeable by both parties and put in writing, with regards to late pickup/extended care or non-payment in full, may at our discretion, result in termination of the contract and forfeit of any monies paid.
We discourage shipping a puppy Cargo method. This method of shipping is not recommended for a young puppy. We will consider requests on a case by case basis, although, we will not approve it when the conditions are unsafe for the puppy. i.e. Shipping a puppy to Texas in the middle of Summer. The Cargo section of the plane gets very hot and the planes are often left on the runway for hours. The puppies are then brought to a room and often left there for extended periods of time, until someone picks them up. We suggest that if you are purchasing a puppy from out of state, then you fly here and bring puppy back on plane with you. The puppy would be eligible. Airlines allow this for a charge. You can fly with the puppy under the front seat. We will assist in shipping. All costs associated with shipping a puppy, is the responsibility of the owner. Contact us for details on shipping options.
I’ve listed a long list of recommendations for picking up your puppy, travel home and welcoming home. Please refer to the link on the left side of this page. You may want to send us a toy or blanket of some sort so that the puppy can become familiar with it prior to you coming to pick him/her up. We will put the item in the area with the puppies and then you take it home with you after you pick up the puppy. We will also provide each buyer with an item that has been in our home to take home with them. This makes the puppy feel more comfortable so the transition will be smoother. We also provide a Puppy Gift Pack of some very cool gift items to get you started. When picking your puppy up, please bring a box or crate, old towels and a blanket. I would suggest coming with a driver and rider so that the rider. If you don’t have a rider, then you should definitely bring something to put the puppy in. Line the crate or box with an old towel or place a towel over the rider’s lap, as the puppy will normally get sick during the drive home.
Ensure you have purchased the items that the puppy will need once it gets home. They will need a list of items, including, water and food bowl, toys, dog bones for teeth cleaning and chewing, toothbrush and toothpaste, slicker brush and/or stainless steel comb, quality shampoo/conditioner, sleeping area such as a mat, bed, kennel or crate, quality food dry and/or moist (stick with the same brand we use or gradually change brands so not to get the puppy sick). We currently feed the puppies California Natural Dog food, small bites and also Cesars Dog Food puppy formula. We also bake beef liver and dice up into small pieces and mix up with the moist food and feed to them. We also give our Adult Dogs daily vitamins.
