The Dam Serafina:
Our Dam Serafina is a very Special Dog! She has every good quality that you could possibly want in a dog. She’s a beautiful dog, with a thick wavy coat of white and cream fur. She has a beautiful look and disposition. She’s extremely healthy, gentle, playful, energetic but not hyper, loving but not dependent, protective but not aggressive and beautiful. She’s active and walked 2 miles each day until she had the litter of puppies. She regularly plays with her son Sergei. She was still playing right up until she had her litter, although, not as much as she had before.
She’s a good Mother. She is so content being a Mother. She seems so happy when you come to see her puppies, and you can see the pride she has in them. She is quite content on taking good care of them. She even plays with them when they get older. She is really a quite impressive Mother Dog.
She’s the perfect dog with a great disposition and traits. She was our first Havanese Dog. After we got her, we were hooked on the breed. She’s a very good bred dog, within the breed of Havanese. Once we got her, we were hooked. She was purchased to be our pet and so we never planned to show her, although, we were certain she would have excelled. She comes from a Champion Bloodline, although, we didn’t get her to be a show dog. Many of the dogs in her lineage are Champion show dogs. I have the 5 generation pedigree available. We plan to keep her forever and would not consider ever parting with her even after she is done breeding.
We’ve bred her with another AKC Champion Havanese who is not on site but is a good quality Dog. We verified his health, and other traits, to ensure that he was a compliment to her gene pool. They have produced 6 very beautiful puppies.
We don’t plan to have another litter but it’s not a definite. We had originally not planned to have this litter. When determining if she would be bred again, we first brought her to the Vet again and had her examined. He determined that she was in excellent health. We then weighed all the other factors to determine if we would breed her again. We looked at her, health, disposition, traits, overall mental health, the size and number of her past litters, the demand for the puppies, the ease she had in birthing the puppies and nursing them, the health of her and her puppies from past litters, and the overall risk of her having another litter. There was no reason why we should not breed her again. All these answers came back in favor of breeding her again. She’s extremely healthy. We walk her 2 miles a day until she had the puppies. She’s happy and playful. She was full of energy, even playing right up until the last week of her pregnancy. She’s had always nursed her own puppies and never lost a puppy, although, she’s had some very big litters. In her 4 litters, she had 8-7-7-6. For a dog her size, this is pretty remarkable and is surely an indicator of nature giving her an edge by allowing her to have a big pack. She weighed about 14 pounds prior to her pregnancy. We are also careful to not over bred her. Her last litter born in April 2013, was a litter of 7 puppies. She’s had 4 litters in total, including this litter that we expect will be her last.
Not only is Serafina’s personality traits very appealing but she’s one of the prettiest dogs I've seen but so is her siblings. We actually kept her son from her 1st litter. His name is Sergei and he is equally as gorgeous. He is extremely fit, healthy, well behaved, smart, and beautiful and the sweetest dog you will ever know. He has long silky straight hair a perfect gait, and a good 12 lb weight. He gained all the best traits that were passed on from his Mom and the Sire. He is an indicator of the fine breed of puppies that she has born. Take a look on our Facebook and Comcast web pages so that you can see Serafina, Sergei and the other puppy’s pictures, as well as more information and recommendations from the new owners. Both Serafina and Sergei are healthy and very happy! We've placed so many well-adjusted puppies into the most loving families! We have lots of references from our past litters and many of those have posted comments on our FB page. From our 3 previous litters, we've actually sold 2 puppies to 3 different owners! We’re very proud of our track record.
What We Provide:
We offer a clean and loving environment, with socialization for all the puppies prior to them being homed. We set up a nice quiet area of the house for Serafina to whelp and nurse her puppies. When they are older, we put them into a more open part of the house so that they can spend more time with us and our other pets. We train them on the Misty Trails method of potty training so they use the indoors reusable puppy pad starting when they are very young. By the time they leave our home, they are normally regularly using the pad and also familiar with using the outdoors to potty, although, the degree of each varies and the actual potty training will begin at home, depending on the method that you choose to incorporate. Weather permitting, we give them outside time and they enjoy that so much! It's really cute to watch them all pile outside. A line of puppies all running outside to our covered porch area and fenced in back yard where we are always watching them and we join in the fun of course! We never kennel our puppies or dogs. We care for the needs of our Adult dogs as much as we do our puppies. We feed our Adult dogs quality dog foods and other proteins, as well as vitamins. We cater to our new Momma and ensure that she has everything that she needs to provide the puppies with the nurturing that they need to thrive. We spend a good deal of time in their area feeding them, playing with them, cleaning them, and loving of them. We don't allow them to stay in a messy area so that they don't get sick or pick up bad habits. Our dogs are not just for breeding. We breed our female because we want to share her qualities with other people. She is amazing! Her puppies are amazing!
Quality & Not Quantity:
We have one lady who we bred and we've not had a litter since April 2013. We don't try and squeeze in several litters a year and we are not burned out on taking care of the puppies or our Dam. We are most concerned with raising the litter the right way instead of worrying about quantity. We work hard to make sure that the puppies are well cared for and that we provide the foundation for them to have a great start without any emotional scars or disabilities! This makes for a more sound, secure and well-rounded puppy. Just like Not all breeds of dogs are the same; nor are all dogs within that breed the same. This applies to people and animals. The quality of dog and how it was raised makes a big difference in the traits that the puppy will grow to have.
You can pay more for another Havanese, as they often cost upwards of $2k. We have sold our puppies for an average of about $1600 and commanded as much as $2k. We wanted to make the puppies more accessible to other families and so we reduced our price of our last litter of 7 puppies, to a special reserve early price of $1350 and had all but 1 puppy sold prior to the litter even being born. The regular price is $1450 and we reserve the right to change the price at anytime. Hurry and reserve now. Don't miss out.
Be wary, of the lowest price puppies. You 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. Our Serafina is extremely healthy! 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.
Neglected or Traumatized Pets:
You may ask what you might get from a less expensive puppy. For example, we have another Male AKC Registered Havanese dog that we purchased from a "breeder" and this dog has some serious physical ailments and some personality traits that are not very appealing or sought after. We've worked much harder with him than we have with our Serafina or her son Sergei. We are now preparing to get some of his medical problems fixed. This will likely cost us a good amount of money. We were willing to put in the extra work with him so we decided to keep him but neutered him so that he could not have any puppies and pass on the undesirable genetic traits. Not everyone can put in the extra work with some of the neglected dogs. It takes a lot of time to help them. Depending on their traits, they can be very disruptive, time consuming and expensive to raise.
You can take steps to try and avoid getting a traumatized, neglected or sick dog like this by taking some simple steps. Do an internet search for disarming information or law suits. Are they accused of being a “puppy mill”? Is there any foundation to that accusation? Do they respond to your inquiries for information? Do they seem loving and concerned with the welfare of the puppies and the breed? Are they clean and is pickup in their home offered? Be wary about picking up the puppy outside of their home. This is sometimes a warning sign. 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.
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. They are extremely healthy with little known congenital problems and average lifespan is 14-17 years. According to the online weight calculator, I estimate that the full grown weight of a healthy puppy will be from 11-15 pounds from this litter of puppies. This is only an estimate and I make no guarantees to weight or fur color. The color of the Havanese fur is often known to change. It will sometimes change drastically and can turn into even more beautiful coloring. Most often it does this when the fur is dark colored.
Havanese are known to be Playful, Gentle, Responsive, Companionable, Intelligent, Affectionate, small but not fragile. Havanese are smaller dogs but not fragile. They are very sturdy and can actually play with small children without being aggressive or getting hurt. They are tough little dogs. They are energetic but not known to be hyper. They are really tough little dogs but very gentle. They are game for about anything. If you are active, then they are active. They will hike, swim, play and are pretty much game for any outdoors sport. If you are more sedative, then they are sedative. They are quite content to sit inside and be by their owner with a small amount of exercise. Like most dogs, they should be walked or have access to outdoors. They are really a perfect companion, therapy or assistance dog. They have relatively long life spans. They average 14-17 years. 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. The breed’s approximate weight is generally between 11-16 pounds.
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.

Any fees associated with a rejected check will be the responsibility of buyer.
Picking a Puppy
Until the puppies have been properly vaccinated at 6 weeks of age, then we can’t show them in person until they have their 1st set of shots. Until this time, we don’t allow visitors to see the puppies because they are too susceptible to various illnesses. Prior to this time, you can determine which puppy is best suited for you by asking for my recommeendation and reviewing the posts and pictures that I will post online. I will post many pictures of the puppies so that all prospective buyers can view the puppies as they grow.
We offer all our puppies with a 3 day healthy puppy guarantee, 1 year guarantee against specific Congenital Health Conditions outlined in contract, AKC Limited Registration Application, AKC 3 Generation Certificate for Framing, Copy of Serafina’s 5 Generation Pedigree, Copy of Vet Records including Exams and Shots, Dew Claws Removed, as well as an Awesome Puppy Gift Pack and Comforting Item from Litter to make transition to new home easier. We provide records of Vet exams and shots but for the health guarantee, please bring puppy to Vet within 3 days of arriving at your home. Refer to Health Guarantee link on left side for complete details on health guarantee. I'm sorry but we don't transfer breeding rights for the puppies and like any responsible breeder, we require spaying or neutering. We pay to file the litter and provide a farmable copy of the litter certificate to the new owner. We also provide an AKC limited registration application to the owner. If the owner wishes to file this with the AKC, then they will need to file the application with the required $25 fee to AKC.
Remaining Purchase Price:
You are not required to pay for the remaining balance until you come to pickup the puppy. Please be prepared to pay in full, at the time of pickup. Checks will need to be approved and must clear 2 weeks prior to pickup. We will also accept Paypal but they do charge a transfer fee. We will incur the transfer fee on the deposit but we will reuqire the buyer to pay the fee if they choose to use Paypal to transfer the remaining balance. Please include an additional $25 for the fee, when you send the remaining balance through Paypal. To avoid the fee, you can send the transfer though the Paypal friend link and use instant payment option. To avoid the transfer fee and delay for a check to clear, you may choose to pay in cash at the time of pickup. We actually prefer this method and will provide a written receipt at that time.
Please discuss with me if you do have a problem making payment or pickup by the date provided. Payment in full and pickup required by dates outlined here. Failure to do so, may result in us canceling the sale and forfeit of the monies paid, without any additional obligation. Buyer will be responsible for all fees associated with rejected payemnts.
For all those who have reserved or picked their puppy, then we ask that they be picked up by August 17th. They will be 9+ weeks old at that time. We will begin allowing them to be picked up and go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age, so on Friday, August 8th. We will schedule appointments within this time period for pickup. For anyone that has made purchase or reserved a puppy after August 11th, then we will schedule pickup within the next 7 days.
Please make the puppy a priority and pick him/her up by the date provided it’s in the best interest of the puppy and us to pick them up when they are still young, but old enough to be weaned from Mother. It causes a lot of stress on the puppy when it becomes too attached to us and then is removed from the home. It is during this period that I've noticed this happens the most. This is the during the Puppy's Fear Stage. If you have purchased a puppy, then I ask that you pick up by the timelines provided so by August 8-17th or if purchased after August 11, within a week of that time. I may reserve the right to charge a boarding fee of $10 day if pickup has not been made by this time. Discuss any payment or pickup issues with us.
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.
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. Make sure you have purchased the items that the puppy will need once it gets home. Be sure to have the items purchased and ready for the puppy at your 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 give our Adult Dogs daily vitamins, although, puppies should not need these. This is optional.
