Looking for Breeder in Atlanta Area

This is my first post on this forum!! After some research based on our needs and family we decided a Havanese is probably the best dog we can get. I have 2 boys 9 and 8 and we live in a quiet neighborhood with lot of kids. I don't know anyone in our area who has a Havanese...so I was lost about where to get started....till I found this forum.

I did read through all the stickies on this forum regarding picking the right breeder etc., However, I can't find a breeder in Atlanta area( at least via internet)...Can anyone help?

Thank you
Sunita

I got Beau from Noah's Little Ark in Chickamauga, GA. Looking back, there may have been some red flags I missed, but I got a great dog, he's healthy, and I just love him!!

I guess you got lucky!!! Have you heard of Windyhill Havanese or Noble World ? Both are in Georgia. I want to find someone close by so that I can meet the parents at least one time before we decide to choose that particular breeder...

Not sure why you say I "got lucky." Duane was very straight forward, open and accommodating with me from the beginning -- and still is. I just love Beau! He's perfect to and for me. Any diversion from what should have been was mostly related to my impatience. Just an FYI.

Windyhill and NobleGold both health test and show their dogs before breeding them. You can find the health results on the OFA website: www.offa.org


That's all I've got for you. The dogs are beautiful, and some of the pedigrees contain names of prominent show and breeding dogs.

I know quite a few in that area. Julie at Windy Hill is a sweetheart. Connie Lewis which is Nirvana Havanese is really great! She really does all the health testing, unlike some that just say they do, I won't name names. And she actually is currently actively showing her dogs. In the last month I have been to two shows with her. I just played with some pups she had at a show this past weekend. She has been doing it a long time and has great dogs. I think she is having problems with her website because it got a virus. I can get her info if you can't get it off of her website. . Let me know if you need any info.
