I don't want to imply that Ciara isn't a lovely puppy, and I am sure that you love her to pieces, and she sure looks adorble. But with just a very little internet research, I was able to find the Fromm's. They clearly are puppy mill breeders.

Don't feel bad... You are not the first (or unfortunately, the last) to be taken in by a pet store who tells their buyers that the puppies are bred by "a wonderful family in the midwest". The important thing is that in the future, if tou choose to get another dog, you will hopefully have learned to buy directly from a reputable breeder.

Reputable breeders do not sell puppies to pet stores.

Seriously, I already read up on my breeders. Pretty hilarious to say the least. I don't have an issue with my breeder or Hav and I have not been taken by anyone....but if it makes you feel better, Hav at it. LOL!!

I could go on but I'mNotInterested.Com.

Good luck with that attitude and your pup! I hope she's all that you believe her to be...It took me 41 years of dogs (and so many sad stories) and experience to learn the value of a GOOD breeder to get a healthy pup and (hopefully) many years with my love-girls! Cause there ain't nothin' worse then loosin' your babies WAY before their time!

I agree. It happens to the best of us...even me! I never even knew what a puppymill was 8 years ago. I was buying my first dog and didn't realize I was dealing with a broker. She actually cared for these pups though. She would go get what people were looking for because she felt she was saving a life. Then she would sell them as if she bred them herself. When Bella came down with a liver shunt and mouth problems costing over 5000.00, the lady gave me my 1750.00 back that I paid for Bella. I didn't figure out she was a broker until I did some investigation. I did respect the fact she cared enough to give me my money back. I know Bella's brother ended up with a liver shunt too. I know for a fact the lady did the surgery on her brother, Bubba.

I did a quick search on Linda fromm/ havanese and she does show up on a website called:

Their Kennel appears to have violations way back in 2004, I didn't linger to find more dirt on them there, but judging that they have 186 adult dogs, I'd say they really aren't a small family breeder..

There is a link on google about complaints regarding THe Fromm's:

Description: JOHN & LINDA FROMM

Adult dogs 186
Weaned Puppies 14
Puppies 47
