When I really started contacting breeders and getting serious about getting a Havanese I was nearly derailed from the beginning.
There was another woman in Fort St John making inquiries about Havanese puppies and the breeders felt she was a puppy mill operation so there were warnings amongst the breeders about people from Fort St John.
Thankfully this did not cause me to get black-balled and I did get my wonderful boy.
However, they were right to be wary as it appears she's very dangerous.
I ran across this story today (oddly I hadn't heard about it until now, but it happened during the summer) and this is the SAME woman who was making inquiries about Havanese puppies at the same time as I was!!
