Thank you for your responses. You gave me more points to ponder. I did check out the HCA website. If anyone has a recommendation, feel free to private message me.

I see that "Eddie" has since deleted their post.
Oh, OK, thanks! I was just confused!

I know this response is very late and am sure that the original poster has already made a decision, but I wanted to share some of my experience with Harlequin Havanese if anyone else reads this thread in the future. I had looked at getting a puppy from her, but did not for 3 main reasons. 1) She does not do the HCA recommended health testing and will give you many excuses why it's ok that she doesn't. 2) She would not allow me to visit and meet the puppies or even parents in person. 3) she was very hesitant to share pedigrees of the parents with me. When I did further research on my own, I realized that the sire of the litter was only seven months old.

That isn't just a red flag that is a bag of flags on fire!

I do not think there is ANY good reason for not having the health testing done.

Need help finding a reputable breeder

I have been thinking about welcoming a dog into our family and I have settled on the beautiful Havanese breed. I have 3 children between the ages of 4 and 7 and my main concern was finding a breed that would fit in well with the kids.

I have been trying to do my research on where and how to buy as I just don't want to walk into a random pet shop and spend money on a dog that is potentially a puppy mill dog that might have some major health complications later on down the road.

Can anyone recommend a reputable breeder in or around the NY area? I am located in Suffolk County NY (Long Island)

Thanks
