Breeder Experience ?

http://home.earthlink.net/~hawkhavenhavanese/

Just spoke with this breeder from NJ, I found on the Delaware Valley Havanese Club..We had a great Conversation..

Has anyone here heard of her or purchased from her?

As you know Im new here..and I am wanting a Havanese but we have a toddler, so we will wait 1-2 yrs for a puppy, or try to get a young adult....
This breeder was the only breeder I found in NJ that I though twoudl be reputable..

I believe that she only has a few havanese and that she is mentored by my breeder, Diane from Woodland Havanese. With that being said, I would imagine that she does all of the appropriate health testing, etc. I believe that Misty is a Woodlands dog and that she has the same mom as my Brady With that being said, I am sure she is awesome

Thanks!

Thanks!
Yes, we had a great 1/2 hr conversation, and felt in my gut she is great...
She believes she maybe may have a pregnant dog now, but we are not ready now anyway, so maybe in the future..At least I have a good contact

Just wondering.... why would a toddler prevent you from getting a puppy? are you worried that you wouldn't have enough time for both? Or are you worried that the toddler will smush the puppy?

To be honest, I think 5-8 years old are more dangerous. They are bigger and expect more from the puppy. Or will 'hug and squeeze' the puppy. We got a puppy when my kids were 3 and newborn. We got our second puppy when they were 8 and 5. There were times I feared for Nessie. It was much harder to keep them away from the puppy when they were older.

TTFN,
Pam

Morris:
I guess we have just read alot aout toddlers and puppies not mixing..For instance I may not be able to potty train it correctly, if Im busy with my toddler..It may chew on my toddlers toys on the floor...Etc...Time devotion, or that toddlers tend to be wild and throw things, and dont want the puppy to be scared..
Plus, we just feel maybe when she is 3,or so, but right now she is 27 months, and she is not even potty trained yet, so I guess I thought it may be too hectic...But then again, its not lie we have a newborn or manything, and Im sure many people do it..So we will see...

Just in case

Just in case you have any interest, I saw this adult 1.5 year old female Havanese available through an Ohio breeder -- very close to me -- although I know nothing about them. There are no red flags on their website.

If you go through the website, there is also a young adult male, although strangely they do not show a current picture, but rather a picture when he was a mature puppy.

http://monarch-kennel.com/gracepuppies.html

If I had not adopted rescues, an adult would be the way I would personally go as I really like the idea of seeing exactly how the personality is, the size, and the color -- none of which you can know how they will turn out. While puppies are super, I have adopted many adult dogs and I have always fallen in love with them.

An instant Havanese if used to young children might be a way to go for you now. Then in a few years after you have quickly developed MHS you can get another one!

I agree that you have your hands full with a toddler. Abby loved our grandchildren - they were three and one when we got her. But, she did chew up a lot of Fisher-Price people!!!

If this breeder is linked to Woodland, she's doing the right thing. I recognize her from some of the Delaware havanese club events. Good luck!
