Can anyone recommend a good breeder in GA /TN/AL?

Hello All! I feel lucky to have found this site. Looking for a reputable breeder via the internet is very tricky... You just never know what you're really getting. And most breeders that I do come across are half way across the country! If anyone here could recommend a reputable breeder in Tennessee, Georgia or Alabama, that would be so appreciated! Thank you!

You'll get some good leads from people here, but if none of them have puppies (and that an easily happen) don't rule out the idea of a puppy from farther away. We chose a breeder a long way from us (in NC and we are in MA) but they came with impeccable references, and I spent quite a bit of time getting to know them on the phone and via e-mail. Then I took THEIR advice, which is "Never buy a puppy without visiting the breeder!" I flew down to meet the puppies in person, and bring Kodi home. Not only did it make me feel that much more comfortable with them as breeders, but they also spent a good deal of time teaching me how to bathe him, clip his nails, etc. It was also really nice just getting to know them better! We still correspond regularly!

Thanks so much, Ladies! Karen, NC is very close to me, comparatively speaking. Would you mind messaging me the breeder you used in NC? The fact that they showed you how to bathe your dog, and trim it's nails,etc., is amazing! I need help like that, as I've never had a dog before! Thank you!

I would PM you, but it's not really necessary... The kennel name is part of Kodi's name! Starborn Havanese. You can Google them. Tom King, one of the owners (Pam is the wife) posts regularly on the forum.

The only problem is that I'm pretty sure they have a waiting list right now, so it depends on whether you are willing to wait for a puppy. This is often the case for good breeders. (IMO, it's well worth waiting to get a puppy from the "right" breeder!) If you can't wait, they might be able to point you in the direction of other good breeders in the area who do or will have puppies available.

noblegold in Helen GA. I have spoken with them, and know folks who got their hav from them and they think very highly of them as well. Should I get another one from a breeder, they would be first on my list
she has pups and also and older dog)

I'm pretty sure we have another forum member with a Noblegold dog too!

I'm not sure where you're located but if FL is an option there are at least a couple of good breeders there. One is Lynn Nieto from Los Perritos (where my Panda is from). The other is Janet at Yuppy Puppy. One of our forum members has 2 of Janet's dogs. Both of them have websites and are reputable breeders....
