Good breeder in Texas

Hello everyone! This is my first post, but I have been lurking for a while now. We live in TX, but we are willing to travel. Does anyone know of a good breeder in Texas? Our dog passed away a couple of years ago. We were devastated when she passed away. I have been doing a lot of research on Havs and believe this is the breed we want for a variety of reasons. We work out of the house. I am home most of the time. Anyway, any help to start off our search would be greatly appreciated. I just want a companion dog and also seriously thinking about training it to be a therapy dog.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Welcome! This is a wonderful breed. Sounds like a good fit too. You can try the Havanese Club of America. I know they have a breeder referral list. Also check out the thread on what to look for in a good breeder. Good luck!

Welcome, Karen. Can't help you with breeders in your area but wanted to mention that I've had Havanese since 1996 and ran my business from my home (now retired) and my guys were great companions, always with me in the office. If only they could have helped out with office duties! Good luck in your quest.

Hi Karen, I'm Karen too!

I'd like to urge you not to limit your search to only breeders in a small geographic area. Sometimes the right puppy is worth traveling for. The extra cost of flying to pick up your puppy really isn't that great, if you amortize it over the life expectancy of your dog!

I live in Mass, and got my puppy in NC... and haven't regretted it for a moment!

Thanks everyone! I have been looking over the breeder's websites found on the Havanese Club of America. I really don't mind traveling for a puppy or a young adult, so that we get the right one for us. I was just wanting to start out closer and then expand out, if necessary. This is really a great forum and very active. I have enjoyed pouring over the threads here!

Glad to have you here. There's just one rule... When you get your puppy, you HAVE to post PICTURES!!!
