well.....

Unfortunately, their website isn't the greatest. It could be that they aren't website designers and don't realize what they need to have up there. The breeder I got my Jack from doesn't even have a website but she does meet all of the basic good breeder criteria.

At the top of the breeder forum, there is a thread that is 'sticky' into place. It has all the FAQ we have agonized over. These are the basic questions you would ask any breeder. Here is a link as well.

Just by the website, the 'Family Raised Havanese' raises red flags. Do they even have a kennel or business name? I could be wrong and they will have oodles of documentation, pedigrees, certification, etc... just waiting to be sent out.

I would proceed cautiously.

TTFN,
Pam

I would want to verify that they are actually getting the proper testing done for hips, patella, etc. The way it is worded as "vet checked including hips and patellas" makes me wonder. They very well may be doing it properly, just the wording of it makes me wonder.

Their website raises a red flag for me too. It doesn't seem as though they do the required testing and register the results as all they state is "vet checked". I would also be leery about having a puppy shipped. Please do further research. You can check with the Havanese Club of America website for breeders too and do read the forums section regarding red flags when researching breeders. Good luck in your search.
