Have you heard of this breeder?

Hi again,

Since I posted my first (and introductory thread) I have had lots of PMs and good advice. I definitely have some options to check out in my search for a puppy. I have the name of a breeder just over an hour away and am wondering if anyone has heard of him...havanesehouse in Lansing, MI? He has puppies available, but I don't want to make anymore mistakes and would love to know someone has bought a puppy here and is happy.

Laura

Laura,
Did you read their website? I find it interesting that some makings and chocolates are worth more money. I do not know them nor have I heard of them but is there anyone else that might be a better prospect? Did you ask them for the registered names of the parents so you can go to www.offa.org to check out their health testing? They may be very nice people but from reading their website I had a hard time with it. There is nothing to help you do anything but buy their puppies. They look completely geared towards make sure you buy a puppy and that once they get your deposit it's not coming back to you. I was hoping to see something that might help more from the website but I am still not sure about them. Have you checked with the local club in your area? I do know a breeder that just moved to Minden City, Michigan and I will private email you her information, once I figure out how to do that.

When I did a search for havanese house, it came up as Van Cort's Havanese and Cotons if that helps anyone. They are members of the Independent Hav Club.

As Megan said they do not mention any health testing on the site but I do recognize a few of the names that do have health testing. I would just get the parents registered names and verify the info on www.offa.org website. Good luck.

I know of about 4 dogs from that breeder, including mine (although..it was one dog from that breeder the sire was from her sister, who is another breeder in Florida)

I don't think they health test all the dogs, only found a few on offa. they might have testing they don't post on offa, but I don't know..I'd ask them. I think Gucci's parents were cerf'd, baer tested and blood tested. Not sure on hips or legs, but Gucci's legs are really straight.

Me and my friend, Christy..both had problems w/ really bad separation anxiety, but that's gotten a bit better. Granted, she'll sit at the door and wait for me (looking out the glass!) whenever I'm gone..but she won't cry anymore. There is another person here that just got a dog from them.

I dont know of any health problems from the ones I know, or my dog, she's a real love bug. Although, I didn't really know about all the health testing when I got Gucci. So far, no problems.

Michele, if you look around, you can find veterinarians that do not require anesthesia. Also, you don't test the puppies/"babies" (except for BAER). CERF can be done later. Patellas are done after a year old. Hips can be done sans anesthesia after two years old. You can contact your local Golden Retreiver club for any referrals of good hip veterinarians. They always seem to know where to go.

My understanding of chondrodysplasia (CD) is that it isn't new and it isn't involved with breeding small dogs. On the contrary, a lot of dogs with CD have larger heads, but short front legs.
