Big Branch Creek?

This is the breeder of my male havanese.
I have already bought a puppy from this breeder and he is brilliant and adorable. He is still too young for me to know how he will turn out, but he is already potty trained, and knows sit and down. I know if i worked harder with him he would already stay and come on comand (these comands are still in progress, and potty training was higher on the list.)
I am just interested if anyone else here has heard of this breeder in case I want another puppy later to keep Winston company!

It's been discussed once before. I don't personally know anything about this breeder, but here's the link to the previous thread.

Your puppy sounds smart and it sounds like you are enjoying him! Welcome to the forum!

This breeder seems not all that great from just looking at the website. No health testing it would seem is done on the dogs. The health guarntee is a joke..

How much do they sell their puppies for?

Hmmm. They test eyes and knees once a year in the general physical of all their parents. Do you think it needs to be done more often? My Veterinarian said the first vaccines were done too early but other wise he is doing great(well...except for getting neutered on friday)

Winston was 900.00. They usually sell them for 1200 to 1800 but she has too many puppies right now and wanted to reduce her population. I can see how that might be a scam but I thought everything went well. Also, I am not out to show or breed so hopefully just got a good boy!

Well it seems they have so many dogs. between the 2 breeds, they have almost 30 adult dogs! In the homepage of the website it says they are a small breeder.. 30 dogs seem HUGE to me... lol
also looks like they have a litter every month or so, or every few weeks if you look at both breeds. I think some people on this forum have some experience with this breeder, so hopefully they will post a reply!

I investigated this breeder when I was searching for a Hav. I think her name is Donna too?? This was 5-6 months ago and she said the same thing to me, "Too many puppies born so, instead of 1000-1200, we're selling them for $900."
I don't think they do the full range of health testing on the parents, but I do think they care a lot about their doggies. And they appear to live on this big ranch where the dogs have lots of room! LOL What was Winston's birth name?

I dont think they actually have thirty adult dogs but if I was breeding these pups I could see how it might happen.
Winston came to us as Breeze. I picked him up out of a line up He is a sable which I know know means he he will end up a blond.
He has beautiflul grey tips at his feet and around his face
I did some home work, but not enough, because I envisioned him having a beard and dark ears and paws, though now I know those tips will be gone once he gets a hair cut. I just didn't understand about havanese coloring. I learned a lot from this forum actually.
Winston's name was Breeze when he came home. He is so awesome!

In th over a year and a half we looked before Sully, this breeder ALWAYS had too many puppies. They were on puppyfind.com always seemed to have at least one litter. And she had reds and chocolates there when we wanted them, 1400 plus shipping, something told us no.
