Noblegold Havanese & KingsKids Havanese Opinions

I have been searching for a reputable breeder with pups over the past few months. Close to me is KingsKids Havanese in New Market, TN. Carol, the breeder, seemed very nice and knowlegable on the phone. We have an appointment to visit her farm on Thursday to meet her pups and their parents. Her pups are AKC registered and she does do the necessary health testing.

The other is Noble Gold Havanese in Helen, Ga. I've read mixed things about the breeder, Nancy. Some say she is wonderful, some question her. She has offered to drive here with the pups or said that we are more than welcome to visit. I am still unclear about her health testing practices. She said that she does test and register the results, and I have read posts stating so, but I also read somewhere that she does not. She does not talk about it on her website, though.

Please advise. I am leaning towards KingsKids right now, but Nancy has some beautiful pups, too. What if we meet them all and like one of hers? Of course, we don't have to purchase a pup from either, but it would be nice to find our new baby sooner than later. Puppy searching is stressful!

I don't know anything personally about Noblegold. Its very easy to look up the parents of the litter on offa.org

Not everyone registers test results, but they should unless they are willing to provide copies of health certificates.

I do know one family with a Noblegold Hav and they love her and are very happy. She's bigger than my Tibetan Terrier which may be why they don't show a lot.

I also don't know Noblegold other than looking at their website. A few red flags for me:

1. Advertising themselves as "specializing in chocolates." IMO, good breeders don't focus on that color.
2. Charging extra if people don't pick up their puppy BEFORE 10 weeks. All the good breeders I've spoken to hand over puppies to new owners at 10-12 weeks old.
3. They have A LOT of dogs - 10 dams and 8 sires (+ 4 rottweilers). It's hard to imagine that all the adult dogs and puppies are being housed inside with the family. And with that many dogs how does each puppy get enough attention?
4. Willing to ship puppies.
