Breeders, would you consider going to Cuba now...

For a Havanese?

I have read that many breeders get bitches from Cuba. Now that things may start to change (for Americans who want to visit Cuba), would you consider it?
I wonder if they do health tests there, considering that there is only one Vet Clinic in Havana.

No. Besides, as a US citizen, I don't think I even have the option of considering it.

Wait and see. I am optimistic that you may. Besides there is always a 3rd country.

If your citizenship was not an obstacle would you consider it? if Not, Why not?

PS: I am just curious.

First of all, I have no idea what style of Havs are over in Cuba. (We have more than enough variety in style to select from here with proven health testing done.) Secondly, the health testing (or lack thereof) is a huge concern of mine. Thirdly, there is too much to do here within the dogs that are available to work on the goal of getting to Havanese of our standard.

I really wonder if they do health testing there.

Unfortunately, they don't have access to health testing. Not that they don't want to, but it's out of reach for one reason or another. They do have an active breed club there-Club Habanero de Cuba. There was a good article in a magazine a while back written by an English Judge with pictures that was very good about a Club Habanero show. People from other countries that can travel freely to Cuba send dogs there to get their Cuban Championships so a lot of dogs you see pictures of in Cuba on the internet are not actual Cuban dogs.

I don't know about the "many" part of "many get bitches from there". I know one person that has one from there.

I know of two, does that make many?

I have hopes that I get to meet some Havs in Cuba if I ever go back!

I would love to go to Cuba- but I don't see it in my plans any time soon! Ha!
If I was able to go there, and I liked what I saw with the Havanese, sure I would prob bring one home!
