Contact info Wyndward Havanese, NJ??

Hi everyone: Anyone have info how to contact Wyndward Havanese in NJ? Seem like terrific breeders (and a moderate drive from us) but only contact info is through website email, one of which bounces back; the other (gmail) hasn't gotten a response though I've tried several times in the last few weeks. Scoured Internet but can't find specific town, last name, so can't get a phone number. Sen PM through this forum. Radio silence.
Looked on FB, found closed group of Wyndward Puppy Owners...no response.

And four-year-old Chico is looking for a Hav sibling, maybe this spring...

Update, anyone? thanks so much..xo

Sometimes people stop breeding, but don't get around to taking their site down, or are just bad at responding to email if they don't have puppies planned. There are lots of SMALL breeders who only have a litter every year or two. I would widen my search if you aren't getting a response.

Thanks...just puzzled, since this one seems very well established, long-standing, excellent dogs, and seems to promise puppies for this spring.

What can I say? Some people are just bad at responding to email!

Glad you are enjoying watching my babies work!

Hi,
I like a challenge-
maybe this will help...
I looked up one of their dogs from this page
Wyndward Havanese - Our Havanese
Jersey, Ch. Prairiwinds It Ain't Manhattan
I then went to find her in the Havanese Gallery which produced these results:
Prairiwinds It Ain't Manhattan - Havanese Gallery

Breeder: Linda Wanamaker
Owner: Farah Whitver - Melamud - Bayonne, NJ, USA
E-mail: [email protected]
Website: www.wyndwardshavanese.com

Sex: Female
Color: Tri-colour
Date of birth: 15.12.2003
Sire: CH Alderons Shelley's Rocky
Dam: Shelley's Prairie China Doll


So now you have a last name and a town - Good luck in your search - Not sure if the "We are expecting an exciting litter in March! " is referring to 2017... in my loooong search for myHavanese pup breeder, I came across many, MANY outdated and long abandoned websites... some had better clues like a year included which made it more obvious- lol
If you don't hear back or find them with this additional added information, and then March comes and goes and the site is not updated, (if you can wait that long) it will be safe to say it may be time to move on to another wonderful breeder.

eta- looks like she co-owns this beauty
CH. Wyndward's Truth Or Dare Of Amberly - "Derry"
http://havanesegallery.hu/show_dog_en.php?id=29419
This gives a different town for Farah

Breeder: Farah Whitver And Paul A. Melamud
Owner: Judy And Frank Ambler And Farah Whitver - Halfmoon, NY, USA
E-mail: [email protected]

Sex: Female
Date of birth: 29.09.2008
Sire: CH. Sandcastles Magic Man At Wyndward
Dam: CH Prairiwinds It Ain't Manhattan

Genius Research re Breeder!!

I am awestruck. Unbelievable. In my daytime gig, I do a lot of research and have nimble skills, but you're amazing. Going to find my jaw, which has clattered to the floor. Fantastic, thanks!!!!!! (though I may indeed have to move on to other breeders...you could be absolutely right about the year, sigh).

I have some other names but this one seems/ed terrific.

Will pursue these leads. In the meantime, THANK YOU!!!

I did find her on Facebook under Farah Whitver Melamud. It looks like she was adding people to the Wyndward Puppy Owners group as recently as 2 months ago, so it seems she's still active in the breed. I would reach out to her via Facebook message and go from there

I tried...I emailed her to join the group (couldn't msg her because the group is closed and you have to be a Friend first...or some such...I'm not that fluent in FB)...but no answer. I think she's not the original breeder, but clearly seems very involved in the Wyndwards and in championing Havanese. Fingers, paws crossed...thank you!

She is listed as the breeder of all of the Wyndward dogs on Havanese Gallery, so I'm thinking Farah is more involved than you think. If you go to her Facebook page (not the Puppy Owners page, which is just for those who have bought a puppy from her), you should be able to message her. I was able to just click the message button as someone with no mutual friends. Try her there, not via the closed group
