Arizona/Southwest/S California Breeders?

Can anyone recommend any breeders in Arizona, or Nevada, Colorado, Southern California or New Mexico??

I am looking for a Havanese puppy but would like to get this puppy after August or September. So a litter expected in July or August would be perfect.....

Please let me know. I would appreciate it! It is very hard to tell over the internet and it is always nice to talk with someone who has bought from a specific breeder.....

Thanks! Lisa

Check with the Havanese club of America's breeder refer person. There are a number of reputable breeders in your mentioned area. Be patient, however, alot of breeders have a waiting list and unless a home for unexpected reasons becomes unavailable, you might have to wait for another litter. That happened my last litter. I had 2 people wanting a female but had only one. The first on my list had come to see her at about 8 weeks. They had made arrangements on picking her up and just prior had to back out because of a medical reason. The other family was very happy not to wait longer.

Thanks......

Thank you...... I did find that club, but I would love to talk to or hear from people who have bought from a specific breeder too. I do know that if you are a member of the club you are required to do the recommended health testing, but also they don't always check that. It is self-policed.

I just want a breeder who doesn't mind answering questions if you have some and who cares about the dogs and the breed, not just sales......

After talking to the HCA contact, pm me and I'll let you know if I know of them and/or people who have gotten a pup from them.
