Stay away from Blossom Havanese in Woodstock. Two people I know have gotten dogs that ended up with horrible allergies and badly bowed legs. I am from NYC and New Paltz and I went to Florida to get my dog. Look for a great breeder and don't worry about a little inconvenience in the short-term - long-term it will pay off. Best of luck and welcome to the forum!

There are several good ones in Florida. Mine was Lynn Nieto at Los Perritos in Brooksville near Tampa. Several people on here have gotten dogs from Janet Birdsall at My Yuppy Puppy in Ocala. And there are some amazing breeders on this site too. Tom and Pam King at Starborn Havana Silk Dogs are in NC,, and there are several others on here that sound like absolutely great caring breeders. Keep looking around this forum and you will find them. I am just naming a few of the ones whose names I remember. There are others, and I don't mean to leave anyone out, but I have a horrible memory!! Best of luck!

Jasmine I don't know anything about other than what I can see on their facebook page. They appear to show and used a stud I am familiar with - Robbie, actually he is on my short list for breeding my dog to. Viva Havanese is Ruthellen Vial, who I have spoken to over the phone. She is a very experienced show handler and her mother used to breed show bichons. She has been in Havanese for roughly 15 years or so, I can't remember exactly. Viva I would be comfortable with, Jasmine, they seem to have good dogs but you would have to dig deeper to see if she does the required health tests etc. However keep in mind that even if a breeder has such and such dog and uses this or that handler does not make them an ethical breeder. There is such a thing called "kennel blind" where people think, oh any dog out of this breeder will be amazing, simply because of the prestige of the name attached to it. You still need to use caution. But I'm already familiar with Viva so I am pretty comfortable with them.

I am delighted with my pup from Woodland Havanese, in Philadelphia. The breeder is affiliated with the Havanese Club of America and active in the Delaware Valley Chapter. She had puppies (born in April) available. www.woodlandhavanese.com
