Breeder in Texas

Is anyone familiar with a lady named Joan Roane who lives just south of San Antonio, TX? I am interested in one of her puppies but since I am a novice, I wanted to see if anyone had any feedback on her. Thanks for your help.

Better yet, if the parent get ALL the testing and get a CHIC number that's great. You still have to make sure all the tests results are good. The CHIC number means that the parents have had all the health tests for a particular year, eyes, hips, OFA elbows & patella etc.

Thank you ALL for your responses. I am actually e-mailing two ladies named Roane (very confusing). The first one is JCRoane (Jeanne) at Southern Silks Havanese in Jeanerette, LA. The other lady whose puppy I'm really interested in is Joan Roane in Campbellton, TX. I did find her puppy on PuppyFind.com. I will definitely ask the questions all of you suggested (VERY helpful) and in the meantime, if anyone else has anything to add to this, PLEASE let me know! Thanks again!

I would steer clear of puppy.find. Just my opinion. A cheaper price now, could easily result in big-time expense in vet bills, let alone the heartache if something turns out to be seriously wrong. Too risky for me.

Eileen,
I have a friend who did get a dog off puppyfind... a POM from a good breeder who shows, health test, etc. I think it may be a good place to find a puppy but you have to screen any breeder the same way. Get CERFS and look them up don't just take their word. Same way if you found a breeder through word of mouth, HCA, etc. I would have the same check in place!

Thanks Marsha and Amanda for your advice. Oddly enough, there are several Havanese on Puppyfind.com with a $2,000+ price tag. I have checked some of the websites out but will be very careful before I sign on the dotted line. I'm sure I'll have more questions and need everyone's expertise before I make a decision. Thanks to all of you!

HI Eileen there are breeder on that site that are doing all the testing but you have to check it out like you would with any breeder. If they have a few different breeds stay clear if they are not willing to give you soap pictures run common since type thing you know what you want you dont want any health issue if you can steer away there is never 100% that your dog will never have something wrong just because of test but with out the test you have a greater chance of something will go wrong.I sure hope you fine what you are looking for Just remember Research on the parents and breeder.And on your contract you can also ask people here its a very great place to learn lots
