Breeder Question

Hello - I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wanted to check to see if anyone was familiar with Avonlea Havanese - a breeder based in Pennsylvania. I am considering getting a puppy from them and wanted to see if there was any personal feedback out there.

Thank you!

I haven't heard of them so I looked up their website. They have puppies from 2 females that aren't listed on offa.org. I don't know who the sire is of if he's health tested.

Never heard of them. Be careful, don't get "sucked in" by cute puppy pics. Do your homework regarding health testing of their dogs and be sure to check out their contract and guarantee. Several here have sad stories to tell when they let their hearts lead instead of their heads.

Good luck w/your search!

I had contacted them way back when I was looking, but the timing wasn't right and I didn't want to wait. Too bad, Laurie , we could have been related.
