Hi Denise! Welcome to the forum.

Lovelink Havanese doesn't ring a bell. Do you know the breeder's name or location? Have you verified the health testing of the puppy's parents?

Denise, welcome to the Forum. You are in the right place to find out all you need to know about all things Havanese. What a wonderful choice for your first pet ever. Good luck in your search.


PS - lately none of us has heard of any of the breeders mentioned by new folks. One of these days someone is going to hit on one that we all know and then imagine the responses......

There is no mention of any health testing on the website, plus no mention if they parents are champs or not. What sort of health guarantee do they provide? That is also not mentioned!

Welcome to the group Denise. If it wasn't for this forum I would not have known what to ask the breeders out there to tell the good from the bad. Ask any questions you have, and believe me, nothing is ever silly. You wil find that this forum is a great place to get honest answers. Best of luck to you, your puppy is on its way to you

Hi and

I just looked at the Lovelink site, and honestly...I'd keep looking around if I were you. Some red flags are there isn't any information about health testing, some of those dogs look very small to me (? is that just me?)

Are you in Washington??

Have you emailed the HCA for a referral in your area? That might be something to do. Take your time and find a great breeder that cares about health...it will be SO worth it in the long run, we hear way too many stories of impulse puppy buying and heartbreak/health conditions

Nice to meet ya!
