Need to find a breeder that ships or is very close to nyc

I need a breeder who will ship or who is close enough to NYC for me to get there without a car. I don't have a car and I don't drive, I've lived in nyc all my life. I'd be willing to take the time to travel through bus or train, but I prefer not to fly. I want a reputable breeder, and I've contacted a few, but I want input on people who've actually dealt with these breeders. I've check the forms and breeder directories, but, I haven't found many that will ship and most of them are at least a two hr drive from nyc. I am on the waiting list of nychavanese.com, but they dont have a current litter and I am not to sure about there reputation. I really want a Havanese, I am also willing to take an adult.

Please respond.

I know that My Yuppy Puppy will hand deliver puppies. She is a reputable breeder.

I spoke some to Sheryl from Sheryl's Must Hav and she just had a litter as a matter of fact. She lives in NY and they were willing to drive one to NC for me so my guess is you might find luck with her. Good luck.

I heard that Sheryl should be avoided, from another thread. I also got a pm from a person who sounded very much like a breeder writing a review about themselves. She told me to buy from a place called "Rockhurst Havanese", anyone heard of that? They are based in Canada, sounds fishy to me.

I don't know about yuppy puppy, 550 dollars for transport seems a bit much. I've been speaking with nychavanese.com, havanesepuppies.com, and vivahavanese.com. Anyone have any opinions on them?

Interesting. I should have put the disclaimer on the bottom of my post that I did not end up purchasing from her but I will say I had very nice communications with her and felt good about her. That doesn't amount to a hill of beans, I guess, in the scheme of things.

Viva Havanese looks like it is worth further investigation. I'd avoid the other two.

Remember, with Yuppy Puppy, you are paying for someone to hand-transport your puppy, rather than stick it in cargo... a MUCH kinder way to transport a young puppy. That's what a plane ticket and a ticket for the puppy cost. Believe me, they AREN'T making any money on that. That is the ONLY way I would "ship" a puppy.

When you purchase a puppy, you are making a long-term (possibly 15+ year) investment. The up-front costs of purchase and a transport are a drop in the bucket compared to what you will spend over the life of the dog. ...And being penny wise but pound foolish up-front can cost both money and heart ache in the long run.

I do believe that Rockhurst Havanese is a reputable breeder.

Hi Lilyg, I sent the PM - I didn't mean for it to sound 'fishy'. I definitely dont want to ruin her rep. Beth is a good breeder - she has some gorgeous pups. She had a couple litters earlier this year. Here is a pix of some on them. Our baby boy is in there second one from the right.

Here is the thread of our trip home.
