Question Searching for a great breeder

Hi...I am new to the forum. I live in NYC (Staten Island) and I have been searching the internet for breeders.

Two breeders that I've spoken to are DeVita Havanese in CT. and El Morro in Tampa, FL. (My brother lives in Tampa). Also, I have contacted Amoritas Havanese in FL and T-Wags in FL. by email. Has anyone had experience with any of these breeders? These breeders do all of the recommended health testing, to my knowledge. Does anyone know of any other breeders in the NY/NJ areas? I would love to get a puppy sometime in early 2009.


Two fellow members have sent me some suggestions already. Thanks for all your help!!!

Hi Gayle, welcome! Have you looked at the HCA website yet? You should find some local breeders there that are reg'd with AKC, I think. You can also check out www.offa.org to see if the breeders you mentioned have dogs with CHIC numbers, BAER testing, CERF and such.

Good luck!

Welcome Gayle has anyone mentioned Mary Cane from Moorea Havanese? She is a wonderful breeder who is also involved in Rescue. She is in MA on the NY boarder. Good luck in your search.

Hi Gayle,
I tried to PM you, but can't tell if it went through. I also love Mary Cane's dogs. She breeds the most beautiful havanese. She is very involved with HCA and does all the health testing. She will stand behind her pups for life and will be there for you anytime for help. She truly cares about ALL her dogs.
