Well, just from their websites I do see some definite red flags in my honest opinion. Hickory Hill Farm has outside "environmentally controlled" out buildings for their Havs?! Ummm, that is frightening! In my opinion no dog should be kept in a barn, but especially not a havanese.
Also, besides the suspension Kathy noted Beloved Havanese has a TON of dogs for sale...and she's going out of business at the end of the year because of health reasons? If you're going to get your dog from a breeder, I would want the breeder to be able to be there for support throughout my hav's life. I personally would not even consider one of her dogs.
I believe KrisE (member name) is soon getting a pup from Jerry of Havanique, so you could chat with her.
It does seem like KASE is legit too, but the besides Havanique and KASE I wouldn't even consider visiting the rest, and that's just from what I saw on their websites. Yikes!
I just want to add that I am not familiar with any of these breeders, just taking their sites at face value, but you really want to make sure they are completely health testing their dogs, have them listed on the offa.org site, and will really support you as a breeder.
