It worries me a bit that there is no mention of health testing on the web site. Please make sure that you read our section on choosing a reputable breeder, and make sure you ask all the questions. It is VERY important that the parents (and preferably several generations back) have been fully health tested, including hip, elbows, patellas, eyes (CERF), ears (BAER) and cardiac. Many breeders also go one step farther and run liver and thyroid panels on their breeding stock.
All Havanese puppies should also be BAER tested for unilateral deafness before going to their forever homes.
This is not to say they DON'T test… I don't know this breeder at all. But it doesn't say anything about testing on their web site, so check carefully.
