Havanese breeder in Oregon?

Hello everyone,

My last experience with a local breeder was a bit of a disappointment, mainly because the puppy I saw on the breeder's website was not the one I was shown, and wasn't any longer available ... It was an unfortunate mix-up ...

I'm renewing my search with renewed hope ... If you know a reputable breeder in the Portland, Oregon area, or one that is a reasonable drive from there, please let me know ... If you don't want to provide details here, please PM me ...

Thank you!

ps: It is my impression that puppies should not be crated and shipped; if that is not true, then I could broaden my search area a little, but again, not too far from northern Oregon ...

Yes, having your puppy shipped is not recommended. Is driving an option for you outside of Portland? There are a number of good breeders in Washington, Oregon, and Northern California if you're open to driving more than an hour from home.

I don't mind a longer drive, I am more concerned that the puppy will be in a crate for more than a couple of hours ... It's likely I'll be traveling alone and there won't be anyone to comfort her for long stretches, although with good luck she'll sleep the entire way!

When I got Kodi, he was in a (soft sided)crate for 2 hours from the breeder to the airport, then through the airports and the flight, then for another hour + car ride from the airport to home. He did fine. We stopped shortly before the airport to let him potty, and put him down on a big pee pad in the second airport to give him the chance to potty again. But mostly he just slept.

Thanks, krandall, it's encouraging to hear about different ways to bring a puppy home ... A soft-sided crate also sounds like a good idea ...

There is a Havanese club in the PNW. Find their website, and contact some of those breeders.

We flew from Ottawa Canada to San Francisco with Scout. He made the trip in a soft sided Sherpa carrier. It was an extra long trip because my husband said he knew how to get to the airport We missed our nonstop flight to SF and had to wait two hours for a flight to New Jersey with another two hour lay over before our SF flight. It was an extremely long day for a little puppy. I brought along a stainless dish so he could have water. He did just great tucked under the seat and slept pretty much the whole day. This a picture of our little guy waiting for a flight.

What a little beauty ... I'm beginning to understand that if I travel far to pick up a puppy, she'll be rested and I'll be exhausted
