Havanese Angel League Organization (HALO) has a lot of Havanese right now. They rescued a huge number from two puppy mills that closed down -- one in Ok. and one in OH. Many of the dogs were pregnant (and those puppies were born in FREEDOM in foster homes). Names that begin with P are from Ok. and the ones with Q (I think, or maybe it was O) are from Ohio. The P dogs are not nearly as shy as typical puppy mill rescues (I have two from HALO), most of the dogs are on the smaller side (e.g. 9# ish) and a REALLY cute -- they have a different look to them.
A few have been posted on Petfinder.com, but many have been adopted through word of mouth with the HALO network following on HALO Family & Friends on Facebook. The moms are not available till their puppies have gone to their furever homes. Since I am a HALO alum and foster failure I am part of the group and have really enjoyed following the dogs and it sure seems it has been an outstanding tool to help get the dogs adopted, but I think there are still a number that need to find homes.
You can go to Petfinder.com and enter Havanese (on the left) and your zip code and get a list in geographic proximity to your location. Generally, there are about 160 Havanese or Havanese mixes at any time on Petfinder.
