New here...

Hi, my name is Kim. I have been lurking for a while, but have decided to dive on in. This is such a wonderful forum and I am learning a lot.
My family has just fallen in love with the havanese breed and we are looking for a breeder now.
We live in SW Ohio, my kids are almost 5 and 9 and can't wait.
Of course finding a good breeder is a lot more complicated than I thought so we are all trying to be patient and do things right. One of my big frustrations is incomplete health testing Cerf and hips, but not the rest; one parent fully tested the other not....
I am open to any wisdom you all have to share, but mostly just wanted to say hi.
Kim

Welcome Kim - I am sure you will learn lots here!! Yes I think it is very hard to find a breeder that does what you want, but like you said, doing it the right way and being patient will pay off in the end. Hope to hear some puppy new soon!!

Welcome to the board!

I started lurking late April and by late June had a new Havanese so be warned! LOL.

Welcome, Kim
It can be frustrating when you are looking for a breeder. You might have to go out of state, or wait for the right puppy. But be warned...when you get your first pup, put in the order for the second one. The people on the forum all suffer from MHS - multiple havanese syndrome.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

Trish- I have read a lot of your posts. With you in In and me in Oh I think we have traveled some of the same ground. I believe I saw the 3 1/2 lb 6 mos old you talked about.

Michele-I am almost tempted now to get too-lol. I am prepared to travel if need be to get the right dog for us.

Take your time, do your homework and before you know it you will have a little furball take over your life. Good luck on your search.

Welcome to the group Kim. For the next month, I am in Columbus! There are lots of bad breeders in Ohio- backyard and puppy mills, Amish so good for you doing your research!
