What did you pay?

This is really a two question post.

First how much did you end up paying for your Hav? Seems like most puppies sale for one to two grand, depending on the breeder and gender. How much can you expect to pay for an adult Hav?

Also, anyone know of a good breeder in Tennessee? Since I can't get a Hav for probably a long time, all I can do is ask questions and do research. Thanks for any answers.

I think you can expect to pay anywhere between $1500-2500 for the puppy, but you should also consider all of the start up costs as well.

I got a deal! I was looking for a new pup and picked one out the breeder had that was just what I wanted - a black/white girl. She was ready for pickup at Christmas and her name was Noel - PERFECT! I was meeting the breeder at a central location and they showed up with some older dogs since she had decided she might not give up Noel

I ended up coming home with TWO white, male dogs that were about 18 months old! I think she knew from speaking with me on the phone I could not turn them down, even though we had not discussed older dogs. I got both for $400! We love them very much and they have two totally different personalities, and I feel as though I "rescued" these dogs

I agree with Kim on both fronts.

I see you live in Georgia, and I am on the GA line in TN. Do you mind sharing with me who that breeder is? That deal sounds too good to be true, I hope I luck up and find something like that.

Be aware that someone selling puppies for low prices isn't doing health testing and showing that help to ensure the health and following the standard for Havanese (both health and temperament wise) that a good breeder does. Like my daddy taught me, if something seems "too good to be true," it is. You might get lucky. You might not.

As my breeder said to me once, it isn't always the puppy or dog that you get that is the problem, it is where they come from. I wouldn't buy a dog if I couldn't see how the parents are treated and kept. I couldn't support someone who didn't treat my dog's parents the way my dogs are treated. With that all being said, two of my havs are rescues and one came from a wonderful breeder. He was $2000 and worth every dime. His breeder is wonderful. She shows her dogs, guarantees my dog, insists upon taking him back if there is ever any problem, fully health tests her dogs, and her dogs are first and foremost her pets. She has been there for me since the day I called her. She is still the first person I turn to regarding a problem with any of my dogs (whether they are my rescues or from her). This is the kind of person I feel good giving my money to and would refer to others!

I paid $1200. I have seen other breeders around here charge anywhere from $1100 (did not have a good feeling about that one), $1400, $1600 and 2000 being the highest I have seen. I have seen older dogs for a little less.

It sounds like you probably did more or less rescue them. Sounds like a bait and switch scam to me!
