They are a puppy mill broker. PLEASE find a reputable BREEDER. There are "sticky" posts on the forum that explain how to find a good breeder.

I would keep looking. I only spent about 5 seconds on the site and 2 things jumped out at me: extraordinarily low cost and the fact they are prominently listing a mixed-breed dog as a relative.

If it looks like a catalog, and had a drop down button to search all sorts of breeds, I say keep looking. I read the stickies on this site about breeders and they were very helpful!

This is so pitiful! Looks like they just throw a bunch of breeds together and sale whatever puppies result. So sad. I bet they live in horrible conditions with this many available.

Run don't walk away from this site!!!! They are nothing but puppy brokers.
Where are you located, we'd be more than happy to help you with your puppy search.
The first place you might want to look is the havanese club of america website for the information about the breed and what a reputable breeder is. Here's the link: http://havanese.org/

By the way, welcome to the forum.

There are good breeders within your area. The problem is whether they have puppies available right now. Good breeders often don't have too many litters per year, and most of the best have waiting lists. If you can wait, by all means find a local breeder and wait for the right pup.

Many of us have found, however, that to get the pup we want at the time we want, we need to travel. I live in MA and flew to NC for Kodi... and don't regret it for a moment!!! So don't rule out breeder out of your geographic area.

Just don't fall into the trap of purchasing a lesser quality pup from a back yard (or worse puppy mill) breeder just because they care close and you can get a pup quickly and/or less expensively that way. You can end up paying dearly in the long run for this sort of decision.
