"Championship lines" means nothing, unless the parent (and preferably THEIR parents) have been shown to their championship. Even puppy mills can often claim "championship lines".

It's hard to tell much of anything from their web site. They say that they CERF their adults yearly, which is good, but this only scratches the surface on the testing that should be done on breeding stock before they are used to produce puppies. Read some of the threads on the forum on choosing a good breeder and make sure you have a good list of questions to ask this breeder before making a decision. They could be good or they could NOT be. There's just not enough info on their website to know.

Hi and the forum, Please check out the thread at the top of the welcome page on how to find a reputable breeder if you want a havanese with a healthier bloodline/ genetics.

NY has a really large meetup group, I would join it if I lived in NY

Thanks for your help. I have been looking at some of the links posted here on finding a good breeder. I can tell that there is a lot of good advice here. I sure will take my time to investigate!

We got our dog from Sue Lisi. It took forever to get any papers that were promised. Her web site says she tests her dogs but was unable to produce the paperwork. His patellas are weak which is one of the things she says she tests for. His front legs are not straight the way aHavanese should be. She does not do Cerf testing. She over breeds her dogs. There are always new puppies on her site. There is a breeder in Lafayette, NY named Linda Brown. She does not have puppies all the time so she does not over breed. I would also call Ruthellen Viall. She has champions. I was also impressed with Hairpups in Binghamton. Good luck.

Really

It is amazing how one person can make a comment and so be it to others that have read. I think Sue Lisi produces some of the best quality havanese in NY. Think again before reading a post and making it law....

I am neutral here and do NOT want to start any arguing, BUT I would ask that you would please re word your post as it really doesn't make any sense...

I got my pup from Hairpups in Binghamton and am very happy with the testing and ethics of the breeder. Oh, and my pup is fantstic.

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say, but if it's what I think, I would give Spindocker's personal experience a lot of weight when choosing a breeder.
