$100 off a Havanese

What is happening to our wonderful Havs? I got a Christmas Card from Jaspers breeder with a plastic credit card type gift certificate that said "$100 toward your next puppy" I am not sure why-- but boy this gave me the willies.

Maybe the proliferation of breeders has cut into your breeder's business and they're looking to their database of previous buyers for future purchases. At least she'd know it would go to a good home.

Maybe she heard about all the MHS on the forum and is testing you.
Maybe you could pass it on to someone who is thinking of getting a puppy.

Hmm, weird to put a sweet Hav on the same level with a half off sale at JC Penney's. I'll bet the breeder just thought it would be a cute gimmick. I hope that's all it is.

Hmmm, I can see why it gave you an off feeling, Missy.
Hopefully Susan is right and she just thought it was a cute gimmick.

When I saw the name of this thread, I was wondering what was up!

Hey! I am looking for a puppy! If this is a legit breeded and you got your Jasper from her, I would be more then happy to investigate as long as she is not too far from me! I have a bad case of MHS! And I have gotten nowhere at this point looking for one and one that matches our Parker!

Oh - you see I see it in a totally different way---

Maybe your breeder is so happy that her pups are going to such great homes that they want future litters to maybe be with siblings and in great homes,.

If it is from your own breeder, then they are just being kind.

Just my 2 cents. - I am the optomist!!

I'll pm you Lynn with the specifics. But I will say I believe she is a legit breeder, and Jassy is healthy! Perhaps not socialized as well as could be but other than that he is a beautiful healthy hav. But she did not give papers and there were some other red flags. But I don't think she runs puppy mill- I just think she is more of a business women than someone infatuated with the breed

I agree! And I am a good home to go to! Just ask Parker! What a life he has. In my next life I want to come back as him!
