Who is importing them? Most of the dogs from Hungary are coming in at auction and being sold to the puppy mills. I think an occasional breeder may import a dog (I have one from Germany and one from England) but only to expand our lines a little. I don't think there is much health testing going on in Hungary and the bulk of the dogs are going to backyard breeders, brokers and mills. The auctions are bringing them in by the cart load. My imports are AKC registered but it involves a little more paperwork. At AKC it is all about the Stud Book and many imports cannot be proven to be Havanese. Hence AKC won't register them. Russia does not recognise the Havanese but I have heard of Russian Havanese imports. So how would you know??????
