New to Havanese Forum

My family and I have been wanting a Havanese. I have been calling many breeders. The two that I have made appointments with are Harmony Havanese and Bon Bon Havanese. Has anyone heard anything about these breeders? Suppose to go see the puppies this weekend.
Any advice???

Bon-Bon Havanese (the one in CT?) looks like they are doing the right things, as does Harmony in NY. However, there is another Bon-Bon (not sure where that one is) and another Harmony (Seattle) that both do a LOT of internet advertising. That would make me wary.

Since NY and CT are close geographically, I'm guessing these are the two breeders you are talking with?

Sorry! I misread. I saw that she went to college in CT!

Just a warning to stay away from Blossom Havanese in Woodstock NY. I have several friends who have had big allergy problems with their puppies from Blossom.

Hmmm… that's weird! Do you know their bloodlines? So many Havanese are related to so many others. If there are some lines that are more allergy-producing, it would be good to know that!

I actually did call them and was not happy with our conversation. Both breeders that I mentioned told me they had the litter so they can keep one of the pups for themselves. I guess to show them. I'm assuming thats a good sign.
Is there a difference between male and female dogs?

Yes, it is VERY common for reputable breeders to keep 1 or even 2 to grow up, show and add to their breeding program!
I only have 1 hav, a girl, but dream of the day I can add a baby boy to our family!
I have heard over and over and OVER again that the girls love you, but the boys are IN love with you!

I would have agreed with the boys being in love with you and the girls more independent until I got Ruby. She is a lover and likes nothing more than having me hold/pet her.

I wish you luck with your little boy and if you're having a problem coming up with a name, we're great at the name game here.

<b>Just Milo and me, and . . . </b>Bailey makes three . . . until Ruby said, "hey, what about me?"
Geri, Milo, Bailey and HRH Princess Ruby Tuesday
