New Here - No Havanese Yet!

Hello all! I decided to join your forum because I've been having a lot of trouble finding a reputable breeder in my area, and I saw that there were a few fellow Long Islander's here! I thought I'd pick their brains a little and see if I could find me a Havanese!

My family and I (husband & 3 kids) are hoping to add a beautiful little Hav to our family around August, and I was wondering if anyone in the NY metro area could recommend a good breeder.

PJewel has been very sweet and given me some great advice (turns out we're neighbors!), and I've been checking out Prairiwind--where she got Milo from. Thanks PJewel!

Anyway, any help and advice that anyone else can give would be much appreciated! I was researching 3 different breeds, and now that I've decided on a Hav, I'm SO excited! The more I see all of your beautiful babies, the more I can't wait until August!

Thank you!!

Welcome - I can't give you advice on a breeder, but just make sure you get your Havanese from someone who health tests. These are adorable little devils and your family will fall head over heels too.

Good luck in your search.

I'm so happy you're on here. Did you get a chance to check out that other breeder in Pennsylvania? I think she might be a viable alternative for you as well. I'm sure you'll get lots of other advice and pm's here from some of the most helpful people in cyberspace.

I'm glad you're excited about your puppy in waiting. I'm excited for you too.

Hi Geri!

Thank you for welcoming me, and thanks to everyone else as well!

I don't think you gave me the name of a breeder in PA. Could you resend it? Thank you!

I can't wait to have an avatar!!

I'll pm you again with that info. I might have emailed it to you the first time.

As for the avatar, I can bring Milo over for you to puppy sit and you can use him as a place card for the real thing.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the upcoming furbaby. Oh searching for puppies is fun! I would say get to an east coast play date if you can.... you might have to get one before August though!

Welcome,

You will love, love, love, your Havanese when you find your special pup.

I have had dogs most of my adult life, but when I got my first Havanese, I was totally smitten with the breed and got a second one 2 years later.

The Havanese were the first dogs to be allowed on our furniture and also to sleep in our bed.
Have fun searching and send us pictures when you find your Hav.
