NYC area breeders?

Hi everyone,

Finally delurking here. We are looking to add a Havanese puppy to our family and I have done TONS of reading and research on this special breed. What a wonderful dog! The problem is that finding a reputable breeder is overwhelming as there are so many on the internet. How does one know which is good??? Can you tell me where you got your dog or do you have any breeders that you might recommend that are within a few hours drive from NYC? Any information will be greatly appreciated.

I know there is someone in Nyack who is supposed to be really good. I got my dog from a breeder in Cairo, but that is closer to Albany and might be too far for you. Where are you?

We are in NYC. Albany would be about a 3hr drive so that's definitely doable. How was your buying experience?

Contact LaurieF for the name of her breeder in PA. That's probably about the same drive distance as Albany. You can also contact the Greater NY Havanese Club. There are quite a few very good breeders associated with the NY club. Good luck - your search will be worth every minute.
