Unfortunately, Ashley, being "registered AKC" doesn't mean it's a healthy dog, just that the breeder had the litter registered. It also doesn't mean the dam and sire are healthy, or that THEIR dams and sires are healthy. They say "health certificate", but that just means that someone there will make up a paper and sign it.
What you want to see are links to the ofa.org site and actual proof that the dam and sire have passed their tests with success.
Since this woman isn't testing, she isn't spending money on those tests, so can likely afford to sell her pups cheap. Thing is, it's not worth the savings for the potential owner in my opinion.

Last week she had two more Havs on They were both between 2-3 years. It kinda looks like she is getting out of Dodge!! The male's name was Rocky (first picture) and the female Dolly (2nd). They were $50 and it stated that they were not trained due to the fact that they were outside dogs.... A havanese as an outside dog? IDK I just hate people like this! Thedogs all look gross. I have a save the world complex... Sorry guys!~! It just makes me soo sad.
Okay, now I see. Yeah, it looks like she is getting rid of her dogs.
You know, part of me wonders if maybe they lost their house or something? I am on a bengal board and so many breeders have lost their homes and had to sell all of their cats...the economy is affecting a lot of people.
Do you live close? Can you go see her?
I don't but I wish I did... she is in Mo. I just stumbled across the site for the first two & felt bad so I did a search & Hickory creek came up on petfinder pets. I tried to email, but have yet to get a response.
She is in puppy mill capital of the U.S- Missouri. I bet with the economy even they are hurting. But who sells a pregnant dog??? (Cavalier!) I feel so bad for these dogs but I just have that thought if you buy this one for $350 plus 275 for shipping, I imagine she is making money even when you think you are saving the dog.
