Like Amanda,I've heard of people de-barking shelties.In fact,there is a sheltie breeder local here that has all her shelties de-barked.Of course she lives in town,and to me that's kinda stupid......why would you breed med.size "barky"dogs and live in town?Wouldn't common sense have you live in the country or something,so they can run and bark etc.?Needless to say,we went to the eastern part of the state to get Vinnie.I also wouldn't want to get a dog de-barked myself,but I have heard of a few legimate reasons people have(I guess).I can not imagine a havanese though.........
