Newbie with a breeder question!

Hi! I'm a newbie here that is planning to get a Havanese puppy in the near future. I have been in contact with a breeder and am wondering if any of you know anything about them - Noah's Little Ark is the name. The breeder has been very nice and has answered my questions, but I contacted him before I found this forum (that is filled with all kinds of wonderful info!).

Thanks so much!!!

I could be thoroughly wrong but that site and the requirements for downpayment to be on a list seems fishy. I'm sure the breeders that are on this forum will respond as soon as they see this thread

Welcome!! that particular breeder has come up several times on the forum since I have been here.... have you BEEN to their house? Met the dogs and the people? Be careful ... proceed with caution and please educate yourself!

Here's a link to a previous thread on here about that particular breeder.

THANK YOU so much for responding!! I will definitely NOT get a puppy from this breeder! This is my first time getting a puppy (I've always had a cat), so it's a little overwhelming trying to find a breeder I can trust.

Hope to be back with pics of a new puppy soon!!

I know it's exciting... I've been there too! But make sure you take all the time you need to find the RIGHT breeder with the RIGHT puppy!!!

Yes, please do be careful which breeder you choose. The forum is so fabulous and can help you with what to look for in a good breeder. Initially I had given two deposits to two other breeders that ultimately weren't right for me. It took almost a year for me to find the right breeder. I remember reading on the forum "don't limit your search by how close by the breeder is" That was the best advice. At first I felt resistant because I was doing just that. In the end, it turns out I drove over 800 miles to get Charley and I'm soooooo glad I did. My Charley is the absolute perfect dog for me and ultimately that is what matters.

Ditto! I think we drove about 450 miles... 10 hrs each way to meet/get our sweet hav Tillie!

Woo hoo! I think I have found a good breeder - Windy Hill Havanese. She does all of the health testing and although she does have two sets of puppies available, she will not be breeding the moms again until next summer. She said she does have another mom who she may breed in the winter, but she isn't sure. That's a good sign, right? That she isn't breeding her dogs over and over again just to sell puppies?

She has some beautiful chocolate puppies and I am going to see them on Monday. I'm smitten with one named Violet, so have my fingers crossed that she will be the right puppy for me. No doubt I will be back posting LOTS more questions and asking for LOTS more advice if she is my perfect puppy and I get to bring her home in a few weeks!!

Thank you again for all your help and advice so far!

Susan
