Mt. Breeze and Avonlea Havanese

I am new to this forum. Does anyone have any experiences (good or bad) with Mt. Breeze or Avonlea Havanese? From the looks of it both do not mention anything about specific health tests done on their breeding stock. Mt Breeze has puppies available right now and Avonlea will have puppies soon. I am planning to get a havanese soon so both will be fine. My last dog was from a rescue so I didn't really had to ask about tests. A friend of a co-worker of mine got her havanese frm Avonlea and she is happy with the breeder, but I thought all reputable breeders would mention on their website the various tests done on their dogs. Any advice or comments will be great.

Thanks...

Make sure you see those health testing certificates or check out the OFA/CERF info on the OFA website!

I would also agree- health testing is a must, this is going to be your best friend for hopefully the next 15 years!

I'd contact them directly and ask what testing they do on their dogs. Also, be sure to get the full registered names of the parents to be able to check the results at offa.org

Well Avonlea is my most favorite place in the world!!!! she is my breeder and is where I got all three of mine and have helped orchestrate 4 other placements from there. If you have questions regarding the testing, please email Phyllis, she will tell you all that you need to know!! I promise!
Good Luck - and if you decide on on Avonlea pup, tell her Laurie sent ya!!

We were going to get a puppy from Avonlea, but the timing wasn't right for this litter. But we had intended to use Phyllis/Avonlea (per Laurie's recommendation). I've emailed with Phyllis and she is very sweet. (when in doubt: heed Laurie's advice)

I've emailed Mt Breeze before and also have seen Mt Breeze dogs at dog shows in Harrisburg. They are gorgeous!! And I believe Sandra Moyer does do all the recommended Health Testing. Just email her, she'll answer all your questions.

Laurie, do you know if Phyllis tests and shows her dogs? You must be really happy with her to get three from her. Did you get all three at the same time?!?!?! Must be soooo much fun at your house.

jillnors2, did you end up getting your hav from Mt. Breeze?

Thanks for everyone's input. I'm new to this and really appreciate all your help.
