Hi Alyss, welcome to the forum. When do you bring your puppy home?

Thank you for the warm welcome! I am starting my search right now. I had been only searching rescues but finding it pretty difficult to find a Havanese as they continue to get scooped up pretty quick. I am hoping to ask the community about ethical breeders and the best way to responsibly go about finding and bringing home my future fur baby!

You are right about rescues, our 11 year old Havanese was a rescue from HRI-many breeders have this organization specifically noted on websites. Thatís where we got Cotton. I have been looking at them for over 2 years but thereís never been more than 4 at any given time and frequently less. We got our 3rd Havanese from a breeder last March and she is beyond fabulous and best friends with Cotton. Do you live in the US or Canada? I was extremely particular, more than most, in choosing a breeder. We had a negative experience when we got our 15 year old and I admit I was hyper vigilant, partly perpetuated by mommy guilt.
There are many knowledgeable people here so it can be helpful to get different perspectives. There was a thread recently that concluded most Havanese breeders are charging around $2500 with some geographic variations. What worked for me was making a list, communicating with breeders and most importantly, following my gut.
Youíre so smart to begin researching now, you can also get good feedback using the search bar. Your future baby is going to be one lucky puppy❣️

Welcome to a great forum. You will find a variety of opinions and suggestions which is a good thing. Thanks to this forum I'll be bringing home my little sweetie next weekend. It has been almost a year since I started my research but I am so excited! I understand your journey.

I live in Florida and just brought my first Havanese puppy home 3 weeks ago. It took many months of research to find a good breeder and I couldnít be happier. Where do you live?

Welcome!

I was trying to find the article within this HF about how to choose a breeder and fell down this rabbit hole. One interesting suggestion I saw was this: "NEVER treat your pup for peeing outside, or they focus on the treat, and do not empty bladder and come back in the house to pee." I don't recall hearing that before. I feel like I've read a lot of advice TO give a puppy a treat after they potty outside. What do the rest of you think? Here's a good article about how to choose a breeder. Can someone please remind me how to find the "how to choose a good breeder" article in this forum?

Here's some other good reading for you.

Please stay in touch!
