yesterday by posting on this forum earlier. We had a puppy inquiry from someone looking for a small Havanese. I copied and pasted the link to Pennylite's posting here about Darby. Pam wrote a long reply and included the link. It turns out the person had been talking to the same breeder that Darby came from and was determined to get a tiny Havanese.

She contacted the breeder after getting Pam's email and asked all sorts of questions. Long story short, she found out the truth and wrote Pam back a long thank you. It looks like she might end up getting a puppy from us later but at least she knows what to look out for now.

So to Pennylite, Thanks for your bravery. You did indeed do some good by posting here.

Great news!!! If only unethical breeders like that could be permanently put out of business....sigh. But, that's a start. :)

Huge thanks to Pennylite, Tom and Pam, and to Melissa for starting up the forum in the first place. I'm certain this isn't the only case of heading off a disaster by sharing information that has come about because of this forum, but one that is black and white. I only wish more could be done to spread the word about unethical breeders who blatently lie and do things to endanger the health of the puppies.

Bravo to everyone for uncovering this person. What I am worried about are the poor puppies that she is selling. Can't we do something to put her out of business? :mad: The dogs and puppies are the ones really being hurt! :(

Irnfit - unfortunately, there are many more breeders like the one Pennylite got her puppy from. So many breeders that I contacted didn't show or test their dogs, but they did want a lot for them.....sigh.

Judy, I felt the same way when I saw the website.

Tom, I agree - Bravo to Pennylite for her courage with her sweet little Darby and for not being afraid to post about the troubles he was having. It has opened up more eyes than we may ever know.

The more good, reputable breeders get the message out that there is a reason they breed their Havs the way they do, then more people will understand and learn to appreciate what a well-bred, healthy, emotionally balanced and joyous Havanese really is. They are not tea cup size, nor are they aggressive and sickly and they aren't a "new designer" breed for the sole purpose of being an accessory to carry around! :rolleyes:

It's all about research, research and more research!!

That's great Tom! I'm so glad you were able to stop someone from buying from that breeder.

I'm hoping Pennylite will update us on Darby.
