After retiring from very challenging and rewarding careers, we knew we needed to do something new that would provide a worthwhile service for society. We loved dogs, so we researched different AKC breeds and learned that the most popular breeds had been overbred in an attempt to meet the demand. However, this caused an increase in the health and behavior problems.
For example, some studies have shown that purebred dogs are more likely to suffer from genetic diseases than mixed-breed dogs.
The reason for this is that when direct family lines are bred together, it will emphasize both the good and the bad qualities. In other words, some of the puppies will be fantastic, and some will not be very good at all.
We knew that in order to produce the best pet, we would not breed dogs closely related.
Instead, we decided to become small hobby breeders. Our dogs live in the home with us as our pets. We only breed Havanese and only have a few dogs. We are not a puppy mill.
Therefore, we can ensure that all of our puppies are raised in a loving and healthy environment.
The puppies are born in our home first, so we can make sure all the needs of the litter, and their momma, are taken care of. Next, when they are older, they have a puppy safe area that is bigger for them to play and learn in.
In addition, we are committed to breeding healthy, happy puppies that will make wonderful companions for their new families. Finally, we hope you will contact us if you are interested in learning more about our puppies.

We decided instead of trying to produce the best show dog, we would try to produce the very best pet. After 15 adult Havanese over a 10 year period now, I can tell you that no matter how bad of a day you are having a Havanese will cheer you up. These dogs live to be with their fur-ever families, and are always extremely happy to see you, be with you and eager to please you like no other breed. Their dedication to their person, or family is like no other.
