From Alice’s Havanese Owner to Havanese Breeder

Alice is on 50 mg of Atopica daily, omega 3&6 capsules, Humilac spray daily, and Paula Martel will be doing Alice’s very complicated bath weekly. This is costing my family thousands of dollars. As her Breeder, Would you be willing to refund us our money what we paid  for Alice, due to the SA Disease?

…..I do not guarantee life-long health, as some breeders may do. Instead, my breeding program focuses on trying to deter faults - both genetic and physical.  By scrutinizing pedigrees and doing health tests on our breeding dogs, it helps me to make sound decisions on who I will breed.  Mother Nature takes care of the rest. When dealing with genetics, there is never guarantees.

"We should be treating dogs like the invaluable resource they are. We need to preserve not just the animals but also their gene pools, including those of land races, ancestral breeds, and village dogs that are the living reservoirs of canine genetic diversity. We need to document the breeds of the world and their current population sizes and genetic status, and we need to create the kinds of monitoring and development programs already in place for other domestic breeds of importance. We need to train breeders in the methods of sustainable breeding and provide them with the expertise and tools they need to be "preservation breeders". We will need scientific expertise, computer and database technology, the cooperation of thousands of breeders around the world, and funding."
