Please, if you are thinking about buying a Havanese puppy, do your research! Make sure you know if the breeder you are looking at has produced offspring with genetic diseases...not just one puppy ...but many, many puppies with a wide range of genetic diseases!
There are good breeders out there. Take your time and find a breeder who is honest with you and who takes responsibility for every puppy produced in his or her kennel. You, your family and your new puppy's quality of life depends upon the choices that you make when deciding which breeder to buy from.
