Please Note:

 Puppy
applications are processed by date of receipt but do not guarantee your
spot over someone else. We are doing our best to match puppies to
people.  If no puppies are
available at the time, please note that you will be placed in a pool of
applicants that are currently interested in a puppy. You will be contacted
if one becomes available. If after submitting your application you
change your mind, please notify me so that someone else who may be
interested can be considered. You allow me, the seller, to check your
references to make sure that my puppy is going to the best and most
loving home possible. My Havana Silks are part of the family and stay in
our home with us. I am not a kennel. That means we have a lot of fun
with these sweet silk babies and lots of love to go around. They are indoors
with us and part of the family. Our Isabella sleeps with
us at night on our bed or next to the bed (depending on her mood!). So
please understand our desire to find the best homes for these little
ones.

 

Show Quality
vs. Pet Quality

Some people
want “show quality” or “pet quality”. My goal is that any Havana Silk bred
by me are pet quality and show quality because I choose a sire
and dam according to the HSDAA Havana Silk Standard and breed for those
qualities that come closest to the standard. A Certified Havana Silk Dog
meets the AKC Havanese standard currently, but an AKC Havanese may not necessarily
meet the HSDAA Havana Silk Dog Standard. Of course not every
Havana Silk puppy is perfect. An exceptional dog can be found in
a litter that would do well in the conformation ring or for future
breeding. “Pet Quality” also conforms as closely to the standard as
possible. For the integrity of the breed, only the finest go on to
reproduce. While AKC does not recognize the Havana Silk Dog Breed yet,
all my dogs are dually registered AKC Havanese and HSDAA Certified
Havana Silk Dogs. Your puppy is therefore able to be dually registered with the AKC and the independent registry of the the HSDAA.
PLEASE NOTE: NOT ALL
HAVANESE CAN FIT INTO THE HAVANA SILK DOG STANDARD AND A HAVANESE MUST
BE THOROUGHLY EVALUATED AND BE ACCEPTED BY APPLICATION TO THE HSDAA IN
ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED A HAVANA SILK DOG. A PUPPY IS NOT A HAVANA SILK
PUPPY UNLESS BOTH PARENTS ARE CERTIFIED HAVANA SILKS WITH HSDAA. THERE
ARE EXCEPTIONS TO BEING BROUGHT IN UNDER THE HSDAA. PLEASE INQUIRE WITH
HSDAA IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR DOG FITS THE HSDAA STANDARD.

 

Litter
Evaluation

An evaluation
of the litter is done by a group of experienced breeders when the
puppies are 8 week-old for quality and health. Another special thing
about your puppy is that from the 3rd day of birth your puppy
receives “Early Neurological Stimulation” a program originally developed
by the military called the “Super Dog” Program. Carmelo Battaglia, Ph.D.
has written some very good information about stimulating and socializing
your puppy at an early age. Your puppy is a “High Achiever” because your
puppy will have participated in these exercises from Day 3 to Day 16 of
his or her life which benefits your puppy in:

  1. Improved
    cardio vascular performance (heart rate)
  2. Stronger
    heart beats
  3. Stronger
    adrenal glands
  4. More
    tolerance to stress and
  5. Greater
    resistance to disease

These puppies
are more active and exploratory than puppies that were not stimulated in
the research. See

www.breedingbetterdogs.com for more information.  Puppies will also
be socialized in our home with adults, children, and other pets. This is
the other critical part about developing a healthy puppy and is done
between weeks 4 and 16. Well socialized dogs make the best pets. We love
our Isabella and she is a bit spoiled. Havana Silks are the most rascally,
playful, intelligent, affectionate and gorgeous dogs I have ever had the
pleasure to own and experience. Don’t let the sweetness fool you… they
are mischievous and WONDERFUL! Life is great with a Havana Silk Dog! (Okay, I
am a bit biased!)

 

Conditions of
Ownership

I do not
participate in co-owning the dogs. Once you purchase your puppy s/he is
yours. However, puppies that are not going to be shown in
the conformation ring will be sold on a spay/neuter contract only and
you must show proof of spay or neutering in order to receive your
spay/neutering refund. AKC Registration is Limited Registration for the
puppies sold under a spay/neuter contract. This must be done before the
puppy reaches 6 months of age to receive the refund. Under a Limited
Registration a dog is eligible to compete in all AKC-licensed events
except breed competition at an AKC-licensed dog show. See AKC
Procedures for Registration Matters.
Your puppy can also be
independently registered as a Havana Silk Dog because both parents are
Certified Havana Silk Dogs. If your puppy is for pet only then you will be eligible for
Companionship registration. If you have purchased your Havana Silk for
showing and breeding you will be able to register your silk as a Certified Havana Silk. See
www.havanasilkdog.org for more information on registering your
Havana Silk.

 

Puppies will
NOT be shipped.

You must be willing to travel to come get your puppy. It is not worth
the fear a little puppy goes through in a crate on a cargo plane. If you
need to fly, they are better off with you nearby in an airline approved
carrier stowed under the seat in front of you!

 

A deposit of $200 (nonrefundable) is due
as a down payment and reservation of your puppy should your application
be accepted. The remaining balance is due before you pick up your puppy.
Your puppy is health guaranteed against the main defects (eyes, ears,
hips and patellas) of the Havanese breed and Havana Silks for the first year of your
puppy’s life. Your puppy’s parents were both thoroughly health-screened
for the diseases that the Havanese Breed is most susceptible to; they
have been screened for their eyes (CERF), ears (BAER), hips (HD), patellas and received a full blood panel check. Some breeders will do
even further health testing on the breed’s liver and heart. You should
purchase a puppy that has been bred from parents that meet at least the
first 4 criterion. All that to say, you are getting a sound, quality,
pup from healthy parents! You are responsible for seeing that your puppy
gets the best healthcare throughout his or her life by having him or her
thoroughly examined within the first 3 days of returning home as a
baseline and on a continual basis to compare back to. Should your puppy
show up with a major genetic defect that the sire and dame have been
screened against it is your responsibility to
contact the breeder as soon as possible to discuss your options. You
have the choice of returning your puppy for another one or returning
your puppy for a refund
(minus your deposit). I will not assume any veterinary costs that you
incur with your puppy nor will I be held responsible for any illnesses
that occur to your puppy based on environment and any neglect on your
part. As a dedicated Havana Silk
breeder I want nothing but the best for you and your new puppy. Once
your puppy goes home with you it is your turn to be a responsible owner.
Please note that should you decide at a later date that you are unable
to continue ownership responsibility for your Havana Silk Dog, I would appreciate you giving me the
first option to purchase back the dog, no questions asked. I will
have the option to purchase back your dog at the original purchase
price. It is important that no Havana Silk goes
unloved or to any home that will not meet his or her needs. You may have
figured out by now, AKC Havanese breeders and HSDAA Havana Silk Dog breeders are very particular about their dogs and only a
responsible breeder follows their puppies throughout their lifetime!
Havana Silk Dogs require a lot of attention, daily grooming with their beautiful
coat, and physical activity. If this seems like too much for you then a
Havana Silk Puppy is not for you.

 

All puppies
will go home with a veterinary health check, including being current on
all vaccinations and de-worming, have their micro-chipping and BAER,
CERF, a 3-generation pedigree on both the sire and
dam, an application for AKC registration (unless on a spay/neuter
contract then registration is limited), an HSDAA application, a Havanese
puppy book, copies of all health records and a small bag of puppy food that
your puppy has been weaned to. Did I mention your puppy will be loved in
our home until the day s/he is gathered into your loving arms?
