Frequently Asked Questions:

If I am interested in a puppy, what are the next steps?
  • After letting me know your interest in one of our puppies, I will send you a copy of our contract to review, or you can review it here. After the contract is reviewed and questions are answered, you can place a deposit on the puppy of interest. Our deposits are non refundable and will go towards the purchase price of the puppy. We only accept deposits on puppies that are already born. 
  • After the deposit is placed, I will give you weekly updates on the puppy. We weigh our puppies at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks for their worming so a weight will be included in those updates. 
  • At 4 weeks you are welcome to come and visit your puppy. Please review the visitation policy before visiting. 

 

Do you ship your puppies?

  • We will not ship our puppies. If you are unable to pick up your puppy at our home, we will deliver to you for a fee.

 

Are you able to tell me the approximate size and weight your puppies will be as adults?

  • Our stud, Kona is 8-9 pounds. Dixie is 10 pounds and Isabella is 13 pounds, so depending on which female is the mother our puppy weights will vary from 8-13 pounds. However, weight and color of your puppy as an adult is not guaranteed. 

 

Will the chocolate fade?

  • Havanese is known is for its color changes. Chances are the color will fade at least some. We have had puppies that stayed dark and others that got light. We do not guarantee the adult color of the puppies. The chocolate sables always tend to get the lightest.

Would my puppy have full or limited registration?

If you are inquiring about full registration, please let me know as this is discussed on a case to case basis.
