Thanks for tuning into our playpen.
On our website, under the forms section, we do offer an on-line application for those wishing to be on our waiting/contact/adoption list. Just by filling out an application, does not obligate you to purchase one of our puppies, nor does it obligate us to sell you one. We reserve the right to refuse a sale for any reason, even after a deposit has been submitted. We want the best possible match-up for each puppy, because they are an extension of our family, needing to feel loved and adored for their entire lifetime. If you are just looking for a puppy to purchase and raise on your own, our kennel is not for you. I still keep in touch with all of our past puppies. Our website is www.http://fausthousehavanese.com. or http://fausthousehavanese.org. If we can be of further assistance or answer any questions, please don't hesitate to e-mail or call us. We do NOT ship puppies. By law, a puppy can not be sold/purchased "Sight Unseen." A personal pick up is required that includes a complementary exit review visit with our vet and a grooming session. And by all means, please do not buy a puppy from a pet store or flea market. See my website for reasons of why not...... And if you are expecting a ready made puppy in a box, think again. A dog will be a life-time commitment and a responsibility. Remember, every breeder is not the same, do your research, get references and think about these items below.
I am an active club member of the national recognized parent club, The Havanese Club of America. I am a board member of the Central Carolina Havanese Club. I actively show my dogs in AKC conformation to help verify that my breeding program is in accordance to the AKC havanese standard. I train my dogs in rally and obedience (not that they want to listen sometimes), but they have the skills and training. I ONLY have havanese in my household. There is no questions whether it is a purebred dog or not. I also go above and beyond testing my adult dogs for health. All the tests performed are registered at the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of Animals) so others may see the results. I also do background DNA testing to see what my breeding dogs carry such as short hair recessive genes, chocolate, red, cream, black furnishings, silky coats, silver furnishings, and kidney disease. All of these things cost money to do them which your every day backyard breeders, or puppy mill dogs are not going to invest in their dogs.
If a breeder does not do the things I described above, then why would you want to buy from them? The dogs are cheaper most people say. Well, just remember, you get what you pay for. Don't be fooled by imitation breeders. Many backyard breeders are out for the quick buck. They will say they will warrant you the same warranty as breeders such as me, without having to do all the above work. It's not about the warranty, it's about the quality of dogs we are producing and the integrity of the breed lines. There is a very helpful table that helps you decide what kind of breeder you are dealing with in regards to backyard breeder, reputable hobby breeder, or a puppymill breeder. It's found at www.centralcarolinahavaneseclub.com. Check it out before you buy. If I don't have a puppy available for you, chances are, I will know a reputable breeder to refer you to. Thank you again for your time and interest.
Thanks again for your interest in our pups. Enjoy your stop.
