Havanese Breeder: Friend Or Fraud?

Dec 31, 2007
With Havanese puppies becoming so popular over the last forty years, there has been a rash of dishonest breeders popping up in an effort to make a profit on the ever increasing demand for these playful little pups. These dishonest breeders, otherwise known as puppy brokers, have little regard for the condition of the lives of their dogs. Instead they are only interested in how many pups they can churn out in a single breeding season.

While spotting an honest Havanese breeder may be a chore, it really isn't all that difficult if you know what to look for. These puppy brokers are usually the ones who supply Havanese puppies to pet stores across the country. One of the first steps to avoiding a dishonest Havanese breeder, is to be sure that you do your due diligence and research any breeder you are considering buying a puppy from. Part of doing this research, is avoiding buying a pup from a pet store, and instead only purchasing from an honest breeder.

The best way to know whether you are dealing with an honest Havanese dealer is to thoroughly research any and all documentation you are given both at the time of the sale, and prior to the final delivery. This includes checking the online databases to ensure that your dog is actually registered where the breeder says they are. Unfortunately, registration papers are relatively simple to forge, and many would-be Havanese owners are duped every day. Fortunately for them, respected registration organizations have online databases available where you can research the registration of your pup's parents, to make certain that you are getting your dog from an honest breeder.

Also, it is not uncommon for a dishonest Havanese breeder to forge medical documentation. Since there are a great many medical tests that need to be done on a Havanese pup when they are born to ensure they do not carry any of the common genetic health concerns that plague so many pups, it is important that you make a point to call the veterinarian (and research them, as well) listed on the paperwork to make certain that your pup has actually had the testing done.
There are many other ways to tell whether or not the Havanese breeder you are considering is an honest one. The most important of which is whether or not you will be allowed to view the conditions in which the pup is to be born. A dishonest Havanese breeder will most likely come up with several different excuses as to why you cannot see their kennels. If this is the case, then you are most likely dealing with a puppy broker, and should find another Havanese breeder immediately.

Often, you will need to wait several months, or even a couple of years, to get the perfect Havanese pup. It is important to remember that these dogs are well worth the wait it may take to ensure that your pup is coming from an honest Havanese breeder. Havanese puppies are prone to certain genetic disorders, and fake breeders do not take the necessary steps to ensure healthy pups that will be able to enjoy a long and healthy life with their new owners.
