If you have not already done so, please visit the Havanese Club of America’s website, www.Havanese.org, which contains a lot of wonderful information about this breed especially if you have never been owned by a Havanese before. While they are a wonderful and loving companion, they are NOT a breed for every family.

Thank you for your time in completing this form and for your interest in obtaining a puppy from me.
