Hattie and Zena were our first pure chocolate Havanese who retired in 2017. They both have championship bloodlines and solid pedigrees. They produced many lovely pet and show quality pups before their retirement as 4 year olds and have gone on to enjoy their lives with new families. Hattie lives in York ME with our family friends and Zena lives happily in MD with Cathy’s sister Pat.
In 2016 we added CoCo to the family. She is a white chocolate sable. Her father and grandparents are champions. CoCo is now a white beauty queen like her mother. All of her sable coloration has faded (as sables usually do) and her coat is 99% white with a slight wave. CoCo has all the sweet Havanese qualities. She is about 12 pounds, runs like the wind and loves the game of tag.
In 2017 we added Sadie (center in this photo). Sadie is a red chocolate sable who we found in TX after much searching and pedigree reviews. Her father is a Champion red chocolate, her mother a champaign color. We’re hoping this year (2019), when mated with Kaiser, that we will end up with a few red chocolates of our own.
Buster, our sire, is a spectacular physical specimen of a Havanese. We have not had him professionally evaluated, (simply because we just aren’t really that interested in doing so), but we’ve been told by other breeders that he very well could be a show quality Havanese dog. He sure looks it. He is just a plain beautiful dog with perfect conformation. He is on the robust end of the scale for this breed at 17 pounds and is just the sweetest fun loving guy around.
In 2018 we imported Kaiser (our new sire, wh0 will replace Buster when he retires) from a well respected breeder in the Czech Republic. Kaiser is ‘Mr. Congeniality’ in our pack. He is very sweet and handsome, not a chocolate (has the black pigmentation) but carries the chocolate gene and could very well produce chocolates in litters he sires. His first litter with Sadie is due March 28, 2019. His luxurious coat is tri color, red, brown, with tan markings. He is also a robust 17 pounds. We are looking forward to some red coat colorations in future litters he sires.
Mia came to us from Hungry in 2017. She is a pure dark chocolate with white markings on her chest and toes. She is a loving sweetheart who can out run CoCo and all the others. She, like CoCo is also 12 pounds. Mia had an extraordinary 11 puppy litter with Buster in September 2018. Every color and every one healthy. What a champion Mama she is. The video of that litter is on our YouTube channel. Z’s Havanese.
Also in 2018 we welcomed Piper into the pack from Canada. Piper Is a beautiful pure dark chocolate as well. Her markings are uniquely her own. She has a dark chocolate coat with tan/sable ‘socks’ and the cutest white eyebrows. She is about 13 pounds already. Piper is athletic and loves to fetch. She is sweet and calm and can melt you with her eyes.
