While it is preferable to find a breeder within driving distance from your home, that may not always be possible. A Zoom or video chat may help you to establish a feel for the breeder if you can’t visit with them in person. Ask to see the mother of the litter and, if possible, the father too. Find out whether the breeder has a Havanese available for you now, shortly, or is placing you on a waiting list for a future litter. Most breeders won’t ship an unaccompanied Havanese, so find that out early in your conversation, if you are not within driving distance to pick up your puppy.
