Jump forward many years later and my family and I are now on our own journey with these wonderful Havanese. My mom is retired from over 28 years of showing and breeding champions (but very much a help to me), my five children are growing up too quickly and my love of raising puppies can not be ignored. In honor of my mom I am carrying on the torch and the name Court Jester Havanese.
Life does not allow me to currently show my dogs, but I strive to breed from champion and grand champion lines to pass on the best to my babies. I know the AKC standard and seek only to breed dogs that measure up to the standard in temperament, structure, form, movement, and of course, health. It’s exciting to see show quality puppies in my litters regardless of whether they ever get shown or not.
My vet checks patellas & hearts, which are of the biggest concern in the breed and I learn from other breeders what is in their lines, if anything, to hopefully avoid passing on genetic health issues. We live in an imperfect world, prone to sickness and disease, but we can still do what we can to try and avoid major health issues. I believe in preserving this amazing breed and only breed purebred Havanese.
I look forward to placing a snuggly, silly, wiggly, sweet, puppy in your family so that you too can experience the joy and companionship these pups bring.
