It’s a great feeling to be bringing home a new dog’s into your life. Many people who had pets at home may have had help from their parents when taking care of their dog. But when you are planning to raise some puppies yourself, the responsibilities fall solely on you, and this may be slightly different from joint pet ownership. If you want to be a dog owner, the breed comes first, as personalities of the pet owner and the dog may clash. Not into large dog’s? That’s one way to narrow things down. Do you live in an apartment? Excellent, since a small dog might be exactly what you need for that housing situation, If you live with family and kids, then you probably want a small dog that’s good with little kids – the Havanese is exactly that. Because of their friendly personality, their small size, that they are good with kids, and because this breed hardly sheds, the Havanese is the small dog breed that’s highly recommended.
There’s always a debate on whether it’s better to get an adult dog from a rescue or to buy them as pups from a breeder. Because of the high demand for pure breed Havanese puppies for sale, even finding good breeders that sell them can be a problem. The same situation holds, and is worse, with animal shelters and rescues; good luck if you find pure breeds, much less any Havanese dog’s there. Going online and hopping on your favorite search engine is the fastest way to look for Havanese puppies for sale. But if there are pet shops near your area, you can visit them be instantly in touch with shop assistants who can brief you about the dog, and be there to see and maybe touch the dogs themselves. Do not buy the very first liter of Havanese pups you find, because you impulse buying in this case is actually bad. But if you’re after pure breeds, impulse buying is not recommended. However, if you are not too picky and are not into entering your pet into dog shows, then you don’t need to be too picky with genuine bloodlines.
But a note of caution there, so you don’t end up buying unhealthy pups. Just because so many breeders can be reached doesn’t mean they are not members of puppy mills. If you are not familiar with puppy mills, they exist to produce designer dogs, bred for the purpose of selling them and without regard for following kennel club breeding standards – you’re not sure what kind of dogs were used as parents for breeding, and if the pups do not have hereditary health problems. If you can, try to meet the breeder in his own place, where you can ask to be shown where he breeds his pups, and where he keeps them. If he is a member of a breeding club, it would be easier to do a background check on him and his previous dealings.
