Breed: Havanese | Member Since 4/22/2010
The "Rainbow Kids" have arrived! New litter born December 29, available March 2017. Please see our puppy listing.
Located in the foothills of Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains (less than 2 hours from Manhattan or Philadelphia), Merryway offers more than 30 years of exhibition and breeding in the dog fancy. We first ventured into Havanese in 2001. Havanese thrive on human companionship (and vice versa). They have been bred for many years as a companion and playmate, and that is a job they do very well. Our Havanese share our home and yard and our travels to dog shows, where they enjoy winning ribbons and meeting people.
Temperament is at the top of our breeding priority list. We want our dogs to be happy, playful, mischievous, energetic, affectionate, outgoing, and intelligent. A Havanese should be a substantial little dog, robust enough to be a ship captain's companion or a child's playmate. We prefer a slightly wavy coat, but "soft and light" so it seems to float on the air. We also prefer dogs with good, free movement, as a very stilted movement interferes with the breed's natural agility.
