3/23/06 The goal of most reputable breeders is to improve the breed and provide healthy pets. Due to the relative newness of this breed in the US, breeders are being very careful about health testing and selective breeding of only the most healty and best quality Hav's. Due to the expense the health care, testing, AKC showing to confirm breeding stock quality, etc., few breeders do nothing more than cover expenses (if you are lucky!!) If you are interested in proceeding, I would suggest that you contact the Havanese Club of America or a regional Hav club near you. They can guide you along the way. I can tell by your inquiry that you would want to research this venture and make sure you don't proceed without knowing all that you should to be a reputable breeder. Cathy
