AKC GCH Ch Ludico Who's That Girl, aka Marlo, earned her grand championship in Portland, Oregon just under 1 year from her best baby puppy in show win.
- La Nina (Abreu) has completed her health testing. I am awaiting results from OFA for her hips and elbows. The vet thought she had good hips and didn't appear to have any issues. She passed her eye exam and results have been sent into OFA as well. I will be breeding her to El Nino and this will be a 100% Cuban litter. I am looking forward to seeing what they produce. Her DNA has been collected and sent into AKC.
- I had originally planned on breeding Queen this year but after reviewing my contract with her breeder, I need to wait until she is championed. She turns two the end of March and I will finish up her health testing. Her DNA results have been sent into AKC.
- I do plan on breeding Marlo and Ellie Mae later this year. They turn 2 the end of July. I am currently planning on doing preliminary hips and elbows on Ellie Mae. She has been short cycling and after consultation with my reproduction vet, it was suggested I breed her on her next cycle. Marlo will be on schedule to have her hips and elbows tested the end of July or early August.
My wait list is full at this time for 2019. Unless I have a number of people who drop off, it will more than likely be 2020 before a puppy will be available. Please take the time to find a breeder you are comfortable with. It is easy to fall in love with a puppy but you need a breeder to stand by them. I am expecting a lot of backyard breeders, commercial breeders, and puppy mills to start producing a lot of Havanese puppies. You may be asking why. A Havanese went Reserve Best In Show at Westminster in February 2019. Many of the local breeders, including myself, have seen an increase in the normal requests for puppies. Please visit potential breeders and make sure they health test. Results can be found at ofa.org. If you have the name of the parents you can look up their results. My dogs have links to all their health testing. You can find them under each dog in my girls and my boys. I wish you the best in finding the right puppy!
