Guardian program basics for purebred Havanese or Havaton

In order for us to give our dogs the best possible home, it is important for us to limit how many dogs we keep in our home. However, to be a breeder of quality dogs we need to continue, evaluate and add quality bloodlines into our breeding program. We like to keep a few of our pick puppies to monitor their growth and development, and some of these puppies will eventually fit into our breeding program -- we prefer to place these pick puppies in guardian homes.  A havanese needs to be a part of the family to develop their full potential and this is why we have the guardian program.  

We are giving the dog to the guardian family to raise and love and keep as a member of their family.  This program allows local families an opportunity to own one of the best Havanese available without paying for it. The family must be approved as guardian parents and agree to abide by our contract of care.

The guardian home program is an excellent situation for the dog, it's a great deal for guardian parents and is ideal for producing an exceptional Havaton breeding program. It is one of those "win - win" situations for everyone involved.  


Guardian Homes Must Have the Following

  • Own their own home

  • Have their own car to transport the dog

  • Prior experience dog ownership is a must

  • Be willing to crate and house train the puppy.  

  • Afford to provide required high quality food.

  • Be prepared to have their own vet listed as a reference

  • Fenced backyard to contain the puppy, or be willing to adequately supervise puppy at all times while outside.

  • Be available to drive dog to and from our home for breeding and whelping

  • Keep us updated on the dog’s progress via email or text.

  • Be willing to socialize the puppy by taking it everywhere possible and showing him/her life in general.

  • Live within easy driving distance to Gresham, Oregon. We do not place guardians out of the state.

This is just a brief overview of the program. If you feel you meet the above criteria and would like to be considered for our guardian program, please contact me via phone so we may speak further.
