Abuelas Havanese Puppy Health and Care
Our dogs eat the finest home cooked foods and get lots of exercise
daily. We only breed dogs that have passed their health tests
suggested by the
Havanese Club of America. All OFA
available to you.
- Our dogs’ eyes are examined annually for heritable cataracts
by a board certified veterinary ophthalmologist and registered
with the Canine Eye Registry Foundation (CERF) at Purdue
- We check for patella luxation, (slipping of the kneecaps), our dogs are certified

- Hearing is BAER tested, and certified "normal" in both ears.
- Hearts are monitored by a cardiologist/veterinian and certified "normal"
with the OFA.
- Hips are X-rayed for hip dysplacia after 2 years of age and
certified with OFA*.
- *In attempt to minimize risk to our healthy dogs, we only preform X-Rays when they go in for a dental or another procedure that also require anesthetics.
We will only have one to two litters per year. Our puppies are microchipped at the time of their comprehensive health screening by my vet at 8 weeks of age. They go home with food, toys, a crate, leash and collar, copies of the CERF certificates from mom and dad, in other words, everything you need for you and your puppy to start a perfect relationship.
We provide you with written instructions regarding shot/vaccination records, feeding instructions, grooming instructions, grooming supplies and recommendations.
You are also provided instructions for completion of the microchip information needed to register the chip with AKC Companion Animal Recover System. We use the Home Again chip, the most popular in the USA. The microchips are used to permanently identifiy animals in case of loss. Most humane societies and rescue groups now have microchip readers. This enables the facility to contact the owners.

We do keep a waiting list when no puppies are available. These are approved application with a paid deposit. Normally,
this is done when we have pending arrivals.

We allow puppies to go to their forever home when they are 10-12 weeks old.
5. Do you offer a guarantee?
Yes, we guarantee your puppy for life. We guarantee that you can return your puppy/dog at any time during its
life, no questions asked. We also guarantee the puppy from any genetic disorders, which would significantly shorten
the lifespan of your pet, for 1 year. Our contract will explain this guarantee in full detail.
6. Can you ship my puppy to me?

7. Where do you live?
We live in Central Arkansas, just outside of Little Rock. The closest airport to us is Adams Field in Little Rock.
8. Do you allow us to breed or stud our dog?
No, we do not... Unless your puppy is sold as a show puppy, you will not receive breeding rights and in fact, your pet
must be spayed or neutered by the age of 12 months. Your puppy will have AKC limited registration. If you breed or stud your dog anyway, its offspring will not be
eligible for AKC registration and you would be in violation of your contract.
9. Do we have to sign a contract?
Yes, you do! This is for your protection, the puppy’s protection, as well as ours. This will ensure there to be no
misunderstandings or misrepresentations.
