I've always been an animal lover and growing up our family always had dogs and horses. My father, being an avid hunter, had sporting dogs of
some sort. When I was a teenager, I begged my dad to buy me a horse, got interested in horse showing and enjoyed barrel racing at local

Due to living situation and job requirements, I hadn't had a dog for many years. So in 2001, I was ready to get a dog again and a good friend of
mine suggested I come to the West Palm Beach show to see all types of breeds. My first time at a show and I loved seeing all the dogs. I came
around the corner and here were these fuffy, happy, bouncing dogs. It was like a magnet and I couldn't leave ring side. I got my first Havanese
pet 4 months later. Then over the next few years, I kept going to the shows to watch and acquired two more Havanese. Then in 2005 I had my
first litter and throught I would give dog shows a try. In 2008 I finished my first Champion which I finished in Bred By Exhibitor. Now in 2015, I
have either bred or co-owned Havanese who are champions.  I enjoy showing my own dogs but on occasion have used a professional handler.

I love the Havanese breed and will always breed for health, temperment and to improve on the pedigree.
