While Poppa Poppie (left) is perfectly willing to sire another litter now, we believe it best for Momma Lucie (right) to take a break. She is in heat now, but we are working hard to keep her from breeding. Of course we love producing our beautiful Havanese puppies, but our pack is part of our family. Their health always comes first! So, Momma Lucie is resting and we will most likely allow Poppie and her to breed next heat in 6 months, around mid-March. That means we may have another litter of beautiful Poppie/Lucie Havanese in late May- ready to go to their new homes in August. Great timing because it allows you to take those summer trips but get your puppy before the Fall rush hits. Feel free to join our growing waiting list by sending us an email telling us how to best reach you. And of course, we always enjoy having a phone conversation in order to get to know you and what you are looking for in your new “family member.”
Meanwhile, I encourage you to scroll back through ALL of our past litters. I think after you do you will agree that Hush Harbor Havanese really ARE “so much more than just a cute little dog”!
This coming Friday, the day after tomorrow, we must say good-bye to the smallest of the litter, Lil’ Sister. Her new Daddy Person is flying to the Memphis airport where we will deliver her. From there they will fly on to Atlanta. Waiting for this little sweetheart are her new stay at home Mommie Person and her four children! Oh, and did we say that Lil’ Sister is small- well she does not know that! She can take on her brother and her sisters with no problem, so we are confident that she will be well suited for her busy family!
They are quite the pair, evenly matched as they both weigh in at 3.8 pounds at 8 ½ weeks old. Ollie will be living with his big brother, Max. They have the same father, sire Poppie! Madison will be with her Mommie and Daddy Person’s, experienced small breed dog owners who will love her up in every way!! We will miss them, but are confident that they will bring LOTS of JOY to their new homes!!
Hush Harbor Havanese is a family affair. We began as a husband, wife and daughter team. WE have now added a son-in-law to the team! We also have a multi-generational Pack. Our Havanese Pack works hard to teach our “little ones” how to be well behaved Havanese. That is why we keep our pups until they are nine weeks old. We feel that this next 4 weeks are critical!
The litter spends nearly three weeks in the safety of their roomy whelping pan, located near our bedroom. From there they are moved into their “Puppy Palace”, shone in several of the photos in this website. At six weeks, the pups experience much change. They go to the vet for their first round of puppy shots, they transition from puppy mush to dry puppy food and their Momma slowly but deliberately weans them.
Now they are ready for short times of “free play” along with the rest of the pack in a real living room. Now they will learn how to be well mannered Havanese. It looks like wild play, which it is, at first. But slowly we all work together to teach the pups how to behave in this new environment. It takes us all- myself, my husband, the Momma and Poppa, and with this litter we have the help of big sister, Millie. That is all part of the plan- Millie is being trained how to be a good baby sitter now, but this will serve to teach her how to be a good Momma when her time is right. From generation to generation. Oh, and did I mention that we also have great-grandma Grace who steps in when she feels that we are lacking in any way.
Enjoy this video- notice that Poppa Poppie has decided it’s time for the pups to be less rowdy and a bit more respectful. Thanks Poppie- they were just a bit over the top.
Once again, all of our pups have been placed before they celebrate their 5th week.
The 4 pups from Lucie’s litter and the 3 from Ellie’s are ALL RESERVED!
We are blessed to know that they have each found their forever homes. We will spend the next month working to: socialize them, start them on their puppy vaccinations, monitor their food, regulate their play time and help them adjust to the use of their potty pad.
Our pack of adult Havanese will teach them to be well behaved Havanaese. Their Momma Lucie and big sister Millie will spend hours playing and conducting puppy pre-school, as will Momma Ellie and Daddy Chaco with their litter.
Then, when they turn 9 weeks we say good-bye. We are able to do so because by then we will have made new Hush Harbor Family friends. We will hae had many conversations and discussions and gotten to know the new family members as our own friends. How can we NOT spread the joy of our Hush Harbor Havanese with these expectant new friends??
If you would like to join our, already begun, waiting list for our next season of pup next spring, please contact us here at Karen.HushHarborHavanese.com.
This beautiful female is now four weeks old. She is eating puppy mush four times a day and nursing well. She loves to play with her litter mates and older sister. She has been seen to use her potty pad, but that was coincidence. She will slowly begin to learn to to there for potty. She will be ready to travel to her new home in FIVE weeks!!
Brother, Tux, black with white chest, toes and chin is also RESERVED.
He will be called Louie!
Because we have several inquiries, we can not hold a pup without a $500.00 deposit. Give me a call at 314-772-4874 so that I can answer all of your questions about Hush Harbor, our procedures and our pups!
Our puppies open their eyes at about 10 days and “get their legs” soon after. This means that they spend a little more time, each day, navigating around their warm clean whelping pan. It doesn’t take much to wear them out, and so they still spend the majority of their time nursing and sleeping. By the end of the third week, they begin to have spurts of energy. They move more quickly, they make expressive noises and they relate to each other in new ways. It’s a difficult call as to when to move them to their new situations because they seem to be bored one moment and then, sure enough, they pass out. I have learned that any change creates stress for the pups. So, I will take my time and be sure they are ready before I change their setting. But get ready- once they begin to move around in their Puppy Palace, it REALLY gets fun here at Hush Harbor!!
Three of these four pups are RESERVED.
Only the Black & White female from this litter is AVAILABLE.
