Introduction to Selah Havanese over the Generations:

We are pleased to introduce you to the generations of Selah Havanese.  Not all of our dogs are represented on our Girls or Boys page, as that is reserved for our current and/or upcoming show and breeding potential dogs.  As we are so very proud of all of our dogs, we would like to have a page just for those who have given so much love to our family and provided a wonderful foundation for our current dogs to continue from. 

Each of these dogs own a portion of our heart and we are dearly devoted to them, even after they have moved on to new loving forever homes, or reside a retired life with us.  Their value is in who they are and the love they provide, not in their breeding ability.  Each of our dogs are part of our family and are loved beyond measure.  

Please enjoy learning about each of our beloved family members and perhaps you will find some of the dogs found in your puppies pedigree also.  It's always fun to learn more about your puppies relatives.
Generations of Selah Havanese
In order to preserve genetic diversity among our lines, we chose to begin with three separate female lines. This was done intentionally as we feel genetic diversity is a critical element in maintaining health in all canine populations. The most recent research verifies that genetic diversity and health are directly correlated, thus, in addition to health testing, assuring diversity in pedigree and genetics is another step we can take as breeders to do our best to breed as healthy puppies as possible.  

We have also taken the extra expense and effort to run a DNA panel on all our dogs to check their DNA and select for diversity at a genetic level also. There are no guarantees, however, by taking as many precautions as possible, based on the newest technology and research, we can work toward assuring the Havanese remains a happy, healthy companion for the years to come. We are thankful to have paired with many other breeders to make this adventure together, both in securing our foundational females, and in the addition of each of our wonderful males, both from the US and imported from abroad. Without working together, breeders cannot make progress in maintaining the breed. 



Please welcome below our Foundation females, they are the very foundation of every Selah puppy.




Multi CH Camelot's Jewel of Ancient Path

Jewel is one of our foundation females. While she is retired we didn't want to miss the opportunity to introduce her. She was our second Havanese, and our first foundation. She has earned herself three championships, and was the number one UKC Havanese in 2006. Jewel is 9" and 9lb. Jewel is 11yo and is still in perfect health, she just gets better with age. Jewel is a fine Gem! She is often called Jewelsie Pie, as somehow all of our dogs end up with nicknames. Her daughter Pneuma carried down her lines and now her granddaughter Pearl and great granddaughter Denali to produce healthy, happy, and a bit silly puppies. We love our Jewel! Jewel is the devoted companion to my daughter Amanda and will go live with her once she graduates college.

​CH ERAS True Blue Forget-Me-Not

Trista is also retired, but we wouldn't want to leave her out. She is our second foundation female, and is lovingly often called Trissie. We had an unfortunate turn of events that lead us to retire our original Havanese and all of her offspring, thus ending her line, so we needed to start over with a new line. Thus entered Trista into our lives. She comes from generations of health testing. While Jewel may add the sweet and silly to our lines, Trista adds the smart and confident and now her granddaughter Mercy and great granddaughter Ivy are filling her paw prints. Trista remains my constant companion and a spoiled brat as always!

Jr CH Hurricane Ridge's Heart Song of Selah


Melody is our third foundation female, often lovingly referred to as Mel Mel. We were thrilled to add this lovely girl and her Hungarian pedigree to our breeding program for greater diversity. She comes from generations of health testing which is very important to us as we strive for the healthiest puppies possible. Melody has produced some very lovely puppies, including our beautiful Harmony and Lyric, and grandma to our Echo and Zadie. Melody is quite a tomboy, despite her lovely looks. She adds a bit of spunk to our lines along with a dash of sweetness, as she is a very sweet girl who gets into a bit of mischief. Melody is now retired but always a sweetheart. She is now enjoying watching her grandbabies grow up.


CH JD's Mary​ Heavenly Princess

Our precious Molly was our very first Havanese and the reason we fell head over heals in love with the breed. She was everything we were looking for... well balanced, non-shedding, not yappy, happy and social, a little lap dog who loved to go everywhere with us. She was suppose to be our foundation, however, after two litters we discovered that there were health problems among some of her relatives. Molly at age 14, and all of her children, remain healthy to this day, however, we just didn't want to take the risk of what may be lurking behind her pedigree, so we decided to start over. Molly retired and remained part of the family for several years. Eventually we decided Tony's parents could use a good therapy dog so she went to live with them. To this day Molly is his mom's dearly beloved companion, traveling around with her on all her adventures. Molly has the perfect life.






Jr CH Selah Old World Elegance

Queen Anne is a Trista/Harley daughter, from Trista's first litter and the only Trista puppy we kept, but she has three beautiful daughters who will help carry on Trista's line.  She has lived up to her name, pure elegance and assured confidence of royalty.  She has been a pure delight to have in our home and has been an absolutely fabulous producer of 'carbon copy' puppies.  Each and every one of her puppies have her lovely temperament, robust good health, and sheer beauty.  In all of her regality, we do sometimes call her Queen Annie, but we NEVER just call her Annie... how degrading. :)  Queen Anne has retired and is living a life of luxury as Grandma's constant companion.  




Queen Anne and her Daughters:
 Queen Anne, Joy, Meekah and Mercy

Four beauties, four sweet babies.  Queen Anne being the matriarch of the group, but closely followed by her lovely daughters who follow in her pawprints in looks and temperament, making wonderful therapy dogs and perfect companions.  These beauties are VERY smart, compassionate, and greatly desire to comfort their humans.  Slight differences can also be seen, Queen Anne is very regal, Joy fits her name is is full of compassion and happiness, Meekah is very calm and gentle and loving and Mercy, the baby of the family, is the typical happy go lucky, I just want to make you laugh, but she still maintains the absolute desire to comfort her people. 

Selah Perpetual Happiness


Joy lives up to her name, she is full of so much love and happiness, she is very confident and also very attentive to her people, always desiring to bring them happiness and comfort.  Just at the time Joy was going to start her show career she sustained an injury falling off the grooming  table, resulting in tearing both her acl and requiring several months of crate rest to help them heal.  After this, we decided that Joy will live her days as a beloved pet and not enter the show ring. Joy had two litters and is now retired from breeding.  Her daughter Ivy will now carry on her joy for life into the next generation.  We are thrilled with the lovely puppies Joy had and thankful we were able to keep her beautiful Ivy.    Joy remains here with us and a constant companion to myself and my daughter Abigail.  Joy has more love inside her than we thought was possible.  ​We generally call her Joy Joy, as it makes her so happy and her tail just wags and wags.




Four generations:  Trista, Queen Anne, Joy, Ivy

Pure LOVE!!!  We are so proud of these girls.  They are not only beautiful, they are so full of love and their desire to comfort and bring happiness never stops.   On top of all this, they are smart, and can learn just about anything and are willing and able to take on any new trick you bring at them. These girls bring great joy to our hearts and life.




CH Selah Breath of Heaven

Pneuma (New-ma) is the daughter of Jewel and Harley.  She is our only keeper pup to carry on Jewel's line.  Pneuma is a breath of fresh air, having all the silliness and laid back attitude of her mom.  Pneuma is often called Pneumie (new-me). She is very easy to live with and is a pleasure to have around.  Pneuma is a wonderful companion for my developmentally disabled daughter, giving great patience and compassion. She makes an excellent sleeping partner for her and helps bring cheer when she isn't feeling well or is having a hard day.  Pneuma truly is a 'Happy Puppy', which is what my daughter calls black and white puppies, which are her very favorite, and Pneuma is her favorite of all.  Pneuma is retired from breeding but remains my daughters constant companion.  





Four generations:  Jewel, Pneuma, Pearl, Denali

Nothing like a family of silly, snuggly, easygoing, little love bugs to fill your day with smiles.  We are so very happy and pleased with these beautiful girls.  They are wonderful companions, great moms, and perfect family members.  The manner in which they take life in stride is inspiring and brings a calm to those who are blessed enough to love them.








CH Selah Perfect Harmony

Harmony is the daughter of Melody and Ruger.  Her nickname is Harmie. Harmony is the beloved 'kid' of my daughter Lizzie, and is a very spoiled and pampered pooch indeed.  Harmony loved the show ring and really shined as she loved to show off and prance around.  She easily earned her Championship.  As a puppy Harmony was quite a spicy little girl, which helped in the show ring. As an adult she is very sweet and smart, but still maintains a bit of spice. She adores Lizzie and and loves to do tricks for her.  Lizzie has fun teaching her new silly tricks and loves Harmony like a child.








Selah Lyrics in Motion


Lyric is a very sweet and snuggly little girl.  The show ring was not for her, as her greatest desire is to sit and snuggle on someones lap.  Lyric is full of love and likes to share it with everyone.  She is a happy girl and enjoys a bit of playfulness.  Lyric had two litters and we were blessed with our Echo to carry on the family line.  Lyric is now retired and happily is the princess living with the Dayton family, along with three of our other pups, including her full sister who looks just like her.  While we miss her terribly, we are thrilled that she has a wonderful life, is loved and is sharing her love with her forever family. Sometimes things are just suppose to happen and Lyric's forever family picked her out when she was just a weeeee pup and staying here as our keeper, but they were persistent in wanting to add this sweet girl to their family and their patience paid off in Happily Every After.






CH Bydand Rolling Thunder At Selah

Harley was our very first male.  He is the very sweetest boy, has a lovely silky coat that never tangles (don't I wish everyone had this coat!). He is very easy going and adaptable.  Not only does he have great health behind him, his sire was also the #1 Havanese and Eukanuba winner.  Harley has such a sweet temperament he didn't love showing, however he easily finished his Championship.  Harley is the sire, grandsire or great-grandsire to most of our puppies.  Harley is the much loved companion of my son Alex, who loves to take him fishing boating.



Selah Leavin N Impression


Aspen is the son of Davino and Pneuma.  He is a very handsome boy and won is first AKC 4pt major and a Group 2 his first weekend I showed him.  He is now going to be a show boy in Canada!  He is now owned and loved by Brian Scott of Weylinmarsh Havanese.  We are hopeful he will have wonderful success in his show career in Canada and the US and eventually sire a beautiful litter for us.






JR CH Selah Shoot Em Up At Selah

Ruger is a Trista/Harely son, and is a sweet boy, just like his daddy Harley.  He is the sire of Harmony and Lyric.  He is owned and loved by our dear friends Maishelle and Allison.  Ruger is now retired from breeding, but will always be their beloved companion.





Limited Edition of Velvet Dreams


Armani was imported to the US by myself and my friends Maishelle and Rita.  He is the litter brother of Zuri.  Armani had limited showing and just didn't enjoy it.  It was mutually decided it would be best for Armani to  live with a friend of ours as her therapy dog.  He is now her devoted companion and is a treasure which she adores each and every day.  He has helped to brighten her days and brings her much love and joy. She thinks he is the very best dog ever, as he is so very sweet and loving and attentive to her needs. They were simply made for each other!




Selah's Toymaker


Tonka is the son of Melody and Zuri.  He is the happiest dog alive!  He has such and easy going and happiness about him everyone falls in love with him.  Tonka is owned and adored by one of our puppy families, however, he is being kept intact so hopefully he will one day sire a litter for us.  Tonka has completed all of his health testing.  We really love this little boy!
