About Selah Havanese Puppies
of our dogs are AKC registered. All of our dogs are screened by a
Veterinary Board Certified Ophthalmologist. Our dogs that are 1 year or older are
screened for patellar luxation, BAER hearing, and cardiac. The test results
are registered with OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals). They also have had blood panels to check for liver and kidney function and a full DNA evaluation through UCDavis.
Our show prospect puppies
are sold on full AKC Registration with a contract that
states that the puppy must be shown and finished to it’s AKC
championship as well as complete and pass all health testing before it
can be bred. Please let me know if you are interested in a show prospect puppy
so we can begin discussing additional contract details and purchase
Our companion puppies are
AKC registered and sold on a “non-breeding” spay/neuter contract and
must be spayed or neutered at 10-18 months of age. Puppies go to their new
families around 9-12 weeks of age. We offer a congenital health
guarantee on all pups, and lifetime buy back policy.
puppies are BAER tested, microchipped, and have a well puppy exam with
verification for your vet. Our puppies also go home with a puppy book
that includes a 3-generation pedigree, health records and information,
vaccination records and information, verification of parents health
testing, breed and training information, puppy
blanket and familiar toy, as well as pictures of puppy and parents.
your application has been approved, you will then have the opportunity
to place a holding fee deposit for a puppy. This will be applied to the purchase price of your puppy. A $500.00 holding fee represents your
commitment to a Selah puppy and also our commitment to you. By sending a holding fee you are placed on the priority waiting list and will receive
advanced placement over those who are on the 'no deposit' waiting list. A holding fee guarantee's you a puppy from our current litter, if available, or
from an upcoming litter. If we cannot provide you with a puppy within
18 months, the deposit is fully refundable if you so desire, or you may
continue to wait for our next litter. Because we can't predict what
sex/color/type of puppies may be born, and events in life suddenly
change, holding fees are fully transferable to a future litter for up to two years. If you
should be unable to fulfill your commitment to a puppy for any reason
the deposit is non-refundable.
Litters are evaluated at 8 weeks. At that time I will decide which puppy/s will be staying here as potential show pups. The rest of the litter will then be 'sorted' according to the unique temperament of the puppy and the lifestyle/needs/desires of each family, taking into consideration sex, color and puppy preferences as much as possible. Priority is given to families who have previously placed a holding fee deposit for a puppy. If all else is equal, date of deposit is used to determine placement. Selah Havanese reserves the sole right and authority in the placement of our puppies. The health and well being of our puppies is always of utmost importance to us and we will only place puppies into homes where we feel they will thrive. While we attempt to meet sex/color preferences, our puppies are always placed first and foremost according to the temperament of the puppy and how well it will fit into the lifestyle and expectations of the new potential home.
puppies MUST be picked up in person at our home.
We feel this is a very important aspect, learning where your puppy was
raised and also giving the mom’s a chance to meet the family that is
taking their precious baby home.
