Prairiwind Policies

1. PET Havanese puppies are sold on a spay/neuter contract. They are shipped after 9 weeks.

2. SHOW/BREEDING Havanese puppies are sold on a different contract. The show/breeding puppies are sold with co-ownership and a contract that the puppy MUST be shown and finished to its AKC Championship before it can be bred.

3. All Havanese puppies are given full exams before going to their new homes and are sold with a 5 year genetic health contract.

4. All Havanese puppies are raised in my home and underfoot and are well socialized.

5. When you contact me about a Havanese puppy, I will send you info on the upcoming or available litters. Once you decide on a puppy, I will ask you to fill out my questionnaire and email it to me.

6. I require a deposit of $600 to hold the puppy. Full payment is expected by the time the puppy is 6 weeks old.

7. Havanese puppies generally leave home after 9 weeks old. I hope that my puppy people stay in contact with me, with pictures and stories, I love hearing about my babies. I also continue to provide help and assistance for the puppy buyer long after the puppy has left my home.
