Welcome ~ Havanese of Colorado ~ Durango, Colorado
Havanese of Colorado
Havanese of Colorado is located in the mountain town of Durango, Colorado. Our family moved to the mountains in April of 2011. I have been a breeder for 10 years of the wonderful hypo-allergenic Havanese. My puppies are raised in the home along with the adult dogs. Their guardian is Timber a labrador retriever. The pups are introduced to Timber and the gang at the age of 3 weeks. At four weeks of age they have free run of the home where they experience all of the sounds of a happy home.
We specialize in choosing wonderful temperaments and conformation that follows the AKC standard. We hope to have the opportunity to meet your family, and will make every effort to hand deliver your puppy. Shipping is available to buyers outside of Colorado at an additional cost. Our home is only 20 minutes from the airport in Durango, Colorado. I am always available to meet you at your convenience.
Havanese of Colorado
My passion for animals began as a child, with stray cats, and spending many hours in the woods. During my adult years I fell in love with dogs and horses. As I entered my fifties, I knew that the future would be finding a breed of dog to love and share with others.
I spent many years at dog shows seeking the perfect family companion. Intelligence and ease of training were my top priorities. The toy dog group was intriguing with the Havanese at the top of the list. A little companion to sit on my lap, but also sturdy enough to enjoy long walks, or hikes in the mountains.
When I saw how happy and joyful even the adult Havanese were, they stole my heart. The added bonus of a hypo-allergenic coat and their delightful way of moving — the springy gait — that separates them from other toy breeds, I was done with my search.
My passion for living in nature lead me to the town of Durango, CO. I always had this dream in the back of my mind and made the decision to move out west. We live on ten acres in an area called Tecelote which means “owl” in native american. Our home is surrounded by ponderosa trees with jack rabbits and deer as our constant visitors.
My home is always open to folks who would like to learn about this wonderful breed. I am only a phone call away.
