Pippa – Testimonial

Hi Carol,

I can not say enough good things about Carol who runs Have Havanese Puppy and her husband Dennis. The are very conscientious breeders who put the dogs and puppies first.  They keep their number of liters  low which is so telling about how they care for and nurture them. They truly love each puppy as their own and  take amazing care of them until the day you pick them up. Her communication is great and they are both so kind. The puppies were born before the pandemic and picked up in the heart of it, and they handled it all with such responsibility.

When we picked Pippa up Carol had the cutest baby bag put together for her with lots of goodies, extra food and a packed on such helpful information about the breed printed out and highlighted.

Our puppy slept through the night since day one! Which was incredible and showed how well they were cared for. Carol followed up to see how Pippa was doing multiple times which again shows that these are not just business transactions for her and how well these puppies are loved.

Our family is SO lucky and blessed that it happened to work out that we were able to get a female puppy in that liter formerly Willow – now Pippa.  She is an amazing puppy and blended right into our family immediately.

I can not recommend Carol enough as a breeder. I am so thoroughly impressed and again feel SO BLESSED that it worked out that we were lucky enough to be able to bring one of these puppies into our family. I truly can’t imagine life without her. I am so attached. She is an amazing puppy from an equally amazing breeder.

Thank you so much Carol (and Dennis!!!)


Review from Bradly’s (Beau) Mom

I am thrilled beyond belief.  I have finally gotten my Havanese.  He is adorable and held to such a high standard.
I have never had such a conscientious breeder as Carol Kennedy.  She is as picky as I am, as she loves each and everyone of her pups and makes sure they end up in the right homes.
My pup’s name is Beau and he is a calm, extremely smart, great puppy.
Getting him was so uplifting as Carol had everything in order, she even gave him 2 toys that are truly his favorites.
I count my self as a very lucky owner, finding Carol I hit the jackpot.  She is everything a breeder should be.
I thank her all the time as I truly don’t think I wouldn’t have found this breed this well bred.  No overbreeding here! 
I am blessed I was directed to Carol by a friend.


Review from Sarah’s (Harley) Mom

Carol is a wonderful breeder in my opinion.  She really cares about her puppies. She doesn’t have too many litters in a year and I can see how important they are to her. 
During this crazy time, she handled the process with grace. We conversed over the phone, shared emails about food and supplies, and came up with a suitable way to pick our puppy up. She offered that I could make a deposit and final payment through PayPal which was great.
 Our adorable puppy was already pee pad trained and practically sleeping through the night, which is a testament to her care.
Carol texted goodnight on Harley’s first night away and called after a few days to see how she was adjusting. I know we will keep in touch. 
Carol is simply the sweetest lady and I highly recommend her.
Thank you for our family addition.  We are so thrilled. 

Fancy – Christmas Update


Happy Holidays! I have attached a review for you along with many pictures of Fancy. I couldn’t chose 1 or 2. Feel free to select a few to put on your website. Fancy is all healed from her surgery and has been loving all of the Christmas festivities. She did fantastic on the plane to Arizona and loved meeting her Aunt Sissy (Sissy is the Bischon in one of the Christmas Pictures). Mike’s mom said Sissy was looking for Fancy after we left Arizona, they became pretty close during our time there. We even took Fancy on a short hike around the property in a Pupoose! She LOVED it. His parent’s didn’t want us to take her home and my parents wanted to keep her Christmas day too 🙂 Everyone is amazed at how easy going and friendly she is.

I’m sorry to hear that Denny was in the hospital. Is he feeling better? How was Christmas? Good to hear from you and have a Happy New Year!

We cannot thank you enough for giving us the opportunity to give Fancy a furrever home. She is such a cuddly puppy with the most adorable winking face and we can’t imagine life without her. She has quickly become a member of our family and was quite spoiled this Christmas 😊 Fancy is gentle with everyone that she meets, rarely barks, loves squeaky toys, and is happiest when she is on your lap. Her sweet disposition is a compliment to you. Thank you for ensuring that all of your puppies find safe and loving homes (and for letting us pass your tests 😉). It is immediately apparent that you care deeply about where each puppy is placed. Fancy loves hearing from you on a regular basis too! We’ll continue to send updates and pictures, but here are a few from Christmas and our recent trip with Fancy to Arizona.

Charlie – Loving His New Family

Hi Carol,

Just wanted to update you on Charlie and thank you for raising such an adorable little guy!!

In my first conversation with you, I could feel the love and concern you have for your puppies and I was very impressed by that. I appreciate all the advice & suggestions you gave to me before we brought Charlie home. It made the transition for Charlie and us very smooth.

Charlie’s first appointment with his veterinarian was great. The Dr. said he was a healthy little guy and very well behaved! The paperwork you sent with all his recorded vaccinations made everything easy for the doctor. We did have Charlie neutered this past Monday and he is recovering very well from his surgery!

Charlie loves to play and he seems to like the toys you sent home with him best:) He is full of “fun” energy and loves to explore. He now has full roam of the house, and we use a pen when we are gone for short periods. He sleeps beside our bed at night and goes to sleep with out a peep!! He is eating the food you recommended, and potty training has gone very well. I wasn’t sure how he would adjust from the pad training to outside training, but it was pretty easy.

I can tell you spend a lot of time with the puppies you raise. From day one Charlie loved to be held and gave lots of kisses!!❤️ He also, let me brush him, look in his mouth & ears, and wipe his eye area without a fuss. He listened well and even knew the meaning of some command words. It certainly has made the beginning training easy on us!!❤️

Charlie is a very special little guy and a lot of that comes from his beginning!! Thank you for all the time and love you devoted to Charlie…we are so grateful and enjoy him so much!!!❤️🐶



Winston – Update


Winston has been the best puppy! A lot of the credit besides genetics goes to Carol who has worked with him. We choose to brush him daily, sometimes twice. Often he falls over in our lap on his back and even falls asleep while we are brushing him. He lets us look in and touch his ears. I can hold his paws and look in his mouth. He only had three accidents and that was because he was mixing our green carpeting up as being grass. We have him going inside or outside whichever he chooses to use. I think the ease of this was because of Carol too. She cares so much about her puppies, even sending a little care package for them as they leave with a toy and lots of information. The vet was impressed that we had records that she provided of his medical history. We thank Carol for a wonderful sweet puppy. If we ever decide to get a brother or sister for Winston, we will definitely go through Carol again, we highly recommend her. I went through a breeder in the past that is no comparison to Carol. She has raised the bar.


Update from Angel

Hi Carol,

I have been thinking about you and meaning to send you a note. Angel is doing amazing, she loves her new home! I will send you some pics. She is now 100% trained to ring the bells to go outside. She loves ringing the bell, she rings it so often now because she loves being outdoors to explore! She is such a good girl and loves everyone she sees. Since our last email, she had her next shot at the vet and is on the flea and tick prevention. Our vet says she is such a healthy pup. The girls are on a soccer team and sweet Angel is their biggest fan. We walways take her to cheer them on and to walk around the field while they play. The team loves seeing her too! I enjoy my early morning walks with her before heading to work.
I can’t believe there hasn’t been an interest in Fancy! The girls ask about her often. Nice to know she is in such good hands with you.

Thank you for your note and I hope all is well with you and your family. Hopefully Charlie and Fancy will find forever homes soon.

Best wishes and blessings to you,

Maggie – Doing Great, Enjoying the Day with Big Brother Ollie


We are so grateful that we were able to bring Maggie into our family! She is so sweet and cuddly (she loves to give kisses and nap on your lap), and so funny to watch when she’s a blur of puppy energy! You and your husband are very kind, and it’s obvious that you love all of your puppies like your your own babies. Maggie has a wonderful personality, and everyone who meets her just loves her. She loves to play with Ollie, our 3 year old Havanese. And I think she’s met every kid in the neighborhood on our walks — everyone comes over to see her!

Our experience with you was so much better than the prior breeder we had. We are very grateful for the amount of time you devote to your puppies and that you continue to check in on how Maggie is doing! I know that you will always be there if we need advice. We are so lucky we found you and that we have Maggie!!

We’ll send you updates on Maggie so that you can see her grow up!


Abbie’s 1st Birthday


Abbie will be 12 months old tomorrow. She is doing great. She is so much fun.  Abbie got a new hair cut for her birthday party.🎉🎈She is playing with her wishing star in the pictures. Things are going great with her.  She is not sure that she likes the rain we have been having lately, but will learn to like it just like she learned to love the snow. Abbie is a wonderful addition to our family and we have you to thank for that.😊

Angel Loves Her New Home


We feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful, loving addition to our family through the adoption of sweet, little Angel. She truly is a gift from heaven and has brought such joy to our family. She is so full of life yet gentle and cuddly at the same time. She loves being with everyone and thoroughly enjoys all the attention she is getting. It is amazing how fast and smart she is and the amount of love she spreads to all. Every day she brings more smiles to our faces through her pouncing on toys, the way she follows you around so as not to miss a thing and when she simply curls up in your arms for some needed rest.
It is obvious that she has come to be such an incredible puppy through the love and care that were given to her for the first eleven weeks of her life. Carol is an amazing breeder and ensures that she gives each and every puppy all of her love and attention. We were so impressed with her and the entire process that we wished we could have brought more than one puppy home with us! She is organized, knowledgeable, thoughtful and always available to answer any questions we may have. Once we found Angel on her website, we fell in love. Carol took much time to assure herself that she would be going to a loving, forever home which gave us great comfort in knowing how healthy and loved this little puppy already was. She has a large designated space within her immaculate home for which she is able to watch and care for these puppies at all times. She is always with them and they constantly feel her love. After meeting Carol and her husband, we wouldn’t trust any other breeder in the future.
