Hello! Welcome to our guestbook. Please drop us a line, Thanks.
Love the site..To all who read this, These Havanese are truly live in heaven. True little angels..
These pictures are wonderful. when I save up enough $ I'm getting myself one (or two)babies!Diane
What wonderful dogs! I fell in love with the breed when I saw a special done on animal planet. It is nice to know there is a responsible local breeder. We do not have one, but someday!Is your kitty a ragdoll? We have a ragdoll and she is just the most wonderful cat.Good luck with your babies.
I fell in love with my puppy as soon as I saw her. Mary-Ann was super nice and extremely helpful. I recommend this site to anyone looking for a havanese! You will not be disappointed.
Hey if anyone needs a great dog come on over to my house (:All of the pictures are great mom!
Things happen for a reason and sometimes you stumble upon that reason. In a drawn out search for my perfect puppy I found Mary-Ann and her brood of Havanese. I couldn't be more excited to have found my puppy and I couldn't feel any luckier (for her and for me) to have Mary-Ann to guide us through this adventure! Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Mare the new babies are adorable!! We are so happy with our little baby!!I can't wait for you to see Cooper again, he has grown up so fast and he is doing so well!! Take care!
The pictures are amazing!! It almost looks like you had them done professionally. The dogs are so cute!!
Sadie is a year old today and doing great! We're so happy to have found her. Good luck with all your puppies!
We are the future "grandparents" of Staci's new puppy. We couldn't be more thrilled. Your attention to detail and follow-up are amazing, especially with 3 kids, 2 cats, 4 dogs and a litter of 10! Your love and caring shines through in every picture. Can't wait to meet you in May.
Awww Lorraine & Marty, your kind words touched our hearts tonight ... we appreciate that you noticed. We never try we just do and our Havanese reflect that. Thanks for signing our guestbook as it is very new to our site and love from hearing from all the great people we meet along the way. We look forward to meeting you as well.Hugs, Mare
Here is a huge HAPPY HAPPY to our puppies that turned 1 year old on April fools day... You are all such great puppys and adorable! Happy Birthday, to our Mudbud, Bella, Dali and Lucy! We love you all very much and are so glad your part of our extended family!Willow and Ivy sayyyyyyyyyy WOOF
Mary-Ann and Derek and family, We cannot tell you how pleased we are with our Havanese.. your dedication and everything you did the day we were interested and years later has made us such proud owners. We appreciate all the phone calls you take and advice.. your dedication to your dogs is like nothing else we have hear of. Thanks again!
I can't wait to meet the babies in person when they come for their vaccines! I still see about 3 puppies from your last litter and what beautiful babies and temperaments! They certainly are HAND HELD! Mya is such a great mom and really has some of the best looking Havanese pups!
Thank you Dr Sarah! They look forward to you too... I hope I asked for enough time for our visit, as you have alot of work to do. I think I need a van to bring them all in. Oh my, we were kinda set for some troubles here with so many and we have not had an ounce of trouble, not even a low birth weight. They all are thriving. I dont think Mya will ever be the same. I cook for her several times a day to supplement her puppy food! Thanks for all your support and love to us, we tell people about you all the time. Hugs, Mare
Mare, the babies are getting so big!! I see Cooper in two of them, so cute!! Hope all is well!
Staci, Lorraine and I wanted to thank you again for all your genuine kindness, caring and thoughtfulness throughout this entire adoption process. Your attention to detail and quick response to even the smallest question or concern has been extremely comforting to us. Phoebe has already become a wonderful addition to our family. But we have also made a new friend by having had the opportunity to meet you and your family.I have known many many balloons in my life. Most are filled with nothing but hot air. When that air cools they deflate and fall back to earth. Your balloon however is filled to capacity with pure love. It cannot be deflated and will soar forever. You fill everyone you meet with a little of that love. That is your special gift. Please know that you have made a permanent positive impact on all of us.

Hi Maryanne,I love your website, stories and photos. :) :)
Mare, You have gone above and beyond the call of duty of any breeder. I am so grateful to have found you. Scout and Sailor are doing fantastic and are bringing so much joy to my life. I cannot thank you and your family enough for all you have done. Please know that your efforts are greatly appreciated and the results of your hard work and determination show in my puppies. They are loving, happy, healthy, playful, adorable little dogs. I have been singing your praises and will continue to highly recommend you. Sincerely, Andrea
Hi Mare,I wanted to express my thanks to you for taking the time with me on the phone to answer all my questions about owning a Havanese. I felt I could talk to you for hours. I appreciate your help and your understanding of my situation with my elder sheltie, Andre'. I know that when the time is right, I will be calling you with hope of owning one of your beautiful Havanese babies. I have spoken and followed up with several Havanese breeders before calling you and not one of the people I spoke with can compare with your knowledge and helpfulness as well as taking the time to explain many things to me about the breed. I appreciate your dedication to the breed. I thank you again and will be calling you when I am ready.
Mare--from our very first phone conversation we knew you were "the real deal"-- your love for what you do to bring happiness into the lives of your puppy owners is apparent at first glance. Our visit to your home to pick up Gordon "Litle Dude" will remain in our memory bank forever. You are a gem and we are so thankful for the experience. Another Havanese is in our future plan...we look forward to talking again. Patricia & Jack
Bought our havanese 'Leo' from a breeder in Vancouver--personally traveled there to pick him up! When considering purchasing a 2nd one,will definitely consider one of yours! Lovely website as well!
Dear Mare, I cannot say enough about our little Lily. At 10.5 weeks she is beyond sweet, very, very smart and extremely loving with just a drop of attitude - perfect. While we realize the breed itself is all of these things, we truly believe your loving care of Lily's parents and Lily herself is very much responsible for making her such a wonderful little dog. We are so pleased we found you and your puppies. They are very special - and so are you! Thank you so much for raising such loving dogs in such a wonderful and homey environment. Jean & Richard
Mare, Cooper is 2 today!! I can't believe it! Happy Birthday to all of his siblings, Turkey, Gravy, Taters, and the rest of the crew! He has really become part of our family, we couldn't have asked for a better dog(son!). Thank you again for everything! Stephanie
We haven't spoken but I have heard about you for months and finally Cali arrived on Long Island. She is absolutely precious and the family just loves her to death. They cannot get enough of her and Rebecca is thrilled. She is such a loving puppy and it is obvious that you spend a lot of time and give love and attention to your puppies. If anyone is thinking of a Havanese puppy this is the breeder of choice. Thank you for Cali and all the time you spent with Rebecca on the phone, email and continuous pictures and videos as Cali was growing
For those visiting this website because they're thinking about buying a Havanese, don't bother visiting other breeder's websites.........Handheld Havanese is just the breeder you are looking for.
Mare......Cali has settled into her new home much quicker than we could ever anticipate. It's been less than a week but already she's doing her "business" outside with barely any inside accidents. She's the sweetest puppy--and very smart. Just today
the girls had 12 friends over for an end-of-school pool party and Cali was the center of attention! Even though she's teething right now, she never nipped any of the girls in all the excitement, that says alot about the manner in which you raise and train your puppies.
Thanks so much!!!
Thanks to you, my new pal, and to Derek
and Noah for the time you spent with us
on Wed. We loved seeing all the puppies,and especially Boy #2, who will
be ours - and we can't wait!
We apprciate all the love and care you
display and the time and patience you
have devoted to our lengthy conversations.
I am in awe of you!! Hugs, Kathie
Truly wonderful puppies!
Our almost 5 month old pup Teddi is a joy to be around!
My sister recently got a Havanese puppy and it looks just like my precious Frenchie that went to heaven 10 years ago. She must have been mostly Havanese. I miss her so much. I would like very much to be able to get a white Havanese puppy from you. Your pups are beautiful. They make me cry they are so angelic.
Hi Vickie! Thanks so much for the kind words. Lets get talking about you next best friend!
I had gotten my puppy when my other dog passed away. Although nothing can take place in my heart from where Tori made her impression, my new puppy Sophia has done everything in her right to steal it. She is my world now and all I can think about when I'm at work is getting home to my baby. She is the MOST unbelievably smart dog ever. Gorgeous and smart?!?! There's nothing better!!
Awwww Catherine.. Thanks so much, and Thank You for finding us.
We picked up our Miley on December 26th in a snowstorm. She became an instant and vital part of our family. We love her with all our hearts... and couldn't be happier with how well-mannered, smart and beautiful she is! At 9-weeks old she came to us well-socialized, paper-trained and super sweet. Who could ask for more? Thank you Mar & Derek!
Just a line to tell you Tula is doing great. She is 9 lbs and is growing like a weed. She is a joy to have in our lives. Thanks
I just wanted to leave a message thanking you so much for Rylie. She is such a sweet puppy and so well behaved. You have been amazing to work with and have always been there to answer any question I have. I just want to thank you for that. I will be sure to keep in touch and send you updated pictures of Rylie.
Biscuit is doing great. He is about 12.5lb. now. He just graduated from his second class in training. He is very smart and loved it. He will continue in the fall. He is a wonderful, healthy, fun, and loving companion. Thank you for a wonderful addition to my family.
Love to you, Derek and Noah.
Hi Mare! I just wanted to thank you again for this beautiful little puppy that is now part of our family thanks to you! He is the cutest, sweetest, most loving little guy ever. He is making a perfect addition to our family, our kids love him to pieces and he and our other dog are getting along just great. I was so impressed with your high & professional breeding standards. I would recommend any of my friends to come to you for a Havanese if they were interested in getting one. A+++++++++ Thanks again! :-)
Hi Maryanne ,
We couldn't be happier with snoopy. He has such a personality and is so cute. He starting to sleep through the night, thank god. Thank you for sharing.
TULA JUST TURNED 1 ON 12/12. SHE IS DOING GREAT. SHE MADE HER 1ST THERAPY VISIT TO THE NURSING HOME. SHE WILL BE AN AWESOME THERAPY DOG. SHE LOVES GREETING THE PATIENTS AND SEEING WHAT THEY HAVE FOR HER TO EAT. SHE LOVES TO SWIM AND HAS A GREAT TIME IN THE SNOW. WILL EMAIL YOU SOME PICTURES. CLAUDIA
my little one is now a little over 3 years old and is greatly loved by all who meet her. I thank you for her. I am bringing a neighbor to your home to meet the babies. Again,many many thanks.
from now on when I write to you I will use the name Spin for you to know me. zel.
We brought Cole home 3 years ago and cannot be happier with this boy! He was given to our girls for a Xmas present, all the while telling them they were getting "coal" for the holiday. You may remember him, one of the only black pups (with beautiful white markings) who whistled through his nose...and still does. We love him to pieces. He's a wonderful dog with a great temperament and loving energy.
JUST A NOTE TO LET YOU KNOW TULA PASSED HER TESTS AND IS NOW A THERAPY DOG WITH TD INC. WE BELONG TO A GROUP IN ORANGE COUNTY K NINE BANDAIDERS. TULA WILL BE 2 YEARS ON 12/12.
I am 12 and got my beautiful baby girl Nellie from handheld havanese! she is beautiful and she is almost 2 already! I highly recommend handheld havanese for healthy dogs. Nellie hasn't gotten sick once and has no health issues. she has a great temperament and is such a joy! she is intelligent and she wants you to visit her blog nelliefun.weebly.com!! see you there!
We adopted Cooper 2 years ago this November. He is the most amazing dog - the perfect fit for our family of 2 young daughters. No health problems, easily trained and very affectionate. I consider him my third child!
We wanted to touch base and share how much fun it has been since we brought Tootsie home. She just turned a year old and will be celebrating her first Christmas in her forever home. She is a very spoiled little girl! We brought her home last year in the middle of January. She is just a ball of energy and oh so smart. She completes us!
We got our puppy here as a Mother's Day surprise for my mother and she could not have loved him more or been more excited! We all love our Rocco to pieces he has the best personality we're so happy and thankful!! We tell everyone about you guys!!! Rocco aka biscuit sends his love!!
Well it’s been two years since we’ve had our Sadie. We are so in love with her. She has completed our family. She is loving, sweet, so affectionate, playful and super smart!! If we ever get another dog it will be another Havanese and it will definitely come from Hand Held Havanese!!!! So happy!!
I love your site - love how loving you are, I have never had any dog except for a one on the family farm. I am interested in having a dog but am allergic but this is the breed I am able to have or Shi Tzu, Maltese, Poodle etc. I just love the black and white one in the pics.
I would be intersted in pics of the litter for May. Thank you.
I have a wonderful male pup from a litter of 12/18/2018. He is the love of our lives. I would just love to get him a play mate, but I will wait until I have him trained. You see I' 60 and he is our 1st puppy ever. Please, take one home you'll find a love you never forget.
