About Happy Tails Havanese

Welcome to Happy Tails Havanese!

Our lives haven’t been the same since we were introduced to our first Happy Havanese, Luna, in 2012. We knew we wanted a small toy breed that would be sturdy, sweet, smart, affectionate and hypoallergenic (shed free). So we carefully researched the toy breed that would best fit our needs. That’s when we found the Havanese, a beautiful, intelligent, Cuban dog, bred for companionship. We knew that we would need to brush her to maintain her silky, luxurious coat, and we loved that she was bred to be an inside companion dog because we wanted her to be our baby. We were convinced this was the right breed for us.

And so it began…our love affair with Havanese. At the time, good quality Havanese were difficult to find in Colorado Springs, so we purchased Luna from another state and had her hand delivered to us. When we purchased her, we had no idea how she would change not only our lives, but our daughter’s as well. Luna is an outstanding girl with an incredible clown-like personality. I swear she actually smiles at us. Luna quickly became a treasured member of our family, but Havanese are like potato chips. You can’t have just one! 

Not long after we got Luna, my daughter’s dog passed away from cancer so we bought her a beautiful male Havanese. She immediately fell in love with him and named him Chewbacca. Chewie is funny, athletic, smart, and my daughter’s best friend for life. Now that my daughter, Tammy, and I both had a havanese, we realized how truly extraordinary the breed really was. So of course, we decided that Luna needed a friend. Along came our quirky little girl, Wookie. She is the only dog I’ve ever owned who actually tries to communicate with us, and the funny thing is I usually understand her. When she isn’t trying to tell us something, she can be found snuggled up in her favorite spot in the world, my lap. Tammy saw how much Chewie enjoyed coming over to my house to play with my girls, and she decided Chewie needed a friend as well. So of course beautiful and sweet Macy entered the picture. With the addition of her adorable cuddly girl, Macy, Tammy’s family was now complete. However, Luna, Wookiee, and I decided that we needed just one more. So we added the baby of the family, Bella. Bella was the final member of our havanese family. With her fun and outgoing personality, she truly was the missing piece to our puzzle. Between my three and Tammy’s two, we now have the Fab Five of havanese, and we are forever loyal to this amazing breed! 

After falling so thoroughly in love with the breed and doing more research, we decided that there couldn’t be any better representatives of this remarkable toy breed, so we knew we’d have to breed our fur babies. People in Colorado Springs didn’t have easy access to our favorite breed and needed another reputable Havanese breeder. We knew that we fit the bill! So we became a small, family AKC breeder, who love their dogs like children. We don’t believe in breeding countless litters of puppies just for profit. Our puppies are socialized, loved, cherished, and pampered members of the family. We are confident that our little darlings will quickly transfer all of their love, friendship, and snuggles from our family to yours. With their Happy Havanese tails a wagging and their Hearts full of love, it is our prayer that they will enrich your lives as much as they do ours.
