Meet the Parents!
Meet our sweet Havanese!
"Milo Melts My Heart"--Daddy
Our AKC Havanese Male
We just love our beautiful Milo! He is such a gorgeous boy! He is my buddy, and follows me everywhere! He always wants to be right by my side. Even when I go outside to water the plants, he hops up on the couch to stare out the window and make sure he has me in sight! He is such a good boy, and I have to say, quite the genius. I love him to bits! He is our only sire, and the father to all of our puppies here at Island Havanese. He always produces such beautiful puppies. Milo weighs 14 lbs.
More About Milo
Milo my sweetheart
Milo follows me EVERYWHERE. He is such an amazing little guy. He is SO loyal and SO smart, and I love those qualities in a dog. In case you're wondering, how his color changed so much - this is very common in Havanese and happens at a young age (even by about 1 year old). For lots of detailed information on this, please read the section on this website about Havanese Colors. Milo's favorite spot is to sleep in my bed by my feet!
Island Princess Grace
Island Princess Grace from European lines...
Meet Island Princess Grace - aka - "Gracie." She is a gorgeous black and tan Havanese. Her mother was imported from Europe and her grandmother is an International Champion. She carries some amazing colors in her lines with chocolates, black and tans, black and white piebalds and irish pieds. She has the sweetest personality and a beautiful silky coat. Her puppies often carry her incredible coat as well. She is such a sweetheart, and her favorite spot is right next to me in my bed. She has this funny thing she does where she just likes to smoosh up against us whenever she is sleeping for extreme cuddles! Gracie weighs 12 lbs.
More about Gracie
Gracie loves, loves, loves to cuddle. She literally has to make sure she is sardined right next to us whenever we sit down or lay down! She loves to be close, and is such a doll. She is a wonderful mother to her babies and has produced such gorgeous pups as well.
Island Princess Sasha
Our beautiful Sasha

Her pups are always such cuties. Sasha is very smart, fun, and has a beautiful silky coat. We are so happy to have her in our family. She is a wonderful dog. She is spunky, but at the same time very quiet and not a barker at all. Sasha weighs 9 lbs. She is playful, and has such a fun personality.
More about Sasha
Fun, sweet Sasha
Sasha is best described by everyone in our family as "ALWAYS HAPPY!" She seems to always be smiling and is such a fun loving girl. She loves to hop up in our laps for cuddles, and loves to be close. She is such an adorable mother to her pups and just loves to play with them. When most doggy mother's wean their pups, they don't want much more to do with their pups. Sasha is different - she always wants to play and spend time with her babies. She loves being a mom! And when she doesn't have her own babies, she is busy being the best auntie, and mothering the other mamas babies too!
Island Princess Magnolia
Maggie the sweetie!
We flew to Texas to get our beautiful Magnolia. She is such a gem! Our family just adores her. She has such funny antics, and keeps us laughing every day. She adores puppies, and always is trying to visit any pups that our other mama dogs have. Maggie always is trying to visit the babies and cuddle and play with them. We are looking forward to her first litter in 2023! She and Milo will have all chocolate litters since they are both chocolates.
More about Magnolia
Maggie - everyone's friend!
Sweet Maggie loves, loves, loves to play outside! When the weather is bad, and all the other dogs say, "No thanks...not going outside now." Maggie is doing the opposite...she is running outside (we have a doggie door) thrilled to explore the backyard, rain or shine. We always laugh because our Texas girl loves the sunshine! When we were hit by hurricane Ian, she could not figure out why we wouldn't let her go out and play that day! As soon as the storm ended she was the first to explore our yard with us, and yes, the entire white fence in the picture was actually gone after the hurricane!
Island Princess Zuzu
Zuzu - the fancy lady!
Our sweet Zuzu comes from an amazing line of International champions. Her father is a world champion from Europe. We imported her from Europe and are just in love. Although she is beautiful (and she acts like she knows it too!) she still has the sweetest personality and just loves to cuddle!
More about Zuzu...
Zuzu - the music lover!
We laugh because Zuzu actually seems to "smile" alot. She has this adorable little smile on her face as she walks up to us and wants to be pet. She also absolutely loves music! If we start to sing (our family loves music, my children play violin, piano, ukulele for our church, and sing for our church too!) Zuzu will come running whenever she hears someone sing. She just loves it and almost tries to sing along with us! She is such a quiet girl (other than when she is trying to sing with us! 😊) and she rarely barks and just has the sweetest temperament.
Havanese = Love
Adorable Milo Relaxing
Our handsome Milo
Milo loves his summer haircut! I can't resist the famous "puppy cut." It's one of my favorites on Milo. It makes him look just like a teddy bear. That's one thing I love about my Havanese - there are so many fun clips you can have them cut in. True, they are known for their gorgeous long coat, but not everyone may choose to have their Havanese in the full length coat. That's fine, and that is up to you. Our Havanese just want to be loved and cuddled and they really don't mind what your favorite doggy hairstyle may be! I have found mine love putting on a show each time they are done being groomed! They prance around the house showing everyone their "new-do!" For AKC show purposes, the long coat is a must, but for hanging out on your bed, snuggle time by the tv, going to the park, and playing by the pool, you may choose other styles for your Havanese. No one's going to judge you if you can't resist a certain hairstyle. Havanese have such an amazing coat that they can be clipped in a bunch of different styles. Always be sure to take a picture to your groomer. That way your groomer knows what style you have in mind for your precious pooch. And if you don't want to have your Havanese clipped, no problem! Just be sure to brush them every day or two to keep any matts from sneaking in to their beautiful coat.
Milo was lying on his back, and we couldn't resist snapping this picture! He is such a fun little guy.
Your Havanese Puppy will come with his or her own Puppy Gift Bag which includes a blanket with the scent of his or her momma and litter-mates, and a puppy toy. Your puppy will also come with official AKC registration papers, some of the food he has been eating, and a FL vet check health certificate.
Where does the rug end and the Havanese begin?
Milo loves to carry cups and his bowls around. At Christmas time, his favorite spot was under the Christmas tree. So, of course, he would carry his food bowl (with food!) under the tree, and happily munch away!
Here he is again with a giant milk carton. We had it sitting by the door to toss in the recycle bin, but Milo got it before we could take it out! He really thought he hit the jackpot with a whole milk carton! (Don't worry, Mom took it away from him before he could get hurt!)
