Meet Rebel, the "Leader of the Pack"!  
#1 Male Havanese in Canada for 2017. He's a sturdy, little dog with soft, silky hair and a lively, springy gait. Rebel turn's on the charm to the judges when he is showing but when he is home it's out in the backyard with his pals.
Don't you just love that face!!

What is a Preservation Breeder?

Purposefully Breeding Purebred Dogs.

just say no to designer dogs.jpg


Preservation breeders are dedicated purebred dog breeders that strive to protect their breed and to continue its existence.

Purebred dogs have been created to perform a specific function and each breed has a unique history.


The preservation breeder honors this history by trying to produce the best specimen of the breed and in this sense, "improving it", but also trying to maintain the qualities that make the breed recognizable, able to perform its purpose, and steadfast in appearance and character.


So in improving the breed the goal is the more perfect example, not to change the look, function, or temperament or to create something new or different, but rather to preserve that unique set of qualities that sets the breed apart as a distinct breed of dog.
