Down South Havanese & Bichon Frise

Hi Melissa:
I am attaching the new puppy vet check information you requested for Kyra's health guarantee.  Please email me and let me know if I got it all right and
this is all you need for the guarantee.
I want to let you know how happy we are with Kyra, you called her Emily.  She is a Havanese girl. She traveled home with us like a trooper with no car sickness at all.
She ate well and drank well in the car and we stopped every 2 hours to let her out.  She had no accidents in the car and bonded with us.  She is so well socialized to both people and other dogs.  She follows us around and is a loving girl.  My vet was so impressed with her social skills and loving personality.  She was impressed with her condition.  As a matter of fact she just assumed she would have to trim her nails, and was amazed that they were already done. She felt her health records were very comprehensive and said that I had found a good breeder.  My vet also explained to me why you were so concerned about her traveling in a car.  She indicated many people do not know how to travel with a young dog in a car and the puppy arrives home sick because they would not  eat or drink and people do not know that you may have to stay several hours in a particular spot to make sure they do drink and eat. They then blame the breeder for the sick puppy. She also said that many people take their dogs out at popular spots to potty such as McDonalds and gas stations  and they pick up diseases, and your husband Jeff reminded us of this before we left.  We were very careful where she went and she ate and drank very well. She had an awesome trip home.  So thank you so much for taking such good care of Kyra before she came to her forever home with us. Please feel free to use this endorsement and know that I would purchase another dog from you.

We wanted to let you know that we are totally obsessed and totally in love with our dog. He turned 1 on Wednesday and we wanted to share his picture with you. Thanks so much!

The Campbell family is loving our sweet little baby, Tilly. She is so incredibly spunky, has made friends with our kitty, and is even learning to play fetch already (even though the ball is as big as her)! She is extremely affectionate with a huge personality. Thank you, thank you for raising this sweet pup. She is beautiful and everyone who sees her wants her!

Love always,
The Campbell’s

Just a little update on Beau. He's transitioning into the family beautifully. Leash trained almost instantly. Loves going for walks! He also loves to run after my little boy and play in the yard. Eating like a champ. He's almost sleeping good through the night. We just love him and can't thank you enough! He reminds us so much of our Bichon we lost and while he doesn't replace him, it sure helps! Our house was just not a home without a bichon.

He has slept through the night since he came home and is potty training really well!!! He is such a character 😊😱 we really adore him!!! He is very very loved and we are so thrilled to call him our fur baby!!!!
Thank you again
Renee, Tony and Cosmo !!!!

Hi Melissa,
Wanted you to know how thrilled we are with Molly, our Bichon Frisee.  We got her from you over a year ago and we couldn't be happier with her wonderful personality.  Thank you so much. I've included some pictures so you can see how beautiful she is.
On her first birthday we took her on a boat ride at Lake Arrowhead.  She was perfect. 
Thank you again for bringing us such delight.

Here is a pic for our review and our review to post on the website below:
Thank you so much Melissa and Down South Havanese and Bishon for our new beautiful Havanese baby boy pup who we named Lucky.  That's what we are for getting this little guy.  You were so wonderful throughout the entire process and we got him in perfect condition.  We can't thank you enough and are so excited for the other families who would be so lucky to get an awesome pup from you.

Let me know if you need anything else xo 

We are so delighted with our new babies, Tinker and Belle. They keep us smiling and laughing all the time. We have started potty training and that is going good; we still have a ways to go, but we will get there.
We had our first Vet visit yesterday and we were the center of attraction with our extra cute puppies. They were pronounced healthy, happy and too cute. They got a shot and didn’t cry.
At this point, I am refusing to leave them, husband not so happy as he went to church alone today.  I’ll go next week for sure.
Thanks so much for these especially cute and sweet babies. We are delighted.

Hi there I just wanted to send you a thank you for the puppy we purchased last month, you sent him to las Vegas for us to pick up.   We named him Jax. He is sweet, loving, smart, and adorable.  Sending you a pic of his first haircut, and his brother Stuey.  We couldn't be happier!
Thanks again!

Dear Melissa,

Today is Harvey’s birthday.  He is ten years old today.  Every day I am so grateful for him and he is the absolute love of my life.  I cannot thank you enough for breeding such a quality dog that is so happy and brings so much joy to my life.  I recommend you to someone whenever I hear them talking about getting a puppy.  I search your website and I know I will return again one of these days to get another Havanese, but I know I would never buy one from someone else.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for Happy Harvey.  What a joy you bring to people!




We took Macey to the vet yesterday, and the doctor wanted to keep her.  He said over and over “she’s an awesome pup”.....he was asking about the breeder, and when we told him she came from the same place as Ava and Zoey, he says, “Oh good she came from a good place then.”    We cannot thank you enough for these babies.

Our sweet Gracie graduated from puppy training. She is so smart!  She is so much fun and never meets a stranger. Everyone who meets her just falls in love.

FInally, here is the pictures you asked for of our Havanese "Oliver". We talked when my son bought his Havanese "Milo" (which they renamed Chewy) and you told me you loved Oliver's haircut. I have since learned to groom Oliver myself so  (of course) I cannot make his hair come out the same way anymore (Oh well).  I have also included one photo of "Chewy" so you can remember which one he is..  
Our two families are certainly pleased with both of these dogs.  They are the light of our lives and are fast becoming best friends.  Thank you for doing such a great job starting them out.  We will recommend you to anyone who admires our Havanese!!!
