Premiere H a v a n e s e


Who are we?  Carol and Roy Croop established Premiere Havanese in October 2000 with the birth of our first Havanese, Primo.  Our dogs are not kenneled but live with us in our home in Atlanta’s Buckhead community.  We have only three dogs in our home, but we do co-own other Havanese that live with family and friends. We are active members of the Havanese Club of America, Havanese Rescue, Inc, and the Southern Magnolia Havanese Club serving Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.

We do not breed often, but we occasionally have puppies available from fully health-tested, AKC Champion-titled sires and dams.

Our philosophy is simple:  Protect and improve this wonderful breed.  How?  We health-test our breeding stock, we compete in AKC shows to ascertain the quality of our dogs, and we participate in rescue and breed clubs to raise awareness and address issues affecting our breed.  Every puppy buyer has the right to expect this of their Havanese breeder, whether they are purchasing their puppy for pet or for show.

Our Premiere Havanese puppies come with a lifetime, money-back health guarantee and a lifetime return policy. Why? Shelters are full of dogs that have been abandoned by their owners and breeders.  We pledge that we will remain responsible forever for the Havanese puppies we produce.
