Agate Bay Havanese is committed to offering happy, healthy puppies to forever homes. We raise our puppies with the dam in our home, beginning socialization the day they are born.
If you're finding us now, you may join our Mailing List for updates on upcoming litters.
Four boys and two girls born April 29th
will be available in mid-July.
Our brown chocolate stud comes
from championship lines.
He is available to select mates.
Our sweet little dogs are long-haired (6-8 inches) and hypoallergenic. They are small, usually between 8-15 pounds. They are eager to learn, and enjoy tricks, fetch, tug-of-war and walks. Unlike some dogs, the Havanese do not require an excessive amount of exercise. They are great with children, and with other pets.
If you're unfamiliar with Havanese dogs, please read more here. Havanese' colors often change over the course of the dog's life. Read more about standard and chocolate Havanese.
"The average dog is a nicer person than the average person."
If you want a dog to warm your feet on the couch or in bed, and to follow you everywhere, a Havanese puppy is a great choice! They like to perch on the back of a couch or in a window, near you. They do bark when strangers approach, or when a car pulls into the driveway, but they are not "yappers."
If you've been searching for a Havanese, please read about our training methods (below), see our policies and prices page, then check out the sweet babies on our puppy page. The final step is to fill out the Application to become one of our new puppy parents. Then you can provide new Havanese photos for our puppy gallery!

I had a female Havanese that I lost ThxGiving Day 2019 Love of my life ... named Hennessy (named after a liquor cause she was one)
THEN I met "Mr Cognac" Life hasn't been the same since !!!
Thank you Laurel (and your Mom)
Laurel and her mother were very
welcoming when I first came to look at puppies. They were all such dolls. I chose the Brown one and named him Mocha. Mocha and I bonded on the way home as I held him, I don't think I have ever bonded with a puppy that fast. He came to me knowing his name and sits right in front of me when I call him.
I think that Laurel did a great job with the first little bit of training. These dogs are very smart and loving dogs. I am so glad I found Laurel's ad.
YOUNG and SKYE and Pi
We had a great experience with Laurel and her mom when we were getting Pi from them last summer. They really loved their puppies and cared about them which is important. They allowed Pi to spend enough time with his mom for bonding and proper nutrition. Pi is very smart, friendly and has a great personal character, and therefore he is truly a family dog! We were allowed to see Pi a couple of times before we brought him home, which I thought was very nice. Laurel also gave us a very nice gift bag, which contained some goodies for Pi. We were very lucky to find Laurel and her mom, and now we're very happy with Pi!
LAURA and JOHN and Otis
We came home with goodies for the puppy, including a pillow filled with his momma's fur. Really lovely touch.
