I have been a professional breeder of 22 years now. I grew up with dogs in my life and have always had a best friend in them. One of my family's first dogs was a black Cockapoo named "Curly". I wasn't old enough to remember him but to this day he was known for one of the smartest dogs my grandfather and grandmother ever owned. Growing up my mom raised a few litters and became know for her Cocker Spaniels and Dobermans in our area.
Mother also went to college to become a professional
dog trainer so I have learned a lot from her over
the years. Thanks Mom! Little did I know that I
would be doing this as a life passion. I had 2
children and wanted to be home with them and
working part time at our local Head Start I
thought... hey why not just do something I love
and enjoy..."The Dogs". So here I am
providing families and children with the love, loyalty
and companionship I experienced growing up
as a child and even still to this day where it has now
become a dedication and love for the Havanese breed.
I have an AAS degree in Agribusiness. Each and
every adult and puppy gets individual love and
attention from me on a daily basis. Everyone is kept
current on vaccinations and monthly de-worming
preventatives. I study bloodlines sometimes for hours
at a time and go over pedigrees constantly. My
motto is "you can't have healthy puppies if you don't
have healthy parents".
I have a wonderful husband that is always willing
to help me with all the hard labor and extra's in our
kennel/home areas, along with always willing to say "yes" to a new dog I just have to have! :) We have 2 older boys that help out when needed with some basic chores with the dogs now and then, also my two younger babies ages 6 and 4 that love helping with socialization and playtime. I have a great sister who is a professional dog groomer who has taught me a lot about how to groom. She has her own grooming shop in our little town. And of course a wonderful mother & father-in-law who has always been here for us, helps us out with odds and ins around our home and doggie chores, and they have always supported our decisions.
Above all we thank and give all credit to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his love and guidance in helping us to have the life we have today and the families He sends our way!
We hold a Missouri State Hobby/Show Registration. I am and can be inspected by them or AKC at anytime. My vet has also been to my home to see the dogs and where they live giving each individual parent a hands-on checkup. Our dogs are bred for health and temperament first, health testing is done to insure continued health in our lines. We abide by all of our strict state laws here in Missouri. Our state is one of the most regulated and supported dog breeding states in the US. Our laws for breeding are pretty well equivalent to your daycare and nursing home rules and regulations. So rest assure you are getting a great, healthy puppy. We enjoy spending time with our dogs and in doing so we choose to show a little in confirmation Dog Shows. Every year I attain continuing education units by traveling and listening to speakers of all kinds to better educate myself as a breeder and keep up with any new changes and new research. I do not have a backyard breeder attitude to just raise puppies for fun but I consider myself to have a serious professional breeder attitude to raise the best. There is a difference, know what is the important aspects of a real breeder. What's in a name: We have had a couple of names over the years to be known for that I really like and meant something to us but the best one yet is the one we have tagged our Havanese with- "Titanium". Why Titanium? Me and my husband have always done everything together from finances, purchases, decisions to serving the Lord. We met when I was 16 and he was 19, we married 2 years later in 1999 and from that point forward we were ONE. I wanted a name that we both shared and then thought about combining our names Tim/Tina. What word can I use that uses all the letters of both our names. I started to scribble. I kept seeing Titanium and thought well lets see. It uses all the letters except the u, hmm. I sat and thought for a bit. Then it came to me, it was a match and perfect! Titanium is a strong element, bond forming, and what do we need to become "u"-nited, strong, form an unbreakable bond, whole...
U oh mighty Lord. We want to breed a healthy, outstanding, strong line of Havanese, united and guided by God. All in His glory! So this name will fit our breed perfectly. And that is why we are Titanium.
