About Us                                               Looking for Guardian Homes - Contact me for more information        

Who We Are

At Once Upon A Havanese, we are focused on providing socialized and healthy pets.  We are a family of 5 (plus additions) that have fallen in love with the Havanese! 

We live in Manteca, California. 

We started with one at a time until almost each of us have our own fluffy.  We love dogs and they bring us much happiness.  We take pride in our well socialized pups.  We homeschool which gives us the opportunity to give our puppies much love and attention.  My kids help with much of the care, they almost always have a fluffy buddy helping with their school work. 

We also do a ministry in our home.  We take in families and individuals that need help.  You can read more information about our Ministry on the GLASS page under "more".

 Look around our website and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us. 

 I have added the contract to home page for easier access       1uponahavanese@gmail.com

Our Dogs:

Violet is a Rosie/Duke baby. 

Guardian homes are for the dog’s benefit to have their own loving family to be spoiled, not that we don’t already spoil our breeding dogs but we would like to be able to have them stay with their family when they retire from their breeding years.  We keep the pick of the litter to continue a beautiful lineage of optimal Havanese genetics, you would get the opportunity to raise and keep a great companion. 

Sage is a dark sable smaller male. 

 He is very affectionate and sweet and a very happy boy.  He is a new addition and is still doing his preliminary OFA's

Jasmine is retiring and is looking for a family to spoil her.  She is not cat friendly but she's very quiet and obedient. 

Jasmine has very beautiful coloring. With a personality that's always happy and ready to go explore she's hard to miss.  She has beautiful sable puppies that start out dark then lighten.  She has had all her OFA tests.

Duke.                                      About 15 lbs.

Duke is retired and happy in his new home with one of his daughters. He is very playful and puppy like. He has a good sturdy, strong build and silky hair.  Duke has been OFA tested. 

Primrose                               12 pounds

She is a true chocolate with hazel eyes.  Primrose has a very calm and observant personality, she almost directs us around with her eyes.  I can tell if she is tattling on someone with just her eyes. Primrose has been OFA tested. Primrose will be retiring this year and will be looking for a family to spoil her.

Radley means "Red Meadow"

Radley is a new addition and everyone is in love with him!  He has the perfect personality: sweet, loving, happy and playful.  He is outgoing and loves everyone.  

Dahlia                                                 10 pounds

Dahlia is a black and white parti.  She is calm until the vitamins come out.  She likes being in any lap that will have her. Dahlia is retiring this year and is looking for a new family to spoil her. 

Iris goes from chocolate to red to tan                      Magnolia is white with Red genes.

and back to chocolate!                                            She weighs 10.5 lbs

She weighs 11 lbs, Iris is a daughter of Rosie.            OFA certified.

Rosie Bear.               About 15 lbs.

Rosie, who answers to a first and last name, is our first chocolate havanese. She is our most favored parent for both color and personality. She likes to sleep upside down and throws her toys for herself. Rosie is now retired from breeding and is the acting nanny.

Bluebonnet                                  7.5 pounds

Blue is small sable.  She likes to think she's mommy's princess, wherever I am she's at my feet or waiting outside the door.  She is a bit silly and "dorks" around for attention.  She is also a talker.

"Blue" has been OFA tested.  Bluebonnet is now retired 

Why Us?

We have a very pure AKC breed and have many options of color and size.  We do not believe in Kennels but instead train and love our pets.  We do an extra parvo shot called NeoPar as well as the 5-way combo before puppies leave our home and all their deworming on schedule.  We also begin puppies on potty training and how to behave while being groomed.  We also give a one year health guarantee.
