Ivy Hills Havanese

I would like to let you have the chance to get to know a little bit about us.  My husband, David and I are raising our family on our Thoroughbred farm in Indiana.  We have been breeding and racing Thoroughbreds since 1995.  

In February 2005, we were watching the Westminster dog show.  A beautiful  little dog caught my husband's eye.  It was a Havanese!  The more we learned about the breed, the more we were drawn to them.  I gathered all the information I could find and then searched for the right breeder.   

Maggie, CH. Simcox's Rising Angel, was our first Havanese.  I decided to show Maggie myself since I had shown horses as a child and loved it.  Maggie and I learned off each other.  She recieved her AKC championship July 22, 2006 owner-handled all the way!

The Havanese Club of America voted me in as a member in August 2007.  It is a great accomplishment to be accepted and says a lot about my breeding program.

I am a volunteer for Havanese Rescue.  I am a co-founder of the Queen City Havanese Club located in Cincinnati, Oh.

I believe in fully health testing the dogs I plan to breed.  I follow the Havanese Club of America's health guideline recommendations.
