Letters from our friends

One of the best things about breeding our girls is getting to know the people who’s homes they go to. We truly appreciate the new friends we have made along the way and enjoy hearing from them and keeping up to date on how their puppies are doing. If you have a story about the puppy you have taken home from us please write, we would love to hear from you.

Text Box: We brought little Ricky home a few short weeks ago.  I believe that due to our 
ability to visit him often and the socialization received by the rest of the litter’s 
owners he is one very social self confident little guy! He instantly bonded with our 
other dogs and is very secure in his surroundings. We can’t imagine our home 
without little Ricky in it!

I would strongly recommend WillowBrook Havanese if you are looking for one of 
these wonderful dogs. I have purchased many purebreds through the years and 
worked with many breeders and I found this one of the most delightful purchase 
experiences to date. I am genuinely impressed with how much Nicole cares for each 
Of her “girls” and all of their offspring!  I also know that I can call on her whenever 
the need arises.

Text Box: Nicole,

Lucy and Maggie are beautiful, sweet and loving dogs.  We are so lucky and 
happy to have them in our family.  They are surprising gentle and just want 
to love you.  They are great with kids and adults alike.  We wish that we had 
discovered this breed long ago. It seems to be the perfect breed for us.  
We have not been disappointed.  

Thank you for keeping in touch and helps us when we have questions. 
We are so thankful to have Lucy and Maggie in our lives.

Text Box: Nicole Rodriguez, of Willowbrook Havanese, has patience, warmth, integrity, 
and passion that was evident every time we visited. We had such a positive 
experience meeting the puppy we would claim as "ours" that we returned two 
hours later and placed a deposit down for him. For the safety of our puppy, 
Nicole recommended we not take him home before he was 8 weeks old.

We were always welcomed in her home to visit the puppies being raised. 
All our questions were always patiently and respectfully answered. 
We would gladly refer anyone interested in happy, well adjusted 
Havanese to visit Willowbrook Havanese. 

Paul was looking for a little buddy companion and Wally more than met 
his expectations.
Text Box: Beauty, Brains and personality. This is what we’ve 
experienced with Nicole Rodriquez and her ladies of 
WillowBrook (Daisy, Tiger Lily & Rosie), and our own sweet 
4-month old Jasper. Nicole’s willingness to share her 
knowledge and answer my continuous questions epitomize 
the ideal attitude a breeder should have toward her pups. 
She wants to keep in touch with the new families.

Thank you Nicole, we couldn’t have asked for a better 
introduction to the Havenese breed.

Text Box: Nicole is a wonderful home breeder that has so much passion and 
patience for a new Havanese owner. I've researched breeders throughout
the NW for about one year and luckily found Nicole. I am very detailed 
and looking for a honest breeder that we clicked with was important; 
Nicole fits that description. 

Upon our 1st correspondence until a year later, she continues to support 
us like family. Bambi is our 1st dog and we are very pleased with her 
personality and demeanor.  We highly recommend Nicole. 

Text Box: Willowbrook Havanese is a responsible breeder whose breedings 
are carefully chosen. I have seen several of Nicole's litters, as she 
asks people to come and socialize her pups. 

Her pups are healthy, with nice, friendly personalities. I chose a 
puppy from her for performance. My 8-month-old pup struts around
the breed ring with pride, and in agility training he has speed and

Text Box: Dear Nicole,
I want to thank you for such a warm and wonderful experience 
in buying  our first Havanese puppy!  We are madly in love with 
Oliver and have  already trained him to sit!  He is such a wonderful
addition to our  family and is great with the kids.  He got an A+ 
check up from the vet  and according to my nephew, is "the 
sweetest puppy in the world"  I  must agree. I appreciate all of 
the information you included in  our goodie bag and how patiently
you answered all of my questions. Thanks for everything!

Text Box: I knew Nicole's reputation, through many Facebook posts.
No matter how many questions I ask, Nicole always responds 
happily.  The love she has for her dogs does not stop when they 
leave Willowbrook.  My husband and I would be lost without our 
adorable, sweet Rosie.  We are so grateful to Nicole for the opportunity 
to give Rosie her forever home!  We highly recommend bringing your 
forever pup home from Willowbrook Havanese!

Text Box: I purchased my Havanese female, Charlie Mae, in March 2013. 
I heard about Nicole and Willowbrook Havanese through my mother, who got 
a male Havanese from her 9 months prior. Everyone was in LOVE with her dog,
 not the least of whom being me! My only fear was that my mom's dog would be 
the exception, not the norm, for Havanese. But our dog Charlie is every bit as 
smart, loving, happy, and playful. We couldn't be happier with our little girl.

Nicole is an outstanding breeder who is great to do business with. 
My family did a lot of research before picking Willowbrook, and it is by far 
the most reputable place to find a Havanese in the greater Seattle area.
