I highly recommend Royal Flush Havanese! We got our first Havanese, Sadie, from Royal Flush 14 years ago. Winston & Bentley joined our family 7 years ago. And now we just brought home our sweet little Gracie. All of the dogs have been healthy and happy and wonderful members of our family!
Holly and the team at Royal Flush Havanese are great to work with. The process to purchase your pet is quick and easy. They provide ALL the information you need to train and care for your pup, including Vet visits, feeding, vitamins, crate training, what to expect with a new puppy, etc. When I have emailed with questions, they respond in minutes.
I definitely recommend Royal Flush Havanese. You will love your experience and your new puppy.
This was our first time working with a breeder and owning a pup so we did a ton of research and came across Royal Flush. From the beginning to the end, the RFH team was great to work with and answered all of our questions to was our minds! We pick up Tayto back in January and taking him home has been one of the best decisions! Thank you to the team! We’re so happy with our little guy!
We are so impressed by the quality of the puppies and the care provided by Royal Flush Havanese. Our puppy, Sasha, is so sweet and extremely smart, along with being an absolute showstopper. We are very thankful for all the educational material provided by Royal Flush and the pledge to help us with any questions for the life of the dog.
I am not one to typically write poor reviews, however, after going through the experience we’ve had with our dog from Royal Flush, I felt I owed to all future dog owners to give a warning. My family had been looking forward to getting a dog of our own for years – our only criteria was that we wanted a well tempered animal who would be a good family companion. While initially working with the Royal Flush team I felt full confidence in not only their dogs but their assurance that they could provide me with one of their most well tempered pups. Well this has NOT been the case. I’m an animal person and come from a background of owning dogs and working with all sorts of other animals. As much as I love our dog dearly our little Royal Flush Havanese has been possibly the worst animal I’ve ever had. The aggression start early, small things that I marked as red flags and brought to the trainer for questioning. This was followed by growling for no apparent reason, I couldn’t even pet my dog without him randomly growling and gritting his teeth. I at this point reached out to Royal Flush as I was beginning to develop real concerns. They came back with vague pre-generated responses that showed little to no thought for care about my situation. Over the past 4 or 5 months since then I have begun driving over an hour every week to see a specialized trainer, spending thousands of dollars attempting to train my dog out of this aggressive behavior. At the end of the day he is a great dog but he is a risk. We have had to consider getting rid of him as we cannot have a biting threat when we start having babies in the house. What we wanted was a family companion but what we got was a heart breaking nightmare. I’m not trying to blame Royal Flush, as I know there’s always a risk with animals and you can never be fully sure of behavior. However, I can be, and am, extremely disappointed in the lack of care they have had for the situation. It has put me and my family in an awful position and cost us thousands and thousands of dollars, and I truly hope no one else will be put into this same situation.
I work at an animal shelter in RI. We have gotten several dogs surrendered to us that were produced by this breeder, and they refuse to take them back. The cornerstone of any ETHICAL breeding process is to have a plan for when the home placement does not work out. Stop supporting unethical breeders that put such a burden on local animal welfare efforts. If you want one of these dogs, you need only look at the animal shelters around the state, as that is where many of them end up.

This is an issue that needs to be addressed. My family bought our first puppy from Royal Flush when I was about 10 years old. I am 19 and what happened to our dog is still hard for me to comprehend. When we bought our sweet dog Seve, we were ecstatic. He was my first dog and the bond he and I had was arguably closer than any other member of my family. In late November of 2014, we began to notice that Seve was not eating as much. He began losing weight rapidly. By Christmas, he was down to 11 pounds from a previous 16. For such a small dog this is an incredibly abnormal amount of weight to lose. We brought him to the vet to have blood work done and they told us that it was likely a tick-born illness that could be treated with medicine. Unfortunately Seve continued to get sick. He stopped eating all together and had to be tube fed. Come mid January we discovered that his kidneys were failing. We tried surgery but to no avail. I will never forget coming home from 6th grade on January 23rd, 2015 eager to see my beloved dog, only for my mother to tearfully tell me that he had passed away earlier that day. He was three years old. His inability to fight off what was likely a common tick-born illness is a common sign of irresponsible breeding. A few months later we bought another havanese from a breeder who produces AT MOST two litters per year. When we explained what had happened to our previous dog, she informed us of Royal Flush’s notorious reputation for being a puppy mill. In order to produce more puppies, they likely inbreed within and between litters. Weakened immune systems and organs are a common result of improper breeding such as this. I am writing this now because I never want another person to have to go through what my family and I went through because of irresponsible breeding procedures. Please, do your research, because Seve was not the first, and if Royal Flush is not shut down, he certainly will not be the last.
