Breeders, keepers, importers and lovers of Havanese dogs

About Us

Ellingly Havanese is Tasmania's only breeder of Havanese and we raise them in our loving home. 

In 2010 we were introduced to Havanese through Barad Kennels, and instantly fell in love with this breed and purchased in partnership with Barad Kennels our first dog Carnwath Sah Jahan from Victoria. After a few months of showing Carnwath Shah Jahan (Teddy) we decided to import from Sweden. In 2011 after many months of waiting, Ellingly Havanese is proud to announce the arrival of a brother and sister from Sweden Darkwilles Melichrous Canina (imp SWE) & Darkwilles Macrotous Canino (imp SWE).  In 2012 our Swedish imports were both titled as Australian Champions.  Our Havanese family is continuing to grow and bring much joy to our lives.  We are passionate about continuing the genetic diversity in the breed by importing Havanese from overseas.

Havanese are like ..
you can never just have one!
