Barbara B said on July 13th, 2019: I can't say enough wonderful things about Patty and So Cute Havanese. Patty is a loving and caring breeder. Through out our process she answered so many of my questions. She sent pictures and videos of the puppies to keep us updated on their progress. Even after Chip has been home 9 months, she continues to answer my questions. I liked Patty's philosophy on the holistic approach to raising puppies, from vaccines to raw food, she is a wealth of knowledge. She truely cares for all her adopted fur babies. Everyone who meets Chip, loves and adores him. He is a blessing to our family. Thank you Patty for all you did in preparing him for our home.
Rose and Reynaldo said on July 7th, 2018: We were looking for a small breed dog and we came across the Havanese so we looked for someone in Wisconsin & found Patty & So Cute. We could not be more happy with our Rocco!! His personality is so unique; dramatic is the word of choice. He loves people and is extremely smart, curious, and confident. We would recommend So Cute to anyone looking for a Havanese because Patty & family truly love & care for all the puppies.
Edna said on July 3rd, 2018:
I cant say enough about how wonderful our dogs are. I have a 4 year old from Patty, I have never had such a wonderful,loving, full of personality dog in my life. We swear he is half human. Patty is always there if I have had any questions. You can tell she truly cares for her dogs and new puppies. We love our Dexter so much. My daughter decided to buy a puppy from Patty. Gryff is 5 months old he is such a great addition to our family. Dexter and Gryff are the best of friends. My Vet even made the comment 'wow, The breeder really did a nice job with socializing them and giving them a great start'! Thank you patty for the best dogs we ever had!!
Wendy A said on July 3rd, 2018: I got my first Havanese just two weeks ago. I have had many dogs, but never a small one. Patty has given the pups and her other dogs great care, love and attention. She answers all my questions (many of them) and does it promptly. Her home is full clean and organized. We are loving our little Lucky Louella ("Lucky" for short) and she even sleeps through the night!!!
Mary Sue said on July 2nd, 2018: Our Mina was one of Patty Jicha's dogs. She is a charmer as well as adorable. We so enjoyed the photos and videos of her while we waited to bring her home. Now, as charming as Mina is she is also "Miss Bossy" with her three Havanese brothers. Patty is a great breeder and our experience with her was wonderful.
Diane T said on July 2nd, 2018: Got my puppy from So Cute Havanese last fall. Patty is a very caring and knowledgeable breeder, who is always willing to help with any questions and share advice on many topics. She is not your typical breeder, in that she truly cares about each and every puppy, and likes to follow them as they grow. I would highly recommended her.
Judy T said on July 2nd, 2018: We adopted two wonderful pups from So Cute and had a wonderful experience both times. Patty was wonderful to work with and provided us all the information we needed for our new puppies. Our first Harper is now a little over a year and a half and is the sweetest little princess ever. Our second, JJ is a pure delight. He is almost nine months old and has brought not only us loads of joy, but is a wonderful playmate for Harper. We are very pleased with our wonderful fur babies.
Saralee and Michael T said on July 2nd, 2018: We love our So Cute Havanese Companion-Stella!! Patty and her two and four-legged family are fantastic, and we couldn’t be happier with Stella (who will be 2 in September). She is loving, sweet, and clever. She is wonderful with all creatures great and small. When the time is right, we will definitely look to So Cute Havanese for another family member.
Lyn S said on July 2nd, 2018: I did not get my Havanese from SoCuteHanvanese but I wish I had! My breeder has wonderful puppies, don't get me wrong, and I love my Havanese, Javier, to the moon and back, but my breeder has never ONCE followed up on Javier and how he is doing nor do they seem to care about staying in contact with their pup owners. They do not educate on holistic methods like vax options, raw diet, or things like using essential oils. I have had no communication with them at all since I got Javier. Who raises beautiful puppies and then after they go to their forever homes never communicates with you? So sad. Patty Jicha is just the opposite. She truly cares where her puppies go and wants to know how they are doing and wants to teach you best practices to keep them healthy and striving. She wants you to stay in touch. That is the kind of breeder you want to get your Havanese from!! SoCute is the best!!
Lorin R said on August 16,2017: We adore our Havanese from Patty! Mackintosh, Mack, or Mackie has been such an awesome addition to our family! He is great with everyone- he loves to meet new people and new people love to pet his belly. He is smart and does tricks and loves his momma! We travel with him quite a bit and he even goes paddle boarding with mom! I adore my furry son! We love him so much, Patty! He is so cute!!!
Lisa said on April 9th, 2017: We just love Patty and So Cute Havanese! Tucker will be 2 years old in July. He has so much personality and spunk and has added so much joy to our lives. Patty is a wonderful breeder. So has so much love for all the puppies that she raises and wants to make sure that when they leave with their new families that they are ready for the transition to their new homes and lives. With so many beautiful puppies it was hard to pick one from the litter, but Patty even helped to guide us to select the puppy that was right for us when we were torn on which puppy to choose! We were new dog owners and had lots of questions and Patty gave us wonderful advice and was very patient. We love that she has a holistic approach and her Facebook posts are very helpful and give great tips on care for Havanese. We feel we have a connection with Patty for the lifetime of our dog and that is truly a big testament to the wonderful love and concern that Patty has for all her Havanese
Kelly J. said: March 21, 2017: We adopted Findlay in 2015 and it's hard to believe two years has passed already. It seems as if he's always been a part of the family! He's healthy, active, mischievous, cuddly, friendly, outgoing, and a joy to have in our lives. Everyone he meets falls in love with him and he eats up the attention. Working with Patty and So Cute was a great experience and we'd recommend her to anyone considering a Havanese or a small breed in general. It was great adopting from someone we knew cared about the puppies and their puppy parents, and adopting Findlay from So Cute was one of the best decisions we've ever made!
Edna said: November 29, 2016: My Havanese Dexter is 2 now. I have never in my whole life of having dogs have been happier with a breed. He potty trained so well. My dogs from the past always had accidents.. not my Dexter. He is loving and he has a personality that is so fun. All my guests fall in love with him. So great with kids and loves playing with other dogs. My Vet.even told me he could tell Patty really knows how to socialize her pups and Havanese is his favorite small breed. My family is very thankful we found Patty and my wonderful Dexter.
Carissa said: November 27, 2016: We have the most beautiful Havanese that could not have a better temperament. Patty was amazing to work with and gave these puppies so much love. She was so kind to our family and was in constant communication through the process. There is truly no one better to get a Havanese from! We love our Lizzie Bear so much and If we ever decide to get a 2nd we would go back to Patty!
Phil, Rosemary & Zeke said: October 11th, 2016 1:15 pm To all future families out there looking for the perfect Puppy & Breeder. Look no further! Patty Jicha @ "So Cute Havanese" is the answer to your prayers. From the first phone call to Patty, we could hear the dedication to her puppies and the concern that they be placed into the best homes possible. It was great to visit her families home, and see the fresh, clean and organized heart of her home, which is her puppies and dogs area. Patty and her family work VERY HARD to socialize, teach and love the puppies so they are the best they can be. She also goes the extra mile to make sure that the new owners get the perfect puppy their looking for. Patty is full of information and is dedicated to the holistic way of raising the puppies. She is always willing to help with all the questions and concerns you might have. We loved all the great pictures and updates with our puppy's progress. Our puppy Zeke is so sweet and loves people and other dogs. Potty training has been a breeze. Not everyone knows what the breed Havanese is, but after they meet our Zeke everyone wants one. Zeke is a great ambassador for So Cute Havanese and the Havanese breed. Thanks again Patty, for all your hard work! People are Unaware of all the work behind the scenes that you do.
Julie said: June 22nd, 2016 8:09 pm After researching several Havanese breeders, we selected Patty for a number of reasons. First, Patty spent time up front discussing our goals for adopting a puppy to our family. Second, Patty is an involved breeder. She asked great questions, invited us to her home, and sent photos and videos of the puppies. The best part of our experience was the adoption process. From picking up our puppy to integration into our home, the process has been seamless. We have not had any issues. We have learned so much from Patty and are happy owners of the best puppy we could have ever asked for. Thank you!
Cecilia said: April 26th, 2016 3:21 pm
We adopted Che in February. He is the most loving and playful puppy! He is crazy about people and is very smart. Training has been going great since the puppy bonded very quickly and wants to please you in every way. We are so happy to have him in our lives! The adoption process was very smooth. Patty does a great job in every step, keeping you posted before you pick your dog up and sending you important information for you to be prepared for your puppy's arrival. She took care of Che again when we have to leave for a weekend out of town and he was so happy to be in such a caring and fun environment. Thank you Patty for everything!
Brian & Sarah said: April 25th, 2016 2:25 pm
We brought our puppy, Piper, home two weeks ago and I cannot believe what a great experience it has been so far! From the first night home Piper has been sleeping in her pen/crate through the night without crying and without an accident! We were dreading the first nights/weeks at home, but she has been amazing and we are so lucky to have a puppy that can sleep through the night from day one. We have three young boys (ages 6, 8 and 11) at home and Piper is so tolerant of them – they pick her up and snuggle her and toss balls for her and hug her… she just allows it all with a wagging tail. She is so friendly and loving and it goes to show how well she was cared for and loved at Patty’s! It has been only two weeks but already it feels like Piper was always part of our family. We are so very lucky to have found Patty and her Havanese.
James & Ann said: November 10th, 2015 4:00 pm
We brought home our puppy, Ruby, last June and have been so happy with her right from the start. Right from the start, Ruby has shown us how sociable, how trainable, and how affectionate the breed is! She was clearly well-loved and cared for by Patty and her family, and now that my wife and I are talking with the kids about whether or not we want to add another puppy to the family sometime next summer, we know exactly who we are going to talk to if or when (let's face it, it's "when") we decide to adopt another Havi pup. Thanks so much for making this happen and for making process so easy for us!
Leah said: October 26th, 2015 11:20 pm
We had such a wonderful experience with Patty! Because I am very allergic to most dogs, she allowed me to do a trial visit to spend an hour with her dogs to see if it would be okay before I brought my daughter out. My daughter has wanted a dog for her whole life! Once we decided to adopt a puppy from Patty, Patty sent my daughter regular updates and pictures (which always made her day). When we brought our puppy home, it went better than we could have expected. He was already crate trained and paper trained--he has always slept through the night without trouble. My friends who have had puppies who warned me about how hard it was going to be can't believe it! He is also already very well-socialized. It is clear that he was so well-loved and cared for before he joined our family. We are thrilled and so grateful.
Rosemary said: August 18th, 2015 3:37 pm
Thank you so much for bringing little Suzy sunshine into my life. She's just a bundle of joy that loves to play with my little grandson in our yard and makes everyone she meets happy. She is very energetic and likes to go down to take naps every now and then. Even though she is sometimes sassy she makes up for it with plenty of kisses. She is already potty trained and crate-trained thanks to you! Once again thanks very much for doing so well at what you do and for the continuous help you still give me.
Dori said: July 9th, 2015 7:51 pm
Dear Patty, I have so enjoyed reading your Guest Book. My husband and I are VERY interested in having a Havanese join our home. We have three Cavalier King Charles (that are crate-trained). Absolutely love having dogs around me 24/7. We can't get a puppy until the end of September or beginning of October, as we will be out of town quite a bit in Sept. and don't want to get a puppy and then leave the house. We live in Elm Grove WI, have a fenced in yard and walk them every day. Could you please let us know if this would work for you or when you would have availability. We are very anxious to hear from you. Thank you so much, Dori
Kristy G said: June 30th, 2015 7:43 pm
We can't express what a joy our Lucky has been to our family. He is beloved by all, with the most loving, fun and companionable personality. Can't imagine our lives without him now. We highly recommend Patty and her puppies!
Judy E said: March 22nd, 2015 4:12 pm
My daughter and I stopped by Patty's home to visit and see her Havi's before making a deposit on a future puppy. We were so happy to see how social they were even though they have several doggy friends. I cannot wait to be a parent to one of her puppies. I am so excited. I was a pleasure to visit with you at your home. Thank you.
Nina said: January 5th, 2015 7:30 pm
November 2014 Kevin came home... At the end of July, our beloved 6 year old Havanese, (not one from Patty) Marco was diagnosed with Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). With a huge hole in our hearts, we knew that Marco would want us to share all the love we gave him with another.....that's when Patty of So Cute Havanese entered our lives.I filled out the form, and was impressed that she immediately responded. We spoke on the phone. She was understanding and full of compassion. We decided to take a drive for a visit to see where our potential new baby would be coming from. The minute we entered we knew without a doubt that these dogs were loved and well taken care of and that every member of the family was an integral part of their lives, without hesitation we put our deposit down, and were put on the wait list. Over the course of time, I was questioning/researching what caused Marco's IMHA and read and read about vaccines. You see, I, like most of you reading this thought I was doing the right thing, taking my dog to the vet for his regular shots, applying the frontline so he didn't get fleas/ticks, giving him the heart worm pill monthly. Little did I know that I may have aided in his passing by doing the "right thing" by loading his small body up with toxins. So, after months of reading and discussions, my husband and I have decided that Kevin will not be vaccinated and will be fed a raw diet. Before you judge, read up on it, when you do you'll see that it makes complete sense. We all have choices, WE are choosing to raise Kevin as naturally as possible because we believe that it is what will keep him healthiest and live a long life with us. Patty is a wealth of knowledge and has firsthand experience raising her puppies this way. I believe our paths have crossed for a reason and that reason was Kevin. Many, many thanks to Patty who pours her heart, soul & love into making sure our new fur babies get the best start in life, the rest is up to us.

Everyone who meets our Coco calls her the "happy dog". She is cheerful, fun, spirited, loving, and easy to live with. When we got her at 9 weeks she happily went into her crate (Patty crate-trains) and to this day she loves to go into her crate (or any other, for that matter). She slept through that first night, and every night since, without so much as a whimper (Patty's crate-training methods are effective!). She has never had an accident in her crate (Patty says this is one benefit of the crate-training). Coco plays with her big dog "cousin", her medium dog "cousin" and dog friends, as well as with us, with our grandchildren, or by herself. (Patty's puppies are socialized to be with their dog family and their human family from their birth, and the loving care they receive from Patty and her children is evident in their winning confident personality). Coco quickly learned no - no bark, no jump (Patty showed us how to discipline effectively without being harsh). (And Coco has learned how to communicate - I don't know who taught her that! But Patty "listens" to the needs and wants of her dogs). That Patty enjoys each of her dogs and puppies is quite evident. We have loved all of Patty's help, her instructional booklet, and tips on the care of her puppies. But most of all we have cherished the rich and special beginning she gives to each of her puppies, going the extra mile to ensure success in a puppy's moving into his/her family. If you get one of Patty's pups, you are indeed fortunate.
Eileen Morang said: October 9th, 2014 6:17 pm
What can I say that will do Patty justice! She is an amazing breeder, who truly cares about all her puppies and only wants the best for them. While I had a dog in the past this was my first puppy, and Patty really walked me through everything! I was truly set up for success! In fact I still run important questions past her as she has a wealth of knowledge. Her puppies are perfect, healthy and they come with such great personalities! I got Hudson from Patty in February of 2014 for a few months we lived in downtown Chicago, and Hudson adapted to the city like a champ. In September we moved to Phoenix and have been living in a hotel until our house closes. I was a little worried about this transition and was prepared for the worst (regression of potty habits etc) but he is doing so well! He makes friends with all the hotel guests and everyone comments on how happy he is. I couldn't ask for a better puppy! thank you Patty!!
Kayla Delaney said: July 17th, 2014 6:48 pm
Patty was so easy to work with from start to finish. My boyfriend and I were looking to get a small, hypoallergenic puppy and she helped answer all of our questions when we were still looking at a few different breeds. After seeing how well cared for all of the dogs in her home are and learning more about the breed, it was a very easy decision. We've had Maverick home for almost a week now and can't even remember what it was like without him here! :) Patty and her family did an awesome job taking care of him before we were finally able to bring him home! Thank you for being so thorough and guiding us through this whole process!
Cyndy Watson said: June 9th, 2014 1:51 pm
Got my Little LuLu on April 9th 2014. So much fun and so cute. Patty is the best. I have never in my life met such a wonderful caring person. She is the best breeder ever!! Cyndy Watson
Kris Schick said: May 24th, 2014 12:22 am
I should have signed the guest book sooner, but still wanted to say...What a great place to get a puppy. Patty gives so much care, love and attention to the dogs and puppies. We just love our dogs we got from her and hope to bring them for a visit. Thanks for all you do, Patty!!!!!

Donna Keizer said: December 26th, 2013 6:41 am
We are so pleased with our entire experience, starting with our initial visit to Patty's home, through having our little boy Archer join our family on December 14th. The thoughtful care and love that Patty and her family bestow upon these puppies is remarkable. Archer has had zero issues adjusting to his new environment. We are thrilled, to say the least! Thank you Patty!
Carol said: December 3rd, 2013 1:43 pm
It's so nice to know that there's a loving, caring reputable Havanese family nearby! Our 10 1/2 year old sweetheart came from far away. Love your website!

I am looking forward to adopting a new little girl as soon as possible! After losing our dear Chloe this past summer, we are ready to have a new baby in the house!
Barb Harvey said: September 11th, 2013 3:37 pm
I can't begin to thank Patty enough for giving our 8 week old Havanese ,Izzy, such a spectacular start to her life. She has been with us for a few days and hasn't had any accidents. She has slept through the night in her kennel without a peep from day one. She even listens to the command "leave" surprising well. The communication with Patty has been awesome. I learned so much about her process and how and why she does what she does. I even mentioned I would like to groom my puppy myself so she gave me a little lesson and helpful tips. She has gone above and beyond my expectations. I feel like I have made a friend and I know she will always be there for me and Izzy if I have any questions or concerns. It is so obvious this is such a passion for Patty. I don't usually write on websites but I feel it is so important for people looking for a Havanese to work with Patty. They will not be disappointed.
Krysta Winters Nugent said: September 11th, 2013 12:34 pm
We just picked up our 8 week old puppy from Patty, and couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Having pictures prior to picking her up kept us in the loop of her growth, and it was wonderful to be able to visit before our puppy was old enough to come home. We were amazed to discover that from day one our puppy is already basically potty-trained and able to sleep through the night with no crying and no accidents! She is a well-adjusted puppy, and people are amazed at her temperament and adorableness! We definitely recommend Patty!
Pat Isaac said: September 11th, 2013 9:55 am
My husband Jeff and I bought our little havanese girl in February. She was only 9 days old. We had to wait two long months to bring our Starr home. Patty was so nice and invited us to visit her and we sure did. It was so much fun to visit her and see her brothers and sisters and all the Havanese in the house. What a great place for a puppy to start out life. The dogs were all a part of the family. After losing our 147 year old dog the thought of starting with all the puppy training was going to be a challenge. We are so excited to bring her home and very much surprised that this little puppy was kennel trained and paper trained. She fit in perfect. We got to have all the fun without all the work. She went potty outside right away and honestly was totally trained by 5 months. Even before had just a few accidents in the house and all of those were people faults not doggie faults. She is such a character...She is always entertaining. She loves to jump in our bushes and flowers. She makes everyday something new for us. She is sweet and loving. I think the start she had at your house Patty, made her life star perfect. I love my havanese Starr. The havanese breed is wonderful but Patty you have raised her right from day one with love and teaching. I also love that I can call you and I do when I have any questions. I love that ours is a relations ship that will continue. Thanks for giving Starr such a wonderful start. Pat

I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO ADOPTING A LITTLE GIRL. AFTER TALKING TO PATTY, I FEEL I HAVE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION ON THIS BREEDER. i ALREADY OWN 1 HAVANESE & WANT TO GIVE MY LITTLE BOY A PLAYMATE & COMPANION.
Bobbie Siewert said: March 27th, 2013 3:28 pm
I had been in contact with a couple of other breeders before I found SOCUTEHAVANESE. What a blessing this has been! Not only have a found a perfect , healthy loving puppy, but I have all the support I need for raising my very first dog. Patty has supplied me with dozens of adorable pictures while my puppy was growing up enough to be with me. It gave me a sense of belonging to my puppy before she came to her forever home. Patty has given me so many helpful tips I could not have learned just reading books.
Suzy Zahorik said: February 25th, 2013 9:30 pm We made Teeko part of our family about a month ago. Great puppy and already so well trained literally had NO new puppy headaches! Only the fun Then when we left town for several days Patty and family were able to "board" Teeko. He was so happy to come back to his old home and visit with Patty's great family and pets. He was well loved and cared for and very happy when we picked him up again. I recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a new Havanese puppy!
Shelly Gardner said: February 16th, 2013 11:48 am
If you are looking for the perfect breeder for a Havanese, look no further! Patty and her family do a wonderful job in raising their dogs and their puppies... We adopted Zara in early January and we are already adding another one of Patty's puppies to our family! Patty does a wonderful job emailing updates photos and information about your puppy from the time it is born until you pick up your pup to bring them home! Thanks for all that you do, Patty!!!!
Teresa, Jim, Adam, Ryan and Andrew said: January 3rd, 2013 8:41 am
We have found the perfect Havanese puppy! We adopted "Seymour" from your litter born 2/16/12. Seymour is the chocolate puppy at the top of this page. We love him! Seymour is almost 11 months old now and doing very well. Since the day he was born we followed his growth via telephone, website and visits. He is sweet, well behaved and very loving, It only took a couple of days to be fully house trained thanks to all the work you and your family invested in his training. The vet says he is very healthy and of very good breeding. Thank you very much for the wonderful start in life you and your family gave to Seymour.
Ken and Carole (Minnie's mom and dad) said: December 28th, 2012 4:30 pm
We were looking for a havanese puppy and found ourselves very fortunate to find patty's website. After talking to Patty, we knew this was the breeder we wanted to do business with. Patty and her family are very caring people and love their dogs. We were so impressed with Patty that we bought our little girl before she was even born. We have never had occasion to regret that decision. Our Minnie is a healthy, happy little girl. From the time she was born until we picked her up, Patty kept us well informed with daily e-mails, phone calls and over 100 photos. We have had no hesitation recommending Patty. As a matter of fact, the groomer who gave Minnie her first hair cut was so taken with her that she bought a puppy of her own.
Wendy Lee said: November 4th, 2012 8:49 pm
What a wonderful experience! In September my husband and I adopted our little boy, Harvey from Patty. We selected our puppy when he was 1 day old and during the next 8 weeks Patty kept us updated on his progress and weekly sent us beautiful pictures of Harvey. Harvey was well on the way to being potty trained when be brought him home, loved his crate and by the 3rd night was sleeping through the night. We are thrilled with our puppy and when it's time to add a second Havanese to our family it will be from Patty.
Nancy said: November 1st, 2012 11:35 am
Every puppy born into this breeder's home gets individual detailed attention beginning with the time of birth and as long as she has them. It was a joy to see how happy they play and how clean and cared for they and the adult dogs are.
Carol said: October 22nd, 2012 5:13 pm
After having been a former "show breeder" of Bichon Frise for years, but now just a happy pet owner of a fun Havanese, I can attest that no one loves or treats their babies better than Patty and her wonderful family. Their house is clean and orderly and all of her dogs are part of her big loving family. I would recommend her in an instant!
