El Rey Beginnings

CH Selah Princess Samantha Joy - Sammi

Sammi was our first Havanese and our first love.  She, and her mama Molly, made us fall in love with the breed. She was not purchased as a breeding dog, but rather as a companion. She fulfilled her role perfectly and was Maishelle's constant companion.  She was absolutely everything we ever wanted. She was a perfect princess.  Sammi intentionally never had babies, however, Sammi did make us very proud in winning some wonderful show wins including Best in Show and earning her Championship.  She was a real sweet, sassy and special girl.  We love her dearly and will miss her always.  She lives in our heart and each new generation brings us just a piece and memory of her.  She will never be forgotten. Our passion and love for the Havanese all began with Sammi, she is the very reason we decided to begin getting into showing and breeding and she is the very reason we continue.  Each and every new generation is brought forth with lovedand dedicated to our precious Princess Samantha Joy, who brought so much love and life into our home.

We are thankful that by adding Nabila to our breeding program, we actually have added a bit of Sammi's pedigree.  Nabila's Great Grandma is a half sister to Sammi's mom. It pleases us greatly to keep a bit of our Sammi in our breeding program.  We love and miss her dearly.

CH Selah Shoot Em Up at El Rey - Ruger

Ruger was our first breeding dog.  Needless to say he is a very special boy! He got us started in the breed ring and was such as sweet and happy boy to show.  He has a lovely temperament, beautiful silky black coat, gorgeous structure and is a lovely representation of the Havanese.  We adore him and his babies and grandbabies.  He is Alli's special boy and goes with her everywhere. 


Remi was our second Havanese.  We had so much fun showing Sammi in the companion classes that we decided to add another to our family.  Since Sammi was Maishelle's special girl, we got Remi to be Allison's boy and he adores her like crazy.
