  BluHaven is a small, home based kennel in Southern Louisiana.
 The name BluHaven came from our foundation dogs, 
which are blue brindle & blue fawn in color. I've owned and loved APBT's for 26 years.
 I also have over 10 years experience in the Veterinarian field, which helps me ensure the best quality
 of health for my dogs. I started showing conformation and weight pulling in 2005, I also train 
my dogs in dock diving, protection, tracking and they excel in lure coursing trials.
With their awesome temperaments, several of my pups became National Top Ten Junior handler dogs.
Our kennels and dog showing are not a business, but one of our many hobbies.
BluHaven will stay TRUE to owning and producing UKC Registered dogs and follow the UKC breed standard. 
We promote and represent our breed in a positive manner.
 BluHaven will never be about Quantity, just Quality!  We will not breed often, but when we do;
first and foremost, I will breed to produce HEALTHY, LOYAL & LOVING family pets. 
Secondly, they will be TOP QUALITY show and working dogs! 
All our dogs have GREAT temperaments and are part of our family. They are raised inside and live with 
our two small children. All puppies will be socialized with kids and other animals at an early age. 
They will only go to responsible, loving homes! 

~ BluHaven is Blessed ~
