Encore Havanese
Desi, Teddi & Cruiser
Encore Havanese, located in Escondido, California (35 miles
northeast of downtown San Diego), is dedicated to breeding
the highest quality Havanese for the home and show ring.
All Encore dogs are bred, raised and trained in a family
environment with a high level of human and canine

The Encore kennels originated with Briards in 1995.  Marilyn
Vaughn and her husband Steve Sivitz and their Briards,
were active in conformation, herding and agility. Marilyn
acquired her first Havanese in partnership with a long time
friend, Mary Lopez,
Amor Havanese, in 1999. In addition to
her own dog projects, Marilyn is active in the
Gold Country
Havanese Club (www.goldcountryhavanese.com)
Strive to breed for dogs that conform to the
AKC's Havanese standard
Our top priorities are good health, stable
temperament and happy personality
Place our dogs with families that will return
the love, entertainment and happiness that
the Havanese brings to that home
