We are the Saxey family and we are Havanese owners with a great affection for our dogs. We have always been dog lovers. In the past Dr. Saxey, along with his experienced and uncompromising parents, raised German Shepherds, Standard Poodles, Papillons and Schipperkes with his brothers while growing up. Hause Sachse Kennels, located in Sunnyside WA, and later in Portland, OR were renouned for their excellent skills and quality companions. His experience with his family gave him a love of dogs and a feeling of satisfaction and responsibility that we wanted to pass along to our children.
Rodericks parents had a large kennels throughout the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's, raising primarily German Shepherds in thier business called Haus Sachse Kennels. Many of Roderick's childhoold memories are of dog showing and his relationship with the dogs. The following is a nice synopsis of Haus Sachse Kennels experience with their German lines and from their lines direcly from Rin Rin Tin III, Jolly Arno, and others.
