This is me when I was almost 2 months old.
Look how long my coat was getting.

There is a lot to know about any breed before you bring that cute little puppy into your home.

A responsible pet parent will do research about the breed they want. If you are planning to rescue a dog, do some research about the breed you are getting. Not all dogs personalities are alike, just like humans are not all alike. I have some Havanese 101 over here to help you as well.

  2. Coat can be kept long or cut short. {Keeping it long is work but my moms says it is worth it, she loves my long coat}
  3. Little to no Shedding
  4. Hypo allergenic so great with those who have allergies because it won't bother them.

My pet parents love me very much and did a lot of research before they brought me home and being with them and making them happy is what makes me "Happy."


  1. I love how the havanese looks. My neighbor has three and they are not nice. I wondered if it's just them, and apparently it is an aberation. Maybe it is how they were raised. Cute but suspicious and stand off ish. Yours is awesome. The pic of his little foot, oy!! Maybe I should check out more havanese to see if we're a good fit for next puppyness. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

  2. oh I surprised to hear they are not nice because Havanese are very loving dogs and love to love on you. Read some more on my Havanese 101 if you have not already. Thanks for stopping by!
