New here...Half-a-Pom (havanese/Pomeranian)

So I'm a new member. I have a lovely little pup who is half Havanese, half Pomeranian. She is five and a half months old, and we had her fixed three weeks ago.

One of the reasons I wanted to join is to find out more about her Hav side. I've only met a few havanese in my life.

She started off all black with white on her chin and back paws. She also had a bit on her belly and under her chin. After at least a month I think (time flies when they are this young!) her hair seemed to be a dark chocolate brown with black at the tip.

These days that is less noticeable. If anything it's more black and maybe the darkest brown possible. She started to get a bit of white on her other paws and definitely more on her belly. And now she is getting white hairs all over the place! It is so hard to tell if it's the same texture as her other hairs. It's sprinkled all over. I think this started before her surgery, not sure exactly, but it's definitely noticable since then. She also has started to lose her baby teeth this past week. She is missing her bottom two front ones, and has somewhat of a double row of top ones it looks like.

I don't want to sound shallow or picky, but I am hoping she ends up with more of a havanese coat just because of the shed factor. But I have no idea how to tell this young. Poms go thru 'puppy uglies' around this time and it can last for at least four months as the puppy coat falls out and the adult coat grows in. But I think color changes at this age aren't typical for poms. I know havanese do their 'blow coat' thing and can change color more than once. The only thing I can tell for sure is she has Pom ears, and maybe havanese bangs over her eyes.

She is five pounds now (at ten weeks she was 1.8), and we think she will max out at 6, although you never can tell...

Sorry for such a long intro post. ;-)

Well she is the cutest little pup!What is her name?Her coat certainly looks more Hav like,and so does her expression.I would think at this stage she is too young to tell how her coat may turnout as Havs generally don't go through coat blowing until they are about 8 months old.Some people find that the texture of their fur changes after they have been done,but this takes a few months as the hormones settle down,so she has got a lot going on at the moment with her fur,so I think you will just have to try and be patient and wait and see how she will turn out!!Did you get to see her Mum and Dad,that might give you an idea.Please post some more pictures of her as we love photos here!

Welcome! Your puppy looks so cute and sounds like a lot of fun. Nina was 4 1/2 lb at 5 months and now at 6 months is 6 lbs. From what I understand she is considered on the small end of Havanese. Your puppy at this point looks to favor its Havanese side in looks. I agree no matter what she is adorable!

I agree, she is a super cutie! My previous dog was a pom/llasa apso mix and she was a wonderfully smart and playful girl, adorable too! I think you have great little girl

Welcome and very cute puppy. I agree that she does have a Hav face. I guess deciphering the coat and color will take awhile. Enjoy her no matter what she turns out to be, but I agree with you that no shedding is a plus and is one of the reasons I selected the Havanese breed.
