Finally - I have a Hav!

Very excited. Was able to 'rescue' a sweet little girl. I got her from a woman who trains former kennel dogs for 'real life'. She is 3 1/2 and was unable to breed so now she'll live happily in our home with our Sheltie, Benny. I've always had Shelties (26 years) but my daughter has developed a dog allergy and now that she is away at university, it is far more noticable when she comes home. Benny's companion of 11 years passed in June and I knew our Sheltie days were over so started looking for a compatable breed that was allergy friendly. Everything I read about the Havanese's temperment made me think it would be a good match for Benny and for our lifestyle. So far, so good but I'm a newbee and expect I'll be looking for lots of help.

Congrats and Welcome! You have come to the right place! Your little girl is so very sweet looking and I'm sure she is going to make a wonderful addition to your family.What is her name?? Benny is lucky to have a Hav as a companion

Well, that's a bit of a problem...the woman caring for her has been calling her Bella - I favour Breezy. Strangly enough when I was going to see her the name Bella flashed through my mind and then when I sent her pic to my daughter the same thing happened. Neither of us knew that's what she was being called so I'm not particularly superstitious but can't help but wonder if she is meant to be Bella

Welcome to the forum, Bella and Mommy. You're in for many happy and fun years. She's adorable and I'm sure she and Bennie will be good friends. Enjoy
