New Havanese owner needs reassurance
Hi, I have been reading this site for awhile waiting to find my Havanese. Well, I got her today.
She is 2 1/2 years old and came from a breeder who said she made it quite clear she did not want to be a mom. Apparently she teased the males and then at the critical moment, would roll onto her back and wave her feet in the air, thus making it all impossible for the male dog.
Anyway, she is here next to me. My problem is she will stay exactly where I put her. She won't walk around outside or inside. She won't eat or drink. She did pee once about 3 hours ago when I brought her home.
Supposedly she is not housebroken and she was supposed to be socialized by owner's children. I was told she is shy and takes awhile to warm up to strangers. Quite un - Hav - like, right? She does not seem to know her name.
She is adorable, white with black ears and some black spots on her back.
I think she was traumatized by the 2 1/2 hour car ride here. She vomited in the car in her crate on the way.
Do I just keep talking to her and keep watching her to see if she needs to go outside? Please talk to me.
