Thank you all for your very kind words. I am just so glad we could bring him to our furever home to be a companion for Buffy and an entertaining little clown for us.

Suzi,

Buster was 5 months old at the time (Birthdate 02/22/2010).

He was one of two very calm puppies curled up together towards the back of the kennel when all the the puppies and older juveniles were jumping up and barking at the kennel's bars. It was heartbreaking not to be able to take them all home with me, but my DH would have been upset if I brought more than one home.

As it is, all the Havanese were adopted quickly (although the one shy adult took a little longer). I was told that adopters came from as far away as Las Vegas and Washington state.

The one unfortunate thing is that the "breeder" continued in business. The shelter never divulged his name, and it was rumored that he went to another county with his breeding dogs. Very sad situation.

He has a look about him that reminds me of Zoey He is a lucky Havanese to have found you! Did he adapt to your family fast? That's a bummer the guy still has his puppy mill.

We are so lucky to have brought him home to join our family. He adapted pretty quickly to our family life and to Buffy. In fact, Buffy was like a mother to him for several months. It was so sweet to watch them together.

The hardest thing was house training him, like many Havanese, but he was already 5 months old and did not have a clue how dogs live in a house and go outside to do their business. he was just used to peeing and pooping whenever and wherever he felt like it - as all the other dogs did where he came from.

On top of that, his gut was a mess because of all the parasites and the necessary meds needed to rid him of them. Once I asked the Vet about canine probiotics, he began to get "normal" after about a week on the probiotics. Before that, it was butt-bath city around here. Yuck!
