White Havanese

I'm a new Hav owner. My Hav is white. I noticed that most of the white ones have a little tan on the ears. Is this some sort of trait with the breed? Does a pure white Hav exist. Just weird that ever white Hav pic I see has tan ears.

Hi and welcome to the forum if a white Hav has cream ears then they are a cream and not a true white.

here is a couple of photos of one of my girls who is a white, minus a couple facial stains.

Zmrzlina as a new born, I circled the one that was her, though she is the only white one in the litter, the others are cream

ya, the ones (like mine) that you are seeing so many of with the "tan" ears were "sables" when they were babies... Havanese often change color and lighten considerably.

As Tillie gets older I am starting to see a pattern... she is WAY more white on her 'odd' years (1 and at almost 3 I see about 1/2 an inch of white growth coming in) and her even years she is more of an apricot. Time will tell if it is always that way. Although she looks "white" she is not. She is a "Red Sable". ha ha

here is a pic of Tillie as a baby.

Wow Tammy, I can't believe how much Tillie's colouring changed. I wonder how light Doug will go! I have already noticed his coat change in colour!

I always refer to Bella as white, but I guess she really is a sable. She still has a ton of tan and gray coloring on her back.
