I'm so glad to hear this! It is a shame what happened to your first pup, but I'm sure you and the girls will fall in love with this one quickly!

A phantom is like a ghost, which seems like a funny name for a mostly black puppy. On the other hand, a lot of breeders use "themes" for each litter. So if she were using "Phantom of the Opera" or something as the theme for the litter, that might be why she chose that name for him.

Phantom is a coloration pattern, I know there are phantom poodles..this from the web

"The term "phantom poodle" does not refer to a specific breed or size of poodle, only to its color and markings. Phantom poodles are bi-colored, with the same markings as a Doberman. That is, they have a lighter color appearing on their "eyebrows," muzzle and throat, legs and feet and below their tail. For a dog to be classified as a phantom it must have all the markings of a Dobie. Phantom poodles come in various color combinations. Black can be combined with apricot, brown, cream, gray, red and silver. Brown and red can both be combined with apricot"

Welcome to Charlie! I'm happy to hear you brought some sunshine into your home after the sadness of losing Loki.

Interesting. I've never heard that term in relation to Havanese, though.

I thought she meant the breeder was calling the PUPPY "Phantom"... not the COLOR!
