Do we have a Havanese?

We recently adopted Oscar at our local shelter. He was a stray that they had just picked up a few days prior and they had no idea what he was. Our vet and a few friends suggested that he might be Havanese. He does a cute little waddle type jump when he walks and is the pickiest eater I have ever seen. He loves to string his food around the house, but rarely eats any of it. We purchased several types of dog food for him to see what he might like, but he licks them and spits them all out. He's super sweet and only seems content if we are all the room with him (all 5 of us). He's a huge kisser and doesn't really play with toys. His coat must have been trimmed as he has longer bits of hair where they missed. I'm not sure if any of this info relates to the Havanese or if this is just "Oscar". I appreciate any input you can offer

I'm only a new member but what a sweety! I'm sure the pros on this forum will help you. A lot of his personality sounds like a Hav!

What a doll!! I think he looks like a havanese, but I don't have a real keen eye when it comes to this.

Well he is too cute for words... Can't see his tail set, that is usually one indicator. His approximate height and weight would help too. I agree with Flynn - his nose looks Hav to me, but no matter what he is he is adorable!

What a cutie! I can't believe someone didn't notice that he was missing and look for him. Oh well, their loss and what a super find for you. I think he looks very "Hav". Congratulations!!!

He's about 10 lbs right now but the vet said he's too skinny and needs to put on a few. I think it's because he's such a picky eater and he wasn't eating well when he was stray. His front legs are a bit shorter than his hind legs and his tail is held in a high curl over his back when he walks. He's one of the friendliest dogs I've met and doesn't seem to dislike anyone or any dog. He's about 10-11" at the shoulder (he wouldn't hold still for me).
