While you're right that the standard calls for feet that don't turn in or out, there are quite a few dogs out there, including some show dogs, that have feet that turn out (one or both). When both turn out, it is sometimes called "Easty Westy" feet. The standard calls for the ideal dog, and no dog will ever fit every description of the standard, but the goal is to keep breeding better dogs that are as close to the standard as possible. Feet turning out isn't something we want and we should be breeding away from that, but it does happen on occasion.
$2K is a very normal (to low) price for a purebred Havanese, especially if coming from a breeder that shows and does health testing. If the breeder doesn't show nor health tests (documented), then it is an outrageous price, in my opinion.
