Photos of Pup!

OK, so after WAY too many days (sorry) here are my photos of Pup!!!

He's 8 months old, and is MUCH happier than when we brought him home. His neuter went very well and hasn't slowed him down at all. His ear infection is almost completely gone, and we only have a few more days of treatments for him. The fleas seem to be gone and he's no longer scratching. He's been bathed and will be going to the groomer soon for full service (including a trim). Housetraining is going extremely well - we haven't had an accident in two days! Although I have been watching him like a hawk and haven't really given him a chance to mess up. Hopefully that will pay off.

Now we just need a name!!! I haven't had a male dog since I was in elementary school. Any suggestions for a good boy name? He's a complete clown, and he LOVES to make us laugh. He's a very smart little guy and really wants to please.

I'm not sure if he's all Havanese or if he's a cross with something else. Any thoughts on this? I'm very disapointed - his tail has been docked. That makes me very said, as their tails are so beautiful and so expressive. But we can't use that as "identification" to help figure out if he's cross-bred or not. His little stub does wiggle A LOT though!!!

Here he is!!!

The dog in my avatar is Tango, my other Havanese. She was also a rescue, but she's been with me about 4 years now.

Isn't it funny how similar they look?!?

DH said the other day that he reached down and didn't know which one he was petting.

I don't think they're quite that close......

But it's still crazy!

Oh my gosh, they do look so much alike! Tell you DH he will have to look at their tails before he pets them!
As for a name...hmmmmm. I had Jammies named picked out before I convinced DH that I "really" wanted a Hav. You said he acted like a clown, you could call him "Bozo"......does that fit? LOL....I think you just might need some other suggestions. Although the more I look at it, the more I like it!
I'm glad he is doing so well! Good luck with a name!

I had the same idea another "dance" name! How about Rumba? Or Samba, Conga or Bolero?

I love his eyebrows.
"Jester" came to my mind...even before I read Marj's post!
It would match his "clownish" personality.
I like "Limbo" too.
How about "Cash" (Tango & Cash)
Good luck...let us know what you decide.
And you KNOW...we'll need more pics after he gets groomed....

Renee, Miley, & Copper too!

I'm voting for Cash!

I don't have any great ideas for names... I think this is something you can only decide when you know the animal personally. But I did want to say that he sure is a cutie! You are lucky to have found each other!

Thanks everyone!!!

I love the name suggestions. I wanted Cash, but DH said no way. I was very dissapointed.

I do like some of the names suggested here, so thanks!!! If you have more, keep them coming.

This weekend should be interesting....DH is out of town for the weekend, so I have the 4 dogs all to myself, trying to housebreak Pup, and get ready for family coming in for Thanksgiving.

Yikes!!!
