Question Does this pup look like a Hav?

Hello-

I was wondering if the experts feels this rescue pup might be a Hav. He is listed as such and was rescued from a home where they had to many dogs and they were told he was Havanese.

His tail doesn't have the characteristic tight curl though. He is 6 months old and 12 pounds. The rescue said that he was non-shedding.

He could be, but these days, because Havanese have become so popular, anything that is long haired and doesn't have a pushed in face is listed as a "Havanese" or "Havanese cross".

He looks like he could very possibly have some Havanese in him.

He looks very much like my friends minpin chihuahua. But the colors are more Havanese. Maybe a havahuahua? I groom two of those.

Might be the picture angle but the face looks a little too flat to me...

I would call my pup as close to non shedding as is possible. Try a couple of mini aussies if you want to know about shedding, or a sleek Great Dane whose hair will imbed in fabric forever. The only thing Iíve gotten off Abby is some little cottony breakage, & a couple of trimmed off mats. People shed more than this dog. Sure they will blow their puppy coat, but most breeds blow coat a couple of times a year, every year. My long haired cat will fill a slicker brush nearly every day. I feel you are doing a disservice to the breed by calling it a selling feature.
