It’s popular these days to call anything in recue that has a long, non-curly coat and doesn’t have a pushed-in nose a “Havanese or Havanese cross”. With crosses it can be almost impossible to guess the breeds. (They’ve actually done a study on this, and accuracy of peo0e’s guesses is something like 30%!) so take any guesses with a grain of salt!
As Ci said, you can do DNA testing, though I’ve heard of some wildly inaccurate results when purebred Havanese have been sent in for testing, simply because they don’t have enough Havanese DNA in their database. So that can be a roll of the dice too.
Your little girl is adorable, and “what” she is really doesn’t matter! Enjoy her for who she is! ...and you are welcome here whether she is a purebred Havanese or not... Ci posts regularly, and her Bingo is an “honorary Havanese”... no Havanese genetics, just looks similar! We love him (and her!) anyway! 😊
