Smile Would like to adopt a Hav in need

Sasha and I would like to add a new member to our family. We would of course prefer a Havanese or even a mix if we are rescuing her/him. I have been watching HavRescue but other than Mocha it is rare to see one in Washington or Oregon. So I am asking if anyone hears of a Hav in need to let me know. Sasha promises to share her toys and to play RLH. Thank you.

Linda & Sasha

What a great idea, Linda! I'm sure Sasha would love a brother or sister - Abby loves her McGee! I'll keep my ears open.

Anyone familiar with Flaming Geyser Havanese in Enumclaw, WA? I have been trying to get her to call me back to no avail?

There is a little male puppy in Utah at Wasatch Rescue...he is 12 weeks old; don't know if you can get there...see my post above. I know that rescues in WA and OR are rare, maybe there is someone that can meet you 1/2 way...a Salt Lake Havi lover somewhere?

He doesn't look like a Havanese, though... at best, some kind of cross...

I just looked at him he is cute but Salt Lake would be a stretch. I am looking at a two year old male. I do have questions and planned to start a new thread, maybe this will work as well.
He is 2 and weighs in a 20 lbs or a little less, he has some issues with marking. Sasha is very small for a hav about 9 lbs or less. Do you think he would be too big for her to hold her own while playing? How easy is it to break them of marking? I would take him to classes. His owner loves him dearly but her husband is being deployed to Japan and she is going with him. I need to make a decision ASAP as she leaves on the 3rd of January.

Brady is over 20 pounds and Dugan is 18 pounds. Cassie is 10 pounds and she is the one in charge. She keeps the boys in line. They all play together beautifully and I have never worried about the boys being too rough with Cassie (more like the other way around). My Mom's hav, Bacca, will mark whenever he first gets to my house. He would never dream to mark at my Mom's house. Usually, if you start with a belly band when he first arrives and tell him a firm "no" when you see him mark, I would think he would learn. It usually takes a few days for Bacca to quit the marking at my house. Good luck!

Thank you I would hate for him to have to go to a rescue, this lady waited a little too long to put an ad up because she is very sad to leave him. She had hoped that a family member would take him. He is on Petfinder in Bremerton Wa area. His name is Bailey. For those of you that have rescued a hav - he is two do you think he would be able to bond to me?

Cassie was 2 1/2 when I got her as a foster from HRI (and failed fostering 101 and kept her). She is my shadow and loves me more than anything in the world. You would never guess she hasn't been with me since she was a puppy. Bacca (my Mom's hav) was a year and a half when she got him. He was a retired show dog (retired at an early age). He bonded with my Mom very quickly. You would never guess that she hadn't had him since he was a puppy. Hope that helps.
