Actually Jill I believe there are four. Two sisters and a brother and a second short haired Hav male and I'm pretending I don't know it. It isn't easy. They are adorable.

those darn puppy mills

So many of those dear sweet ones in Livonia are puppy mill babies and their moms. It is just tragic that these places still exist, and the pet stores who purchase them.

So many of the dogs that end up at Havanese Rescue, too, are puppies from pet stores often taken away from their moms before the recommended ten to twelve weeks. They haven't learned bite inhibition or puppy manners they would learn from a healthy dam.

Folks want a dog, and they want it fast. Many great breeders have long waiting lists or don't want to place a puppy with tiny children...so people go to petshops. Or one-day-pets. Or even buy at a puppy mill auction. These dogs haven't had the benefit of a healthy mom to teach them manners or not to fear. They haven't had the benefit of health testing. And many of them are sick. Worse yet, they struggle with issues for life.

Many dogs are resilient. With love, consistency, and care. Ah...

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Linda it is a Catch-22 for those who love the breed and want to save them but hate puppy mills and want them out of existence. In the meantime, there are these little babies that need to be loved and are given this second chance for that. I'm sure hoping they find it.

and who better than someone who knows the breed

I think the best chance these dogs have is a hav owner who knows and understands them and another havanese to teach them what dog life really is supposed to be about...to be adored and pampered...given a nice warm place to sleep, tender pets, and consistency.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
