Possible foster?

I might be fostering a couple of havanese I found on Craigslist!
I saw this listed:
FOUND TWO HAVANESE DOGS
pleasE EMAIL ASAP. ONE OF THEM IS STILL NURSING POOR BABY!!
I couldn't not respond, so I did. She is a registered nurse and found them in her garage, which was left slightly open. She is taking them to the vet tomorrow for a microchip check...I told her I would foster them if she couldn't care for them (I don't want them to go to the wrong home)...so we are talking. If they aren't microchipped I will contact the rescue and go from there.
Their tails don't curl over their backs though...thoughts on that?

Some Havs don't curl their tails... are you sure these aren't Shih Tzus? The picture isn't the best, but the face reminds me of a Shih Tzu more than a Hav...

You are wonderful for fostering them! How sad that they were left, perhaps they are just lost and their mom is looking for them? I hope they have a happy ending!

I thought Shih Tzu too...but seems weird that she called them havanese (being it isn't a popular breed)....I don't know. Regardless, if she needs my help, I'll help her!

Well I am glad you are there to help. I would have also said shih tzu especially the lower left face. With the haircuts, it makes you think they are someone's babies. I hope you can find an owner!

I know, they look well cared for! She has my cell and I've been in contact with a local rescue that places toy breeds...just in case they aren't havs, they can work with me!

Karla- Last year I went on a dog id for HRI and it ended up being a very elderly shih tzu and this rescue group was able to take her in. You may want to try them if they are identified as shih tzu later.

Thanks Amanda...at this point, I'm hoping she contacts me (unless she finds their owner)...I am so fearful she will give them to the wrong person.
The situation seems a bit odd...and I'm not sure why...They seem so well cared for...she said they are potty trained and wonderful with kids....maybe she has had them longer then I know??? Again, just a weird feeling...not sure why.

They definitely look like shih tzus...especially the one on the left. The other may have some lhasa apso?? Not that there's anything wrong with that...my shih tzus are very lovable and are great companion dogs.

Did you hear anything back from her? The situation does sound rather suspicious.

Wow Karla, that's strange. If they don't find their owners, I hope they give them to you. They're really cute. Please keep us posted.

I think they are Shih Tzus also. Also, I'm confused by the part about one still nursing. They are both cut and too old to need to be nursing. Does it mean that one of them is a recent mother and has full teats and has been separated from her puppies?
