Is he part havanese?

I have recently adopted a mutt and am curious as to what kind(s) of breed he's got in him. I was wondering if any of you could offer insight? I am not very good at identifying breeds. I was originally told dandie dinmont terrier... which I can sort of see... but he doesn't have the right tail, ears, and coat (not to mention dandie's are extremely rare and I doubt anyone would put one on the street). He has a hypo-allergenic coat so I am thinking a havanese or bichon mix. His vet and adoption papers ranged from lhasa apso to ****-zu mix.

I am curious to see how long his hair will grow! I think the fuller, the better... to make his head look smaller

images from the petfinder site when he had a much shorter coat (not sure if I like his hair this short... he doesn't look like he likes it either!)

his shaggier self:



he's got the plumed tail, but you can't really see it in any photos


Like I said, I am just curious and you guys seemed to be more knowledgable about dogs than me... I will love him regardless of his heritage haha

oh no, sorry! I forgot to mention his name! He was named Wall-E from the adoption/rescue people and we thought it was cute so we kept it We actually watched the movie with him the other weekend and was very unexcited about it! haha

I think he looks like a poodle mix.

Dandie Dinmont's are very rare and expensive.....they have larger eyes,bigger headset,shorter legs and a long body. I think the clip on the headpiece gives you this impression.

He is very cute and will be a joy in your life I'm sure!

He does look like he has Hav in him to me. He has "that face" and eyes. Whatever Wall-E is he's really a cute guy!

He is adorable and might be a Hav/Poodle mix.

thanks for all the replies! He appreciates your comments about how cute he is--but I will try not to let them go to his head!

I have only had him a few weeks and haven't gotten him groomed yet... I am going to have to make up my own "cut" I think--haha. I wish his hair would get a bit longer so I could pull off something like the havanese puppy cuts!

and p.s. am I welcome to stick around even though I have a mutt that sort of looks like a hav?

Welcome. Your boy certainly does look Hav-like. He looks quite a bit like my Brady. I would guess a hav or bichon mix. How old is Wall-E? How much does he weigh?
