I have 3 rescue dogs, 2 Havs and 1 that is a rat terrier mix. We've had Molly (the rat terrier) for about 10 years. She was so shy and skittish when we got her, she's come out of her shell quite a bit. That being said, she still is skittish about certain things and still quite shy of strangers. Darin, the puppy we got from HALO, is doing well. Although, he still doesn't like to come up to us if we are standing, he'll come if we are sitting down. He doesn't have any health issues except for the fact that his legs are bowed and he has a bit of a swayback. Sami was from a pet rescue shelter and she is the most normal acting of the 3. They didn't even know she was Havanese, we learned it from our groomer. Sami is the perfect Havanese except that she is 13 inches tall at the shoulders (a little on the tall side) but we can't figure out why anyone would have wanted to get rid of her!
Someday, I would like to get a Havanese from a breeder, for the same reason as you, that I would be able to train them right from the start and any issues they have would be my fault! Our families get on our case for having 3 dogs. It's none of their business, if that's what we want, so be it!
