New short-haired Havanese owner
I've had my short-haired Havanese, Tilly, for a little over a year now. She's a great little dog, and we're training for agility trials.
Sorry if it isn't protocol to introduce myself. I'm excited to find other Havanese owners, even if she's short-haired (aka shavanese).
Does anyone know the frequency with which short-haired Havanese pop up in the population? I think for any two dogs who are known to carry a copy of the "fur" gene (as opposed to the normal Havanese "hair" gene) that it would be about 25% (because it's recessive, so you need two copies to get fur), but I wonder how many dogs being bred have that dormant recessive gene.
