Whats the difference
Thank you everyone, those of you who know my dear Kippers (an English Setter) just passed away, and I find myself for the first time ever being without a fur baby.
I don't want another crazy running dog, I loved Kippers, but my husband had picked her. Now that i can pick I am looking for a smaller yet intelligent dog. My neighbor recommended a Maltese, she has her third one, but I read the Havanese is smarter, and due to inbreeding, the Havanese is healthier. I see breeders, trainers, and people that show their beautiful dogs here.
As part this community, I know the focus is on Havanese, but can you tell me, compared to a Maltese, and the cuter look of a Havanese, the major differnces in personality, health issues, longevity, training, and grooming?
The photos I see show the most charming cuddly babies, if you were looking for a new Havanese, what are traits to look for, and to avoid please? I am studying this forum to look at such issues, but figure better to ask you all please.
