Newbie: Have I a Hav?

Hello all!

I'm a newbie to the forum and a newbie to Havanese. Last weekend, my son and I were leaving the dog park when we came upon a bedraggled little furball lying in the street, resting. The driver in front of us slowed and passed by, so I stopped and got out of the car, scooped up the poor little thing, and put him in my car. We took him home and bathed him, pulled out the stickers from his fur and combed out the mats (I did have to cut some 'clingons' from his pants and cut a couple of mats. I have advertised him as lost on 3 internet local lost pet sites, and put up a sign on the fence at the dog park. If you click on my ad on Craigslist, you can see a picture of him. Can anyone verify that he is a Havanese? I think he is but am not certain. When I can figure out how to post pics I will try to get some more up.

Thank you!

Here are the other ads I posted; the first uses the same photo as above:

Tanya he is a cutie. Sure looks like he could have some Havanese in him. I hope you find his owners.

Tanya, he looks like a Hav to me. Thankyou for picking him up and taking such good care of him. I hope his owners find him, but if not maybe he found you!

What a cutie! Certianly looks like he could have some hav in him to me. Do you have a dog? Are you considering keeping him if you do not locate his owner. Hard to believe noone is looking for him.

The vet told me that by law, I must try to find the owner for 7 days and after that I can keep him. The vet scanned him but found no microchip on him and suggested he was about 6 months old. My kids kind of like him, but he means a 2nd dog in our house so I haven't decided yet what to do.

In spite of his bedraggled state when I found him, I can tell that someone had been caring for him. He wasn't too badly matted. His fur in between his paw pads was trimmed, and his ears were clear of hair. His anal area was carefully trimmed for cleanliness but just where necessary. From what I have learned about Havanese, these are important and someone must have known about how to care for them and was doing it for him. The really odd thing though was the collar that was on him. It was far too big for a dog his size, and old/used.

Wierd about the collar. How lucky I would feel to have found a puppy that was either havanese or part havanese. Hope all works out for the best! Please keep us informed! Thanks!

It might be that someone found him before you and put a collar on him from a dog they had. I hope you find his home. If not, and if you don't want to/can't keep him you should contact havanese rescue. I'll keep watching for updates.

He's a cutie, and looks like a hav to me. Like Patty, I'd be so happy to "find" or "be found by" a Hav. He's a lucky little boy that you saw him, took him in, and are doing so much for him, including researching the breed. I

f you don't find his family or keep him there is a link on the Forum's home page to HRI, (Havanese Rescue,) to contact for help.

Please keep us posted.
