New to forum and havanese...

Hi all, I'm Carrie, and my little hav girl is Ellie.

Friends of ours were in over their heads and asked us if we could take her. She is 7 1/2 months and we have only had her for 1 1/2 months now. She is the first little dog we have ever owned. Our other dog, Callie, is a german shepherd, plus we do fostering for a local rescue, which are usually lab mixes. We haven't done a puppy in 11yrs so she is quite a change for us. Of course we are loving every minute of her naughtiness, not to mention all the quirks I am reading that are typical of havanese!

I love her sassy little look right now, although she will have many different looks since I am a groomer!

Thanks! I am pretty bad about keeping my camera charged up - I stayed up late just to get that one pic up!

I thought it was funny to learn that they love shredding paper and boxes. That explaines why she keeps going into the recycling and pulling boxes out to shred, while completely ignoring her toys!

I left 17yrs of factory to become a groomer last spring. I love working with dogs all day, I just wish it hadn't taken me so long to figure out what I wanted to be when I grow up! Since then I had been looking for the perfect little dog to add to our family, one that I could have fun grooming (right now I am growing her legs out into bell bottoms). I was thinking more on the lines of a maltese or mini schnauzer, I had never known anyone who had a hav, and in WI they are not known at all. But Ellie is perfect and we couldn't be happier with her!
