Hello Everyone

I just wanted to take a moment to say hello to everyone on here and introduce myself. I have been reading all of your post since before I got my hav Kloie in Jan. I appreciate all of your tips and suggestions very much! I lost my best friend this last fall to wobblers and old age (he was a rescue doberman). We still have one rescue doberman in our home but I really was missing my guy and I decided on a small breed and after much research a havanese seemed perfect. I found a good breeder that did all the testing and now I have Kloie. She is a wonderful young lady. Although she will never replace my guy, she certainly has taken over my heart

Welcome, Melissa and Kloie! She's beautiful! (And, I can tell that you've been reading the Forum, since you mention she's from a breeder that health checks!

She'll undoubtably fill in another corner of your heart to the fullest, although you'll always miss your Dobie.

I am a firm believer in rescue. Like I said my past dogs had come from rescue. I also know the health hazards of poor breeding and the hard work and dedication that comes from owning and loving rescue dogs. Not to say that good breeders can't have puppies with occassional health problems. I just tried to do a lot of research before buying my puppy because after 5 years of neurologist and "what is best for him" I wanted the best chance to just have a healthy, happy dog. I will probably choose rescue again sometime in my life.....just right now, my heart couldn't take it.

Also - I ordered a CC brush because of everyones great reviews and I absolutely love it! I got the wood pin brush. It is amazing! Thank you all for giving it such great reviews!

Melissa, your Kloie has the most unusual coat color I've ever seen. She's beautiful and I look forward to seeing how her color changes as she grows up. Welcome to the group. You'll find incredible information here and lots of caring from crazy dog lovers.

Enjoy every day with your baby. They grow up all too fast.
