Are there really red Havs?

I've always loved the look of the reds in the Havanese world, but recently I've noticed that red isn't mentioned in *some* of the major Hav books, websites or in the standard (or in that other standard). It seems like the places that I have seen the reds have been in Canada or Europe.

I guess I'm wondering if red is considered undesirable for anything other than a pet? I'm guessing the color would be recessive? When reds show up in a litter, is it generally a surprise, or are there certain breeding pairs that end up with red puppies?

I know that the red puppies can change a lot in color, much like the sables, and I would never pick a puppy solely picked on color, but I do adore the reds and would be interested in finding one if possible when it's time for dog #3

Thanks for any info!

Beverly

The reds are gorgeous!

I suppose they wouldn't be considered original cuban dogs though? lol

Stunning!

Hi Beverly!

There is a breeder who lives near Philadelphia, PA (where we moved from this year), and I know she has a beautiful "red" Hav named Bella Rosa in her breeding program. THe name of the kennel was Ahavapicaro. So, if you google that word, you might come up with her website and a photo of the dog. I always loved that color, too. I am not sure as to the "rules" about colors but as far as I know in the Hav standard it says no one color is given preference over any other, so I would take that as a red Hav is ok!

Kristin,

Ahavapicaro has recently relocated to South Carolina. Patricia is a really great breeder and she has some great dogs.

Hi Lina!

Yes that was her name! She was so nice to me, I had planned on hopefully getting a puppy from her but when Tony and I decided an adult Hav would work better for us, she was extremely understanding and sweet. I googled her kennel and she has the picture of Bella Rosa under "Ladies of Ahavapicaro"...what a cutie!!!!!!!

I have a friend with a red havanese. Her dog is getting older so some of the red has faded but you could really see it when we were walking in the sun.... very pretty!
