New here from Texas!
My name is Marah and I'm new here! We are still waiting to become a Havanese family.
For some background, my 11 year old daughter is "officially" the one looking to become a Havanese Momma. I didn't even know the breed existed until about 5 months ago! When discussing getting a puppy, I told her I was all for it, but she had to do her research and find the right dog for our family. She read more books than I can count and made her own list of criteria, even thinking of things like "hypoallergenic" as her little sister has asthma (but no pet allergy- she just wanted to be safe!) She was the one who discovered Havs...three more books about Havanese later, and some emails to a few breeders, and I have to admit, she may have found the perfect breed for us.
So much so that now I'm thinking of getting my own Hav as well!
My biggest uncertainty at the moment is that we don't personally know any Hav families, so we haven't spent time with them. I can understand breeders don't want everyone and their uncle stopping by only to play with pups, but I'm still hoping we can find someone who will let us just come and see the dogs in person, even knowing we aren't quite ready to purchase yet.
We don't have a timeline as to when we'll find our dog (or even how old, sex, color, etc). We do need to move into our new house first, but after that...we'd rather have the right dog than the "right now" dog, y'know?
Okay, way long introduction. Glad to have found you all!
