Met our first Hav pup..
..and yep, he was adorable. Very playful, and very puppy, though he would stop for his belly to be rubbed upside down in your arms, and gave kisses, and chased a ball forever!
I think, though, we really need to meet and learn more about adult Havs. My daughter is not even set on getting a puppy (she's pretty mature for 11- she "gets" that all puppies are adorable, but it's the grown up dog she wants as her friend, so she's considering an older dog not just a pup in our search).
Keeping in mind that even the same breed of pup can be different from one to the next...what typically is life with a Hav like? Are they super energetic? Independent? Clingy? Love to do tricks (this one really liked retrieving, which surprised me)? Just happy to be around? Keep you within sight or would rather be underfoot?
The one today reminded me a lot of a Maltese, I know they are the same "family" but I'm sure there are differences, can anyone explain? (I mean temperament not appearance)
Sorry for the million questions. We just take this decision very very seriously and are trying to learn all we can.
