I wouldn't worry about Bella's size and weight unless she was having health issues, and then I'd definitely worry. She's not that small, honestly. Havanese will keep growing until they reach maturity and it's different in different lines. Have you contacted her breeder to ask your question and voice your concerns? My little black and white girl Blossom was 7 lbs when she was one and still a puppy but made it to standard at 8 1/2 inches at the withers. When she got spayed she put on some weight and now we're working on getting her down to an optimum weight.
She was not a show dog but everyone picks her out when go to the park, or to the nursing home so she can shmooze with the people. The pick her over the other two finished Champions I own, because she has a very outgoing personality and has never met a stranger. She gives kisses and is a very sweet snuggly girl.
