Smile Hello from Louisiana


My name is Jennifer I am from Louisiana. I do not currently own a Havanese; However, I am looking. I have been doing research on the Havanese and the Coton de Tulear, and they seem to have a lot of similarities.

I have a 2year old golden retriever..... I love goldens and I was thinking about getting another when my husband suggested a smaller dog. Then the research began I am part of the golden retriever forum and everyone on it has been very helpful so I figured I should join this one for the best info on Havs.

WELCOME to the forum!!

the Havanese is an amazing breed, everything we could have ever wanted in a dog, in a very tiny package fit for our very tiny house!! We've had our baby, Tillie, since Septmeber, she is now 5 months old
I hope you make yourself at home here on the forum and find the info you are looking for!

Welcome to the group Jennifer. You'll find wonderful information here and the most caring group of people. The havanese breed is very special. Though small, they're sturdy, sweet, funny and charming. Good luck in your search.

Thank you! It is so hard to find a breeder in my area. I know when I decide on a pup or even an adult if available, they may have to be flown and it worries me. I am not familiar with how all that works, but I wouldn't want to stress a pup.

Welcome!! Ask away. We all have em - we all love em - and we all have stories to tell.

These little guys are small, so putting them in with larger dogs "may" not be the best idea - of course that depends on temprament. Our Snickers plays well with larger dogs, but Snoopy is still nervous. Snickers is really pretty fast, and can change directions on a dime so I don't worry to much about her. Snickers isn't quite as fast and is still learning. If the Golden is gentle they should be fine.

Be aware, these little guys aren't called 'Velcro' dogs for nothing. Once you have bonded you won't be able to seperate yourself!!

Hi Jennifer and welcome to the forum. Like you, I also am currently Havaless (until tomorrow), and came here looking for advice, support, and info after researching and learning that Havanese was the breed for me. The gang here is awesome and you will find that they are sooooo helpful and knowledgeable and very graciously willing to take us newbies under their wing...er paw. You've definitely come to the right place.

Welcome to the forum. Like Jim said, the Havs are velcro dogs which means they love to be with you all the time. Eli is my first dog as an adult so it took me awhile to adjust to having him follow me around everywhere. Now I go looking for him when he's not by my side! We love him like crazy. It's probably good that you have another dog so there is a ready playmate around. Havs come with very noticeable personalities so finding a match for you and your dog will be important. My Eli would have done well with a super energetic dog in the house. He's happy to run and play ALL day. A slower, lazier dog would drive him crazy and visa versa. There are tremendously knowledgeble folks on this forum that have been invaluable to me in the past 3 months. Good luck with your search and let us know what you decide!
