Need Help & Opinions

Hello, while reserching I found this site and I am hoping to get some more advice and opinions. Almost 2 wks ago my husband rescued this little white dog on the hwy, no collar or tags, or missing reports. She was very malnurished and her fur was matted so it was very hard to determine her breed. I thought maybe a maltese mix, but knew she was too large for a maltese, maybe Lhaso I really only know my schnauzers well. She is about 11 inches tall-14 long body like Falco from A Never Ending Story. She isn't poodle like at all-hair,ears,bite,nose. I looked at several photos and spoke to breeders and with her body type, the cream coloring on her tail and her silky hair and her temperment that she is at least part Havanese What do you think? We have decided to keep her, she wiggled right into the family- even though with 2 mini schnauzers and 2 cats there wasn't much room. We decided her name is Havana White aka Vana or Vanabanana

What ever her breed she will be loved for life

Thanks for any replys, I have looked into the breed testing and have found that most of them don't have Havanese as a breed?!

(photos are of the 1st few days w/us, she is doing so much better and sparkle has come to her eyes and she now carries her tail high curled around her back)

Take Care, Jenny

What a good thing you've done for this sweet baby. Others will be more knowledgeable than I am about whether she's got some Hav in her (but it looks like it to me!). Thank you so much for taking her into your home and hearts!

That was a great thing you and your family has done for her. Her face looks like a havanese to me. Maybe she is a havanese maltese mix? I hope someone else will help out here but whatever she is, she is ADORABLE.

Congratulations and Thank You! She's a beautiful girl. She looks a lot like my Coton deTulear.

You've done a wonderful deed. She is adorable, and I just love her name. She sure looks like a Hav to me.

Enjoy her!

Looks like a hav, or perhaps the legs are a bit long... maybe a TT? (Tibetan Terrier) She does look small, though, like a hav...

She looks adorable! So glad she's found a place to be loved.
