I joined the spoiled maltese forum- asking for advice on Vana. This is what was emailed to breeders and posted.Curiosity is killing me, Should I just give in and buy the dna test? I found it for $69.99 Wisdom panel- test for havanese and cotons.
:If you do not have the time or if I have already contacted you , just delete and I am sorry for bothering you.
Doing some research I came across your email. We recently rescued a little dog on the hwy , no collar, tags or microchip. She was severly malnurished and was going to be hit. She had a piece of tire tread stuck to a mat in her fur that night it got down to 26- she wouldn't have made it. She wiggled her way into our hearts and is here to stay.
Long of the short we are trying to determine her breed. She has changed, filled out, mats have been tended to ect, the vet thinks she is about a year and she just had her heat. I have some ideas as to what her breed may be- but would like as many opinions as possible. I am considering doing the dna testing to determine her breed. I have found that breeders are the best source of info. so I would apprieciate your feedback.
Desctiption of Havana:
about 10 inches height/ about 14-15 long- body like Falcor- Dragon Dog from Never Ending story longer than tall
weight- when rescued 7.12, now 9.3 she should be around 11 lbs
eyes- almond shape
coat-white with champage, golden color tail and rim of ears, texture- wavy- silky (not poodle like) Tail feathered over back
bite- scissor bite
likes to walk on her hind legs and jump, has a springy gait, loves to be held , up in your lap, separation anxiety.
Breeds that have been suggested: Havanese, Maltese, Coton de tuleure, havamalt, maltipoo, cotonese even shi-poo- I have miniature schnauzers and don't know much about the other breeds except what I have learned from gathering info. Please tell me more about your breed.
Could you take a look and see what you think? ( I have more if you want
) here is a album it shows her changes in the 2 months:
Thanks and God bless, Jenny:
