1st time to dog park

Well yesterday was a nice day and I have semi successfully walked the 3 dogs. So I decided to drive over to the park lol. It went pretty good, I thought Vana would rlh but the only time she did was when all 3 were chasing a 1 yr male boxer, she was too busy with all the new smells. She is still shy towards people and she seems to have a thing against older women? She actually growled at my mil the other day. It is puzzeling.
I am trying to pin down a close guess to her age- the vet said no more than a yr. So I am trying to gather some info from you about your babies.

weight=age and if full grown when did they stop growing?
If girls what age did they go into their 1st heat?

Also I keep getting comments that Vana's legs look long- what are your dog's leg length?

I know at least I'm not asking about all your sizes, weight and ages lol

also is it a trait of the hav to lay flat like a schnauzer? Vana does this laying next to Izzy and Drake it is so cute.

I also wanted to just say Thank You for being so welcoming

oh..Ian and Leta too!!!

Welcome to Our Jungle!!!

Tillie is about 9 lbs at 9 months and I am pretty sure she is done growing. never went into heat so don't know about that question.
she does lay flat, paw on each side of her face, with the sad puppy dog eyes goin' on. we call her a "carpet with eyes" when she does that. LOL

I'm not 100% sure about this but this is what I've heard,

They finish growing at about 1 year, Ninja finished at like 8 months and then the 2nd year I heard they usually start to fill in and put on more weight. Idk if that's true but Ninja just turned 1 last month and it looks like he is starting to put on more weight. He used to look very skinny as a pup but not anymore. He weighs 11.3 pounds- was just at the vet Monday

About the long legs, I dont no his leg measurements BUT my trainer at the obedience classes we go to has a hav and her hav has longer legs as well. The trainer told me she grew up looking like a poodle hav mix but in her face you can see she is a hav. She also had bad knees, I dont no if that has anything to do with it.

Oh and the laying down thing I think my avatar picture says it all LOL

Hope I helped a little

Stella will be four in May and she weighs around 11-1/2 pounds. She weighed 3.3 pounds at 9 weeks and around 10 pounds at one year. I'm not sure about her leg length.
I had her spayed at six months so she never went into heat. She also lays with her legs behind her and a paw on each side of her face. I call it the pathetic dog look.

Lizzie is 10 days shy of a year and she is 10#. Yep, she lays flat, but not all the time. She prefers her sideways lay.

Wonder what's up with not liking older women? Possible abuse?

Nellie is 10 months old she just finished her 1st heat cycle,so she was nine and a half months when it started.She ways 10lbs,not sure about her height and length measurements,but I think she is a bit short in the legs!Dizzie stopped growing around the year mark, and has filled out a little since then,he is around the eleven to twelve lbs mark.And yes both of them like to laying out flat,they also like getting up on the back of the sofa behind our heads when we are sitting down, or any other time come to think of it, a bit like our cats.We think our cats have taken on dog characteristics,and the Havs have taken on the cats characteristics,its just lovely the way they all play and sleep together.One big heap of fur!
