Don't get a havanese if...
Hi I'm Myreen from Iowa and I'm thinking whether a havanese would be a good dog for me and my husband. The main reasons I like them are 1) minimal shedding (I had childhood asthma) 2) small sturdy dog 3) non aggressive, gentle, playful temperament 4) gets along with children (for when we have them in the future).
I previously had 2 shih tzus and a shetland sheepdog/japanese spitz mix but this will be the first time that I'll be the primary caregiver.
I'm a stay at home wife and we have a small non fenced backyard. We don't have any other pets. We're couch potatoes but I think we can manage daily 30 minute walks.
I've been reading up on havanese care, behavior problems and health issues. This site has been very helpful. I would apreciate if you could highlight some reasons why they might not be right for me.
Thank you in advance!
