Melanie & Fidel!!

Hi all,

My name is Melanie, and I have been a havanese owner for a little over a week, and now totally in love. Fidel is a 3 yr old havanese that because of divorce, ended up with me. he was recently shaved down, so not sure what he will look like as he begins his growing out process, but i am excited either way. I have been a pet groomer, for the last 10 years, but only have had the chance to run across one Hav that was in a 4F pet/puppy cut. i am hoping that with my matt deterrent style of brushing/combing we can get his coat to full length. this is a pic of him the day we got him. He was just recently shaved down at home by previous owner. face, body etc. He still had inch thick matts to shave off of rear, under arms etc. Glad to meet you all!!!
