Havanese or not?
I adopted this little guy from the city shelter in April. He was listed as a cairn terrier mix (def. not), and my vet estimated him as between 9mos and a year old. For awhile I thought maybe he was a chinese crested powder puff mix but several people have since commented that they thought he might be a havanese or a havanese mix. I've named him Gibson and have been working on his training issues. He came mostly housebroken but has had a few pee/poop accidents in the 3mos since we adopted him.
His coat is silky in some areas and a bit more coarse feeling on his back, but not thick or cottony at all, more hair like. He's 12in at the shoulders, 15in from bottom of neck to where the tail starts and he weighs 10lbs.
He's goofy and very, very smart. Jumps really high, figures out how to open the zipper on his soft sided crate/house, learned to open the pull out trash cabinet on the first day he was here! Likes lots and lots of attention, a very busy little boy. He was not socialized before I got him and is afraid of traffic, children, bikes, scooters, etc. so we have a lot of work to do. He gets along well with my almost 9yo airedale and they play a few times a day. Both are raw fed.
I'm hoping that there will be a picture attached to this post, LOL!
