Want to adopt another Havanese

Gizmo is now 8 months old. One thing we have noticed that he gets very lonely at times. My wife and I think he will be very happy if he has a companion. I rather get a Havanese from a shelter or recue agency instead of a breeder so we can make a difference in his/her life. We don't really care on gender, color age but would prefer that age is close to Gizmo's if possible.

Please let me know if you know of a dog who is looking for a good home. We are willing to travel within a driveable distance.

When recommending, please note that we have a 4 year old son but he is VERY VERY good with dogs and loves Gizmo...well they both love each other

Something about our house. We own a house and have a big yard for our babies to run around. Gizmo stays inside the house at all times except when its time to play or to take care of business. I am sure our family of 4 will be a good household for the someone who is looking to be adopted.

Thanks a bunch.

That's what I would recommend, too!

We got a playmate recently for our 4 yr. old Hav and they are having a blast! We can't believe how much they love each other!

have you seen the recent posts of pups in Memphis, TN? I don't know where you are located, but that might be a good solution for all

In addition to Havanese Rescue and the pups in Memphis at sunny Meadows Rescue, there is an organization based in Ohio called Havanese Angel League Organization (HALO) based out of Livonia, MI.

They have three Havs available for adoption at the moment See Petfinder at http://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelter_id=MI362

You can also go to their Facebook page for more information. It's an open group.

At least one foster family is raising a litter of puppies. http://www.facebook.com/groups/25525...s/25525703631/

Good luck in your search.

Adopted!!! But have some issues. Please advise

Thanks all for your quick response. We got a tip about a Havanese/Maltese named Joey this afternoon from a rescue shelter and we decided to visit him. We all fell in love with him and adopted him right away. He had a long coat and big brown eyes. However, he looked very scared and hesitant. Since his hair was all matted we had to give him a trim right away...sniff sniff.

Anyway, I will try to attach some pictures. The one with black nose is Gizmo and the one with brown is Joey.

In the meantime, I need some advice. Gizmo is trying hard to play with him but Joey does not care about Gizmo at all. Infact, he bark and growls at him. I know this may be territorial issue but is there a way to resolve this?

Also, I noticed some blood in his pee. What could be the reason. We think it may be some type of urinary infection but hope it is not something huge.

We will appreciate your adivce on the two issues I listed above.

First of all, Joey is adorable. Do you know anything about his background? When I picked up my Cassie (she was a foster that I ended up keeping), she was 2 1/2 years old. She came in my house and peed on the couch when the other dogs approached her. She had no idea how to play with them or interact with them. The boys tried to play with her and she was not nice about it. It took a few weeks, but one day she broke down and started running and playing with them. Now, she is the one to initiate play. She LOVES her brothers! I think you need to be patient and be sure to supervise their interactions. I suspect with a little time, they will be fine.

Congratulations! He is adorable! As far as the blood in hi urine, he probably has a urinary infection. also, When we brought our Havanese home our older dog growled and snarled at him. We slowly introduced them with supervised "play time" and now they are the best of friends! I am sure things will work out fine! good luck!
