Our story.

My Lilly was purchased by my dad from a local breeder who had purchased a mom and her puppies from a Penn. breeder ( I figure it is a puppy mill). The Penn breeders name is John Esh and I haven't been able to find out anything about him other than the name of his 'farm' which is "Twin Maple" . Dad was told she was a Bichon Frise and her papers which are not AKC but ACA (I know is not reputable but he didn't) say she is a Bichon Frise BUT when you look and her and I have had 2 or 3 groomers and a AKC trainer tell me this also that she isn't a Frise but a Havanese. I went to the AKC standard for the Havinese and she measures right on the money. Her front legs are slightly shorter than the back her hair is only slightly wavy she has the springy walk and great temperament. I know that I can had a limited registration thru AKC but I am not ready to have her spayed she is 8 mths old now, just had her first heat in July and her adult coat is coming in. She was recently shaved because I couldn't get her matts out and the Petsmart groomer didn't want to fool with it. Soo we are waiting until she is pretty again to take more pictures.

Instead of soaped pictures since her hair is soo short could I just take pictures with her dry?

WOW I am long winded tonight sorry

wait I am confused what do you need the photos for? Or are you just wanting breeders to look at them?

Okay,
I know around here in Ohio with the Amish, designer breeds are popular. I know 2 people that have Havanese/Bichon mix. I don't know enough about Bichons to tell the difference though.

The bichons coat is curly like a poodle. How does the coat of the dog in the picture compare to the coat of your Havanese? It doesn't look to different from Lilly's.

Looks like the Havies hair is straighter. I can't wait to find out what breed Lilly is. Thanks for your help.

Sounds like you might have a Havanese on your hands. I would get some advice on the characterisitcs such as the measurements and the temperament. Pictures would be preferable that way you can really get some great advice from others on this Forum who would give the best advice on whether or not you have what you think you have. I would say based on what you have mentioned that you have a Havanese.

I am not sure what you are wanting? Since this is a puppy, it might still be too early to know if her front will be straight. Are you considering breeding a puppy that came from a puppy mill?
