Course coat

Does anyone here have a Hav with a course coat? I'd like to see some photos.

If you do, has he/she always been that way, or did it change and become course as an adult?

what do you mean by course?
Most of the top part of Tillie's back is 'frizzy' compared to the rest of her, I just use a super good conditioner on it and it seems to help.

Nah, not frizzy. I don't know how to describe it, but it seems more thick and it has a different texture (makes it not as soft). I'm at a loss for how to describe it, but that's the best I can think of.

Angie, since you're describing a coat that's not typically seen in the Havanese breed, and you say you're at a loss for how to describe it, you might post a photo of your dog and perhaps others might recognize similarities and post pictures, if that's what you're needing

Angie, I think what you may be describing is a genetic trait more responsible breeders are trying to rid . . ."short haired" Havanese. Sometimes the trait can present as a more course, wiry coat.

If so . . .the fact the breeder you're considering KNOWS her bitch carries the gene but is still breeding her anyway . . .would be enough to cause me to consider a more responsible breeder. However, if you're still set on considering this breeder, a search on this forum for "shorthair" should yield more on the subject, and maybe photos.
