I would suggest waiting until Ella is at least a couple of years old, and has settled down. Right now, Ella is probably just STARTING to enter adolescence, which is a head-strong age for all breeds. Even though she has gotten along well with an adult rat terrier (a very tough breed) I don't think I'd trust ANY large breed puppy (and that's what Ella still is... a big puppy!) with a soft temperament, small breed puppy. If Ella pounced on a 3 lb. puppy, even in play, with NO intention to hurt it, she could snap it's back!
If you decide to go ahead with getting a Havanese puppy now, you really will need to commit to supervising them NON-STOP for quite some time. That said, I know of a number of adult Goldens who have younger Havanese "siblings", and they are a great match for each other! It just not be the best time right now.
