Get two havs at the same time.
Seriously though, Linda is right. any puppy, is gonna be needy. you should plan to have at least a couple weeks off, so you can bond with the new puppy.
Havanese are a phenomenal breed, I can't imagine NOT having one, and I only have a 1/2 breed, lol. This pup is gonna need company. human is preferable.
I have two anatolians and one 1/2 hav. The three of them entertain each other while I'm at work. But my little guy is a certified therapy dog, and if I wanted to, I could bring him every day to work with me. He comes once a week, and he's always VERY excited to come with me. and when I come home from work, he's with me, right next to me, till I fall asleep at night. It's his nature.
doggy day care isn't a bad option. It'd be better if you had a neighbor that works from home or is retired, if the pup could hang with them.
I know of families where the mom was a stay at home mom, but then, due to the economy started to work again, half or full time, and the hav didn't take it well, as the dog was now left alone for hours at a time.
It's a tough choice, picking which breed is right for you and your family. choose wisely.
