Exclamation HELP...

Hello I am a new member and found this site while researching Havanese. I am the mom of 2 boys; a large lab boy age 8 and a small eskipoo age 9. I would love to get a new baby boy a havanese but am very worried how my eskipoo will handle it. He is VERY much a mommmy's boy and is jealous, not of others around me but of my husband and 22 year old son. He has never snapped or been aggressive but rather barks when they get too close. I do not want to slight the new baby but am so excited to think about that cute little face around the house. Has anyone ever encountered any thing like this and how do you think the new baby as well as my older baby would do. The lab is sooooo gentle and docile, he would welcome anybody or anything! Thanks for the help!

Welcome!! We have all havanese but one was VERY much a mommas girl. She was a little ticked off at us - but was fine with the little one. I am sorry but I cannot speak on how a larger dog would do = but you are in the right place to ask questions, someone will have an answer for you!!

Hi Laurie-Your little ones are so cute. Did your girl forgive you and how long did it take?

It took Lexi about a week or so to forgive me and look me in the eye - but she also has been pooping every so often in the house - she has done it about 4 times since Logan came home. I just have not caught her in the act yet to scold her. They get used to a new one pretty quickly.

I also would be concerned about bringing in a new pup.Your other dog needs to be submissive to you and not "claim"you as he does.He is dominating you...and if he continues on with that behavior,I think it could be bad.You just need to watch a few episodes of "the dog whisperer".......it kind of gives you new perspective and lets you see more from the dogs point of view.Then you can get your other dog under control first,in time you'll probably be able to bring a hav into your family.

Micki2much: I agree that you should get better control over your eskipoo. Eskimo Spitz and Poodle I'm guessing. Is he a small dog? I've attached a couple of pictures of Sam and my old Keesha when we first got Sam. Keesha was very good with him. But I never left them alone EVER. Accidents can happen, Sam was only 3 lbs and Keesha 95 lbs. If she sat on him by accident she could seriously hurt him. Keesha went to "Rainbow Bridge" a few months later. Your lab should also be watched closely, with a little puppy.

Thanks all! Well my concern was not really with my 117lb lab (except that yes accidents could happen). He is THE most gentle dog I have ever met! Children and dogs seem to always pick on him and he is always thinking it is fun! He is so happy all the time. It is my 15 lb dog (eskipoo) that is the "boss". He is 9, he has never snapped or went to bite he just likes to bark at my husband, son or Ozzie (the lab) if they get too much of my attention. If I continue he gets his feelings hurt and puts his back to me for a few hours!!!

LOL, Those pictures are so cute! My Hav Cooper would hang on my Bichons face, ears, tail, legs, anything he could get ahold of, but Lily is a very submissive 18lb dog. Lily and Cooper often play with my best friends 2 Corgies who are much more dominant. They don't put up with Cooper at all, but are always lovin on Lily. With their little puppy attitudes, I might be a bit leary of leaving a puppy alone with a more dominant and jealous acting dog.
