Amy- I don't know if he's a Hav, but he sure is cute. Honestly, I've met so many mixes that look like a Havanese. Two days ago I was walking Maddie and met a lady who I was sure had a Havanese. Nope. She said it was an "American LhaMalShi" (not sure of the spelling, but that's what it sounded like). Huh? She said it was a "very rare breed....a cross between a lhasa, maltese, and shih-tzu." She said it was an "official, recognized breed". Not sure what she meant, but when I was growing up, we just called them mixed breed or cute mutts. She paid alot of money for her designer dog, and I have to say, it didn't have a great temperament. When Maddie did her usual front down, butt in the air routine to play, the dog just growled. The lady said the dog wasn't "friendly". Duh.
The dog didn't have the temperament of most Havanese, but it definitely looked like a Havanese.
