Well, I was told there was a suspicion that our new boy, Sammy, might have some Yorkshire in him and I have to admit my surprise at just how tiny he was when we first saw him yesterday. He weighs 8 lbs, and I know there are many Havs that weigh the same or even less at almost 8 mths. of age, but with Ricky being 15 lbs at the same age, I'm just not used to Sammy's size! lol
I've been reassured that there are Havanese that are this small, with this type of hair as well... it's straight and thin whereas Ricky's is very thick and wavy. I wonder what they'd both look like sopping wet!!! Probably a lot more alike than not! LOL
I was, maybe still am, a little concerned about having such a small dog around. There's the fear he will get stepped on and might be more fragile than I'd like, but that could just be worrying for nothing. I am tall though and have big feet!!
Sammy is such a cutie and very sweet. He's not shy and has been playing with Ricky, though not quite as much as Ricky would like. Ricky will teach him a few things, I'm sure... like playing fetch. Sammy is playful and seems very comfortable in his new surroundings already. For a pup that wasn't used to sleeping in a crate, he climbed into his new one here 3 times today for a nap!
I did find out that the Hungarian breeder where Sammy's parents are also raise Yorkshire Terriers, so maybe something happened at one point... I dunno. I'm not overly concerned about that since I didn't expect a 100% Havanese, nor did I pay for one, with his previous owners simply charging us what they paid to get him.
Maybe once he blows his puppy coat, he'll have that Hav look a little more. He's definitely on the petite side!
