Is This Dog a Havanese?

I was cleaning some bookmarks off my computer, a few were old petfinder listings, and what the heck, decided to look around a little. Bumped into this one - they say Bichon mix, but really looks like Hav to me:

Still not sure it's the right time for me, I was planning to re-evaluate next year, and I'm also not sure about a puppy mill Hav, as much as I like the idea of rescuing...

Geeze, it does look a lot like a hav to me. But, like a bichon mix too..... Now isn't that the kind of answer you're looking for. One that's strong and decisive! lol

I couldn't really tell. There are so many dogs with similar looks once you add in the mixes.

From the photo, it looks like his topline rises towards the rump, like a Hav. But photos can be deceiving.

Looks a LOT like Cooper, my hav. And not much at all like Daisy, my bichon mix.

she's cute, either way, and I'm sure will be cuter once her coat grows in. I'm still bent on not doing potty training with a new dog until I've got a long stretch of good weather ahead, so I probably won't go for this little girl, but I have to admit I thought about it. The fact that she is a 10 month mill or auction rescue with probably no training yet and likely poor socialization definitely makes me hesitate, but I expect she's got applications on her already. I'm still set on a Hav, but every time I see commercials for the ASPCA or the rescue shows on Animal Planet, I feel like "how can I not do a rescue..." .... and yet it's such a hit or miss unknown with temperament, health issues, etc.

There do not seem to be in Havs in need of rescuing in my area (oregon). I may have to find a breeder. My other 2 dogs are rescues, so I don't feel too badly about looking for a well bred Hav.
