Thanks for the responses! I'm hoping for that elusive love connection, to be honest. I don't know if that's the best way to choose a dog, but that's kind of how I operate. Emotional, not particularly rational, but that doesn't always serve me well.
I don't think any of these puppies has a problem or questionable temperament, I think they are all very playful and sweet, it's more trying to determine how they will differ from each other as adult dogs in terms of personality tendencies. I'm wondering if pretty much any well bred Hav would be a great companion and learn to adapt to our environment, as Geri pointed out. I am not really getting a definitive yes or no from the breeder on which dog might be better for me, though she thinks I would do fine with the one that is probably going to be available for me. The fact that I may not have a choice between several dogs from this litter could be factoring in here, too, and if I feel unsure on meeting them, the only thing I can do is wait for the next litter, or move on. Which would be a bummer. Not to mention my husband would not be happy I dragged him on an all day road trip - lol!
I chose my yorkie on kind of a whim, I didn't look at any other dogs, and while I loved her to pieces her whole life, in retrospect I didn't know what I was getting into, and she probably was not the best fit for me, technically. That was possibly because of the breed, which I didn't research before getting her. I still don't have any regrets, but I'm hoping to get a better match this time to make it a little easier on myself. I'm really glad I stumbled across the happy Havanese. I do think this breed is perfect for us.
