Red face New To The Hav World

Hello! My name is Courtney- and I'm so glad I found this forum! I was turned-on to it by a reference I contacted about our breeder. We are anxiously awaiting the birth of our new Havanese Puppy- any day now! I'm assuming we will be able to bring him/her home somewhere in the first 2 weeks of June. We just had to put our 13 year old beagle/pointer mix down- so sad! I have 3 daughters, and he was my only "boy". I started researching breeds a while ago, when we first realized that his health was slipping quickly. I came across the Havanese, and instantly knew this was the breed for us. We adopted our other dog from the SPCA, and he was already grown, so this will be my first time potty-training a puppy...so glad there's so much information on here! I just wanted to introduce myself, and say thanks for all the great threads! Looking forward to being able to post photos of our new little one soon!

Hey Courtney and Sorry to hear about your 'boy' and how wonderful that a Hav pup will come along and help healing your hearts. You are lucky you found this forum before you bring your puppy home. I bet you will be glued to your PC to inhale all the info you can get. Lots of decisions: potty training w/ or w/o pads, food, harness/collar, etc. Take your time and use the search button and feel free to ask your own questions if you don't find the right topic. Where do you live? Hopefully near other members, that you could meet in person. It's a lot more fun!

Courtney! You know a smart person who referred you here. I know you miss your first doggy, but the Havanese is a great choice.

I would recommend pee pads to start . . . we wanted to train Jackson to go outside with our lab (in the dead of icy winter), and if I had to do it over again, I would have tried the pads inside until he was older - he went three times as much as the lab at first. Potty training doesn't have to be as hard as I made it!

I'm sure you will be taking lots of photos once your pup is born so that all of us here can get a "puppy fix."

We live just north of Dallas, TX. Our girls are 6, 4, and 20 months, too. Like I don't have enough to do...I need to add a puppy in to the mix! That's why we wanted to find a good breeder that would be having a litter now, though...so that we could bring one home right after school gets out, and have all summer to work with/train it. Looking forward to that day!

Hi Courtney! Mimi and I live in Garland! Maybe we'll get to meet your puppy soon! We're relatively new members and just love all the great advice and understanding from all the forum members.
