Is my dog part Havanese?

This is Kessel. We got him from a rescue agency. They said they thought he was part shih tzu, but I have since then been told he looks like a havanese. To me, he does look like he could be part havanese but he doesn't seem to have many of the breed traits, although he is very sensitive.

What do you think? Does he look like he might have some havanese in him?

I don't know, he might. It's always hard to tell with a rescue. He's cute though! And you're welcome here either way

When someone told us he looked havanese I set up an email alert to tell me when there was any havanese at shelters or rescue orgs. Kessel is so amazing that we wanted another just like him. We ended up adopting a puppy from a Toronto shelter, and he is definitely 100% havanese. He's Coulson...

Kessel is a cute dog. Might be part Shih Tzu because of the underbite, which is not a Hav trait.

He looks like a big boy in the photos. How much does he weigh?

He is pretty big, about 25 pounds. I think part of his mix must be a bigger breed than a shih tzu or havanese.

Maybe he is a Tibetan Terrier mix?
