I too am new to the breed. My pup is 7 months old and not much for sitting on your lap. She is really daring and athletic. She can run, jump, walk on her hind legs, etc. and wants to get you to play all the time. She loves people so much that she can be quite annoying when we want to take a walk in a public place. She pulls toward anyone, male or female, and acts like they are her long lost friend. Of course even though I try to keep her walking, inevitably they stop, ask to pet her, and so it gets encouraged. If something drops, she gets to it in a flash and it's in her mouth. She shreds paper so I know she's a Havanese. Walking her is tough because she's a little crazy and wild and will sometimes cut in front. She is 7 lbs. and does not bite or bark, and doesn't cry when we leave her alone in her gated area. She is really very sweet but super active.
Anyway, she sounds a little like yours.
