Zippy in Idaho introduces

Zippy is one pretty, sweet, loving, mellow and well socialized 10 yr old spayed Havanese. She is cream and champagne in color, with hints of gray and white and a coat that is on the curly side and cut quite short right now.

Zippy is house trained, easy going, affectionate, friendly, happy and gives the sweetest little kisses. Her little tail is always wagging, she makes warm, soft eye contact, and loves nothing better than to snuggle with you on the sofa.
And she seems to like men, getting all excited when her foster dad walks in the room! She gets along with other dogs and reportedly with cats and kids.

She politely eats from her own bowl and does she love to eat. Although she is a petite build she is obese and weighs 20 lbs. The goal in foster care is to get her down to about 13 svelte lbs. Walks are difficult for her as she labors with exertion, so right now they are slow and easy.

All in all Zippy is a pretty perfect little girl that needs (and deserves) a lot of TLC in her golden years and HRI is so happy to be able to start her on that path. Zippy is being fostered in ID.

Zippy would like to introduce Hats Off to Havanese Square made by Julie Jorgensen: "Grama Stitches" This is my version of a grama havanese headed to quilt class prepared!

Ebony in Texas introduces Dreaming Of Spring

Ebony is a 2 year old mix, and as you can see from her pictures, has a coat that is a very deep and beautiful black. Her fur is also wavy and soft.

Ebony has had little human contact or attention, so she is a very shy and timid girl but is very sweet and gentle. Her foster mom says though that even for the short time she’s been in foster care, she can see her slowly coming around and beginning to seek attention and affection. The most amazing part is, she dearly loves to curl up in the bed with her foster parents, and has decided that is the best way to sleep! She also loves to hang out in her crate, and willingly goes in when asked.

Ebony enjoys the company of other dogs, and is starting to show interest in what her sisters are doing. She hasn’t played with toys yet, but she did start to show interest in a chewy. Her foster mom knows that with a lot of love and patience, this sweet little girl will be just fine.

It will take time for Ebony to learn to trust, but she seems to be settling in and enjoying her foster home and family.
Ebony also enjoys her walks, although at first she wasn’t too sure about a leash. She loves the outside and being there with her foster mom and sisters, but is learning the inside is a great place too with all kinds of good food. And of course that soft bed to sleep at night is a perk for sure!

Ebony will need a home with a tall, secure fence as she’s an expert escape artist, and can scale a fence before you know it. When she’s ready for her forever home, a tall, secure fence will be a must.

Ebony is being fostered in Texas, and is pleased to introduce Hats Off to Havanese Square created by: Joelle Boatwright "Dreaming Of Spring"

I have a photo of Dusty sitting in a puddle that I used as a model for this. I first thought of putting her in a yellow rainhat, but after going through the fabric I had,this is what materialized.

Annie in Indiana introduces Go Clemson! Square!

Annie is a very sweet 3 year old Havanese. She was surrendered because of what appears to be episodes of seizure-like events. She weighs about 10-12lbs, and her foster mom says she is very calm, loving more than anything to be in a warm lap, hearing a gentle voice, and having a kind hand gently stroking her. She’d prefer to be carried 24/7 if she could talk her mom into doing that, but she happily settles for curling up next to you on a sofa or sit in a warm lap!

Much of her life has been in a kennel, so housebreaking is certainly a new adventure for Annie along with learning grass is a great place to potty! She’s learning stairs can take you to all sorts of great places, that a bed is a wonderful place to get comfy, and that toys are the best thing of all. Soft squeaky toys seem to be a favorite, and playing fetch with them is fun as well.

But Annie’s most favorite thing though is being a lap dog. In fact, once she thinks she’s walked long enough she’ll call it quits and ask to be picked up! She obviously has heard Havs are true people dogs and attention lovers!

She gets along with other dogs, cats and rabbits. She’s good with men, women and children. Because she is such a mellow, quiet dog, she’d do best with a dog similar in nature and would enjoy a calm buddy.

Her foster mom says she’s an amazing dog, and will work with her on housebreaking. Annie is going to be extensively assessed for what, if any, medical issues she may have going on. This sweet, cuddly, love-bug deserves the very best she can get.

Annie is being fostered in IN and is pleased to introduce Hat's Off to Havanese Square created by Amanda Brown- "Go Clemson!"

My inspiration was Clemson and sports. We relocated to SC as my husband took a job there and I am getting my masters there (hence the burnt orange coloring) Also who better to cuddle up and steal food while you are watching the games than the Neezers.

Cindy Lou introduce Hat's Off to Havanese (Havanese Royalty)

Every so often HRI gets a call about a special needs dog. This is a story about a very special one...and thank you Forum Members for all your support so that a little gal like this has a new leash on life!
Cindy Lou aka Vivi in PA

Vivi, whose new name was derived from superviviente (the Spanish word for "survivor") is a very special 6.6 pound, chocolate sable Havanese born on Dec.15, 2009. She has a congenital defect known as hydrocephalus.

This "water on the brain" prevents her fontanel from closing so she has what specialists have termed "the largest opening we've ever seen". This means her large soft spot, right up on top of her head, leaves her brain extremely vulnerable to trauma.

Vivi spent her first 4 months in a cage at a vet office down south, where she only had one little view forward out into the big world. She was advertised as available for adoption and not spayed when an alert Good Samaritan notified HRI Intake. Upon investigation it was obvious that Vivi needed to be rescued, evaluated and either given a chance at some semblance of a normal life or kindly let go.

Well, little Ms.Vivi has surprised many out here in the real world. She finds wind blowing in her face most delicious. And sunshine - well, she'd never been outside so the flickering shadows are still something to think about. Grass - it was too creepy to walk in but now she delights in the scents and checking out buttercups. Her tail now comes up and wags and she found her bark. She loves her puppy chow and took to playing with toys almost instantly. She is still happier when confined but is learning about space and not to be afraid. Her shyness is evident but improving. While somewhat delayed due to her history, she's making marvelous strides daily as she becomes socialized.

Vivi's head has to be protected but she also has to have supervised time to develop physically and do a little Havi RLH. Oh, it was difficult to let her go but we've taken in slowly and she's proved to have the typical Havie Velcro gene! Vivi has been checked from nose to tail and other than hydrocephalus she is healthy. Her vision is probably a bit compromised but she's compensating well.

On May 3rd Vivi visited the great neuro team at the UPenn's Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary School located in Philadelphia. While there she had an MRI which showed the severe extent of her condition. We still don't really know what Vivi's future might hold for her. The neurosurgeon says Vivi's prognosis is "guarded" and wanted to try several months of drug therapy (Prednisone and Omeprazole) before deciding whether or not a shunt would be indicated in her case. She continues to be happy, comfortable, and there have been signs of decreased swelling on her new meds. She is an active, feisty little pup now and loves live!

Vivi is being fostered in PA and is especially pleased to introduce Forum Quilt Hats Off to Havanese Square by Kara Craig Kaiser ---- 'Havanese Royalty",
My inspiration was from Queen Victoria's Havanese and the Animal Planet tidbit about them being dogs of 'royalty'

Touched...

Okay, so I'm creating these ads to celebrate all of us who have created these squares and all the wonderful things that the money raised can do...and then I read about that little pup above...and well geez...I just get all teary eyed.

I don't know about you, but I don't know what I would do without my two havanese kids...they are the light of my life...and inspiration for so much...as well as how I know all of you...

Just wanted to tell you how thankful I am to all of you and all of your support these past couple of years...and thank you for your generous contributions to the Quilt Project as well as supporting HRI.

And hey just for being you! You ARE AMAZING!

Participating in this event with all of you has even brought my daughter and I closer. This is the second year she has designed a square, and she is very, very excited to be part of this project. Thank you Julie for your tutoring and all that you have done to make this Quilt happen once again this year.

More affection that I can express,

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Tinsel in Maryland introduces Little Dutch Girl

Meet Tinsel, a recent puppy mill breeder dog and survivor who needed a full-time foster mom to help her learn how wonderful life should be for a 2.5 year old Havanese. She has already begun to make progress, in baby steps.

While still skittish and shy, she has been leaving the crate on her own, more and more each day, seeking the other canines and yes, the humans, companionship (although still at a distance)

Tinsel's coat is gorgeous, a nice texture with many different colors dispersed throughout it- grey, black and silver, with tan on her ears and legs. She is going to be beautiful when her coat grows out. She weighs about 16 lbs and has the longest legs...

She is sleeping through the night in her crate, and seems to have housetrained quickly.

Tinsel is proud to introduce Hats Off To Havanese Square created by
Designed by: Jackie Tellier, mother to Sophie
Sewn by: Mary Jane Tellier, grandmother to Sophie
Title: Little Dutch Girl

Inspiration: I live in one of the Dutchest areas of the US. Holland MI. has an annual Tulip Time festival every spring. I was born in Zeeland MI., and all my ancestors are of Dutch heritage. My mother-in-law (who lives north of Zeeland) has an embroidery machine and is an excellent seamstress. I found a digital pattern that looked similar to my Sophie, so I knew I had to do a Dutch hat square for the quilt!

Jackson in Texas introduces A Windy Day's Walk at the Marina

Born early February, Jackson was purchased at a pet store by a loving family who didn’t realize the problems many of these animals can have. He is undergoing tests to identify a possible heart defect and as we learn what, if anything, is going on we’ll update his page.

Watching Jackson run and play, anyone would have a hard time thinking he might have a problem. Besides being very active, inquisitive, and alert he has personality plus.

As young as he is, he seeks affection as well. Jackson is quick to flop on his back for tummy rubs and then dashes off to investigate a toy. He has multiple toys strewn all over the floor and goes from one to another, but it seems he thinks climbing on a small empty box is a lot of fun too.

Jackson has one small stuffed yellow and orange lion toy that he loves to carry from room to room. Watching him shake it with a tiny growl brings a big smile. He loves to run outside, loves grass, and housebreaking is going well too.

He’s a very smart little guy and seems to ‘get it’. He will occasionally stop what he’s doing and stare at you as if he’s sizing you up! He dearly loves and craves attention but watch your shoelaces!

Jackson is a plump ball of soft fur and just plain adorable. If spirit, fight, and spunk count for anything, this little man will do just fine.

*Update: Jackson’s 2 week post-op check could not have brought better news. He no longer has a murmur, is gaining weight, and his surgeon feels he will lead a normal, happy, Havanese life. He continues to amaze all of us with his antics and his love of life, people, and all things in general. Watching a little puppy go through such a significant surgery on a Wednesday, and on Friday is back home hoping to heck he will be allowed to run with the other dogs (that did NOT happen!) was amazing! He is growing, even though still a puppy, and has wormed his way into the heart of his foster mom (and he knows it!). Stay tuned as we watch this little miracle continue to grow.

Jackson is being fostered in Texas and as a special needs puppy is just pleased as punch to introduce a beautiful quilt square created for the Hats Off to Havanese Quilt by Sheri Davis--"A Windy's Day's Walk at the Marina"

We like to walk down at our Oak Harbor Marina,even on windy days to look at the beautiful boats,hear the birds and smell the sea air. It's like a mini vacation to another culture.

Bo and Jackie in SC introduce Santos Goes to Mardi Gras

Bo and Jackie are a lifelong pair and they really would love to find their new forever home together as the Dynanic Duo. They would be so happy in a home where someone was home during the day to give them lots of attention along with belly and ear rubs.

Bo is an attentive, loving, snuggly, happy 7 yr old boy who came into HRI with his lifelong friend, Jackie. At 20 pounds, he's on a food plan to slim down a little, he's loving green beans, peas, and carrots mixed into his kibble. Getting a treat sure gets him excited!

He happily greets anyone who comes over, loves everyone, and waits patiently for his ear rubs. He snuggles by resting his head on you and it makes us laugh every time! This is a sweet boy who likes to cuddle on the couch for a nap and curls up with Jackie in their dog bed at night. Bo is house trained and gets so excited to see his harness and leash, that means a walk! He's gets along great with his foster sister and brothers and had a cherry eye repaired since he's been with HRI.
He and Jackie would love to go to a forever home together, they're the best of friends.

Jackie is a sweet, happy 7-year old girl who loves to eat, play for a bit, and then have a long rest on the back of the sofa so she can see what's going on. She came to HRI with her lifelong friend, Bo, and would be happiest if they could stay together. She's just right at 13 pounds and very cute in her short haircut but when her hair grows out she'll be a beauty!

She gets very excited and jumps to show everyone how excited she is. She's house trained, enjoys being close to her foster family, loves to chase toys in the house, and shares a big, comfy bed with Bo at night. This girl just soaks up all the love and attention that comes her way and will give lots of kisses right back! She had a cataract removed since she's been with HRI.

She would be happiest in a forever home with her friend Bo, they'd be thrilled to go together and will give so much love and joy right back!

Bo and Jackie are being fostered between GA and SC and are so excited to introduce Hats Off To Havanese Quilt Square by Kim Theriot-Smith, entitled: "Santos Goes To Mardi Gras"

My inspiration came from the plumed hats worn by the officials in the Krewe of Rex, King of Carnival. Mardi Gras in New Orleans has grown to include our canine friends as the Krewe of Barkus now rolls annually through our streets of the French Quarter. As Santos is not a rescue he wouldn't be eligible to be King,but surely he would make a handsome Captain.Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!!!

Willow in AZ introduces Havanese Botique from the Hats Off to Havanese Quilt

Willow was picked up as a stray running in an Arizona park. She is a young, independent girl that loves to go for walks and rides in the car. She is a typical Havanese ballerina - dancing on her hind legs when she sees the leash coming out and knows she is going somewhere!

She gets along with other dogs and is extremely sweet and loving once she gets to know you. A great watchdog - another Havie trait! She is housetrained and uses a doggy door.

Happy and healthy, about 13 lbs, Willow will be looking for a home to call her own, very soon. This little girl is so pleased to introduce Hats off to Havanese Quilt Square created by Marie Krier "Havanese Boutique"...

"Sissy loves her dresses and likes to get all dressed up."

Teddy Bear introduces The Western Boys Block!

Teddy Bear is doing great in his foster home. He is a big boy at about 22 pounds. Teddy is a puppy who is very easy to love because of his sweet personality. He loves to be groomed and although his coat is very short now, he is always eager to get on the grooming table for his grooming "massage"!

His canine sibling in his foster home came from a puppy mill and had never learned to play.

Having Teddy Bear as a teacher, she has learned to play and is thoroughly enjoying the experience. He loves to go for walks and does well on the leash. He is completely potty trained and actually taps his foster mom on her leg when he needs to go outside. Teddy is a fantastic dog but needs a great deal of attention.

Teddy Bear is being fostered in Florida and is pleased to introduce:
Paige Thomas's square, "The Western Boys"...

(I know my four boys would love to dress up and play Cowboys and Indians.)
