New puppy, but is he Havanese?

Well....I went in Petland as I have many, many times to look at puppies.
Knowing full well it isn't be best choice for a puppy.
But it happened, I fell in love with a little guy and could not leave without him.
Sold as pure breed Havanese, but as I began to look pictures and read the standards, he doesn't look too much like a Havanese.
His ears stand up more like another breed.
Any comments would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, puppies sold in pet shops do not come from reputable breeders. They either come from back yard breeders (who may or may not know what they're doing or what medical history their dogs have) or they come from puppy mills. You can have a look here if you like: http://www.petshoppuppies.org/

You'll never know if your pup is a purebred nor what health issues run in it's family, but hopefully he will be a healthy dog and live a long and happy life.

Good luck to you and please visit other parts of the forum too if you want to read up on many other topics!

He's VERY cute! Congrats! It's very hard to tell how much his ears are standing up since he's looking up at you...more pictures please?

very cute. looks a bit like a yorkie hav mix. a yorkanese? How old is he? his ears could still fall.

Good luck with your little pet store rescue. We all know it is not politically correct to buy from a pet store ...but it happens, and you know what... Cuba is no longer a pet store puppy. He is yours! welcome to the forum.

There is a giant flea market near me that sells some designer dogs (unfortunately including wolf hybrids) and one of the common ones is a chorkie (chi x yorkie) and he looks just like them.

My cousins had a 1/4 wolf 3/4 lab when I was a kid. It was a great dog! LOL Although it looked a little scary, more wolf-looking than lab.

Your pup could be a Hav...looks like the ears are just flopping up, Roscoe's did this before they had more heavy hair on them. Maybe if you post some more pics we could tell better!

Wow! What a great site to be able to send people to when they are contemplating a pet store puppy. Thanks for the link, Marj!

Rosie's ears stood up as a puppy. Did they give you papers? But it really doesn't matter, you fell in love with him and now he's your special furbaby. Good luck and post more pictures.
