Cool Pink nose blue eyes

Hello, I am new to this site and a new owner of my first Havanese puppy, at least that is what I was told she was. I have searched the internet and through out this forum and cannot find anything on a havanese with pink pigment and blue eyes. I took her to the vet as soon as I got her and had her checked out I was told that she is very healthy and indeed was a Havanese but he(my vet) had not seen one with blue eyes or pink pigmentation he said she may have some albino in her. My question is I know she is not up to standards for the breed from what I have read but are their albino havanese. All the reading I have done on this breed tells me she is, I would like to get a DNA test on her just so I could know for sure. I am posting her picture but you cannot see her blue eyes because of the flash. Her nose, eyes and even lips are all pink. She is cream in color. I love her so much and would not change her at all. No I did not get her from a registered breeder so please do not scold me for that, when I came across her she was cold, dirty and flea infested with so many flea bites she had scabs, I could not leave with out taking her, if I could have taken her sister I would have too. Her name is Bella she was 8 weeks when I got her she is now 14 weeks. My profile pic is when she was 8 wks the other 2 are at 14.

She is adorable and has a beautiful coat! She is lucky she has you. Every dog deserves a good home.The breeder should be shut down! I hope the other pups found good homes too. I don't know enough about genetics to tell you why her nose and eyes are what they are. I wounder if chocolate havanese genes ever come out pink? Did she come with papers? Did you see the mother and father? Did you call the breeder and ask why she has a pink nose and blue eyes? Well again I'm happy you have your new baby girl she looks like a sweetie pie.

Thank you for your reply, she is not papered and I did not see the mom and dad ( I met this lady in a parking lot of all places). When I came across her (by chance), the lady only had her and her sister and when I asked what kind of dog she was I was told she was a Havanese. I had never heard of the breed before, her sister looked exactly like her and just a bit smaller so I had no clue what they were to look like. The lady claims she was wanting to move to another country and needed to find homes for all her dogs 4 pups and 4 adults, so I am to assume she was a back yard breeder. The puppies looked cold and dirty and I couldn't leave her so I bought her unexpectedly, brought her home bathed her (in dawn) and called the vet to have her checked out. I started researching the breed and like I said could not find anything on her pigment. The only thing the lady told me at the time was that her mom and dad were sable in color and these to were the only ones that came out looking like they did, truthfully all I could think about was giving her a warm home and I took my chances with her health. I do plan on having her spayed as soon as she is old enough but I would like to know exactly what breed she is just so I can say when asked.

What a sweetheart. I am almost certain she is at least part albino. Ask the vet how to protect her eyes and skin -- I know lack of pigment can be a real problem.

She looks like a little Valentine card!
