Hello everyone!

Hi there! New girl in town! I foster pups for a local mixed breed rescue. Recently our rescue saved 9 dogs from a puppy mill. Upon having one of the dogs vetted, a sweet 3yo Havanese, it was discovered she was pregnant. My family is adopting one of the sweet females from this litter. Her name is Harriet, or "Hattie" as we like to call her. She is about 12 weeks old. Things are going really well! Aside from some tearing, she seems really healthy. I never thought I'd fall in love with a toy breed, but she is spectacular! I cannot wait to share this experience with you all. I'm sure I will learn so much here!

She's absolutely adorable! But if I had to guess, I'd guess she is a Havanese/Cavalier cross. She really has a Cavalier face! Cavaliers are wonderful dogs too, so don't worry about it if that's what she is. It will be interesting to see how she develops as she matures.

In any case, welcome to the forum! You sure have a cutie there... glad you're enjoying her. Oh, and a forum rule is that we needs LOTS of pictures!!!

Thanks Karen! I was wondering if she might be "Cavanese". It will be interesting to watch her grow. In either case, she is wonderful with my children and other pets. Such a delight to be around. I hope to do some therapy dog or agility work with her too. Hattie and I will be learning lots together.
Anyone know any good trainers or places for puppy kindergarten in the central Ohio area?

That's so funny you said that Karen - when I was younger I had two cavaliers - one tri color and the other blenheim....Hattie's coloring and facial features are very similar to that of my tri-color Cavalier....she is totally gorgeous - more photos :-)

Welcome ZooMama and Hattie. She is a cute little one and who cares what she is, as she's adorable. Love the tricolor. It will be interesting to see how she looks as she matures. Best of luck to all of you.

I actually LOVE Cavaliers, and would have seriously considered one, if it weren't for the health problems in the breed. I'm not a fan of designer crosses, but this is a case where a cross might be a very good thing! And it's not like you have to worry about getting bad traits from either side... other than the health issues of pure bred Cavs, there's nothing not to love. They are beautiful, sweet as can be, and extremely trainable.

If I were going to adopt, I'd love a cross like that!!!
