petfinder again!

I have been looking for another puppy to complete our family and for a companion for Havanna. I just found this listed on petfinder:

http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/dis...petid=10932142

I've emailed the rescue group, but haven't heard anything back yet. This is in Independence KS, which isn't that far from where I live (about 90 miles). The hubby said we could go look at her this weekend if she's still available. Does anyone know how two females would get along? I was told by a breeder that females have a tendency to have more problems together.

Michelle

We have 3 females and they all get along fine. Depends more on the personality. Our Bonnie, prefers to be queen and left alone. She seldom "plays with the others" She prefers to watch tv with us and have her tummy rubbed and eat bon bons...lol...Our other 2 girls play together and get along well. Susan

Hi Michelle. Bee is so cute and good for you for looking into adoption. I have two females and they get along great. We also have a male, everyone plays together.

Hmmmm, I recognise that name Kameyrns Rescue. I think someone was asking if they might be a puppy mill. If you look at all her dogs, they are all "young" and many appear to be puppies and all of them are the hot sellers! That's pretty suspicious for a rescue. Most dogs in recue are mutts and mixed breeds and are older dogs that have been thrown away.

Someone thought that Kameryns might be a puppy mill? I wondered that myself, actually. I was just waiting to hear back from them to see if they'd let us come visit... no puppy mill will, of course. Makes me sad and angry if they are...poor puppies. I have looked at Havanese Rescue, too. I've been looking (often!) at Beasley, who's still in foster care. I saw where someone else on here had applied months ago for a pup there, though (I think it was one of the gentleman from Canada??). I don't have that kind of patience!!!

If they are a broker they may still let you visit. A broker just gets their pups from puppymills and then ups the price. Be careful, I've heard way too many sad stories from people who bought puppymill pups cuz they fell in love. Your best bet for longterm good health and happiness is a seek out a quality breeder or deal with a reputable rescue. I'm not sure but I would think each adoption from Havanese Rescue would be a different story just depending on the condition of the dog when it comes into rescue and how well suited the applicant is! Good luck finding a great companion for Havanna!
I just got Rufus a little brother, well, I didn't get him yet but soon! I've been waiting since Christmas, but it will be well worth the wait!

Don't tell my McKenna and Sedona that. They get along great. They are 11 months apart.

I have to agree with the others-watch where you get the dog from-a lot of the dogs that are in Havanese Rescue are ones that were either obtained from a pet shop-BYB-or puppy mill. If you are unable to get a pupster from a good breeder then please visit HRI web-site and look at our dogs.

Just remember that HRI takes a lot of time to foster their dogs-helping them become the great dogs we know Havanese are-they are very careful about placing their dogs-I know it seems like a lot of "red-tape" and jumping through hoops and may take a while to get a dog but it's well worth the wait.

I fell for a pup from this "rescue" back in Dec. I thought there'd be this big, long process getting a dog from again..a "rescue". I emailed about her, she gave me a brief, generic description about her, and right away told me she could meet me half way that weekend (she's about 4 hours from here). Didn't want to know more about me, or anything.
I check the site all the time. And always cute, little maltese, havs or yorkies. Never a mixed dog that isn't "designer dog". Someone else who had dealt with her said she must be a broker..if not a mill.
