Pick of the liter

Hello all! We'll we have first pick of the liter and we decided on a male. 3 to choose from. 2 black and white and one mostly white with sable markings around face and a spot on back. Help!!!! They are all cute. What should I consider, especially I hear that their coats change from what I have been reading. Is this true for all havs or just those with the gene?

Don't worry about color. Look for personality.

I agree that personality and temperament are more important than color. I went to the breeder planning on taking an almost solid black male but ended up taking Manny after seeing his personality. The solid black was extremely shy and reserved. He was also starting to silver so I don't think that he would have stayed black, but that didn't play into our choice as much as the personality differences.

Some days I think that shy and more reserved might be a good thing, especially when he's overly rambunctious (yesterday!!!), but I wouldn't trade him.

I told my breeder that I preferred a female. Once she got to know us, and the personalities of the puppies, she matched us up perfectly. We were in our early 60's at the time and she knew I was looking for a 'lap dog'... I certainly got one!

I say you'll know when you go see them. There will be one that stands out above the rest.

Another vote for personality. Don't pick on color but your lifestyle and the kind of dog personality you want. If you're working with a good breeder they will help you with this.

Thank you all!!! We'll we def are going male because we have too many females in house already says my husband. Always had male dogs. And yes I agree, personality. Can someone explain the color change of the havanese? That is what I am curious about. Read a little on the forum and is it a gene that one of parents have??? Thanks for all your help!!
