Pictures of Romeo

I named him Romeo, actually my dad picked out the name because he picked out every pet name and I couldn't think of a good one (Carlos sounded good but its the name of our neighbors Havanese). Anyway, he learned his name and is very smart. My maltese is in one of the pics with my mom holding them both. They get along pretty good now.

His name is Romeo. Purebred Havanese. I bought him at a pet store. 9 CH in his pedigree. He is 4 months old.

P.s.-how much teeth do they have usually at this age? He only has like 6? Should he have more?

Welcome to the forum what a cutie! I have a maltese and (2) havanese too Maybe he is just in a state where he lost all his puppy teeth and his adult teeth are coming in?

He's a cutie. Izzy had lots of teeth when she came home with us at 9 weeks. Maybe he lost his baby teeth?

Hi and welcome, Chris. Your new baby is adorable! I love the name Romeo. He and your Malti are so sweet.

I am curious, how do you know about Romeo's pedigree if he comes from a pet shop? Did you meet or speak to his breeder? Who is the breeder? I love to hear where all the pups come from, partly because I'm so curious, but mostly because I learn more about the Havanese this way, what health tests some breeders do and others don't, what other kinds of Havs they raise.

I'm surprised to hear about Romeo only having 6 teeth at his age, though! How long was he at the pet shop before you bought him?

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

Romeo was in the pet shop for 2 months of his life ( in a cage and never let out ) The interesting fact is I would never buy a dog from a pet store as generally their are problems! His pedigree says he came from a breeder in Missouri, with the breeders names listed, and states he has 9 CH in his bloodlines, listing all the names of the dogs. It does not say AKC but some other organization on it. To me, I love him and thats all that matters!

On the subject of his teeth-he may actually have more as I have not counted. He has a vet appt today at 4 PM. He has had all of his shots. I will let you know what they say.

I have no doubt you love little Romeo, he is adorable! You might want to check out other threads here and in the "Rescue" section and see that it is most likely he comes from a puppy mill. Knowing that, knowing that you have no guarantees about his pedigree and information about health/genetic makup, you will realize you may have a puppy more prone to some health issues. It's just the way pet shops work. No reputable breeder anywhere will ever have a pet shop sell their puppies and the fact that this "breeder" comes from Missouri is a huge red flag, since that is pretty much the capital of puppy mills in the U.S.

I'm not saying this to upset you, Chris. Really! Romeo may be just fine and live a long, healthy life. I just think it's important that more people learn just what "papers" really are, and that organizations other than the AKC are not always good, regulated ones.

If you were not given the name of his breeder and the full registered names of all those champions in Romeos line and given no proof that proper health tests, such as CERF (for the eyes) and patella/hip tests (posted at ofa.org) where you could check on all those relatives, then there is no guarantee whatsoever and he does not, in fact, have what they say he has in his line. They show so-called "vets" who sign health papers, but again... it's all a farce.

NOT that that makes him a puppy you don't want! My reason for pointing some of these things out is only for education and to hopefully make others aware that pet shops do not sell dogs from reputable kennels and with full health testing done. Some, very few, pet shops will sell dogs from shelters which is fantastic. There is nothing wrong with an "unpurebred" at all. But the vast majority of shops well........ one just needs to be very careful.

Romeo is no doubt very much a Havanese and he is a sweetie pie! I look forward to hearing more about you and your two pups as well as seeing more pics.

Chris,

Romeo is adorable as is your Maltese. I hope Romeo has a great check up at the vet's and I am guessing he is just losing his baby teeth.

Congrats on your new pup Romeo Chris. I hope he will be happy and healthy for many years to come.

We always cringe just a little when someone purchases a puppy from a petshop around here as it is such a huge risk and their backgrounds are so sad....but I know it happens all the time as people are not aware of it. As you go around on the forum and learn more about the havanese breed you'll find out more and more information and then I bet you'll either feel really lucky Romeo is healthy or really sad that you didn't know ahead of time. I wish you the healthy outcome.
