Smile Excited to join the group!!

Hi all! This is the first forum I have ever joined so forgive me as I am partially computer illiterate! I am new to the Havanese breed. I have a 10 month old named Bella who is such a joy! I have had Shelties for the past 24 years and although I love that breed, decided to leave the dog hair behind, and after much research, get a non shedding sweet little Havanese instead. I couldn't be happier. What an amazing breed! I will be looking for some advice shortly for a couple "problem" areas.

Welcome to another computer illiterate (I'm also one) and Bella. Once you figure it out, we need photos!

Welcome!!

We had a Husky mix for 16yrs. My wife wasn't all that enthused about getting another dog but if I insisted it had to be non shedding. That was one of the primary reasons we got Skye. As you said we "couldn't be happier". I'm sure Bella will continue to amaze and astound you in the future.

Welcome to the forum!

I don't do Facebook or Instagram or Twitter or anything else, so this is my only guilty pleasure social media outlet. That's why I am always asking people to post pictures of their sweet dogs! If you access the forum from a computer, just drag and drop your photos in the field below the box in which you type.

My DH is allergic to most dogs, including many of the so-called "hypoallergenic," but he doesn't react to Havanese. The thing I have learned about the term "non-shedding," however, is that it doesn't mean you won't have dog hair everywhere! We brush and comb Shama regularly, and our clothes and furniture constantly have her hair on them. We don't mind, because we love Shama and her long coat, but that was a surprise to me ...

Yes I like the non-shedding part of the breed. That was something I wanted in my next dog when I lost my beloved corgi. I got tired of shaving my fleece tops.

What kind of dogs did you have to shave?

Welcome!!!

This is a wonderful forum because it's full of such good advice from knowledgeable Havanese and mixed-Havanese owners. The ONLY way I survived the puppy-stages and ended up with a well mannered and housebroken dog was due to this forum.

This website is old, not maintained (my understanding) and it's a bit clunky but you'll learn the ins and outs after a while.

I use to have trouble attaching photos and learned to downsize my pictures to about 1500 pixels or less on one side and save as JPG or for the WEB. If you taking iPhone pics you probably won't have any problem. I typically use a camera and process the pics from the camera and those can be very large.
