We chose a Havanese for all the usual reasons. Small, easily picked up, no shed, adorable, etc. What we got exceded our expectations, although being older this time through the puppy trials was exhausting. Our last puppy was 11 years ago, & he was a perfect puppy, literally. This little girl was somewhat preoccupied with figuring out her new world, & although confident, she was cognizant of her size & showed caution when warranted, like being out to do business at night. She still, at almost 9 months, becomes hyper alert to danger outside at night.
What we have realized about her vs all the other dogs we have raised & loved, is besides being relentlessly happy, with a joy for life, she has never exhibited any aggression with food, toys, her space, or handling by us or strangers like the vet. She has always been happy with new people & kids, & tolerates without resistance nail trimming, hair trimming, clippers etc. She is happy to give kisses when we are done with whatever needed to be done. She is a real sweetie, that’s for sure, & did I mention she’s adorable?! Saw a fridge magnet today that said, ‘When God made Havanese, He was just showing off’
