I agree with you. That is why it is so important that Havanese Forum serves as an educational site to further the knowledge base about Havanese (I learn something new almost every day on HF), guard against unethical breeders, and maintain the high standards of the Havanese breed.It is my opinion that the people posting on this forum are just regular people and are not experts of any kind.
The better and only reference for accurate information on Havanese is HCA.We read what's on the AKC site and possibly assume that's accurate.
Your puppy may end up at 9 lbs. as an adult. It is really hard to tell at this point. We have several 9 lbs. adult Havanese on the Forum right now. But the HCA is silent on what the weight of a Havanese should be. I did post the entire HCA Havanese standard on HF last week to clear up any confusion. It is a good idea to read it carefully.The breeder who stated she thought my little puppy might end up being 9 lbs was a guess, not a fact.
