Hello,
We're currently looking for a havanese to join our family. We have three school-aged children but no other dogs right now. We have done tons of research on this breed and have been looking for a puppy and speaking with a few breeders.

We have had a breeder offer us the possibility of a 6 month old puppy she kept for evaluation and has now decided to make available as a pet. know the 6-month old has been socialized and is crate trained and house trained, which is a big plus!

Can anyone give an opinion on the pros and cons of getting a younger vs. an older puppy? We We're wondering mostly about a somewhat older dog adjusting to our family.

Hi,
Welcome to the forum! I hope you get lots of input on this question, but an older puppy from a reputable breeder is usually a big bonus!
More socialization from the mom & litter mates, housetraining, etc.
Havanese are great at any age!

Havanese are very adaptable! A well-socialized older puppy is an excellent choice if you want to avoid some of the challenges a baby puppy presents.
