I'm new and would appreciate any advice on adopting a Havanese puppy.

The Havanese is considered a rare breed in Canada (similar to the Italian Bolognese dog). My vet now has 2 Havanese patients. I suggest, if you have not already done so, that you go to the Havanese specific web site and fill out the questionnaire to determine if you are the right parent for a Havanese (in short, are you aware of the extreme separation anxiety and absoute LOVE of destroying anything paper related, etc.) Then from there, if you are still set on getting a Havanese, you will have to start to look for breeders - you may have to go to US. I have an American Eskimo - he is acquainted with and gets along well with one of the Havanese treated by our vet - they both LOVE paper.
