“Dear New Family, How lucky you are to bring such a wonderful girl into your family. It was apparent when Havana arrived that she was starved for attention early on and she so craved it. She does not know what personal space is and I don’t think she cares…she just wants to be all up in your business whenever she can. She is such a smart girl and has learned so much in the months that I have had her. Havana will sit, stay and give “high five”.

Havana is a typical Frenchie puppy who loves to play with toys! Bones are a favorite and she has a tendency to hoard them. Havana loves every person she meets and has a Frenchie friend in her foster home that she loves to play with.
Havana is crate trained and potty trained. She will sit at the door and wait for someone to let her out when she needs to go potty. At night, she sleeps in her crate and does very well. Havana is still young and all puppy with lots of energy! She loves to explore and still needs supervision so that she doesn’t get herself into trouble. She will benefit from additional training in her forever home. Even though she likes to think that she is in charge, she re-directs easily when caught being naughty.
Havana is very loving and likes to be where her favorite people are. She is also very smart and food motivated which is helpful when training her. Because she plays rough and can be mouthy when playing, children should be older and dog savvy. Havana would love to be in a family with children, but could also live with an active couple or single person as long as they are prepared to spend lots of time with her!
The best family for Havana will have previous Frenchie experience since Havana can be strong willed and selective about which dogs she gets along with. Her new owner should be a strong pack leader who knows how to properly manage a dog with a tendency for naughty behavior.
Havana would not do well with an inactive family or a family who is not able to give her tons of attention. She loves to around people! If her new family has other dogs, they must be similar in size, and her new family must use slow introductions while getting them adjusted to each other.
The best home for Havana will include a secure fenced yard. An apartment wouldn’t be ideal due to her energy level; she is still very young and gets the zoomies often. When the weather is nice Havana loves to run through the yard at her foster home and it brings her a lot of joy. She loves to sunbathe and just do exploring when the mood hits her. Havana is still learning leash manners, but does well on short walks. She gets very excited when she sees other dogs while out on walks and must wear a secure harness while outside of the fenced yard.
Havana would love to have her people home all day with her if that is possible, however she can be crated if her person works outside of the home. If her family works outside of the home, she will need a mid-day potty break. Havana is young and trainable, so with training she could be a great office companion.
Havana’s foster family has this to share about her, “Dear New Family, How lucky you are to bring such a wonderful girl into your family. It was apparent when Havana arrived that she was starved for attention early on and she so craved it. She does not know what personal space is and I don’t think she cares…she just wants to be all up in your business whenever she can. She is such a smart girl and has learned so much in the months that I have had her. Havana will sit, stay and give “high five”. She will sit and wait for the “Ok” command before eating her food and will always lick her bowl clean. She loves to play and will fetch for you as long as you want. She does think she is a Billy Goat as she loves to get up as high as she can. I’m sure it’s to see what’s going on around her but more likely she has spotted something she wants to check out. She will lay on top of the dog house to soak up some rays when the weather is nice. She is healthy and has no problem with having her ears, folds or anything else cleaned. Bath time is not an issue. She will however let you know when she needs your attention and she has a high pitched screech that will send you searching for the baby in distress!! Its unlike anything I have heard before. Also, you may want to forewarn the resident dogs that when Havana is ready to play she will revert to her “WWE” alter ego and will try to body slam them. She will run from the other side of the room and jump on their back like she is jumping off the top rope. That said, I cannot say enough good things about this girl as she goes on to her best life ever that she so richly deserves. She has so much more to learn and so much love to give!”
If Havana has stolen your heart and you would like to adopt her, please apply today! Then be prepared to travel because this precious girl is being fostered in Central Arkansas and will not be shipped.
FBRN does not ship dogs as cargo, so adopters are expected to pick up their dogs from their foster family.
FBRN dogs are in foster care in people’s private homes. For the foster families’ safety, we do not disclose specific locations, and we don’t set up meet and greets prior to applications. For detailed information about the dogs in our care, please read the extensive bios on each dog.
Havana is an active puppy and would benefit from obedience training, especially to address how she nips during play.
Havana was treated for Giardia while in FBRN’s care and should remain on Omega-3 and a Probiotic.
