    Hello. We need your help. We bought a Havanese pup born 12-16-2019 from a pet shop in South Houston a few weeks back. We received paperwork that showed the sire as Williams Romeo and the dam as PL101’s Pedra. Paperwork also showed Lori Conrad of Frankford as reference. This young pup will be 4 months old on April the 16th. But he already weighs 11.7 lbs. Is this a true Havanese breed or is he cross bred with another species?
    We feel like his price dictated a pure bred but we honestly want to be prepared if he becomes a pretty large dog. We are hoping the dam and sire info can help confirm this but if you need the actual numbers please email or text me at 713- 202- 2282. Thanks so much
    Anthony and Tracy DeFatta, league City Texas 77573.
