I’ll bet you can’t guess what kind of dog Pixie is. Her mom gets asked all the time, and when I first met her, I thought she was a Papillon – Chihuahua mix. Turns out she’s a Short Coat Havanese! In her litter, there were both normal Havanese and ones like Pixie. The nickname for them is “Shavanese” and they’re perfectly healthy, just with different coats. It’s an anomaly that occurs when when both parents carry this particular recessive gene. (remember science class: BB, Bb, bb) I thought it was pretty cool.
