dog advice. havanese / miniature poodle mix?

i was really wanting a dog so we went to the local shelter and i saw the cutest little dog. it was a havanese/poodle (miniature poodle i think) and it was white. what would the breed be like does anyone know? how big about and just stuff i would need to know? thanks
Probably end up between 15 – 18 pounds. Maybe 11" at the shoulder. Will have a longish, slightly curly open coat. Will probably be longer than tall and VERY CUTE! Poodles are known for being smart and very trainable. Havanese are affectionate, alert and friendly. The mix should be fairly long lived and healthy. I think it would be a great dog! Lucky you. Enjoy!

    It will be very smart. That must be the cutest dog ever! What a great mix. Sounds like a movie dog to me, I say go for it! That dog will give you years of happiness. Best of luck;^)

    If it's really a mini poodle/Havanese mix it will be a fairly small dog when grown, maybe 15 pounds. But keep in mind that shelters can usually only give you their "best guess" and that what you are really getting is a general sort of dog. That said, since poodles, Havanese, West Highland white terriers, and similar dogs are intelligent and easy to train, this puppy would be a good choice.

    Some white dogs have an inherited form of deafness. You can make sure this puppy is not deaf by clapping or dropping a coin behind it and seeing if it responds. Deaf dogs can make good pets but need different training methods, since they can't hear what you're saying.
