This is the official introduction post for Oliver. Oliver is a Chihuahua crossed with a Havanese. He weighs about 9 pounds, and as you can see he has the short coat and the erect pointed ears of the chihuahua, but most of his other attributes come from the havanese, such as the longer leg, body, and snout. Also his temperament is more havanese, he is extremely playful and athletic, although he does get the shakes, like chihuahuas do, when hes nervous. Amazingly, he is nearly silent, he only ever barks when someone comes to the door.
Hes also affectionate and loves to play fetch. Best of all is his small size, which makes him the perfect boat dog, and theres nothing he likes better than standing at the bow of the zodiac, running down false creek at full speed.
