Einstein the Havanese Pup Wants You to Follow Him on Instagram

Havanese rescue pup, Einstein, might be small but his personality, his owner assures us, is very BIG. The four-year-old dog, based in Seattle, Washington, also goes by the name Panda and loves playing chase, giving face kisses, and making humans laugh. With almost 20k followers on Instagram, he’s also kind of a big deal.

In an interview with Hello Bark! his owner described the first time he’s laid eyes on him. “I was ready for a small dog, and was visiting shelters almost every day to find one that was a good fit,” he recalled. “One morning, I walked into a shelter and Einstein had been rescued the night before – there he was, staring up at me. I saw that he was a Havanese and I instantly knew he was my dog. I never expected to find a Havanese in a shelter, but it opened my eyes to the variety of pups who can be rescued the same way.”

A love story followed suit, and the two haven’t separated ever since. “If Einstein could only do one thing for the rest of his life, it would be sitting in my lap kissing my face,” says his owner. “He is loyal almost to a fault, and attached to my heels wherever we go.”

Einstein is also described as a very gentle and loving pup. “One of my favorites is when a close friend brought her newborn to meet us,” his owner shared a sweet memory of Einstein. “I wasn’t sure how Einstein would do with the baby, but he was incredibly sweet and gentle with her. It was wonderful to see how caring he was with this tiny baby, and over the years their bond has gotten stronger and stronger.”
