Havamalt Characteristics

The Havamalt is a friendly, adorable hybrid mix between a Havanese and a Maltese. Loyal, caring, and intelligent, the Havamalt will respond best to obedience training and socialization early in life. However, once trained, these little dogs maintain the best characteristics from each parent and make a fantastic companion dog for an adaptable lifestyle.  

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Accommodating

Standing between 8-12 inches tall and weighing anywhere between 5-15 pounds, the Havamalt is the perfect travel-sized companion. This is a good thing because these dogs suffer from a bit of separation anxiety and love spending as much time with their people as possible. Obedience training is important to ensure good behavior while you're apart from your Havamalt.
 
These cheerful little pups get along with family members, children, and other pets, but it is important to keep an eye on them when outside. Just like other tiny dogs, they sometimes think they can take on the big guys and may pick a fight with larger dogs. Just be sure to keep an eye on them when they’re playing with other pets.
 
These dogs are considered hypoallergenic, similar to a poodle or poodle mix. However, it is still important to have them groomed regularly. Frequent brushing will also ensure their coats stay free of knots.
 
Havamalts are wonderful with other pets, children, and friends and strangers alike. People love to pet them, and they love to be pet and to snuggle with their owners! They’re a perfect and adaptable companion. 
 

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
