Havanese Characteristics

The Havanese is an affectionate breed known for being inseparably close to their owners. They are smart, cuddly, easy to train, and make for great companions for everyone in the family. The Havanese is a small breed that doesn’t need a lot of space to roam. This, along with their lovable temperament, makes them great for both apartment dwellers and first-time pet owners.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Accommodating

The Havanese is a toy dog breed originally bred in Cuba to serve as a companion to the aristocracy of the time. We love that they’re perfectly bred to enjoy a human lap! They have soft, wavy coats that can come in a variety of colors including black, red, chocolate, gray, cream, gold, brown, and liver.

The Havanese is smart and eager to please their owner. In fact, they are often nicknamed the “Velcro dog,” given their penchant for sticking so close to their owner’s side.

Of course, be aware that their devotion to their owners can lead them to become anxious when left alone for long periods. That said, the Havanese is easily trainable and gets along well with children and other animals.

The Havanese don’t need a lot of exercise to stay healthy and well-behaved. A simple walk or a quick play session each day will do the trick. Plus, the Havanese does not need much space, making them well-suited for apartment dwellers.

Havanese also pick up tricks very quickly and love to put on a show! They can be protective and make good watch dogs without barking excessively.

As a smaller breed, Havanese only grow to weigh between 7 and 13 pounds and 8 to 11 inches in height. They are typically quite healthy and enjoy an average lifespan of 14 to 16 years.

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.
