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.
