Havapom Characteristics

Havapoms are aptly named – they are adorably fluffy little pom-pom-like dogs with perky ears and an almost curled tail. They’re a mix between the very fluffy Havanese and Pomeranian. Havapoms are smart, easy to train, and very affectionate. They love snuggling, being held, and playing with their families. Since the Havapom is such a small breed, they’re also great for apartment living. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Ranging from 8-11 inches at the shoulder and typically weighing between 6-13 pounds, the Havapom is the perfect travel size companion. These dogs have an intelligent and curious personality and are popular in any crowd of people. With early socialization and specific obedience training, these dogs can be trained to use "pee pads" for their entire lives, making them popular for those living in large city high-rise apartments.
 
Like many other breeds weighing less than ten pounds, Havapoms tend to think they’re much bigger and “badder” than they actually are. They may pick fights with bigger dogs, so it’s a good idea to introduce your Havapom to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. With early socialization, though, Havapoms are very friendly and love playing with children, people, and other dogs. 
 
Like many small dogs, the Havapom is pre-disposed to dental issues due to the lack of space between their teeth. Taking your dog to get regular checkups and using products to keep their teeth healthy is vital in ensuring your dog's health. Havapoms typically live from 10-12 playful 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.
