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 South Dakota?

South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.


We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more. 


The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country. 


But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack. 

A few more facts for dog-lovers in South Dakota

BringFido lists South Dakota as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Reptile Gardens and Custer State Park as popular dog-friendly attractions in the area.


Thirty-two percent of South Dakota residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40% but still shows that the state loves dogs. 


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

Animal welfare & dog shelters in South Dakota

South Dakota saved 10,836 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 1,824 animals were reported killed over this same period. 


Six out of 23 of the animal shelters within South Dakota are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Improving this percentage will go a long way to ranking South Dakota higher compared to other states.
