Havapoo

I was hesitant to buy a puppy online, but beyond pleased with the entire experience. We ordered our adorable 11 week old Havapoo in late Dec. and by mid Jan. he was flown out on PuppySpot’s private jet! He is very healthy and sweet. Clearly, he was well socialized and must have been introduced to potty training because he won’t go unless he is outside or on a puppy pad! Trust this company and the breeders they work with and you won’t regret it!

Havapoo Characteristics

Havapoo is a delightfully snuggly designer hybrid, bred through crossing a Havanese and a Poodle. These dogs maintain the best features from the two breeds and are smart, affectionate, playful, and extroverted. They love pleasing their owners and tend to love everyone they meet. The Havapoo is a very small breed and does well living in small spaces or an apartment.

Fast Facts

  • Trainability Accommodating

A breed with many names, the Havapoo is also known as a Poovanese, a Havadoodle, or a Havanoodle. Ranging from 8-15 inches at the shoulder and typically weighing between 7-30 pounds, the Havapoo is practically pocket-sized.  These dogs require regular brushing and are often found in black, brown, and white coats. They have intelligent and curious personalities and tend to be comfortable with anyone. Early socialization and obedience training is recommended to ensure a well-behaved companion.
 
Like other small dogs, the Havapoo can often overestimate its size. They think they can match any big dog that comes along and often try to play with dogs too big or even pick fights. Just be sure to introduce your Havapoo to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. They’re super kid-friendly, but make sure children know to be gentle with the small dogs.
 
Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Havapoo was originally bred as a safer option for people who are allergic to animals. The Havapoo also tends to avoid some of the hereditary health conditions that both its parents have. Overall, these are playful, delightful pups who will live a long happy life with their families. 
 

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.
