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

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • 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 Kentucky?

Kentucky has some strong dog-friendly cities, but overall the state could do better for dog-friendliness. In particular, Kentucky’s animal welfare laws lag behind other states.


In a study by animal safety ranker, Pawsafe, Kentucky ranked as the 40th most pet-friendly state. Pawsafe’s study ranked each of the 50 states according to several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. The state scored poorly in this study for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Safewise, another animal safety ranker, came to a similar conclusion in a separate study. They ranked Kentucky as the 43rd most pet-friendly state. Combining these two studies together shows Kentucky towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
