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

  • 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.

Rhode Island is a beautiful state with wonderful stretches of waterfront and outdoor public land to enjoy life with your pup. The state does have some areas of improvement and ranks fairly average for pet-friendliness relative to other states. 


One of the leading studies for pet-friendly places to live comes from Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group. In their study, Rhode Island ranks as the 33rd most pet-friendly state. While this score is pretty average, the state did score well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another great study comes from Safewise, a safety review website for different places to live. They ranked Rhode Island similarly in the middle – as the 25th most pet-friendly state in the country.
