  • Overview

  • Sturdy, charming and sweeter than a Cuban Mojito, the Havanese is the beloved family friend and companion you never knew you wanted. Affectionately known as “velcro-dogs”, these adorable pups seldom leave your side and crave human attention like they crave air to breathe.

    When Havanese aren’t shadowing their family around the house or snuggled in your lap, they can be found performing tricks or working as therapy dogs. Though the Havanese was originally bred to accompany the Cuban aristocracy, these princely pups don’t mind clowning around - they love pulling toilet paper off the roll and sprinting around the house and full speed.

    Havanese are easy to train and remarkably intelligent breed. They are seldom aggressive and need little exercise, but they do require regular grooming sessions to look their best. A wonderfully happy breed, the Havanese is a terrific addition to any family looking for a sweet, well-mannered companion.

  • Maltese

    One of the oldest of the European toy breeds, the Maltese has been a lap dog to royalty for centuries. This all-white dog has silky hair instead of fur, often making it more tolerable for those who are allergic. Maltese love to be pampered, cuddled and held, and typically form strong attachments. They are gentle and affectionate, and are easy to train, especially when training is started early. Maltese have a medium energy level and do well indoors or in Small Living Spaces. This breed is known to be by their owners’ sides at all times, and is sure to charm anyone they meet!

  • Shih Tzu

    The Shih-Tzu is one of the oldest dog breeds, originating in Tibet thousands of years ago. Known as the “lion dog”, these small lap dogs were prized by royalty as household pets. Shih-Tzus are affectionate companion and family animals, known to live long, healthy lives. They prefer to be indoors and, while often docile and quiet, are also playful and spunky. They become very attached to their owners and love to be spoiled. Because of their small size (they typically weigh in at 10-15 lbs.), Shih-Tzus are well suited for most living spaces, large or small.
