The Havanese stands up to
11 1/2 inches high at the shoulder. He has large dark eyes and a long,
soft, wavy coat that comes in a great variety of colours including cream,
white, blue, champagne, gold, sable, black, and chocolate, or any combination of these. Surprisingly, this
little dog doesn't shed but does need regular brushing to keep his
abundant coat tangle-free.
This sweet little dog is agile,
affectionate and very sociable. A happy, friendly, and outgoing creature,
his temperament is ideally suited to be a pet. The Havanese
loves human companionship and has the energy and playfulness to keep up
with active children. Because of his people-loving nature, this breed
will not be happy if it spends a lot of time alone.
The Havanese is a small
muscular dog with great stamina whose love of people and desire to please
makes him an excellent candidate for obedience training.
