"He will dance for me, talk to me, be my most enthusiastic traveling companion with the most exemplary of manners.  What more can I say?  He is a Havanese!"
- Dorothy Goodale, Havanese, A Complete and Reliable Handbook

Havanese
 "Clark" and "Rocky" 

Popular theory states that the Havanese came to Cuba with the Spaniards who were exploring the Caribbean. 

Bred to be companions and pets, the Havanese soon found favour with wealthy Cubans. 

The Havanese is related to the Bichon Frise and the Maltese,  and is also called the Bichon Havanais.  

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.
