Havanese Information

havanese breedA popular toy breed, the Havanese is funny, outgoing and intelligent. Small in size but large in personality, this dog has a long coat that looks like it’d be hot, but in actuality, it protects the pup from the sun and overheating. The breed is the only native dog of Cuba and considered their national dog.

This is a great choice for those with allergies since the Havanese does not shed. Curious and friendly, they are moderately active, enjoying play time when they can.
