Havanese

Havanese


Height: 8-11 inches

Weight: 7-14 lbs.

Life Span: 14-15 yrs.

Breed Group: Companion Dogs

Overview
A happy and sweet dog, the Havanese learns quickly and does very well in obedience classes. It enjoys playing with gentle children, is friendly with other animals, and is usually interested in strangers. This dog is a good choice for a family or an adult household in the city or suburbs.

Appearance
It may take two to four years for the Havanese's soft, thick double coat to reach its full length--six to seven inches--and thickness.

The hair on the forehead may form a curtain in front of the eyes and so is often held away from the face with a rubber band. The tail is covered with long, silky hair that blends with the rest of the coat when the dog is at rest.

All colors and combinations are seen. In fact, great color diversity is a distinguishing characteristic of this breed.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The Havanese needs to be brushed daily to prevent matting. It also requires slow-paced daily walks and playtime.

Origins
The Havanese originated in the 18th century. More than likely its ancestors were such small companion dogs as the Bolognese or the Maltese, which developed in the Middle Ages around major port cities of the Spanish Empire.

The most common bichon-type dog in Cuba, the Havanese is also called bichon Havanais, bichon Habañero, and Havana silk dog.

Breed-related health concerns: cataracts, patellar luxation.
