Havanese

The Havanese is Cuba’s national dog and their only native dog. He used to be called the Spanish Silk Poodle or the Havana Silk Dog but he evolved from being a lap dog for the aristocratic families to becoming a family pet, watchdog and herder of poultry.

He’s intelligent and easy to train. He’s affectionate and docile and very popular as a pet and also as a show dog. His coat can be any colour and shouldn’t be trimmed. Even though he’s a “toy” dog, he still needs regular exercise. He doesn’t shed so he’s ideal for people with allergies. His coat does need regular grooming. He’s 8.5 – 11.5 inches high.
