The Havanese is a bright and energetic companion. Their intelligence and natural affection make the Havanese a perfect family pet. Energetic and protective, this breed makes a loyal watchdog and playmate.
Centuries ago, the Havanese were popular pets among Spanish aristocrats. Known for their silky-soft coats, the breed was once called the Havana Silk Dog. Although Havanese require regular grooming, the breed’s non-shedding coat comes much to the delight of allergy-sufferers.
