The Havanese gets its name from Havana, Cuba, and is a toy breed recognized by the American Kennel Club. Historically, these dogs were lapdogs and considered a sign of nobility and wealth because they didn’t have any specific working purpose. Today, they are known for being loving companions and can be especially well-suited as emotional support animals. The Havanese is only 8 to 12 inches tall and weighs in at less than 13 pounds. Their coats are long and luxuriously soft and are generally variations of white, brown and black.
The Havanese is a great choice if you’re looking for an intelligent, trainable companion dog. They love to learn new tricks and generally do very well with positive reinforcement training. They can be a bit on the fragile side and don’t always do well with young children, but they are excellent lapdogs for older humans. The coat on this breed does require some grooming maintenance, but if you don’t want to have to worry about regular brushing, you can cord or shave them.
