About Havanese Puppies
Though they only grow to weigh 8-11 pounds, Havanese puppies have big personalities with lots of love to give. They adore spending time with people and are as cheerful and content as can be when by your side. Havanese is a toy breed belonging to the Bichon family, alongside breeds like Bichon Frise and Maltese, and their typical lifespan is 14-16 years. Common health problems for the breed (heart issues, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, eye problems, and hypothyroidism) can be kept at bay by ensuring your Havanese maintains the proper weight.
Size & Care
Height: 8.5 - 11.5 inches | Weight: 7 - 13 pounds
Daily grooming and brushing is essential to keep Havanese coats soft, silky and tangle-free. It’s also important that their food intake is monitored because obesity is a common health concern for this breed. Havanese need high-quality dog food, a watchful eye over their calorie consumption, and they should only be given treats and table scraps in moderation.
Frequent exercise is another way to ensure your Havanese stays in tip-top shape. They enjoy long walks, active games, and romping throughout the house. Just don’t leave them to their own devices for long – they’re happiest when they have a playmate. It’s also possible to over-exercise a Havanese, so remember that although they may seem to have boundless energy, too much exertion can take a toll on their little frame.
Character & Temperament
Havanese are adorably devoted dogs that delight in companionship and fun. They spread their joy and affection to everyone around them, including children and other pets.
They are intelligent, easily trainable and have been known to put on silly shows for their family’s amusement. Some of them even have a mischievous streak and might be found shredding any paper lying around. Above all, Havanese desire the company of others and it isn’t hard for them to charm their way into the hearts of all they meet.
