The Havanese


One of the cutest dogs from South America is the Havanese. The animal is originally from Cuba and came to Europe in the 18th century. The animal has a beautiful coat. However, that advantage also has a disadvantage: he must be brushed (almost) daily. The animal has an unbridled energy and is always in for a diversion. Once they notice that someone pays attention to them, nothing is too much trouble.

The Havanese is descended from the Bichon family. The animal is most likely descended from the Bichon Frisé and the Maltese. The dog has never really had a job to do. It has always been a companion animal for the wealthy. Probably these dogs arrived on the island via European merchant ships. However, the Cubans further refined the breed. The Cuban Revolution jeopardized the dog's survival. However, the breed has been preserved in America.

Havanese, however, are companion dogs. They love to be with their owner(s) and don't mind being spoiled at all. The animal has a cheerful, cheerful character. However, it is not a dog for people who are often away, because the dog hates to be home alone. In addition, Havanese have a particularly large capacity for empathy. They take over the mood of their owner. The dogs are quite intelligent and like to learn. In the past, Havanese were also used in the circus. This was not only because they look so adorable, but also because they learn tricks so quickly!

Raising the Havanese is not difficult. However, it is important that you raise the animal in a positive way. The dogs are extremely sensitive. When you fall out with them, they notice it immediately. Therefore, take the time to educate them. It is also good to introduce the puppy at a young age to new places, people and dogs.
