The only native breed of Cuba, the Havanese is a happy,outgoing dog with a friendly disposition. Originally, this sturdy toy breed was a pampered lap dog of the aristocracy. Later, his role evolved into that of a family companion, watchdog, child’s playmate, and poultry herder. With his intelligence, trainability and affectionate, nonaggressive temperament, the Havanese is an ideal family dog. The breed’s hypoallergenic coat does not shed but requires regular grooming.
