About the Breed
The Havanese dog breed, a popular and sweet toy dog, is a member of the Bichon family. It originates from Cuba and is recognized by the American Kennel Club and the Havanese Club of America as a toy breed.
Bred as a companion dog to the Cuban Aristocracy during the 1500s, and named after the Capital of its origin, the Havanese, also referred to as “the silk dog” would become the national emblem of Cuba. Now almost extinct in its founding country, the Havanese was brought to the United States during the Cuban revolution in 1959 when only 11 dogs were left to save the breed from extinction. Since then the breed has thrived throughout the United States and Europe. These highly trainable and companion-driven dogs make for a perfect family pet.
Appearance and Grooming
With a small and sturdy gait, dark almond-shaped eyes, and a full muzzle, this breed will never appear fragile. Despite its silky coat and minimal shedding, routine grooming is an absolute necessity for this dog breed. With its common coloring of black, blue, brown, gray, silver, and white, it is a beauty of the Dogdom. Most owners opt for a shorter cut for easier maintenance. Though these puppies can also wear their hair long, they will require added brushing several times a week, if not daily, and regular trims every 3 to 4 weeks.
This toy dog breed is friendly, playful, alert, and intelligent with a sweet, non-quarrelsome disposition. Aggressive behavior and shyness are not common in these dogs and should be corrected immediately if necessary. They are the happiest when they are with their owner as they form a special bond and a high level of attachment to the person they spend the most time with. Though they prefer to stay at home, given the chance they also love to run around outdoors.
Family and Companionship
With the earned title of, “Velcro Dog” you must believe that this loyal little canine will never leave your side. They are needy dogs who are keen on lots of affection and play. Perfect for a family with children or other active pets, as they love little clowning around and spreading their affection to their adopted family and everyone they meet. Showing dogs that they are cherished family members will make these dogs happiest.
This small purebred needs light to moderate exercise each day. A short walk or some indoor play each day will ensure your puppy is getting all the exercise they need. Be careful not to over-exercise this little bundle of energy, as much as it will love to keep up, too much exertion is not good for its tiny frame.
Training and Socialization
Even though this highly intelligent and over eager pooch is a fast learner, they still need patience and gentle guidance as their pride can be easily hurt if scolded too harshly. Practicing praise and creating a treat-based reward system will result in both a happy puppy and a happy owner.

Working with Premier Pups was so easy, whenever I had any questions they were very prompt and thorough with their response. The website is easy to use and informative. Our puppy is such a great addition to our family. She has such an amazing disposition, she is always happy and loves everyone. Without a doubt, if we were interested in another addition to our family we would choose Premier Pups again!

Premier Pups was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. The communication was excellent and customer service is too notch. I know adopting a dog through the Internet can seem a little scary or sketchy, but I assure you Premier Pups is legit and it was a smooth and easy process and experience. I especially love that they reached out in my pup’s first birthday to wish her a happy one! Very personal and thoughtful!

After doing a lot of research on breeds, I stumbled upon Premier Pups online. Their website was very professional, so I kept checking in over several months until I found “the one.” As first time dog owners, we didn’t know what to expect. Premier Pups walked us through every step, answered all our questions, and checked in with us several times over the first week or two. We picked Koda (orig. Hamlin) up from the facility and we were very impressed. And now almost a year later, we still can’t believe our luck in finding the sweetest, most lovable and healthiest little guy. He brings so much joy to our family. Would definitely recommend Premier Pups!

My experience with Premier Pups was wonderful! I knew that I wanted a puppy but I didn’t know what breeder or breed. I found Premier Pups and I fell in love with their puppies at first sight. I watched the website for about 6 months and I keep thinking I’ll know the puppy for me and my family as soon as I see him! Lol Eventually I came across Nore’! (F.K.A Jose). From the moment I submitted the video request, the Premier Pups experience was easy and worry free. They communicated with me every step of the process and were extremely detailed in the directions and care for the puppy during the first week. Even after we brought Nore’ home they sent periodic texts for the first few weeks checking on Nore’s progress which was greatly appreciated! The delivery process was stress free as well! We arrived at the designated meeting spot about 10 minutes early so I was there to see the van pull in and I watched the gentleman that delivered Nore’ to me clean out his crate and changed the puppy pad prior to handing him off to me. That was just another example of great customer service! I’m so pleased with the service I received I’m actually considering getting a brother or sister for Nori from Premier Pups! We just love him sooooo much! He’s the perfect pup for our family!

Our experience with Premier Pups has been outstanding. Over the past 10 years, we have adopted 2 loving, playful pups from Premier Pups. Our puppies arrived healthy with no health concerns or issues. We are very impressed with the support we have received from Premier Pups. From our first video chat to our puppy’s first birthday, Premier Pups has provided honest, trustworthy information about the puppy’s background, health and feeding guidance, veterinarian support, and regular check-ins to ensure our puppy is happy and healthy.

Raleigh came to us thru Premier Pups and was our 2 dog purchased thru this company. They were very timely in replies to our questions and ensure both of our dogs were safe flying from OH to WI. I think the best part is the follow up during the first few days, weeks and then even at their one year birthday we had Premier Pups reach out for updates. We have two very happy and healthy pups that we love with all of our hearts. I would highly recommend using the is service and likely will do so again myself.
Scrappy (aka Bosco)
Michael I. Monday, February 7, 2022
This is our dog that we adopted through Premier Pups. Scrappy is one year old now and full of life and fun. He loves chewing on his chew toys, sitting with his mom and running in the snow. I cannot say enough about our experience with Premier Pups. They have lots of online resources available to review. They did a great job of checking the Scrappy over to make sure he is healthy and in good condition before releasing him. They also called and texted us several times after we received Scrappy to make sure everything was good and answered all my questions. They really care about scrappy and want to make sure everything is going well for him and us. Thanks Premier Pups for a great dog that we love dearly and your service that exceeded my expectations.
