Bred as a companion dog to the Cuban Aristocracy during the 1500’s, 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 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
A small and sturdy gait with 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 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 is not common in these dogs and should be corrected immediately if necessary. They are the most happy 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.
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 of the exercise that 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 to harshly. Practicing praise and creating a treat based reward system will result in both a happy puppy and a happy owner.

I have had such a good experience with Premier Pups. As a first time dog mom, I did extensive research before selecting a breeder, and I could not be happier with my choice. Premier has an excellent selection of breeds, and quickly responded to my many pre-purchase queries. Delivery of my precious rascal Marlow was first-rate. Premier is very responsive on all levels, even after your puppy is home. I highly recommend them!
We purchased Sammy a week before the pandemic hit and he has been so much company for my husband and I. Premier Pups answered all questions and concerns prior to bringing Sammy home and they are very helpful and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again. We have 15 grandchildren and he has been great around children too.
Premier Pups where great! They answered all my questions and were extremely caring. They were in touch with me the day of the flight and right through the flight home.
I was very skeptical about my adoption of Jericho. I was scared the website was a scam of some sort; thank god it was not. I received Jericho in perfect condition and the staff was helpful in his transition in living with me. I encourage others to use this site to get the playful puppy you want. Have no fear and know you are in good hands.
We brought Remi home on Valentine’s Day this year. She has been such a blessing to our family. Her personality is everything we had hoped for.
I am a first time pet owner and was nervous at first about getting a puppy. However, after doing extensive research on which breed to get and from where, I knew Premier Pups was the right choice for us. The whole process was easy! We were so excited, we woke up early on the day they posted the pictures and selected the puppy we liked. The purchase was straight forward then after that it was just a matter of waiting and getting the house ready. We received Lily (formerly Carolina) on May 29. During the beginning on the pandemic, the travel coordinators were working hard to ensure we get out puppy without delays or issues. Lily turned out to be a perfect fit for our family. She is so affectionate and stops to say hi to everyone who passes by! She is funny, playful, cute and so curious about everything! She has the cutest underbite too haha! Overall, it was a great experience, and I often go back on the website to see if I fall in love with another puppy to get Lily a playmate. Only improvement I would suggest, is I wish there was more information on the website about the puppies’ personality or physical traits (underbite, hair or other). We love her so much and couldn’t be happier!
It's now been two years since we got Rafi! I have to say, he's the best dog -- smart as all get out, energetic, loving, a protector, and just the "thing" that was missing in our family! We settled on a Havanese because of allergies and we also wanted a smaller dog. He was only 2 lbs 4 oz when we got him and now he's just over 11 lbs. He does not shed at all and was not too difficult to train. Thank you for sending the best pup to us!
I was looking for a small breed and I seen Havanese ?? I purchased 2 pups from premier and could be happier. The process is easy, the customer service is wonderful and they give you everything you need for a happy healthy pup... in my case 2 pups. The pups are so much fun to watch and cuddle. Thank you for everything ??
After doing a lot of research on different breeds of dogs (I am allergic and needed a hypoallergenic dog) I decided that a havenese would be perfect for me. I drove to Ohio from Pittsburgh to Premier pup to pick up my new puppy. I instantly fell in love with. Chloe is everything I could ever want and more. I am so thankful for Premier pup. Danielle
Ruby arrived in my home 10/14/2020...What a beauty! This is one of the smartest pups I’ve ever known and has been a dream to train so far. She’s a heartfelt addition to my home. And I look forward to many, many happy years of companionship.... a well known trait of the Havanese breed. The involvement with Premier Pups has been the best. Their follow up and thoroughness of information is unfounded. They really care about their pups. After months of reaching out to shelters for a young, female small breed dog with no luck due to the popularity of adoption during COVID ( a good thing!) I decided to look into Premiere Pups since I wanted to get a dog and have enough time to potty train her before the snow flies. A great choice. You can’t go wrong with Premiere Pups.
