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.

Temperament

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.

Exercise

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.

HAVANESE

Breed: Havanese

Loc: east coast

Sammy is the cutest dog! As a first time dog owner, I was nervous about picking a dog without visiting him in person - but the premierpups team was good and he was delivered 4 days after purchasing him, in good health! I was also happy to have all his paperwork. I appreciate they make themselves a resource for all the questions and concerns you likely have during the first few days. I’m recommending premierpups to all my friends - they clearly know their stuff especially about small breeds. And havaneses are the best - Sammy has a great temperament so far :)

We were very hesitant to adopt from this company. Worried about puppy mill puppies and sick puppies. After I spoke with premier finance, I felt better and used his recommendation to help us pick a puppy. The team members handled all of the puppies every day and were able to give insight on esch puppies personality. We were nervous about the flight but decided to go ahead with adoption. From the pick up from the airport, transition to home, follow up phone calls from premier it was a wonderful experience. Our vet felt she was very healthy and well socialized.

Loc: Madison, NJ

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 can honesty say that I was kind of sceptical at first about picking a dog on line, but my experience with Adorable pups, have really changed my whole outlook on the idea. They are an excellent facility, very clean, very knowledgeable, and very very helpful with my experience with them, they genuinely care about the puppies they have there, and the follow up on my baby made me realize they aren't just any fly by night place. I am very happy with my baby, he seems very happy and healthy and that's what it's all about. I would most definitely get another puppy from them and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants to adopt, a happy healthy puppy, Thank you Adorable pups for everything.

This is my baby Lila! She just turned 12 weeks old and she is happy and healthy. She is about 4.5 pounds now and is expected to be between 8-12 pounds. Premier Pups was wonderful to work with and they checked up on Lila multiple times. She was shipped to us and it was an easy process. Lila adjusted well. She is very smart and loves my rowdy boys. She also wants to play with our older, grumpy cocker spaniel. She never cries in her crate and pees on her puppy pad during the night. During the day she goes outside and does well. We just love her!

We hadn’t had a dog in over 10 years. Our kids asked constantly for the past few years. My husband, Brad, and I were so apprehensive to get a dog. I researched breeds and breeders. When I found Premier Pups, I knew we were getting a dog!!! Then, when I came across Georgie (Reese), I fell completely in love! Brad did, too! Premier Pups answered all our questions and we knew we were making the right decision. Georgie has been a dream dog, too! She fits in perfectly with our family. Thank you, Premier Pups!!

We were looking for a four legged friend to complete our family. Coming from a family that has Yorkies, I was looking for something small. I researched small breeds and came to the conclusion that a havenese pup would be perfect. I found premier pups durning my search and feel in love with Joyce now Hazel. She has been perfect since we brought her home. She is well socialized but likes her independence. She barely barks or whines. We are absolutely in love. We will be returning to pick out a friend for her as soon as she is potty trained!
