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

Name: Betty White
Breed: Havanese
Client: Natalie Johnson
Loc: New Orleans, LA

I’ve heard great things about Havanese and how they are loving, loyal and most importantly easy to train!! Within 8 days of having Betty she was ringing the bell to go potty!! Of course she has had accidents even just days ago, but she’s so smart and catches on to anything!! She’s everything our family was missing!!! The process with premier pups was easy. I was nervous up until the day we picked her up at the airport but so glad I looked past the fact that I was buying a puppy without actually meeting it first!! I’d buy another one bc she’s that wonderful!! If you’re on the fence...get off of it and buy a puppy! Preferably a Havanese!!

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.

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.

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.

Mollie is the sweetest dog and the perfect addition to our 3 kid household. She is right in the tumble of 6 and 7 year old boys, sweet and playful. We couldn’t ask for a better pup.

our kids have been wanting a dog forever! The problem has been our allergies until we found a Bradley at Premier pups. there were a few pups we liked and we took the drive on New Year’s Day 2020 not knowing if we were going to get a dog. In the end… Bradley was meant for us! His personality matched ours and not one of us felt any sort of allergy with him. He is now seven months old and we could not imagine him not in our family. He’s absolutely the best dog ever!!! we highly highly recommend Premier pups top-notch facility. Staff super super nice, knowledgeable, hands-on. gain premier pups… Follow Bradley to have a Nice on Instagram
