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.

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 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 brought Champ (Guapo) home one week ago today! The entire experience from purchasing to bringing him to his forever home was wonderful. Anytime I called with a question whoever answered the phone was extremely helpful and friendly. We received a video after he was ours and someone has checked on him frequently! We would highly recommend Premier Pups to our family and friends!
I was reluctant to purchase a pet on line. I searched and found only great reviews from premier pups . We received Brittany back on Nov 21, 2018. Ever since our precious Brittany showed up she has been a wonderful pleasure to have . The transaction of buying her, the flight and the follow up that the staff of premier pups gave us was truly awesome. I would recommend premier pups to anyone. Thank you for giving us a beautiful addition to our lives.
We had been looking for the perfect puppy for our family. When my daughter found premier pups website we fell in love with the pups. We made the 3 1/2 hour drive over to pick one up. We were having a hard time deciding between two on the website, but we fell in love with the first one they brought us. They were great people to work with!! Very nice facility too!!
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 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.
We picked up Sunny (Brittany) one week ago and we are in love! We surprised our kids with her and they are in heaven! She is so sweet and so much fun! She struggled some with eating the hard food so we have really appreciated all the support from Premier Pups!
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.
