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.

This is our little girl Peaches (Catalina) in her Hawaiian dress. We want to thank Premier Pups for all they did for us to have her. They had so many obstacles to climb because of Corvid-19 and most planes were not flying. But we did get her and the service was fantastic. They checked on her, made sure they answered ALL our messages. I would purchase another puppy from them in a heart beat. THEY ARE FANTASTIC. Thank you so much.
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 had an amazing experience with Premier Pups! Our little guy is great, and has already brought us so much joy. He is healthy and full of love. He is already adjusting well, and doing great on potty training. Havanese is definitely a great breed, and even a better family dog. Thanks Premier Pups for the great experience, and always being there anytime that we have had a question!
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.
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.
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
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
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!
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!!
Pebbles (formerly Estela) came to us in April 2020 I was worried about the “virtual” purchase but I did my research and Premier Pups process made everything so easy with answering any questions to step by step instructions when she arrived. Taking delivery of Pebbles during the COVID mess with airline flights I prepared myself to drive to Ohio to pick her up. But Mike with Premier Pups flew a private charter to Florida with Pebbles along with a few of her furry friends. She arrived happy, healthy and full of energy! That’s excellent customer service not only with the delivery Premier Pups even continued to check in with me to see how Pebbles was doing. I had a great experience and would not hesitate to recommend and use Premier Pups in the future! Here’s a picture of her 1st birthday along with her favorite Yak chew stick!
