Havanese were AKC recognized in 1996 but the breed is so much older than that.
The Havanese is a descendent of breeds brought to Cuba from Spain and could also be related to the Tenerife, an ancestor of the entire Bichon family.
The Havanese is trainable and intelligent and possesses a naturally affectionate temperament. The breed is non shedding and is suitable for allergy sufferers.
They range in size from 8 1/2 to 11 1/2 inches tall at the shoulder. They should have black rimmed eyes, a black nose and black lips with the exception of a chocolate which is permitted a brown nose.
