National Dog of Cuba, and sharing ancestors with the Bichon Frise, Maltese and Coton de Tuleur, the Havanese is thought to have reached Cuba in the company of Spanish or Italian colonists and traders.

A lively and affectionate companion, with a zest for life, who enjoys being centre of attention without attempting to rule the roost, the Havanese is small but sturdy breed, capable of standing up for himself in boisterous play.

Very much a companion breed the Havanese needs human company and will not thrive if left alone for long periods.
