The Havanese is a rare toy breed that is related to the Bichon. The Havanese breed first developed in Cuba. Havanese, unlike most toy breeds, loves to be around children and can be a great family pet. One of the more charming characteristics of the Havanese is that Havanese dogs will often follow their people around the house, even bringing their food from one room to another in order to be with the family. They are devoted to their families but not possessive, a trait which makes it a very desirable family dog. Similar to the Bichon, the Havanese rarely sheds and doesn’t release a lot of dander making it a good dog for families where some members are sensitive to pet hair and dander. Havanese puppies are adorable.
