The Havanese is a small sturdy dog of immense charm.  A native of Cuba, he has evolved over the centuries from the pampered lap-dog of the aristocracy into what he is today - the quintessential family pet of people living on a small tropical island.  His duties traditionally have been those of companion, watchdog, child's playmate and herder of the family poultry flock.

Havanese are natural companion dogs:  gentle and responsive.  They become very attached to their human families and are excellent with children.  Very affectionate and playful with a high degree of intelligence.  These cheerful dogs are very sociable and will get along with everyone including people, dogs, cats and other pets.

They are easy to obedience train and get along well with other dogs.  This curious dog loves to sit up high on a chair to observe what is going on.  The Havanese have a long reputation of being circus dogs, probably because it learns quickly and enjoys doing things for people.

Havanese are good watch dogs - making sure to alert you when a visitor arrives, but will quickly welcome the guest once it see you welcome them.  Some dogs may exhibit a degree of shyness around strangers, but this is not characteristic of the breed.  Havaneses live for your every word and gesture.  They should be neither timid nor aggressive.  It shows no cowardice, in spite of its size.
