Havanese Size and Weight
The Havanese is a small yet sturdy breed in both size and weight, unlike many other dogs in the Toy group.
It’s important to keep your Havanese at a healthy weight. Due to their smaller size, extra weight can be harder on their joints and bodies than it would for a larger breed. Make sure to follow the feeding guidelines on your food and consider a diet plan if your Havanese gains unnecessary weight. Read more about Havanese size and weight.
The Havanese personality and temperament is that of an affectionate, fun-loving, and easygoing dog breed. Although they will attach strongly to one person, they love to be around everyone! They love to be around their people and prefer not to be alone, although a properly bred Havanese will not be more prone to separation anxiety or nervous behaviors.
The Havanese is generally very sociable and friendly with strangers, but still requires early socialization to make sure this part of their personality and temperament develops properly. Read more about Havanese personality.
