Havanese dogs

.
The Havanese is Cuba’s only native breed and is also the country’s National Dog. Friendly and light yet sturdy, they’re popular family pets.
The Havanese belongs to the Bichon group of small dogs, which developed in the Mediterranean region in ancient times. Spanish traders gifted such dogs to Cuban women in order to maintain trade relationships. Wealthy Cuban families also pampered these small dogs as adorable pets.
The number of Havanese dogs greatly reduced over the years, nearly becoming extinct in both its native land and Europe. During the 1950s and 1960s, when there were just a handful of Havanese left in Cuba, three Cuban families left with their dogs for the United States. These Havanese dogs would later become progenitors to the modern Havanese.
The Havanese is a short-legged, small, and sturdy dog with a gentle expression. The happy temperament of this dog is enhanced by it exceptional gait, which is springy and lively. The double coat of the Havanese has a soft undercoat and outer layer. The abundant outer coat is about 6 to 8 inches long, and can be straight or curly.
The Havanese is not meant for outdoor living and coat care involves brushing twice or four times every week.
Fond of clowning and playing, the Havanese showers affection on its human family and everyone else. It is also always willing to please and has a tendency to be vocal.
