Havana Silk

Gregarious and loving, the Havanese is a Caribbean beauty.


Like many of her kind, 6-year-old Amy just can’t contain herself. She’s so happy, she stands on her hind feet, claps her front paws together, and spins around in circles. “Rrrrow rroow roo,” she sings to owner Barbara Johannes, a breeder in St. Charles, Mo.

An effervescent attitude makes the Havanese a favorite family pet. “Havanese were never bred to be anything but a companion animal,” Johannes notes. “They’re very family-oriented. One of their most endearing traits is their focus on you and your mood. They’re very intuitive.”

It could have said a lot more about this wonderful breed. The breed is a family dream dog. The Havanese will fit into a mildly active family to the Very active family. They will go fishing, hiking, swimming you name it they are the dog that any family would love to make part of their family.
