General Breed Information

The Bichon Havanais developed in Cuba and was very popular with wealthy individuals in that country before the start of the Cuban Revolution. After the revolution, the breed became in danger of extinction. Fortunately, an American breeder started a breeding program that would increase the number of specimens of this breed. Nowadays, the Bichon Havanais is gaining more popularity in the United States and other countries.

The height of the Bichon Havanais is approximately 8 to 11 inches, and its weight is around 7 to 13 pounds. These dogs have almond-shaped eyes and a black nose at the end of their square muzzle. They have long ears covered with long, flowing hair. The neck of these dogs is wide, and they have a square body and broad shoulders. They have short, chubby legs and long, round feet. Their long and flowing fur may come in a wide variety of colours, including white, cream, silver, gold, black, and blue.

The average life span of these dogs is 14 to 15 years. Although the Bichon Havanais is a fairly healthy breed, some specimens may be susceptible to luxating patellas, cataracts, progressive retinal atrophy, poodle eye, and dry skin.

Owners should groom these dogs by clipping the hair short. If kept long, the coat of these dogs should be brushed thoroughly at least two times a week. Excess hair between the pads of their feet should also be clipped. The eyes and ears of these dogs should also be checked regularly.
