The Havanese is the national dog of Cuba and is pretty rare in America. They make an excellent companion because they have such a naturally affectionate temperament. They are in the "toy breed" group, so they generally are 8.5 to 11.5 inches high at the shoulder and usually weigh between 7 and 14 pounds. They are extremely intelligent and very trainable and love children.
Their coat is very lightweight, and even though their hair is usually kept long, they don't get hot very easily. They don't shed either, which makes one really nice for those who suffer from pet allergies!

When God had made the earth and sky, the flowers and the trees, He then made all the animals, the fish, the birds and bees.
And when at last He'd finished, not one was quite the same, God said, "I'll walk this earth of mine, and give each one a name."
And so He traveled far and wide, and everywhere He went, A little creature followed Him, until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth, and in the sky and sea, The little creature said, "Dear Lord, there's not one left for me."
Kindly the Father said to him, "I've left you to the end, I've turned my own name back to front, and call you DOG, my friend."
