History of the Havanese & more...


 

 History of the Havanese dog

 

The Bichon Havanais and other Bichon breeds were brought into Cuba during colonization perhaps by the Spanish.  They were said to have been given as gifts to wealthy Cuban ladies as a way of establishing trading relationships.

The Havanese was a companion pet and lived exclusively in the aristocratic homes of Cuba.

Over time, Cuba was visited by European aristocrats who acquired their own little "white Havanas" as gifts during their travels to Cuba.  They took their silky dogs back to France, Spain and England.

Eventually, the Havanese became more popular and available to all. They were wonderful family dogs, watch dogs and noted especially for their ways with the children. 

During the political upheaval of the 1950's and 1960's and exodus that followed, few Havanese dogs made it to America.  There was however, a few Cuban families living in America and Costa Rica. These families worked toward preserving this disappearing breed.

A couple most noted for their contribution to protect this breed from extinction were Dorothy and Bert Goodale of Colorado.  These experienced dog breeders took interest in the Havanese breed and with great effort; they were able to locate a handful of Havanese dogs and began to introduce the Havanese to America.

The Havanese is said to appear today as it did in the 18th century.

FUN FACTS:

Queen Victoria, King Henry III, Napoleon III, Francis I and Charles Dickens all owned Havanese dogs.

Other breeds are related to the Havanese are the Bichon Frise, Bolognese, Coton De Tulear, Lowchen and the Bolonka Tsvetnaya.

In the past the Havanese dog was also known as the Havana Silk Dog, The White Cuban, Spanish Silk Poodle and Bichon Habanero.
