Is the Havanese / Poodle (Miniature) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Havapoo; Poovanese

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Havapoo is a cross between a pure Havanese and a pure Poodle, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. Miniature as well as Toy Poodles can be used. The purpose of this so-called designer breed is to create a cute apartment-sized pet that fits easily into many families.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, in general with the Havanese / Miniature Poodle mix, you can expect a small, curly-haired dog with button eyes.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, many owners report that this mix often inherits the intelligence and sensitivity of the Poodle, making some people feel as if the dog can see into their mind or pick up on any tension in the home. Know how to train your Havapoo with kindness and respect, and don't neglect this attention-hungry pet for long hours of the day.
