Hav

These toy-sized dogs were thought to have originated from Tenerife, a small Spanish island off the African coast.

They were much-loved dogs in Cuba, particularly as lap dogs amongst the aristocracy and nobility.

However, the Cuban revolution in the 1950s resulted in a low of wealthy Havanese refugees moving to the USA with their dogs.

The American Kennel Club rate the Havanese as the 24th most popular breed in the United States.

Havanese are often mixed with other breeds to create a so-called hybrid dog.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at 30 Havanese cross breeds. We’ll break this feature into the following sections:

The Australian Havanese is a cross between an Australian Shepherd and a Havanese. They can come in a wide variety of different eye colors and coat colors. Given the Australian Shepherd is a smart dog with high energy levels, an Australian Havanese could be more energetic than Havanese dogs.

Beaglenese

When you cross a Beagle with a Havanese, you end up with a Beaglenese. These dogs should have a predominantly white coat with some black and brown markings. Beagles are alert dogs used for hunting so Beaglenese could have higher exercise requirements than Havanese dogs.

Blue Havanese

Don’t be fooled by the name. This isn’t a Havanese dog with a blue coat. It’s a Blue Heeler Havanese cross. They’re a rare mix so you won’t find many. They’ve got high energy level so they might not be suited to apartment life unlike the Havanese breed.

Border Colvanese

No surprises for guessing this particular mix. The Border Colvanese is the result of breeding between a Border Collie and a Colvanese. The Border Collie is the smartest breed in the world, so this hybrid should have a relatively high IQ.

Cairnese

We’ve got another rare combination to look at. The Cairnese is the result of breeding between a Cairn Terrier and a Havanese. Given both breeds are relatively small, their offspring shouldn’t grow to be too big in size.

Cavanese

The Cavanese is one of the most common Havanese cross breeds. These dogs have a Cavalier King Charles parent and a Havanese parent. There is an array of possible colors given the different Cavalier varieties. Cavaliers and Havanese are affectionate, loyal and social, so a Cavanese puppy is likely to display similar qualities.

Cheenese

We’re not talking about any dairy products here. The Cheenese is a cross between a Chihuahua and a Havanese. This is a tiny hybrid dog given the size of each parents so they’ll be perfect for dog lovers who live in cities.

Crested Havanese

The hint is in the name: Crested Havanese are the result of breeding between a Crested Chinese Dog and a Havanese. They’ll usually have a dark coat with long hair. They’ll almost certainly be hypoallergenic with a low shedding coat.

Dachvanese

The Dachvanese will be longer rather than tall given their Dachshund parent. When the German breed is crossed with a Havanese, you get a Dachvanese. They should have long coats with wiry hair rather a smooth coat.

Dualanese

There’s a good chance that you haven’t heard about the Dualanese. Neither of their parents are a well-known breeds. The toy cross breed is a mix between a Bolognese and a Havanese.

Enganese

The English Toy Spaniel are energetic dogs. When they’re crossed with the Havanese breed, the result is a Enganese. They’ll usually have an inquisitive personality but they’ll enjoy human company. Hence why these hybrid dogs are considered a companion dog.

Ewokian

This isn’t a character from Star Wars. It’s in fact a cross between a Pomeranian and a Havanese. The Ewokian are perfect dogs for those who live in apartment: they’re small pets that don’t need a lot of exercise.

Frenchnese

The Frenchnese is a cross breed dog that has a French Bulldog and a Havanese parent. They’re a small mix that are rather more built than a Havanese dog. They make good watchdogs or therapy dogs.

German Havanese

Havajack

You’ll probably be able to guess what dog was bred with a Havanese to create a Havajack. It’s the Jack Russell! These dogs make excellent watchdog due to the Jack Russell Terrier’s alert nature.

HavaKlee

The HavaKlee is a rare mix between a Havanese and an Alaskan Klee Kai. While the Cuban dogs are popular as apartment dogs, the Klee Kai is still a relatively new breed. This mix could be prone to separation anxiety given both parents are companion dogs.

Havallon

Another Havanese mix that is quite common is the Havallon. It’s a cross between the Papillon and the Havanese – combining France and Cuba. There’s tiny dogs that love the company of humans.

Both breeds are considered to be low shedding dogs, so perfect for anyone looking to find a cross breed with hypoallergenic qualities. They can also be called Havapoos – and they’re very common.
