Your Havi and mine look like twins. Mine has a black face with white whiskers and her back markings look almost exactly like yours. We have a 60lb Golden-doodle she hangs out with.

My havanese is 9.6 lbs at 1year 4 months. He is a tiny little guy. Funny after bathtime because he loses all his fluff and you can see his tiny little body.

!0-11 pounds at 15 months. the range is due to different scales. one scale was 10.1 lbs, the other 11 even within the same week! he's been this weight a long time, which is right where the breeder thought.

Yeah, scales will only give you a "ballpark" figure when you talking about one pound difference. And it also depends on whether the dog is carrying a load of poop and/or when he has eaten or drank water relative to when he is weighed. Weighing just gives a rough idea.

The poll has sufficient response to gain a general indication of the range of Havanese weights. I think this can be helpful to anyone curious or concerned about their dogs weight. In general, it appears that males of the species weigh one to two pounds more than the females of the species.

Thanks everyone for participating in the poll. I will leave the poll open for further responses, but I think the trend has been set.

An interesting note is that several experienced breeders I know choose stud dogs on the SLIGHTLY smaller side and bitches right in the middle of the standard. (all else being equal) This keeps the size of puppies (and the breed in general) more moderate, and a bitch with a little more size has room for more puppies and often an easier time whelping than one on the bottom of the size range.

So, and this is PURE speculation... it may ALSO be that more of those bigger boys end up as pets, even if they are otherwise show/breed quality specimens. (besides the fact that you just NEED many fewer boys for breeding )

In my opinion you can consider them fully grown at around 18 months but it can vary.

I will leave the poll open indefinitely, but with over 100 responses I think you can see what the general range is for both males and females.

Corazon at 15 months old weighs 7.6 kilos, which is 16.7 pounds, putting her in the very top weight class for your poll. She is muscular and strong and absolutely not fat ( she will regularly and voluntarily go a day or more without eating )
I only know one other Havanese ,also a female and she is smaller and lighter . So I think Cora is just a big girl.

Sorry about the sideways photo , but does she look big to you? I know three is nothing to really give perspective of course.
I should add she is a purebred, I have the papers and the kennels are well known here in Australia.
