This poll has been up for almost a year now. We have enough respondents to see some nice sine curves for both males and females. Using my experience with statistical analysis, most Havanese, on HF at least which in my opinion are pretty typical, fall into the 12 to 13.9 pound weight size. Using statistical weighting (I don't want to bore you with details) most females will be closer to a 12 pound weight while most males will fall closer to a 14 pound weight. So generalizing, a typical male will be about 2 pounds heavier than a typical female.

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.
I straightened your pic.

A 16lb dog is not a big dog. It's a small dog. She's perfect and gorgeous. My Havanese is around that weight. Patti isn't a fragile tiny dog. She's an easy dog to play with, she loves to play, run, jump and tease us.

So sorry! I voted and then saw that this should be for adults. Please take out one vote for male under 8 lbs. (FYI-Archie is five months, and expected to be 8-10 lbs when grown.)

For me, this was very accurate. Oliver was 4 lbs even at 11 weeks, 6 lbs at 16 weeks, and is between 10.5- 11 lbs at 15 months. He’s been this weight for a long time now. If he gets to 12 lbs that would be double, and who knows, he might. But the formula is +/- 10-15 percent. My breeder’s girls (from this sire & dam) tend to be small—8-9 lbs max and the boys are usually 10-11 lbs, so Ricky’s Popi must be right with the size difference between males and females!
