How much does your Havadoggie weigh?

How much does your Havadoggie weigh?

I would like to limit this to dogs that are adults, about 18 months and older.

I have separated the poll into males and females. I presume that males are generally going to weigh more than females, but we shall see.

You are able to vote more than once if you have more than one dog.

The poll is open to Hava pure-breds and Hava mixes.

The results should be interesting!

His weight varies from 14.8 to 15.3, so I say 15 pounds. He is 11" at the shoulder. He is on the larger side for a Havanese. We leave him in a full, thick coat year round, so he looks even bigger. He was the biggest in his litter (3 males, 2 females) I don't know his birth weight.

Thanks. I keep trying to see a larger picture of the handsome one and I can't figure out this forum. He is the size of my Bichon Frise that passed away. I thought he was perfect!
My Shadow(Havanese) is 11 inches tall and weighs 10.4 lbs. at 2 years old. He seems skinny to me. When I got him at 10 months, he was only 7 lbs. and needed to put some weight on. He had been shaved right down by his former owner and was not very attractive.
Thanks for doing the survey. It's interesting to see the range of weights.

According to Ricky's Vet, Ricky is a long and lanky, big boned Havanese. When Ricky is wet in his bath, he looks like a long legged Dachshund. The Vet thinks Ricky is perfect weight.

Rather than relying on the Internet, I would check with Shadow's Vet on what recommendation he would give for his weight. A dog's structural anatomy with all that hair can be so deceiving with regards to their weight.

Ricky is beautiful! I love his hair. If my high-spirited boy were loose in that great garden, he have all those pretty flowers dug up in no time at all! I think Ricky would be a willing helper. He has a glow of mischief in those eyes!
I "think" my Wildman will grow his hair out after the summer months! The vet thinks his weight is perfect for his bone structure. He is a petite boy with a lot of energy. He is not a dog to refuse a bit of food of any type. Any type of medication is a different tale of woe and misery. It takes the jaws of life to get his mouth open if he does not wish to take a pill!
I didn't realize the strongwilled nature of the Havanese!

You have nooooooo idea! "El travieso" in Ricky's signature below means "the mischiefmaker" in Spanish. Ricky prefers high energy, high spirited dogs, of whatever breed, to match his energy level. He gets bored quickly with low energy dogs.

Yes, some Havanese can be very strong willed, at times stubborn, and always one step ahead in thinking. It is in their nature because they are so smart. The trick is teaching them discipline starting at an early age and redirection when they are exhibiting undesirable behavior (like tearing up a flower garden).
