common colors

Hello everyone,
I am a novice . What are the most common colors found in the havanese breed? There appears to be so many colors. Also are black and white or brown and white common color combinations? I am not stuck on a specific color, it's just curiosity.

Not that I know for sure but it seems that black with white is the most common, based on the puppies I saw when shopping.
But what I didn't realize is that they can change color dramatically as the puppy matures into a dog. Mine at 10 months was black with a big white V on his chest and a white patch on his chin. Now at 2.5 yrs., the white markings are almost gone.

Thanks. I live in the southeast and this seems to be a common color among the breeders I am researching. Color isn't a high priority. I want a sweet and lovable pup.

I think black and white (in all combinations) is probably most common, followed by sable (in all variations). After that, everything else.

I like the black and white combination. But all the colors look beautiful.

The “best” color is “yours”. 😊

I had my heart set on a male that would be 50% black, 50% white. Just like a friend's Havanese!
One thing I knew was that I definitely did not want mostly black. The search was on. I could not find the 50%/50% male or female. Ended up with almost 100% black! All of my previous dogs were Bichon Frise(so all white), so go figure!
Havanese are like a box of assorted chocolates, they are all good!

Thanks for responding because right now I feel similar. I had a bichon (white), my yorkie started black and tan but lightened as she aged. In my mind I don't want a 100% black. My heart is set on a female. Color isn't too important except not wanting 100% black. However, just as you prove things can definitely change!

Our Havanese is mostly black with some white at (mostly behind) the paws, under the ears and a stripe up her backside and tail. One advantage of a black dog is you don’t have to work as hard to keep them clean bc you’d don’t know exactly how dirty they are! She also has weepy eyes which I wipe regularly but would probably have some staining if she were lighter. I initially thought I wanted a lighter color but now that we have her I wouldn’t change a thing!
