Did you know there are four types of Havanese?

Just came across a very interesting article, and wanted to share this with you all. When I was looking out for a havanese puppy I visited a few different breeders, and it did look like different breeders had very different havanese types. At the time I didn't know very much about the breed, and I never had met a hava in person (most people in the Netherlands have never heard of hava's, and I almost never see one on streets). Some breeders had hava's I really liked, others absolutely not, to be honest. I found this to be really strange and thought it was me lol. This article explains everything!

Sena, You have a very pretty name. In Holland you have a Maiden Effort and Mucho Bravo, these are very elite kennels in the Havanese world along with Pillow Talk in Germany. My Nephew has a Maiden Effort dog, of course here in America we have many kennels some really wonderful some ok, and then the rest. But Holland is small and has several great kennels. You are right about Havanese looking soooo different my girl and boy look different in the nose and hair, everything else is the same only in my boy he is supper sized (very American) and my girl is very petite (very European, hehehe). I really love the red colors of the Havanese in Europe.

Thnx .

I have met quite a few of Mucho Bravo dogs on havanese walks the Havanese club organizes twice a year. A friend of mine has one sweet Mucho Bravo boy. I must however say that I prefer petite hava's like my Fedja is (11 lbs, and 10" and that for a boy!). He is on a small side for a male hava even being European lol. All MB dogs i have seen looked sturdy and heavy boned. They are nice dogs with good personalities, just not my type.
Maiden Effort is not recognized kennel with a Havanese Club Netherland. I don't know why.
Here one kennel that I think has the most beautiful hava's in the country

I'm in love with Diddl .

The Buenos-amigos dogs are beautiful. One of their first champs was from A Maiden Effort, bred by Anja Van Haarlem. My girl is on the small side too, she weighs just under 9 pds my boy weighs 17.5, I agree the kennel can really make a difference in size. My Nephew keeps telling me I need to get a dog from Europe. I keep telling him we have many good ones her too. He is Biased.
