Havanese #8 breed in NYC!

AKC's 2008 statistics are in and the Havs are in the top 10 for NYC.


They're #36 overall...one spot higher than 2007.

I'm glad people are discovering the joy that is the Havanese, but I truly hope they don't grow much more in popularity - for their own sake.

Darn it! I'm like you. I hate to see the popularity (although I can understand why). It only means more indiscriminate breeding and puppy mill puppies.

Well, if you look at actual city registration (not AKC), Havanese were the number 1 newly-registered dog in 2007 in New York (not sure if the 2008 numbers are out). They are VERY popular here. I never get the "Is that a shi tzu?" question... it's always, "Oh is that a havanese? I've never seen one in that color" LOL!

I agree, though, it's not good that they're this popular as most of the Hav owners I meet in the city bought them from pet stores. I try to educate people as much as I can, so hopefully it will sink in!

#8 now? Zoiks!

I tell you - even though I am almost as far as you can get in the continental U.S., I can't even count how many NY inquiries I get for puppies on a regular basis. It amazes me.
