One person's mischievious is another person's playful or fun loving, and certainly can be affected by training. I suspect most of the people on this site go to great lengths to make sure they have well trained and well mannered puppies and dogs. Lists like that are generally derived from the entire population of dog owners that probably don't spend more than a few hours on socialization and puppy classes.
I have no problem Havanese being on the list. Gibbs loves to take our socks and play chase. He'll push his bone/toy/chew etc. off the couch and expect us to pick it up and give it back, only to push it off once we sit back down. He'll ring the "potty bell" whenever the door is closed and he just wants it opened. We could probably train these behaviors out of him, but I find them cute and part of his personality. Some might consider them mischievious, others might not.
