Havanese Roots

Momi and Popi went on a trip to Mediterranean Europe last April. They saw many little doggies in Southern Spain and Southern France that sure look similar to Havanese. Here is a picture of Momi holding one of these doggies in Cartagena, Spain.

What do you think, Havanese roots or not? Popi asked the elderly gentleman, "what breed is it?" The Senor said "perrito" (little dog breed)! This little doggie had typical Havanese personality - friendly and mild mannered. They said this type of doggie was very common in Mediterranean Spain and France. The doggies in Italy were much larger breeds and resembled the Labrador.

Many of the trading ships left from these Mediterranean ports to trade with Cuba and many of these "perritos" went along for the adventure.

Always nice to learn about our distant relatives!

besos, Ricky Ricardo

Here is a picture of another, but similar, doggie in Spain. On this doggie, the tail and ears are not quite right for typical Havanese.

I had heard that Havs came from mediterrian countries originally, and that their roots go back centuries. Seems like those perritos could very well indeed be cousins.

Thanks for sharing. I always love seeing pictures too!

By the way, how are you feeling, Ricky?
