The Havanese has a short upper arm with moderate shoulder layback and a straight top-line that rises slightly from the withers to the croup. The plumed tail is carried arched forward up over the back. The unique springy gait is a result of the breed's structure and playful, spirited personality. We carefully evaluate the structure of all our dogs and puppies before they are placed in a home, show or breeding program.
All of our dogs are AKC registered and screened for all recommended tests by OFA which include eye certification, patella, hips, BAER, and cardiac. The test results are registered with OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals).
