Reasons to Consider a Havanese Hybrid

Jul 30, 2008
When you decide to add a new puppy to your family, there are plenty of choices that you will need to make. One of the hardest choices will be to decide what type of breed you want to look at. For some, a purebred dog is the only way to go. With purebred dogs that come from good ancestral lines, you have a reasonable idea of size, appearance and temperament of your adult dog. On the other hand, a mixed breed dog can keep you guessing until adulthood is reached.

One of the popular hybrids today is a Havanese mix. Havanese mixes can be crossed with a number of different breeds, many of which are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club. When cross-breeding is done correctly, the result can be a dog that is less prone to genetic defects and illnesses, and combines the best characteristics from two different breeds to give you the best family pet possible.

There are a number of Havanese mixes that are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club. One is the Havanese and the Lhaso Apso, which is also known as the Hava-Apso. Another common Havanese mix is the Havanese and the Bichon Frise, or the Havachon.

Some of the more popular Havanese mixes that are recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club include the Havanese and Lhasa Apso mix (Hava-Apso), the Havanese and Shih Tzu mix (Havashu) and the Havanese and Yorkshire Terrier combination (Havashire).

When you shop for a breeder of your Havanese mix breed, it is just as important to find a reputable breeder for your mix as it is to find one for a purebred. This will ensure that the lineage of your dog is one that is not tangled with many health or temperament issues. It will also give you the assurance that you dog truly is a mix between two purebreds.

For many folks, a Havanese mix might be the perfect choice in a family pet. You will be able to enjoy the positive characteristics of the Havanese, like the sweet temperament and intelligence, with the assets of another breed as well. You may also lessen the likelihood that your dog will suffer from some of the physical ailments that would typically plague a Havanese purebred.

If you are considering a Havanese mix breed, it is important that you search out your breeder very carefully. This will ensure that you end up with a dog that is indeed the designer dog that you were hoping for with the lineage that you are paying for. There are plenty of reputable breeders available, and you can find them through the Internet or talking to your veterinarian.

This will help you to know exactly what you can expect from your Havanese mix breed.
