Havapoo temperament

Friendly: These dogs have never met a stranger! They love both “their” people and every other person on the planet. You won’t have to worry about your Havapoo tearing into strangers.

Affectionate: Havapoos are free with their affections and show them unconditionally. They love to cuddle and play with their people.

Like their Havanese and Poodle parents, Havapoo puppies have smarts. They are intelligent and eager to please, which makes them a breeze to train.

Havapoos have playful, sparkling, effervescent personalities. This, combined with energy and friendliness, makes them one of the best dogs for kids. But unlike most kids, Havapoos are not hyperactive. They are moderately active and fairly low maintenance when it comes to exercise needs.

If you need a fierce, loyal watchdog, don’t get a Havapoo. They are way too sweet to ever make good guard dogs. Havapoos generally get along with everyone, humans and other animals alike.

Alertness: Havapoos tend to have a keen sense of awareness and can make good watchdogs. They might alert their owners to any unfamiliar sounds or visitors.

Adaptable: These dogs can often adapt well to various living situations, including apartments and houses with yards. Their smaller size inherited from the Havanese parent makes them well-suited for indoor living.

It’s important to note that individual dogs can vary, even within the same breed or crossbreed. When considering a Havapoo or any other dog, it’s recommended to spend time with the puppy’s parents or meet the puppy itself if possible to get a sense of its temperament. Early socialization, proper training, and consistent care will also contribute significantly to the development of a well-adjusted and balanced Havapoo.

Havapoo Breed history

Havapoos made their debut sometime after the 1980s when designer breeds exploded in popularity. So they have been around for thirty years or so. Nobody knows the exact origins of the Havapoo, but both its parents have long, reliable histories as companions and pets.

The Havanese is an ancient Cuban native. It gets its name from the capital of Cuba, Havana. Colonists bred the Havanese to be a lapdog for Spanish nobles.

Havanese dogs are intelligent and trainable. They make fantastic trick dogs. Their nickname is the “Velcro dog” because they stick to their humans like velcro.

The Poodle originated in Germany. Poodles were originally intended to retrieve waterfowl, but the breed’s winning personality soon made it a favorite companion of French aristocrats.

Poodles are smart and active and come in three sizes: standard, miniature, and toy. They often rank in the top 10 most famous and trendy dog breeds. You can trace a lot of the Havapoo’s good nature back to its poodle lineage.

A few mixes similar to the Havapoo include the Cavapoo and Havashu.

Havapoo Average size

Each Havapoos’ size and appearance vary depending on its parents. But in general, they stand 8-11″ at the shoulder and weigh 7-13 lbs.

Average Havapoo lifespan

Havapoos have an average life expectancy of 12-15 years.

Havapoo body features

Like all mixed breeds, a Havapoo puppy’s appearance depends on its parents. They generally have medium-long coats. Their coats are thick, luxuriant, and somewhere on the spectrum of wavy to curly. They come in any color, from white to apricot to black. 

They also have small, rounded heads with dark eyes (usually dark brown) and little black shoe-button noses. 

grooming Your Havapoo Puppy

Havapoos don’t shed much. But daily brushing is a good idea to keep their curly coats from getting matted and dirty. It’s also a good idea to bathe them at least monthly, and to get them clipped from time to time.

Keeping Your Havapoo Puppy Healthy

As a mixed breed, Havapoos can inherit health problems from either side of their ancestry. Some common issues may include:

  • Cataracts – Common disorder in Poodles, where the lens of one eye becomes cloudy. Can be removed through surgery.
  • Patella Luxation – This is a fancy name for a dislocated kneecap, and it is common in small dogs.
  • Hypothyroidism – The thyroid does not produce enough hormones. Fairly rare but more common among Havanese dogs.

Like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs. Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.

Typical Havapoo Allergens

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells.  These skin cells are shed by any animal, including humans.

If you struggle with allergies, good news! Many consider the Havapoo to be hypoallergenic. 

However, there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic dog. If you have someone in your home with animal allergy concerns, it is good to consult your family physician.
