The Havachon is produced when a Havanese and a Bichon Frise are crossbred. This adorable little hypoallergenic fluff-muffin is perfectly suited for families of any size and are eager to please, highly adaptable and great fun. As they love attention, they are great for first-time dog owners. The following Havachon information can be supplemented by visiting the pages for both parent breeds.
Havachons tend to be highly intelligent — perhaps too much so, especially if they have a strong Havanese streak running through them. They aren't usually dogs that strive to be "leader of the pack," but with enough of the Havanese side and not enough exercise, attention and mental stimulation, they can quickly and easily dominate your household as well as turn to destructive behavior because of the very intelligence that makes them appealing.
Your Havachon, regardless of how stubborn she may be, is sure to be doting, friendly and active. Curious, affable and a desire to please may best define the personality of a Havachon.
Havachons are highly active dogs that are small but need a fair amount of exercise even as they tend to find ways to burn if off by themselves by investigating everything, everyone and everywhere to sate their curiosity. They aren't strong and they don't make good guard dogs, but they are somewhat relentless in their search for new friends, mental stimulation and constant attention.
