he Havana Silk Dog is a small dog, but a sturdy dog, covered with long, silky, wavy hair. The breed has been derived in recent years from Havanese. Breeders wanted to return the Havanese to its origins, and move away from dwarfism that had become rampant in the breed, and have thus created the Havana Silk Dog.
The Havana Silk Dog is a small, very social, drop coated companion dog breed. It enjoys the distinction of being the only purebred dog born of an effort to eliminate a genetic problem from within a breed. The efforts of a dedicated group of Havanese breeders resulted in the reemergence of the Havana Silk Dog, a breed of Cuban origin long thought to be extinct.
Havana Silk Dogs are a spirited breed who pack a lot of personality into a tiny body. They enjoy being the center of attention, but they don't demand it like other toy breeds. Havana Silk Dogs will instead do their best to charm and entertain a person in order to get a reaction.
