The little dog of Havana

The Havanese is the only canine breed native to Cuba and was mostly unknown to the rest of the world until the revolution in 1959.
Browse pedigrees and photos, analyse health and pedigrees, and contribute information to the archive.
I have been around dogs since the late 1950s and can only imagine what it would have meant to have this resource available then.
