HAVANESE HISTORY

Havanese dogs are an old breed of the Bichon family and may be referred to as the Bichon Havanese or as the Havana Silk Dog. Havanese dogs go back to Plinius (23 to 79 B.C.). The earliest references to the ancestors of the modern line are in the Mediterranean region, on the island of Malta, and the breed may have originated there. Spain and Italy played an integral role in bringing the Havanese dogs to the Western Hemisphere. Sometimes known as the Havana Silk Dog, wealthy Cubans made popular today's Havanese. Descending from the dogs that found a permanent home in Cuba, many of today's Havanese was smuggled into the U.S. after the Cuban revolution in 1959.
