Description

The Havapoo, also known by the names Hava-Poo, Island Mini Doodle, Havadoodle, Havanoodle, Havanesepoo, Havanesedoodle, and Poovanese is a cross between the Havanese and Poodle breeds. They have a curly, medium to long coat, round button eyes, small black nose, hanging ears, and fluffy tail. Their coat can come in multiple colors including: red, brown, black, gray, and white.

Personality

The Havapoo is a friendly, affectionate, social, intelligent, energetic, and playful breed. Due to their playfulness, they enjoy playing with kids. However, due to its small size, should be supervised when playing with small children. The Havapoo is generally good with strangers, but do to their affectionate behavior, makes them less of a watchdog. They are also comfortable with small animals and other dogs.

Grooming Requirements

Like most other low-shedding breeds, it is enough to brush the Havapoo two to three times a week to ensure a clean coat and to prevent the coat from matting.

Exercise/Energy Level

Due to their intelligent and energetic nature, Havapoos need some space to run and play to avoid boredom, which can lead to exhibiting destructive behavior. It is best to take them out for a short walk or jog at least once a day and give them mental stimulation.

Additional Information

The Havapoo is an intelligent, friendly, and outgoing breed and therefore easily trainable. As with other dogs, it is also best to begin training from a young age to avoid behavioral issues in the future.
