Havanese "TinkerBelle"

“SDP Tinker Belle”
AKC#TS21825704 / CKC#HA-04860448
8 pounds ; 8 inches

Tinker is a TINY chocolate/tan points Havanese girl who won my grand-daughters hearts the day she arrived! They insisted we call her TinkerBelle (their favorite character) and hence her name! This little gal may be small but she sure has a big brave heart! The very first time we went for a hike down to the creek, she didn’t waste time & went right in for a swim! Well, of course she had had LOTS of practice in every water bucket that we have & her little swimming pool.

Little Tinker doesn’t pass up a good swim very often! As you may see, most of the time she looks like a wet mop…

Tinker was bred by Jodie Spiker of “HavaCuddle Havanese” in Idaho. I was so impressed by her full brother (our famous Havanese daddy dog here ‘Jolly Jeep”) that I asked Jodie for a full sister from a later litter as soon as I had the opportunity! I was not disappointed! Tinker is bred to our Yorkshire Terrier for Havashire puppies.

A Little about the Havanese:

Just recently Registered by the AKC in 1995, Havanese are known as the National Dog of Cuba. They are a happy, outgoing, charming, small but sturdy dog whose temperament and trainability have made them excellent candidates for obedience training. Havanese are natural companion dogs: gentle and responsive. They become very attached to their human families and are excellent with children. Very affectionate and playful with a high degree of intelligence. These cheerful dogs are very sociable and will get along with everyone including people, dogs, cats and other pets. They live long lives, (14-15 years), and possess a kind spirit. They attach to their owners easily, making them “fantastic little friends.” They can have a little bit of a shaggy appearance, but when brushed, are soft as a down pillow. Havanese are gentle, kind little dogs that are ideal for owners who want a little buddy to follow them around.
Havanese are responsive and friendly. They are intelligent, faithful, and devoted to their families. They are natural clowns as well. Havanese are affectionate and living to please. They are attentive, quiet and gentle, but still love to play. They get along with almost everyone, including children and other animals. They will play tirelessly with children. Havanese require minimal exercise, making play sessions an easy outlet for their energy.

Learning Rate – High; Obedience – High; Problem Solving – High.

The Havanese is a non-shedding, hypoallergenic double-coated breed with soft hair, both on outer and undercoat. Adult hair coat reaches 6 to 8 inches, and has a pearly sheen.

The gait is unique – lively & ‘springy” which accentuates the happy character of the Havanese. Hence her name “Dance With Me”! The Havanese gives a rugged impression of a little dog, sturdy, and while a small breed, it is not fragile.
They are easy to obedience train and get along well with other dogs. This curious dog loves to observe what is going on. The Havanese have a long reputation of being circus dogs, probably because it learns quickly and enjoys doing things for people. It is not their nature to bark a lot. Havanese are good watch dogs – making sure to alert you when a visitor arrives, but will quickly welcome the guest once it sees you welcome them. Havanese live for your every word and gesture.

I have several example photos of what the Havashire (Havanese / Yorkie) puppies look like. As yet there are few breeders who breed them with the Havanese being very new to the USA & an expensive breed. I am FULLY confident, after studying these two breeds for some time, that they will be an awesome combination! See my Havashire Puppies photo album for examples. Be sure to see our “Past Puppies” albums to see each Mommy’s past puppies at all ages.
