What is a HavaChon?


It is a fact that almost every recognized breed of dog today was created by the breeding of 2 or more different kinds of dogs. Over the centuries people needed dogs for various uses, and dogs were bred to have certain traits and characteristics based on those needs. They were also bred to eliminate negative characteristics that might cause health issues. 


The HavaChon is a cross between a purebred Bichon Frise and the purebred Havanese. The HavaChon is not currently an individual breed recognized by the AKC. Therefore, because it is not considered a purebred dog, it is called a Hybrid. Who knows, that definition may change over time as the demand for this wonderfully colorful HavaChon breed increases.

As with any Hybrid, the best way to determine the temperment, color, and size the dog will be is to look up all of the breeds in the cross. You will then know that you can get any combination of any of the charateristics found in either breed.


The Bichon Frise is a small white very fluffy dog that loves human company. It has a bit of an independent spirit, is very affectionate, intelligent, and has lots of energy. These little dogs do not yap. They have a very self assured and loving temperament that is addictive! Bichons are very easy to train. They love and truly need to be with people to be happy. They are their happiest when they are part of a family that takes them everywhere. They are good with other dogs, pets, and children. Used as watchdogs and to perform tricks, this breed is competitve and obedient. Their curly coat is non-shedding making it suitable for allergy sufferers. Grooming on a regular basis is necessary.

The Havanese is a highly trainable and intelligent breed. They are naturally affectionate which makes them an ideal family pet. Although they are a fairly small dog, they are very energetic and require some form of daily exercise. The silky non-shedding coat comes in a variety of colors. Regular grooming is necessary to keep the coat in top condition.

Purebreds or Hybrids?


As breeders of both purebred and hybrid puppies, we hear a lot of  irrational thoughts regarding whether or not the breeding of different purebreds to produce the desirable traits of a hybrid puppy is a responsible thing to do. The truth is, some hybrids make more sense that others. Breeding complimentary breeds for hybridization, like the Bichons and Havanese to produce HavaChon puppies, can improve the chances for good health and for less genetic disorders. If two breeds are not complimentary, then breeding these would in our opinion be irresponsible. You want to take into consideration the size, temperment and appearances of the two breeds. You do not want such dramatic differences that it will be hard to predict what your hybrid will be like.

We love the size, the temperament, the health, and the coat of the HavaChon. As we like to say, with Havachons, "Love comes in so many colors!" 

If you would like to here more about the Havachon personality, here's a link to what one havachon owner has to say:
