Country of breed: CUBA

Patronage: FCI

A brief history:
This breed comes from the Western Mediterranean region and has developed along the coasts of Spain and Italy.
It seems that these dogs were imported early on to Cuba by Italian sailors.
By mistake, because the most common color of these dogs (tobacco color – brown – red) created a legend about the origin of this breed native of Havana, capital of Cuba.
Historical events caused the complete disappearance of the old line Havanese in Cuba. Few offspring survived in the United States after having been exported from the island illegally.
