This Havanese takes a rest after walking with the NAMI YS Youth Society team.

The Havanese is a dog breed of the Bichon type, developed from the now extinct Blanquito de la Habana (“little white dog of Havana”). The Blanquito descended from the also now extinct Bichon Tenerife, which was introduced to the Canary Islands by the Spanish. The Blanquito was eventually cross-bred with other Bichon types, including the Poodle, to create what is now known as the Havanese. They are sometimes referred to as “Havana Silk Dogs,” though this was originally just another name for the Blanquito de la Habana. The Havanese is the National dog of Cuba.

The Havanese is small in size and sturdy in structure with a tail carried up over its back and ears that drop and fold. The coat is abundant, long, and silky and comes in all colors. The Havanese has a spirited personality and a curious disposition, and is notable for its springy gait, a characteristic that distinguishes the breed from all others. The Havanese is considered an ideal family pet and a true companion dog. They are highly adaptable to almost any environment, and their only desire is to be with their human companions. Because of their strong social needs, Havanese will not thrive in an environment where they are isolated for several hours each day.


NAMI Mercer hosted its 4th NAMIWalk on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at Rider University in Lawrenceville New Jersey. Hundreds of people (and dogs) from all over New Jersey walked the 5k walk. There was food, music and vendors from the community. We got to see old friends and make new friends. The weather was beautiful and a good time was enjoyed by all.
