I have what is supposed to be a Havanese, looks and acts like a Havanese, is very sweet, etc., etc. One thing though -- he is 25 pounds now! When I got him, he was a rescue dog and weighed 22.5 pounds and was thin. Everything I've read says they weigh a lot less. Height to his withers is 11.25". I think he needs to lose about 2 pounds. Is he a Havanese? I also thought maybe he was a Tibetan Terrier, however, his legs are short like a Havanese.

I have a purebread Havanese and he is 3 1/2 now and 24 lbs. He is at his healthiest when he is 22 lbs. Havanese can get this big! I have a second 1 1/2 yr. old and he is only 9 lbs. Really, it all depends on the parents, but there is quite a range! They are sweet, funny dogs though, aren't they?
Heike Kaden -
Your maxi-Havanese is just darling! Maybe a little bearded Collie a couple of generations back. Surely there is some other dog beside Havanese in him.
I have a Havanese, pedigree dates back to Pillowtalk`s, she weighs 5 kg.
Well, unusual situations, require an unusual handling - Your Maxi-Havanese is a very special one, this kind can not be bought anywhere. How about this?
He looks a little like my other dog, I brought him to Germany from Turkey, a big big darling.
All the best for you and Maxi-Havanese,
best regards from Germany

Yes they are sweet, comical, loyal, sensitive, friendly,highly intelligent, prideful breed. We love our Havanese as if she were another child or sibling....
Our 3 1/2 year old fluctuates between 22 to 25 lbs. The Vet says her weight is perfectly normal. Most of her weight is in her full coat..lol.
I am a new breeder of Havanese. My sister has been breeding this breed for 20 years. They should be around 14-17 pounds. They are now being bred for tiny. My first Havanese is under 8 lbs and 8-1/2 inches high. She is a little thin but my vet said to give her pot pies to put weight on. They are a lovely dog. My second girl is 14 lbs and seems to be a perfect weight. I have found that NurtiSource is the best food nutrition wise and particularly for their coats.
