Havachon Dog Breed Info

The Havachon dog breed is not a purebred as it is a cross between the Havanese and the Bichon Frise. As with any mixed breed you will need to learn about both the Bichon Frise and the Havanese if you are looking to see the temperament of the Havachon due to the fact that any mix in characteristics can appear. The American Canine Hybrid Club does recognize the Havachon mixed dog breed. A lot of dog breeders are breeding multi generation crosses and not all designer Havachon hybrid dogs are currently bred at a 50 to 50 percent purebred rate.

A lot of individuals consider hybrid dogs healthier because of the gene pool mix and this is the case with the Havachon as well. Most breeders are thinking about the heteroses effect combined with hybrid vigor. Other breeders will disagree with this because there is a focus on the genetic defects that can be transmitted from one generation to the other. No matter the case, the dog is important here and the Havachon is definitely a delightful small dog breed that is full of live and love to give to its masters.
