The chocolate color in the havanese is rare in that it is a genetically recessive trait. This means that two copies of the recessive bb gene are necessary to result in the birth of a chocolate pup. The chocolate refers to not only the varying shades of coat colors and patterns, but to the the brown/liver colored pigment of the nose, lips and paw pads as well. Of course, being recessive does not make the chocolate havanese 'better' than any of the other beautiful colors out there! It is just an option among the many possibilities and I happen to adore it. That being said, this breed's plentiful color palette is a gift all it's own.

Congratulations on discovering the cutest toy breed, the Havanese! We are Michigan AKC breeders of these BEAUTIFUL puppies, white and rare chocolate too! Havanese dogs are family oriented and perfect for both apartment and country living! They are hypo-allergenic, non-shedding, non-yappy and a remarkably sturdy toy breed. Havanese dogs love playing with children and other pets, yet they are also content to spend the day relaxing on the couch or on your lap! If you have love to give, they are the ideal pets for families young and old, regardless of where you live!
Havanese are highly intelligent people pleasers and quick learners. They are excellent watch dogs: barking just enough to let you know someone has arrived, but not more than necessary... I love that about them! Havanese dogs have a uniquely silken, non-shedding coat, there is simply no lapdog softer & more cuddly than a havanese! Their bright eyes, joyful grin, bouncy gait and flowing coat tend to make them stand out in a crowd. Truly, in every way, the Havanese are puppy perfection and an absolute JOY to share your home and your life with!
