I'm very surprised this one wasn't on here. I babysitted two of these things and they would not stop MOVING. No, I didn't say playing, I said MOVING. They wouldn't take a break at all and they slept for only like 2 hours at the most. They kept bothering my Maltese, and they kept trying to get me to play with them ALL DAY. I was so sleepy and tired. Never again. - Mcgillacuddy

13 Havanese Havanese The Havanese, a breed of Bichon type, is the national dog of Cuba, developed from the now extinct Blanquito de la Habana.

My daughter has a havanese and he wags his tail when you smile at him. He has real style! He doesn't just jump off the sofa -- he leaps up into the air with such joy that it's fun to watch him! He throws his toys up into the air and then shakes them like crazy when he catches them! He stretches out in ecstasy when you pet him and gazes up at you with love! When company comes he doesn't just wag his tail, he wags his entire body! I love that dog!

I own a Havanese, he is the best thing ever! I highly recommend this dog - ItsThaFantasticJosh
