She has a life span of 12 to 16 years and is a very responsive dog who can also have her hyper moments now and then. The Havashu is a designer dog, of which there are an increasing number around now today. Designer dogs are a very popular pet and have become almost a popular trend over the last 20 to 30 years. As well as the public, celebrities can be seen to have them too which increases their popularity. Most originate from America but some are being bred elsewhere like the UK, Canada and Australia. The majority are bred from two different purebreds and then names are created by blending part of each parents name.
The Havashu is cheerful, playful, social and very loving. She is alert and responsive and smart also. She likes to meet people, and while she can be stubborn and hyper sometimes she can also be sweet and becomes very attached to her family. She is a great family dog and while small is not overly fragile so she gets along fine with children.
