About Maltese-Havaneses

The Maltese-Havanese is a small happy go lucky pup that is a great reflection on both parents. While they are not always as tolerant of very small children as they are of the rest of the family, they can be easily socialized to accept rambunctious young ones and other pets. They will need daily exercise, but only approximately 30 minutes.

The coat on the Maltese-Havanese is hypoallergenic and sheds very little. With that in mind, they do require weekly to daily grooming of the silky hair to prevent debris build-up and matting. They have a generally light-colored coat, and as such, they are prone to developing tear stains. This can be mitigated by periodically wiping the area with a tissue.
