First,let me say that I do not breed short-haired Havanese pups, but over the years, we have gotten a couple at random in a litter. They are adorable and sweet and precious little little ones who deserve a wonderful and loving home.
A SH (short hair) Havanese puppy is every bit a full blooded wonderful, happy, silly Havanese Dog. They do have a different look and resemble a spaniel in some ways since their muzzle hair is short and leg furnishings are shorter. Their coat on their back is usually about the length of a Havanese in a 'puppy clip'.
For the owner who does not have issues with allergies (as SH's do shed) and who do not want to be bothered with frequent visits to the groomer for that popular 'puppy clip', a SH Havanese can be a good alternative. No trips to the groomer, every 8 weeks will be needed with a SH Havanese, and since 99% of 'pet owners' and retired 'show dogs' get put into a short clip anyway, the short coat should not pose a problem for most buyers,
