HRI Needs Fosters!
Sue Magan, our HRI liaison, informs us that HRI needs foster homes in the state of Illinois. If you are interested in providing a foster home to a rescued Havanese, please contact HRI via their website at www.havaneserescue.com Thank you!
The Windy City Havanese Club was formed in 2003 to promote and protect the interests of the Havanese breed of dog in the greater Chicago area. We are a recognized, local club by our parent club, the Havanese Club of America.
Our purpose is to serve the best interests of the Havanese breed in the greater Chicago area. To that end we provide social and educational opportunities for our club members to gather, with their dogs, at various locales around Chicago and its' suburbs. We hold quarterly meetings and publish a quarterly e-newsletter to keep our members informed on various issues important to Havanese owners specifically and all dog owners in general.
The Windy City Havanese Club does not run a Havanese rescue. We do lend our support to the following Havanese rescue services:
HALO Havanese Rescue - www.rescuedhavanese.org
Havanese Rescue, Incorporated -www.havaneserescue.com
The Havanese is the only breed of dog native to Cuba. It is recognized by the American Kennel Club and is assigned to the Toy Group.
This little dog comes in all colors and color combinations. The topline of the Havanese is distinctive, being straight but rising slightly from withers to rump rather than being level. The outline of the Havanese is also distinctive, calling for a dog that is slightly longer than tall, carrying its head high and tail carried arched over the back. It's silky, profuse, double coat can grow to a length of 9 inches or more if left untrimmed. The size ranges from 8 1/2 to 11 1/2 inches at the withers. This is a sturdy little dog who delights in being part of a family. Always ready for a romp in the yard or a snuggle on a lap, the Havanese is equally at home in an apartment as well as the country or suburbs. Intelligent, friendly, happy, curious and outgoing, the Havanese thrives in most situations but will not tolerate being left alone for prolonged periods or being ignored.

Windy City Havanese Club members took to the Open Sea (or at least the Chicago River and Lake Michigan!) on August 5. Humans and pups enjoyed lovely Chicago weather and smooth sailing!
