Puck is a Yorkie Havanese mix. Is he the child of a kennel house romance or is he designer dog? I will go for the designer dog theory because this is such a great combination. This little boy has a Yorkie body shape and personality. The Havanese in him gives him a wonderful soft coat. Patrick is a sweetie - Yorkie playful and confident, he has a terrier’s determination to be among the top dogs in the household. In my home with 20 dogs, he lives well with others but is determined to show that he is not intimidated by the larger fellow. He is shy and submissive in new situations. His confidence will show in about a week.
Puck has been neutered. Rabies and all vaccines current, on heartworm preventative, this little boy is ready to go home. He will do best in a home with older children who know how to be with a little dog. If Puck is the boy for you….

Puck was housetrained in his original home and uses the dog door here. He will need to learn a new routine in his new home. The key to housetraining is expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. If you will establish a routine, take your dog out regularly, praise good behavior and use a crate appropriately for two weeks, you have a housetrained dog.

About the breed: Such is the popularity of the little Yorkshire Terrier that he has the honor of being at the number two position on the AKC breed popularity list. One of the world's smallest dogs, the Yorkshire Terrier is a cheerful, sociable, and adaptable little creature. Affection and loyal, yet courageous and confident, this is a dog that is suited to both experienced and inexperienced owners. These dogs make great companions and loving pets, with their love for being pampered or cuddling up with their owner. Yet, in true terrier style they have plenty of spirit, are agile, and have a very inquisitive nature. Training the Yorkshire Terrier shouldn't prove too much of a problem, as he is very intelligent and quick to learn. The Yorkshire Terrier can be very possessive of his food and belongings. These little dogs will certainly bark to raise an alarm, making them effective watchdogs. Justdogbreeds.com
Havanese are natural companion dogs: gentle and responsive. They become very attached to their human families and are excellent with children. Very affectionate and playful with a high degree of intelligence. These cheerful dogs are very sociable and will get along with everyone including people, dogs, cats and other pets. They are easy to obedience train and get along well with other dogs. This curious dog loves to observe what is going on. They are sensitive to the tone of one's voice and will not listen if they sense that they are stronger minded than their owner, however they will also not respond well to harsh discipline. Owners need to be calm, yet possess an air of natural authority. The Havanese have a long reputation of being circus dogs, probably because it learns quickly and enjoys doing things for people.
Bichon Havanese originated in Cuba from an earlier breed known as Blanquito de la Habana (also called Havanese Silk Dog - a now extinct breed) The Bichon Havanese adorned and enlivened the homes of aristocratic Cubans during the the 18th & 19th centuries. Bichon Lapdogs were being brought to Cuba in 17th century from Europe, they adapted to climate and customs of Cuba. Eventually, these conditions gave birth to a different dog, smaller than its predecessors, with a completely white coat of a silkier texture. This dog was the Blanquito de la Habana. In the 19th century, the Cubans took to liking the French and German Poodles, which were crossed with the existing Blanquito to create today's Bichon Havanese. In the development of the Havanese, the Blanquito was much more dominant than the poodle.
