Havanese

The Havanese is a breed of dog of the Bichon type, which do not shed.

These dogs were developed from the now extinct Bichon Tenerife, which was introduced to the Canary Islands by the Spanish and later to other islands and colonies of Spain by sailors.

They are very playful dogs and good with older, more considerate children.
