Havapoos are available in many different colors and combinations and can be plain, two-tone or three-tone. These colors include black, white, brown, beige, gray, silver, apricot, “blue” (dark in the hair shaft, like black or brown, but a mixture of colors). at the root).
Depending on what breed your Havapoo appears to prefer, their coat may be dense and curly, like their Poodle parent, or long and silky, like their Havanese parent.
While the Havapoo inherits the Havapoo coat, there are two ways that the coat can be styled naturally. To keep it long and silky, frequent brushing is necessary. If you don’t brush the Havanese-style coat regularly, it will develop natural felted cords. Havapoos should be brushed several times a week and washed every one to two months.
Poodles were bred to be water scavengers, so your Havapoo may do well in the water, but always be sure to watch him. Poodle-style fur naturally repels water. Your dog will still need to be wiped off if he gets caught in the rain, but it will be faster than other dogs. Havanese have an average tolerance for hot and cold temperatures, so be sure to provide shelter and water in case of extreme weather conditions.
As these dogs are smaller, they may need an extra winter jacket or sweater when it is very cold, especially as they get older.
