The Havana Bichon is a strong, small dog with short legs and a soft, thick coat. Her bushy tail slopes towards her back. The dog is lively, sweet, and has an elegant gait.
The line of the withers is straight, uneven, slightly raised in the opposite direction. The length of the body from the front of the chest to the tip of the rump is about two-thirds longer than the height at the withers. Ribs well sprung, deep, and distant. The sides are wrinkled. The loin is strong, the buttocks are well rounded.
The Hawaiian Bichon has a quiet and gentle character, although he loves high-profile events. These dogs are affectionate, prefer to stand next to the owner or stay in the same room with him. Warn the owner about the approach of strangers. They love being in the company of other Hawaiian Bichons. Smart, easy to train, and attentive to the owner. The combination of large dark eyes, drooping ears, long hair, and the adorable habit of tilting your head when listening gives these dogs a charm.
