"Gadget is our 11-month-old Boston Terrier / Havanese mix puppy. We rescued him from a dog shelter in Ohio when he was 9 months old. We had his DNA tested using Embark and it came back that Gadget is mix of two pure bred dogs. He is 50% Boston Terrier (probably his mother) and 50% Boston Terrier (probably his father). He is the sweetest, most loving, confidant and playful pup. He very much wants to please us and has been very easy to train. He gets along with everyone (adults, children, dogs and cats) and is typically very calm. He’s not at all aggressive but does enjoy chasing squirrels and playfully pestering our cat."

Other Names
  • Bostonese

The Hava-Boston is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Boston Terrier and the Havanese. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"Our puppy Bella is approximately 12 weeks old in this picture. She was rescued from an Ohio puppy mill. She is exhibiting traits of the Boston Terrier in that she is very alert and gentle. Her coat is brindle colored,short, sleek and soft, with long black puppy hair. Her tail is long like the Havanese. She is sensitive to your tone of voice. She only barks when she plays with the other dogs or when she's unhappy about being left alone. She then whines with a high pitch. Bella has been easily training with her 14 year old person who has taught her to sit, lay down, and fetch after only a week. She is very energetic and playful with people and other pets. She is very friendly and loves to meet new people and dogs, and loves to cuddle in your lap or at least be touching you in some way. Bella is very eager to please and loves to learn new things. She is paper training very well and loves to be outside or inside wherever her people are. She is very agile and leaps off the back porch rather than taking the stairs in her hurry to go on outdoor adventures. She requires lots of interaction with her family and is very affectionate."
