Havanese

Judge: Ms C Paine (Australia)  

It was a pleasure to judge a lovely entry of Havanese. The winners represented the breed with correct type and overall balance and proportions. A few individuals lacked body and therefore weren’t as sturdy as required. Overall, the entry had lovely temperaments and most were beautifully presented.
