These are some of the names of the cross breeds that are created by bad breeders.
Such breeders create a mixture of the lovely little Havanese with a much different breed, such as the Cocker Spaniel.
Havanese range in size from 8 -15 lbs.
Cocker Spaniels range in size from 18-33 lbs.
When a bad breeder crosses a larger dog that has a square body shape, with a smaller dog that has rectangular body shape, the breeder is creating trouble in the new cross breed puppies. The off spring may be destined for a lifetime of trouble! The mixing of body shapes is doubly damaging to the off spring, if one of breeds in the mixture is a heavy bodied dog, and the other breed in the mixture, is a much lighter bodied dog.
The square carriage, or square body shape of the Cocker Spaniel, is symmetrical and balanced to carry more weight than the rectangular carriage, or rectangular body shape of the little light-weight Havanese. Since the square Cocker Spaniel carriage is symmetrical and can carry a larger bone and muscle mass than the long backed Havanese breed, crossing them is dangerous! What if the lighter frame characteristics are inherited by the off spring and the back is composed of lightweight small diameter bones but the larger body mass is attached to the light-weight bone?
Bad breeders are looking for trouble when they cross Cocker Spaniels with Havanese.
The Havanese have very long backs and Havanese have longer back legs than front legs. As you can readily understand, the Havanese's longer back legs put a lot of pressure on the back just below the neck area. The Havanese body structure is just balanced to carry their own little body and bone size. It cannot support a body size that is twice its normal weight. The Havanese walk with a lifted gait, due to their longer back legs. Havanese are lighter boned than the Cockers. And, Havanese have far less musculature than Cocker Spaniels. If the cross breed, or so called Havaco, ends up with the large heavy body of the Cocker Spaniel and the smaller diameter bone and long back of the Havanese, the dog may eventually be unable to support his own weight.
The longer back legs of the Havanese can create enormous trouble and back strain if the offspring's body structure is not the larger size necessary to carry the size of the musculature! The so-called Havacos may quickly develop back problems with severe disc ruptures and debilitating injury. Many of the dogs may have to be put down prior to 4-8 years of age, from severe back problems.
It is unfortunate but it is a reality we must deal with when facing the continuing pain of a little one. The breeders commit unaccountable acts posing serious risks to the little ones they foist upon the world.
Many of the off spring may eventually rupture back discs in normal play. Running, climbing stairs, and jumping may become life threatening ventures after the first one to two back disc ruptures! A couple of back disc ruptures can create a critical situation in which the dog must be put down.
Pregnancy, itself, may be a risk to such an anatomically unbalanced little creature and may create many back disc ruptures! Those that go on to have puppies may rupture back discs in puppy delivery, and, or, while twisting and turning to care for the lilttle babies when they are nursing!
When Havanese are bred to Cocker Spaniels, the off spring may end up with the very large teeth of the Cocker Spaniel and the much smaller jaw line of the Havanese. Large teeth in a small jaw equals very crooked teeth. Teeth that are extremely crowded together end up causing gum problems and bacterial issues. Swollen gums create a serious health hazard and allow bacteria to enter the blood stream and lodge in the heart valves of the off spring. Such siutations frequently lead to early death from heart failure. Remember, we are not talking about the normal and occassional minor crowding of teeth, which occurs in all breeds. We are talking about teeth that are meant to be in a head [that should be] twice the size of the head they are in.
Cocker teeth are roughly twice the size of Havanese teeth.
Poodles and Bolognese are square dogs, and when crossed with the long backed Havanese they will often have back issues. They will also often have teeth problems. Often their permanent teeth will be extremely jammed together, due to the differences in the sizes of the jaws of the Poodles, Bolognese, and Havanese.
Havanese have a much wider jaw, with larger teeth than Bolognese and poodles. Havanese's permanent teeth usually come in much earlier than Poodles and Bolognese. If the offspring get the teeth of the Havanese, and the jaw of either of the other two breeds, the dog may end up with permanent teeth, at about age 4-8 months, that are completely jammed together. This is an issue because teeth that are crammed together lead to additional teeth and gum issues and possible heart failure from gum infections!
The so-called Havacos, Bolocos, Poovanese, Bolohavs, and Havabolos, may end up with a lot of bacteria entering the blood stream through bad gums, which are from crowded teeth. The bacteria frequently infects the heart, causing a very early death, which is totally unnecessary.
It is unconscionable that a breeder would intentionally create such huge risks for the precious little animals in her care.
Designer Dog Breeders create many health risks in the off spring they introduce to the public. Havacos, Poovanese, Bolohavs, and Bolocos are serious mistakes with high risk of back problems and jaw-teeth problems.
The so-called Designer breeder puts her self interest ahead of the heath of the pups she creates.
IT IS CRAZY AND DANGEROUS TO CROSS A LARGE BREED WITH A SMALL BREED!
Small Cockers Still Carry Characteristics To Create Large Cockers
When Cockers Are Bred To Havanese, It Poses A Risk To All Off Spring
Breed Mixes Pose A Risk To Pregnant Females At Puppy Delivery Time & Breed Mixes Pose A Risk To The Survival of Newborns.
Newborns Will Grow Up And Face A Dangerous Risk If Ever Bred, Intentionally or Accidentally.
Think about it: Cocker Spaniels are about twice the size of Havanese.
Think about the cross breed, or mixed breed puppy delivery as a difficult human infant delivery, with little or no medical intervention. Imagine a petite 4'8" woman giving birth to a boy baby. Let's say she is married to a man who is 5' 8", who had a father who was 6'8", who had a father who was 6'2", who had a father who was 5'8". Additionally, imagine that her own father was 5'10". She may have a baby that is much too big for her to deliver.
Oops, that little lady may end up with a "C" section at 8 months gestation. The only problem is that many canine moms die in such situations, and many off spring die as well.
Even when a breeder takes a small Cocker Spaniel and breeds it to a large Havanese both individual dogs will pass on the breed characteristics that typify their breed, not their own exact size.
In other words, a small Cocker Spaniel still carries all of the characteristics to create a large cocker.Likewise, a large Havanese still carries all of the characteristics to create a small Havanese.
So, the coupling of a larger Havanese with a smaller Cocker Spaniel hardly changes the dangerous soup-like mixture.
When a small Cocker Spaniel is bred to a large Havanese the off spring can take the characteristics of the largest Cocker Spaniel coupled with the characteristics of the smallest Havanese.
Such combinations are not at all uncommon. This is particularly difficult as large puppies can be the result of such cross breed breedings, and the delivery of the puppies can nearly kill, or, in fact, kill, the mother dog, when she is in puppy delivery.
The combinations cause problems for the mom while she is pregnant and while she is in puppy delivery. Surviving offspring often end up with numerous life altering problems. We have even seen pups of such breedings that did not have mouths large enough to nurse their mother's milk, because the mother's body was so large and the newborn infant's body was very, very small. In this case, a large male Havanese was bred to a small Cocker Spaniel female. The pups turned out to be the size of the smallest Havanese pups, about one ounce, and the mom's body was just too huge for the pups to nurse. Another issue is that some pups cannot hold on to their mom long enough to nurse even if their mouths are large enough because their bodies are not large enough to stabilize their body between the floor and their mom, so they cannot nurse.
Additionally, all of the cross breed offspring that survive and grow up and are bred can create sizes that are extremely different from their own size.
This means that a female cross breed, Havaco, etc., can have pups that are much, much too large for her to carry and deliver, even if she is bred to a small male. She is capable of producing a very large dog since she is 1/2 large breed and 1/2 small breed. Such animals should never be bred, for this, if for no other reason.
Also the male Havanese that is bred to a larger female Cocker Spaniel can be seriously injured during the breeding process. Breeding dogs that are different sizes can be very dangerous to the dogs that are bred.
GOOD BREEDERS DO NOT CREATE DESIGNER DOGS, CROSSES,
MIXED BREED DOGS
Designer dogs are mutts! They are not predictable in personality or looks. The puppy may be cute but the adult may grow up to look very disproportionate and gangly. Puppy proportions do not even slightly resemble adult proportions. Certain parts of the puppy body will start to grow at disproportionate rates at about 6-9 months of age, and this sometimes makes the little puppy grow into a very different look than the little cross breed. All puppies are cute and endearing, but not all adult dogs are as cute and endearing.
A cross between Yorkshire Terrier and Havanese may create a deadly and very cantankerous mixed breed dog. Likewise, the cross of Westie and Havanese can create a dog that bites everything in sight - I have seen that in action. A combination of Bichon Frise and Havanese can cause severe eye problems, as well as the most severe form of heart murmurs. Yes, I hear of these cross problems all of the time. The list of Cross Breed Problems, or Designer Dog Problems, goes on and on.
Designer Dogs are not hybrids. Hybrids are animals of different species that are bred together producing an animal with hybrid vigor. All breeds of dogs are the same species, dog. That precludes the possibility of hybrid vigor in dog breed crosses!
