Lucky in Charlottsville, VA

Adoption Pending!

This precious boy is named Lucky, and he is eager to find a new best friend. Lucky is a handsome, Tri-Color, four year old male. Lucky came to Cavalier rescue from an owner surrender, but we are the "lucky" ones because this guy has been such a sweetheart to foster.

Lucky is neutered, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped and in good health. The veterinarian said he has no current heart murmur or arrhythmias. He could benefit from a dental cleaning down the road. Historically, he tested positive for Lyme disease, but was appropriately treated and started on a vaccine protocol and shows no evidence at this time of Lyme disease symptoms.

Lucky knows basic commands and is a quick learner. He is housebroken and reliable when taken out on a regular schedule. Lucky is happy hanging out on the couch with you or going for a jog. He hasn't quite mastered proper leash etiquette yet, so he will need some additional training in that area. He may be four years old, but loves playing with toys like a puppy. Lucky gets really excited when playing with other dogs, sometimes so excited he can't help but bark with exuberance.

Lucky loves attention and in particular ear scratches and belly rubs. In such a short amount of time, Lucky has really blossomed with us. He seeks approval and aims to please.
