Cedar in York, PA

Meet Cedar, a sweet but shy 8-year-old ruby male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is looking for his forever home. He spent his life as a breeding dog on a commercial farm.

Cedar is timid, but loving. He wants to give you love-licks, cuddles on the bed or couch, and to be able to run free in the yard while barking at passersby. He loves being petted and given ear rubs. Cedar is friendly and eager to love and be loved.

While in foster care he saw a cardiologist, was neutered and had a dental cleaning. He is missing about 19 teeth and has mild hearing loss. Cedar is on a few medications due to MDVD and arrhythmia.

Cedar, however, has a healthy appetite and takes his medicine very well. He is used to wearing a snood while eating to keep his ears clean. He loves chewing on bully-sticks (the longer the stick the better) and loves snacking on treats like blueberries, and pumpkin.

Cedar is housebroken if taken outside regularly. He does well in his crate for a few hours, but is used to being home with someone all day. He sleeps in his crate in his foster parent’s bedroom at night, but would (of course) love to be allowed on the bed instead. He can easily be spooked and run off, but he loves to run free in a secure fenced-in yard. Cedar does well on car rides and walks on a leash.

Cedar has enjoyed paling around and snuggling with the foster family’s 2-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and their two cats. He does fine around children until they begin to run or get loud, then he wants to protest to their presence. It is recommended that he be in a calm, quiet home without young children. Other dogs or cats would be fine.
