Cora in Blue Bell, PA

Meet Cora, a beautiful 6-year-old ruby sweetheart that would love to join your home! Cora previously lived on a farm and was used for breeding with very little social interaction. She has made great strides, and loves the home life with a warm bed and human and canine companions. She has started to snuggle with her foster family.

This friendly dog weighing in at ten pounds has tons of love to give to that special family. It did not take her long to adjust to her new life in a warm house with four other Cavaliers. Cora can be shy with people, but warms up fast with a little bit of love. She really enjoys her dog companions, but is independent so she could be an only dog with a lot of human attention. At mealtime Cora tends to be shy and will let others eat her food, so she should be monitored while she eats or be separated. Cora’s coat was thin, but now it is filling in and is very pretty.

When Cora first arrived in rescue she had severe tartar build up and an enlarged heart. She had a full cardiac evaluation was was found to have a grade 4 murmur and an irregular heart rhythm. Shortly after coming into rescue she went into heat and developed pyometra and had emergency surgery which saved her life. During her spay surgery she had a mammary mass removed which was biopsied and found to be non-cancerous. Unfortunately, due to her heart condition the vets do not recommend that Cora undergo anesthesia to take care of her dental issues. Her mouth should be monitored for signs of infection, and she may need antibiotics if problems arise. Cora is currently taking medications twice a day: Salix, Spironolactone, Benazepril and Pimobendan. Cora is currently at an ideal weight.

From day one Cora has been potty trained, but this will have to be reinforced in your own home.

The following qualities would make a great home for Cora: Tons of attention from a very special family. A calm household is preferred, as Cora is scared by loud noises and fast-moving things. A home with a secure fenced-in yard is also very much preferred, as she will go out often when she needs to go to the bathroom.

Thank you for taking the time to consider Cora! She has been an absolute joy to her foster family, and will make a lucky family very happy!
