Georgie in Carlsbad, CA
Here is Georgie with her new family…
Georgie is an adorable 7 year-old, 17 lb. female tricolor Cavalier, born 9/14/14. Her former family did not have enough time in their busy household with two special needs children and reached out to CRUSA to find her a family she deserves.
Good things come in small packages and Georgie’s here to prove it. Since coming into rescue, she is now up to date on her vaccines and microchipped. Best of all, the vet said Georgie is heart clear. While in foster care, Georgie has started to trim down and her new family must be committed to help her lose 2 – 3 lbs. to be at an ideal, healthy weight for her frame. That shouldn’t be a problem because this bundle of love thrives on daily activity. Georgie will let you know when it’s time to play fetch as it’s her new favorite past time! Long walks are a bonus and consistent leash training and positive reinforcement will go a long way in helping her continue to blossom and feel confident.
Georgie’s foster parents say she is the sweetest girl ever and is ready to find her forever home! Here are a few other things they would like you to know:
Georgie is an absolute gem with a heart of gold. She is the silliest typical Velcro Cavalier you’ve ever met. She loves to be with her people and asks for attention with little paw taps and barks. Georgie would do best in a home where she is with someone most of the time as she loves being surrounded by her pack.
Georgie loves to dart about and explore new surroundings so her new family must be diligent about keeping her away from any open doors. As much as Georgie would like to accompany you on errands, at present she is displaying some anxiety when riding in a car, wriggling about and panting on the short car rides she has been on. Continued exposure to traveling brief distances may ease this and she will always need to be secured to a seatbelt or car harness to keep her safe.
Georgie is fully house trained and peacefully sleeps through the night preferring a comfortable couch rather than a dog bed. Pet stairs or a ramp help her maneuver safely. Georgie loves to be on the move and will refrain from jumping on furniture when she feels her hind legs need a rest. We’re guessing she may not be used to navigating stairs. A daily joint supplement is suggested as some arthritis may be setting in at her age.
Introducing Georgie to puzzle toys to keep her mentally stimulated will help create a harmonious bond with her new family. Georgie is initially skittish around other dogs but has adjusted to her larger male Cavalier foster sibling. She was raised around young children but has not been introduced to any new little friends since being in foster care. Georgie is a sweetheart and would be the perfect addition to a family with lots of time, love and patience.
