Iljimae and Erza in Rockville, MD


Here are the pups with their new mom…

Hi everyone! Where my sister and I have unusual names we are otherwise classic Cavaliers. My name is Iljimae (pronounced ill-jah-may) and my sister is Erza (pronounced air-zuh). I am 7 and a tricolor and she is 6 and a Ruby. We have been together for 3 years and we get along great!

We are both house trained and walk well on leashes. We enjoy hanging out with other Cavaliers and humans too (especially the ones with the treats). We come when called by our name and sit/stay well. We like to sleep together in our big dog bed, that my foster mom says will come with us. We probably wouldn’t be good bed partners with humans as Erza snores.

We have a bit of a weight problem that will take a little diet and exercise to get over. I weigh 32.5 lbs and Erza weighs 29.5 lbs. Our foster mom has already started this process and it’s not so bad so far. We both have been ‘fixed’ and are up to date with those pesky shots. We have long nails which will need to be walked back to a regular length (trim weekly until corrected) and might need a dental sometime in the future.

We would love our forever home to have a few good grown people and maybe a smaller person or 2, and more pups is always better, although we are happy to take the King and Queen role.
