Lamby Pie & Lil Red in Olympia, WA

Are you looking for a couple of lovable senior sisters to hang out with and spoil? If so, you have come to the right place! Lamby Pie and Lil Red came into rescue due to changing family dynamics. This sweet, bonded pair are 10 and 11 years old, reportedly sisters, and have been together for a long time.

Since coming into rescue, they both have had dental cleanings and are now enjoying toys. Lamby had 13 teeth removed and does not have many left, so she sometimes has a cute tongue protrusion. She also had removal of a long-standing bilateral cherry eyes which has definitely increased her beauty quotient!

Lil Red had several teeth removed, and she has a heart murmur but exhibits no symptoms and does not require medication. The girls had short haircuts right before they were surrendered and it shouldn’t be too long before they have beautiful Cavalier ears and feathering again.

This loving pair has many differences but are both very enjoyable to have around. Lil Red, the ruby, is a petite 13 lbs. and prances like a deer. Her younger sister Lamby is a well-nourished 25 lbs. and has lost about 4 lbs. while in foster care. You can guess which likes to hang around the kitchen and which one eats a little slower! 

Lil Red enjoys attention from anyone but also enjoys her own napping space, while Lamby can be assertive in her requests for love and all the pets possible. When your arm gives out, she will happily rest beside you. They are typical older Cavaliers in that they sleep a lot, but they also have bursts of energy. Both are well behaved, though Lil Red is either hard of hearing or has selective hearing.

They get along great with their Cavalier foster sister and the neighbor Cavalier. Also, when visiting a neighbor with a cat they hardly reacted at all, which we believe this is a good sign that they would not mind a feline roommate.

They do not bark much unless the neighborhood dogs are gossiping outside or if they get excited. They enjoy walks on the leash and do fairly well, and they also enjoy wandering around the fenced yard to smell all the smells. 

Their house-training is mostly reliable, but they do not give obvious requests to go outside. Their foster family takes the pups outside every 2-3 hours and this helps avoid accidents.

The girls would love a fenced yard so they can get in some leisurely sniffs and sunbathe to their hearts content. We haven’t seen them around kids but think they’d be okay with respectful older children. They are good with dogs of similar size and temperament, and a dog-savvy cat sibling should be fine too. These ladies would do best with someone who is home much of the time.

Lamby Pie and Lil Red are delightful companions and are looking forward to their forever home.
