Oakley in Fletcher, NC

Here is the pup with his new family…
Oakley is a healthy 2 1/2- year-old neutered Black & Tan male born 8/25/2021 that was released to rescue from his loving family when lifestyle changes made it difficult to keep him, knowing it was the best thing for Oakley who needed more attention and care than they were able to provide. On the petite side at just 15 lbs., Oakley is a typical Cavalier who is happy, playful, outgoing, sweet and gentle.  His happy places are sitting in your lap, sleeping on the big bed, and running around in a fenced yard with his canine foster siblings.
Oakley adapted quickly to life in his foster home with 2 other Cavaliers and a cat. He is a playful dog that loves his toys and walks around with plush toys in his mouth. He’d love for you to play fetch with him, hold him or just keep your hand on his head! Like most Cavaliers, he just loves to be around his people, so Oakley will do best in a home where someone is at home with him most of the time.  
With all the changes in Oakley’s life, he has regressed a little on his potty training. He will usually sit quietly at the door when he needs to go out, and occasionally will quietly scratch at the door, but he has had a few accidents while in foster care. He will need some continued help and attention to become proficient at potty training.
Oakley is good with children, though when excited he does jump (on the back of your legs), and will need continued training to stop this behavior. For this reason, any children in his new home will need to have had experience living with a dog in the home. A fenced yard is required, but he also loves to go on long leash walks and behaves very well on a leash.  He’d love to go to an active family that will take him on walks and even hiking!
Oakley enjoys the company of the other dogs in his home, but hasn’t tried to initiate play with them yet. He has tried to play with the cat though!  He would do well in a home with another young, like-sized canine companion, but may also do okay as an only dog if his new family was very active and could offer him opportunities to socialize with other pups on occasion.
