Suri in Loma Linda, CA

Mister Suri is as sweet as apple pie, comforting as pumpkin spice and everything nice. Meet Suri, the sunniest and most adorable 10 year-old male Ruby Cavalier ever to grace this earth. This enchanting senior is ready to find a family to love and spoil him while he fills a home with his warm autumn glow during his golden years. 

Although we don’t know much about Suri’s early years, his owner was a breeder that passed away and a family member gave Suri to Cavalier Rescue USA to ensure he got the care he needed. Once with rescue, Suri had a complete dental and lost a few teeth but never stopped smiling. He is microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. Suri does have limited mobility due to hip dysplasia and takes a daily joint supplement along with prescription Gabapentin twice a day to ease any discomfort. It is important for him to have short, frequent walks to help maintain muscle mass. He never complains and even with an occasional stumble, Suri rights himself and continues onward. A barely audible heart murmur was detected, but given his age, that is not unexpected and no medication is needed at this time.  

At the mere mention of food, Suri goes into overdrive. He loves to eat and his new family must be mindful that he doesn’t put on weight. He is currently at an ideal 20 lbs. so healthy low calorie treats and measured portions will help with all aspects of his health moving forward. Potty training is a work in progress. When taken out regularly, he has success and will often stand by the door to let you know he needs to go out. However, without careful oversight, Suri does have occasional accidents.

In typical Cavalier fashion, Velcro Suri loves to snuggle. Everywhere you are, he is right there. No lap is left unattended for long and he will let you know in no uncertain terms that continued petting is required. When Suri flashes his deep soulful eyes, you immediately fall under his spell. He sleeps soundly at night in his playpen area and always welcomes big bed cuddles upon waking. His low gentle snores only add to his charm.

Suri is an avid errand co-pilot, enjoying car rides and outings. A stroller is an ideal means of transportation for this cutie. It affords him the opportunity to take a break from walking while still enjoying fresh air, sunshine and chatting with neighbors and new friends. Suri currently shares his foster home with two canine siblings and two cats. He shows interest in the cats but never chases them. He gets along with other dogs and would welcome a like-minded, easy-going companion as long as they don’t interfere with him during meal time. ☺ Suri could also thrive being an only pet, becoming the center of your world while appreciating your undivided attention.

An ideal new family for Suri would be where someone is home most of the day and has the time and patience to devote to this deserving senior gent.
