Jace in Rolla, MO

Update 6-16-24: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!
Jace is our very first experience with fostering, and he has been delightful and charming. His first birthday is coming up on June 30, 2024.
Jace is a Black and Tan Cavalier who came to Cavalier Rescue USA from a large-scale breeding operation. It was a unique, poignant privilege to see him scamper on the grass under the big sky for what seemed like his first time.
As you might, expect he is still tentative with new people and new situations; however, we have been pleasantly startled by his adaptability and openness! He’s a quick study, learning almost immediately from his foster brothers to potty in the yard with surprisingly few accidents, and to fetch the ball.
When he initially arrived he would collect all the clothing he could reach and build himself a protective nest. His nesting has subsided but he does still love collecting items. He is mischievous but rarely destructive! He loves chew toys of all sorts. One quirk we must mention is that Jace sometimes perceives people and animals on television as potential intruders in the home and barks accordingly.
Jace is completely crate trained. He will stay contentedly overnight in his crate, but relishes joining the whole pack in bed for an uninterrupted night of sleep. We’ve begun leaving him uncrated in the house for up to two hours at a time while away and no mishaps yet!
Jace is soulful and gentle. He has two Cavalier foster siblings, a neighbor pup who visits often and he’s visited in homes with children and cats. He loves playing all over the big fenced yard so a fenced yard is essential. He’s working on leash walking, sit and come. He loves a car ride.
Jace is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm negative and on preventatives for heartworm, fleas, and ticks. He is a healthy little guy.
If you are the right family for Jace, please submit an adoption application (if you haven’t already) and then email Sarah Noebels at cavalierrescuesarah@gmail.com so she knows of your interest.

Javi in Manor, TX

Here is Javi with his new family…


My name is Javi. I am a vibrant and energetic two-year-old Cavalier looking for my forever home. A Good Samaritan found me on a website of a backyard breeder trying to re-home me after likely using me for breeding purposes. I was super duper scared of everything at first, but now I love everything! I love car rides, cuddling at the feet of my parents when they work from home, and I love how they have a backyard where they’re teaching me to play a cool new game called fetch!

About Me

I need plenty of exercise to stay happy and healthy. I’m a superstar on the leash and I’ve been enjoying morning and evening walks.

I crave companionship from my foster parents and their Cavalier. I will be your little shadow! I’m a social butterfly who will happily soak up all the love and affection you can offer, and I love playing and cuddling with my foster Cavalier brother.

After a day filled with activities, I’ll easily settle down for a good night’s rest in my crate next to your bed without a single peep, giving you some peaceful downtime too. I sleep the best when I can see you from my crate so I know I’m safe. 

I am potty trained! I never potty in the house but I don’t really know how to tell my foster parents that I need to go, so they make sure to just take me to the backyard every 3-4 hours, especially within an hour of eating. When they say ‘go potty’ in the backyard, I know exactly what to do!


Since being in foster care, I have been neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. The vet says I’m doing a-ok. I was having pretty bad tummy troubles when I first got to my foster home, and food and water would make me regurgitate. The vet tested me for lots of things including pancreatitis, and pancreatitis came back inconclusive, but the vet says I’m showing no clinical signs of pancreatitis so he isn’t worried. Since being at my foster house, my tummy is almost totally back to normal, I’ve gone many days in a row without throwing up or regurgitating, and my foster mom is almost done weaning me from easily digestible wet food to regular ole kibble!

Ideal Home


  • Already have another dog to keep me company
  • A parent who works from home or is a stay-at-home parent 
  • Someone who can give me a good morning walk each day

I have a huge fear of being alone. It is so scary! But when my foster parents leave me with my foster brother, I’m happy as a clam and I don’t bark or cry. Because of this, my forever home will need to have another dog that I can hang out with. I would fit in perfectly with other young or energetic dogs but might irritate older or lazier dogs. I would thrive in a home where someone works from home, providing me with the companionship and attention I love.

We haven’t had the chance to see how I interact with children, so we’re not sure how I would do with them, but my foster parents don’t think it would be an issue.

Alley in Little Rock, AR

My name is Alley.  I’m a very super sweet, quiet Cavalier girl who loves nothing more than to be cuddled and massaged. When I came into Rescue, I was super scared of everything. I was especially nervous of anything that was over my head. My foster family had to pet me under my chin to show me they really loved me and wanted to take good care of me.

I have a foster sister who came with me and I love her. She made me feel safe when we first came to our foster home and I followed her everywhere. Now I’m more independent and I am not afraid to cuddle and get pets from all 4 of my foster family members. I love to be outside. It’s my favorite thing so I hope my new furever family has a great backyard for me to run and play a few times a day. I’ll really need it since I’m so afraid of the leash. My foster mom tells me I should try the leash, because it would be so much fun to go for walks. I’m just not there yet.

I am completely crate trained. I’ve never had an accident in my kennel since coming into Rescue or even in the house.

I am the epitome of a cuddly, loving Cavalier. I just need someone to love me and let me be right next to them all the time. I would love to sleep in your bed with you. I love soft things to lay on. Blankets, towels, a soft dog bed. All of those things make me happy. One time I walked behind my crate, pulled the towel down off of it, fluffed it up and laid down right on top of it.

I would do best in a home with someone who is home most of the time and loves to be outside as much as I do. Older kids would be best, as quick, unexpected movements tend to make me nervous and jumpy.

Stella in Suffolk, VA

Stella is a sweet little 8-year-old Black & Tan Cavalier lady who found herself in rescue through no fault of her own. She was picked up after answering a local shelter’s call.

Stella is very well behaved and an absolute sweetheart. She would definitely be in the running for the Worlds Best Snuggler award! She loves to be in your lap and cozy under blankets when she can. 

She has had a dental cleaning, been spayed, is microchipped and has no current health issues. Upon intake she had a significant skin issue but it has since cleared up. Her foster mom notes that having a garment on helps keep the itchies at bay. Foster mom suspects the cause is nerves/stress.

Stella does well on a leash and gets along wonderfully with other dogs and children. She loves to eat and will express her excitement when meal time arrives. Stella will be happiest with a family with someone home with her during the day. However, she is able to be free in the home when left alone. 

If you are interested in Stella, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email the Virginia Rescue Coordinator Michelle Ouellette at cavalierrescueusadmv@gmail.com so she knows of your interest.

Percy in Westfield, IN

Meet Percy! A sweet, cuddly, healthy 5-year old Black & Tan Cavalier born 03/20/19. Percy came to Cavalier Rescue USA from a breeder. He was severely matted and sadly shaved down but has a beautiful black, shiny coat. Percy is now neutered, had a dental, is microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations and preventatives and is ready for his lucky forever family.

Percy is such a cuddle bug. His favorite time is snuggling up with his people on the couch. He will happily lay by you for hours and welcomes all belly rubs. He is very food motivated and would do well in formal obedience training. When treats are involved you will have his full attention! Although he’s 5 yrs old many things are new and he is very much a puppy. He likes to explore and put things in his mouth so a variety of chew toys is recommended. He does listen very well and responds to a gentle “no” quickly . He wants to understand and is so eager to please.

He is crate trained but prefers to sleep snuggled up with the resident Cavaliers in their bed. With a consistent schedule, Percy is reliably house trained. He keeps a close eye on his foster mom for security and will follow her everywhere but is slowly gaining confidence with the help of his two Cavalier buddies. Another pup would be important in his new family.

Percy’s playful side is coming out and he loves toys. He’ll prance around tossing his toy in the air and storing them in his crate as his own private collection. He loves to play ball and freely explore outside so a physical fenced yard is a must. Percy loves going on walks, enjoying all the new smells and things to see. He is interested in people, kids and other dogs on his walks but walking nicely on lead is a work in progress. He rides well in the car in a car seat.

Percy has quickly adjusted to the life of a pampered pup. Upon coming into rescue, he would cower when being picked up but is slowly learning that being held and loved is not scary. He’s timid around new people and seems to prefer women although if a male has food he’s right there! Since he is skittish, kids 10 yrs and older would be best in his new home. He has not been tested with cats so that’s an unknown.

Percy’s foster mom says his tail is always wagging and he soaks up all the love he can get. His new family will be lucky to bring this sweet boy into their family.
