River in Philadelphia, PA

Meet River, a 7.5 pound handsome five month old Black and Tan boy. River was released to rescue due to having an open fontanelle and an overbite. His fontanelle has closed quite a bit and should not cause any long term problems, however, it is pronounced and may require some permanent teeth to be pulled once he is mature.

Prior to coming into rescue, River had little social interaction with humans. He has warmed up to his foster family but can be shy with new people and places. Once he is comfortable in an environment, River becomes the typical love sponge. He gets along with all his housemates and loves to play.

River is currently fostered with several older Cavaliers. He plays well with all and has an abundance of energy. Sudden movements and loud noises can still startle him so a home with no children or calm children is preferred. River is very social so a house with another playful dog would be a requirement.

River loves to run around and play. He has already gathered a wide assortment of toys that he plays with in constantly. One of his favorite toys is a very long elephant that he drags all around the house. He is used to running in a securely fenced yard and loves to follow his foster mom all around the yard, so we are looking for a family with a fenced yard.

Due to his age, he has not yet been neutered, so his new family will need to make ensure he is neutered when he is at the proper age.   While in foster care, he has been learning to go potty outside like a new puppy, but this will have to be reinforced in your own home.

Thank you for taking the time to consider River!  He has been an absolute joy to his foster family and will make a lucky family very happy!

If you live within a 2-3 hour drive of Philadelphia/Blue Bell, PA and would like to be considered for River’s new home, please complete the online application and then email the rescue coordinator Melissa MacMullin at cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com so she knows to consider your application.

Belle in Nashville, TN

Here is Belle with her new family…

This cutie’s name is Belle. She’s an incredibly sweet beautiful little black and tan girl that was pulled out of a situation with little to no human contact. We believe that in coming to rescue, this is her first experience out of the kennel. Because of her life before she was rescued, she’s very timid and shy with people, and needs to find a patient and understanding home that will give her the time and love that she needs to come out of her shell! Belle will go and hide whenever possible, so her fosters have been working diligently on getting her to trust the humans. You can tell that she wants to be loved, she will make random runs at you for love, but runs back away at the last minute. Belle is a flight risk because she is always on high alert for any sudden movement. A fenced yard would be necessary, and she still doesn’t know how to walk on leash.

While Belle’s incredibly timid around humans, she adores other dogs, and would be happiest with some furry brothers or sisters around the house to show her how to be a treasured pup! She gets along with both male and female dogs in her foster home, and loves to snuggle with all of them. 

When she and her foster siblings are let outside together she blossoms into an excited and happy pup! She loves to get to trot around and play with them, and tries to follow the other dogs around the house as much as she can. She has just recently started to actually play with the others. This has helped her slowly begin to overcome her fear of the humans in the house as well, as she can see these other pups that love and seek attention from the people of the house. She is very treat motivated, and will do her happy dance with a few spins, come to you for a treat then dart away. Just recently she has started letting us rub her chin and touch her. She is learning.

Since coming to live with her foster family, Belle has gotten up to date on all her shots, has been spayed, had a dental and microchipped! She’s healthy as can be.  

Belle is slowly getting more comfortable around her foster mom she loves her foster dad more, and even moves to snuggle with him more and more often! So with time, patience, love, and a bit of help from some furry friends, Belle will be able to gain the confidence to become a sweet and loving companion.  Belle needs a home where her new parents will push her to be comfortable around humans but also learn at her own pace, and have other pups so she can learn how to be a treasured family member.  

If you believe that you would be the perfect home for Belle, and live within a reasonable driving distance, please make sure you have an application submitted on our website, and email Sandy Medd at cavalierrescueusa.tn.al@gmail.com telling us a little about you and where you are located.

Dandy in Nashville, TN

Here is the pup with her new family…

Dandy is a happy, funny little pup! She loves to be outside or up on the couch. The couch is her favorite place to be and she wants you there right by her side. If you are not, she will come hunt you down! Then she will run back to the couch and hope you follow.

If she is not sure where you are, she will pop her head up over the top of the couch like a little merekat scanning the horizon! She does not like to be alone for very long and will bark to alert you of this.

Dandy is about 2 years old and weighs 15 lbs. She is a black and tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She had been a breeding dog and has had puppies previously. She would do well with another easy going, well-behaved dog to teach her how to be more confident. She would also benefit from positive reinforced training.

Dandy rides well in a car and walks very nicely on a leash. Too much activity can be overwhelming to her. It would be best if she found a quiet home with someone home most of the day. She is a sweet girl but is just learning to feel comfortable exploring beyond the couch.

She does love to play outside and sniff all the spring blooming flowers. She needs a secure fenced in yard to be able to play safely and enjoy the freedom of playtime outside. She is not familiar with toys and will need patience to learn how to play.

If you think your family would be a good match for Dandy, please make sure you have an updated application on file and email Liz Nigh at lizcavalierusa@gmail.com. You can read about our adoption process at the following links: Process & FAQ
