Daisy in Creswell, OR

Here is Daisy with her new family…

Meet Daisy! A beautiful 5-year-old, silky soft, Black-and-Tan girl who is eager to meet her forever family. Daisy came into rescue because her family had some life changes and wanted her to live her best life.

Daisy previously lived with another Cavalier and has thrived in her foster home with other dogs and cats. Once she adjusted to her foster home, Daisy began to initiate play with her foster siblings. She especially enjoys playing tug-of-war! Daisy greets all of her two and four-legged foster family members with her happy Cavalier tail wag.

Daisy enjoys keeping an eye on her foster mom throughout the day, following along as she does chores and laying quietly by her feet while she works at her computer. In the evening, she prefers her foster dad’s lap for snuggles and belly rubs and wants to show her gratitude by giving kisses. If her foster family leaves during the day, she rests quietly in her crate and greets them with little “woo-woo” sounds of happiness upon their return.

Daisy would love to snuggle up to you all day and all night long. While in foster care, she sleeps quietly through the night in her crate, the only sound being her soft snoring and the thump of her tail when her foster parents get up in the morning.

Daisy is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and had a much-needed dental cleaning in foster care. She weighed 24 pounds at her initial vet checkup, which may contribute to her snoring and “reverse sneeze” when she is excited. Her ideal weight is somewhere between 18-20 pounds, so she will need to continue her strict dog food-only diet and would greatly benefit from regular short walks. Other than flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, Daisy does not require any medications.

Daisy is house trained and enjoys frequent trips outdoors to ensure success. She even learned how to use the doggy door at her foster-grandma’s house! Daisy happily comes when called and walks well on a leash. She is working on sit and stay commands. Her foster mom thinks Daisy would do best in a home with a fenced yard, where someone is home most of the day.

Toby in Ramsey, MN

Update 2-25-23: We think we have identified a great family for Toby so aren’t taking more applications for now. Thank you!

Hello my name is Toby and my eyes say it all :). I love to greet all humans and animals with a waggy tail. I was given to Cavalier Rescue USA when my humans had a baby with health issues who needed their full attention. I am a year and a half old.

My foster mom says I am very smart, I learned to sit in one day (although I do prefer to jump) and I walk well on a leash. I know I need to work on my excitement and not jump on people, but I am so cute and people do love my kisses. I just need some practice being told when it is okay to kiss people and when I need to be patient. My foster mom is surprised at how quickly I pick up on everything with just a little coaching and reminder from her.

I am house trained and sleep through the night with my foster mom and her dog. I love when my foster mom sits on the couch and snuggles with me in the morning, but while she works, I am happy just laying on a blanket in her office.

I love to go for walks and to snuggle. My foster mom says I have a gentle, friendly personality and that I love to make my human happy.

If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out the online adoption application if you haven’t already and then contact Diane Parrish at cavalierrescueusa.mn.wi@gmail.com. Thank you!

Delilah in Warren, OH

Here is the pup with her new dad…

Delilah is a one year old Black and Tan Cavalier born 04/06/2021. She came into rescue through no fault of her own. Her prior home included a larger dog with whom she did not mesh well, and there was a fear of injury if she were to remain in the home. She adapted very quickly to her foster home as she is a happy, fun-loving dog and immediately began playing with the new toys she found in her foster home as well as trying to engage in play with her foster sisters. She loves attention and attempts to push her foster sisters off of foster mom’s lap so that she can take their place.

Delilah is very social and quite active, although she settles easily after roughhouse play with her toys or a game of fetch with her human. She is eager to please and eager to engage in play with her foster mom and equally eager to settle in foster mom’s lap at the end of the day. She enjoys attention and will play on her own at times, tossing her toys into the air and fetching them. Her preferred resting place is on her human’s lap.

Delilah has been very friendly with guests in her foster home, coming up to them, waiting to be petted and admired. She has not been tested around cats. She has been around older children and loves playing with them. She has become a great car rider, always eager to ride with her foster family. She cries for a few seconds if foster mom leaves the house, but does well after those initial cries, with no separation anxiety. She has done very well with housebreaking, going outside with her foster sisters. She has had a few accidents along the way but does well when let out every 3 to 4 hours during the day. Delilah rarely barks. She loves her Nylabone, playing fetch with her tennis ball and playing with stuffed toys.

Delilah is up to date on all vaccines and is spayed. She has learned the “come” and “sit” commands as well as the “leave it” command.

If you are interested in welcoming Delilah into your home, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email Sherry Morgan at morgans817@sbcglobal.net to express your interest.

Leopold in Suffolk, VA

Here is Leopold with his new family…

Leopold is approximately 3 years old and unbelievably was found as a stray with no tags or chip. He has been neutered, chipped and found to be healthy. He is at a good weight of 21 pounds and is larger in stature for a Cavalier.

It is quite clear what a handsome young man he is. His foster mom says he is without a doubt the most loving and affectionate Cavalier she has ever seen! Leo loves playing with his foster sister who is about the same age and is slowly learning how fun toys can be. He is completely in heaven ON your lap and often is a hugger. He does well sleeping in the bed and snuggling with his foster family.

That being said this little guy does have some significant separation anxiety. If left to his own devices while alone, his level of mischievousness is noteworthy. His forever family must be willing to commit to professional training classes and for his safety, crating when he is left alone. He will do best with as little alone time as possible.

Although he gets along wonderfully with his foster Cavalier brother and sister, he is not the most comfortable around larger dogs. Because of his need of training we recommend only older children in the home. He walks well on a leash and loves being active. Leopold requires a secure fenced yard as he can be an escape artist if given the chance.

This young man will surely be a wonderful addition to one lucky family.

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