Ella in Flower Mound, TX

Meet sweet Ella. She is a beautiful black and tan girl who is approximately 6-months-old. Her grace and warm, friendly nature is inexplicable given her rocky start. Not much is known about her early life, but even from a corner cage in a windowless space at the shelter, her congenial Cavalier spirit lit up the room. Her small tail wiggled with excitement as we approached, and she eagerly squeezed her cute nose through the bars to gently say hello. Ella’s forgiving, resilient, and cheerful disposition is deeply inspiring, and we hope she is given the opportunity to love and be loved by the wonderful forever family she deserves.

Ella has many physical Cavalier traits but she also has a docked tail and is larger than most Cavaliers. We are unsure of her exact mix. She is 26lbs now and the vet thinks she will more than likely be full grown somewhere in the 30-40lb range. 

As far as housetraining, Ella has quickly learned to ring the bell hanging on the door to let us know she needs to go outside. Incredibly, this little girl had wonderful manners right from the start. Due to her young age, Ella will of course need her family to continue to provide structure so she can continue to do her best. As far as taking trips, this sweet girl has been a top-notch traveler in the car and loves to be on-the-go with you. A social butterfly, she fits right in with the pack, dogs and children alike. She would do best in a home with at least one other friendly dog to play and explore with as well as easy access to a fenced yard, where she can continue her housetraining easily. Ella is great on a leash; it’s as if she trained herself! Since Ella adapts to most everything quickly, she also sleeps through the night in her crate. Ella has a deep desire to please her people and is such a joy to be around. 

Ella has been spayed while in rescue and is all up to date on her core vaccines and preventatives. One of her eyes was found to be underdeveloped, a painless condition known as anophthalmia. To prevent potentially irritating debris accumulation and because that eye did not provide vision for her, the rescue’s veterinarian performed a simple surgical procedure to close the eyelid permanently. Thankfully, Ella is none the wiser! She’s a happy, healthy puppy with a zest for life and adventure, so would be a great match for an active family. 

If you think you will be able to provide all of the love and care Ella deserves, please complete our application if you haven’t already and then email Shelby at shelbynfields@gmail.com.

Daisy in Nashville, TN

Update 9-29-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Daisy is a sweet, black and tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who was given to Cavalier Rescue USA as the breeder was downsizing. Daisy was born November 21, 2020 and is almost three-years-old. She’s been a good mommy and now is ready to retire as a family pet. Daisy is such a loving girl and deserves a life of luxury and being spoiled. Daisy loves plush, cushy pillows and cozy blankets. She also loves a soft shoulder to lay on and will inch as close as she can to be near you. Then, she will wrap her neck around yours and snuggle in for a nice, long rest. If she could crawl up inside of you, she would. She definitely is a love bug and worthy of the smuggle award.

Since coming into rescue, Daisy has been given her shots, tested heartworm negative, and was given a clean bill of health by the vet. She also was spayed and had her teeth cleaned. She has had a seamless recovery from her surgery and is fast on the road to recovery. Although her fur is currently cut close, she will have a lovely coat when it’s all grown out. She is a beautiful girl inside and out.

Daisy has a quiet, timid personality and will need a calm home as she makes the transition to a pet. Therefore, a home with either older, respectful children or no children is required. Daisy will also need to have a securely fenced in yard. She is not used to a leash and that will take time and patience. She does love to go on walks in a doggie stroller which is good for her. She enjoys sitting up an watching all the new sites and sounds. It is a good transition for her as she gets used to steady movement and the world around her.

Daisy is not potty trained and will need supervision and guidance to help her with this. Daisy does wonderfully with other dogs and they are helpful to her. She will follow their lead and she will gladly sit for treats along with the other dogs. Daisy knows how to use doggie stairs to get up to couches and beds. She tends to pick those for her safe spot and feels most as ease there. It would be best for her to have access to these so she can move around as she sees fit. Daisy rides very nicely in a car and will stay in her car seat well.

If you believe your family is a good fit for Daisy, please fill out an application to adopt if you have not done so already and then email Liz Nigh at Lizcavalierusa@gmail.com to let her know of your interest.

Lady in Oklahoma City, OK

Lady is a 4 ½ -year-old Black and Tan Cavalier. She came to rescue through a good Samaritan who got her from a large breeding facility.  She lived in a crate most of her life.  Despite this, she is remarkably a lover girl! She is happiest when she is on your lap or near you. She is not a fan of her crate, as she wants her people to be in her sight or she wants to sit on a lap.

Lady has had a good check up from a veterinarian and is healthy and has good structure and heart health. She did have ear infections and one ear drum that had burst. She is being treated and will require further follow-up. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. She had a dental and is microchipped.

Lady is understandably adjusting to home life. She wants to be loved and cared for and loves her people. She is definitely a Velcro dog. She is working on house training. She requires that you go outside with her as she seems to fear that she will be left alone outside. She will require patience and consistency to learn trust and house training.

The best home for Lady is one without other dogs. She is protective of her space and doesn’t like other dogs to intrude. She hasn’t been around cats or children but is just fine with chickens! She is not accustomed to a leash, so will require training.

Lady would love to be with a retired family or a someone who  spends a lot of their time at home. She requires a securely fenced backyard. Lady insists on being on the furniture in a place she deems safe where she can see you. If you want true companionship and a dog that loves you so much she always wants you near, Lady is your dream dog! You will never be alone as she follows you everywhere.

If you are interested in Lady joining your family, please complete our online application, and then send a follow up email to Janis at okstauffer@aol.com so she knows of your interest!

Angie in Buffalo Grove, IL

Meet Angie, a 6-year-old Black and Tan Cavalier! Angie was released from a large commercial breeding facility to Cavalier Rescue USA. Angie arrived at her foster home terrified of everything and everyone, and appeared to have never walked on grass and possibly the ground. To say that she has made progress is an understatement. Every day Angie is making progress, and is now an official cuddle bug.

Since coming to Cavalier Rescue USA, Angie has been spayed and has had much needed dental work, in which she lost a significant number of teeth. The teeth loss has had no impact on her ability to eat dry kibble. Angie is micro-chipped, up to date on vaccines, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives.

In regards to health, Angie has a grade 4 heart murmur and has been assessed via imaging by a cardiologist. The cardiologist has reason to believe that Angie’s heart condition may have been caused by the food she was eating, and may show signs of improvement with medication and by eating a kibble diet that includes grain in the recipe. Angie currently takes one heart medication (Pimobendan) twice per day. Angie will require her heart medication as well as 1-2 trips to the cardiologist yearly.

Angie is a very cautious, hard of hearing, and a sweetie pie who startles easily. She likes to potty in a fenced in yard, as she has shown no interest in walking on a leash. Angie will thrive in a home that is very slow placed and if there are children in the home, they would be gentle ones age 8 or older. A fenced in yard is a must!

Angie spends her days cuddled up next to her foster mom on the couch, and she likes having a kennel available to retreat to when the couch is no longer available for her. Her personality is starting to come out, with an example being her nightly dinnertime zoomies. 

It may take a few weeks for her to warm up to you, but once she does, you are her person. If you are interested in Angie and can provide the forever home she needs, please complete the online application and then email Meg Hutson Eisenmenger at cavalierrescuemeg@gmail.com and let her know you are interested in Angie.
