Single female Blenheim clown faced Cavalier King Charles Spaniel born 2/24/23 seeks active new family for adventures and snuggles! Likes: playing, making new friends (and everyone is a friend!), her big foster sister (OMG she’s so cool! Gotta copy everything she does!), cheese, and chasing her bandana on the end of a horse lunge whip! Dislikes: cats who refuse to play with her, not being allowed to eat cat food, and baths.
Weighing in at 9.5 lbs. and growing like a weed, Penny is an active, happy, and intelligent puppy seeking a new home through no fault of her own. Her family realized that they couldn’t provide her with the attention she needed while going through some changes in their lives and reached out to us for help.
Penny has quickly learned her name and basic commands, and is making excellent progress on potty training (she does well on a schedule with rare accidents), and is also learning to walk on a leash. She has been a joy to have in her foster home, and has never met a stranger who she didn’t charm in less than 5 seconds. She is a confident, energetic, and easy to train little gal (sincerely loves cheese and will happily work for it), and needs a family that is willing to be active with her, get her into puppy obedience classes, and help her on her continued path to being an excellent canine citizen.
This little gal would shine in dog sports or obedience, make an amazing running buddy, and we suspect that her natural ability in coursing after the lunge whip would make her a pro in Fast CAT when she’s all grown up. Very friendly and happy, Penny does need a daily energy outlet. When she is ready to slow down from her usual blur of activity, she is an excellent snuggler who curls right into the spot on her chosen person’s lap for a solid snooze. She loves a good belly rub and easily settles for the evening with a chew toy. She is amazing in a crate.
She interacts mostly appropriately with the cats at the foster home, but does have to be distracted from harassing the more timid of the cats to play with her on occasion. She has been exposed to horses and ignored them after her initial surprise. She is healthy and up to date on her medical care. We will accept active families with school-aged children who have experience with dogs.
