Maisie in San Diego, CA

Did you say snuggle on the couch? Maisie can assist! Meet Blenheim girl Maisie, she’s approximately 10-years-old and just a few weeks ago was a stray pup. Her luck changed when a good Samaritan found her and contacted CR-USA after taking steps to find an owner. She now has a wonderful foster home with the best couch ever! She also has a young Cavalier foster brother to spend her days with and a kitty, who she respects.

Maisie’s foster mom got busy nursing her back to better health. She is now up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped. Maisie saw the cardiologist and was cleared to have a much needed anesthetic dental procedure. Although she lost over 20 teeth she still eats with gusto. She takes daily medicine for her heart, eye drops twice a day, and a joint supplement. Even though Maisie has some arthritis, she can jump on the couch, but may like to have doggie steps or a ramp.

Did we mention how much Maisie loves the couch? She doesn’t choose to snooze on the dog beds or in the crates that are available, but spends most days napping on the couch, and even sleeps there at night. Maisie will roll over and ask for belly rubs if you sit next to her.

Maisie is not a big fan of the outdoors, so foster mom sometimes coaxes her there with treats. They do go on short walks and Maisie is shy but curious about greeting new people in the neighborhood but she is sweet and always has a wagging tail. She is okay with meeting small, gentle dogs but larger ones concern her. She is very reliable with her housetraining, doing all her business quickly so she can get back inside – to her couch of course.

Maisie’s hearing is not good so she doesn’t realize how loud she is and can be quite talkative. The variety of sounds she entertains with are chirps, groans and wails. She will even dance and bark when hungry – so that is often! Her hair was clipped short before coming to rescue but is now growing in nicely. She has an elegant long neck, with a lean body and is at an ideal weight of 24 lbs. Car ride? No problem! She is eager to accompany you and doze off while out and about; the backseat is almost like the couch, isn’t it?

Maisie would love to live her retirement years with a family who can provide a comfy couch, yummy food, daily medications for her aging needs, and regular twice-yearly cardiologist checkups. Maisie promises to reward you with continuous companionship, a sweet smile and a constant wagging tail. If you are that special family that can be there for the rest of her days, please complete the online application if you have not yet done so and email Nanci Gordon at  to let her know of your interest in Maisie.

Winston in Waco, Texas

Update 5-18-22: We’ve received several good applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Meet Winston, an energetic, 18-month-old, Blenheim boy, with a heart of gold. Winston is the sweetest guy you’ll ever meet, who loves to go on walks, play with his people, cuddle, and catch his treats in the air. He is well house-trained and sleeps quietly in his crate in the same room with his three foster siblings. He gets along well with all of them, Winston has never met a stranger and loves everyone he meets. He has not been introduced to cats.

Winston has been vetted and found to be in excellent health. He is chipped, updated on all his shots, and is taking now taking heart worm meds. He is a bit overweight at around 30 lbs and has been put on a healthy diet to reach and maintain his healthy weight of 25lbs..Winston does pant and snores from a possible elongated soft palate. Weight-loss and keeping him at his health weight is a must and should help this considerably. He may need to be seen by a specialist if the panting and snoring doesn’t improve with weight loss. Like all Cavaliers, his weight should be monitored. Winston has seasonal allergies and takes 15 mg of Zyrtec each morning.

Winston is all puppy and needs to be monitored when opening doors. He is fast and will try to bolt to explore the neighborhood without any concern of traffic. Like most puppies he loves to steal paper towels and tissues and will rip them up and even eat them. He also loves to take socks and underwear to play keep-away, and he is very good at that game. These things are all avoidable with owners who are both aware and vigilant. Winston knows some commands like sit, off and look. He does well during grooming/baths, and he doesn’t mind having his nails trimmed. You may get a little wet, however, so have a towel handy.

Winston would make a wonderful companion with a family of active adults, children over 11 or other dogs that are compatible to his size. He would also love a family that will take him with them when they go places. He will do better if someone is home most of the time; but can stay home for a few hours without supervision in a safe environment. He does need to be with his people when they’re home and would be sad to be separated. Winston bonds easily with kind people, and he is easily trained with positive reinforcement. He is a quick learner when training is fun and productive. He is anxious to please and will respond to a kind but firm voice.

If you think your family is a perfect match for this wonderful fun loving boy, please fill out an application at and send an email to Diane Theofanis at to express you interest.

Star in Columbus, OH

Please meet Star! Her spirit shines bright because of the many years her daddy showered the best of love upon her. She thought they would be together forever, but he had to say goodbye recently. He told her not to worry, but it’s really worrisome for a daddy’s girl not to have her daddy. So, maybe you can help Star find a new daddy or a new momma and maybe a furry brother or sister!

Star wants you to know a few things about her in her own voice!

My foster mom tells everyone that I am a doll baby, super sweet, loving, and gentle. She says I have an old soul. An old soul is a good thing which is great because I have no idea where to look for a new one!

Eating is one of my favorite things to do. I eat my meal one kibble at a time, and then I eat my blueberries one at a time, and then I drink my water. My foster mom loves to watch me eat because I am so lady-like with wonderful table manners. I don’t even splash my water around like my foster brothers; they are messy but not me. I’m trying to lose a few more ounces so both my kibble and my blueberries are measured to make sure not even one extra calorie sneaks into my meals. Also, I’ve been introduced to frozen green beans as a snack and can have as many as I want whenever I want!

Medically, I am a 10-year-old Cavalier with heart disease common for my age. My cardiac medications will need to continue throughout my remaining years. My new family will need to take me to my cardiologist for my annual checkup and help me maintain my weight at a heart-healthy level. My vaccines are all up-to-date, I am spayed, microchipped, and love going outside for my comfort breaks even in a little drizzle!

I do take a diuretic for my heart condition. My new family will need to be patient and take me outside frequently during the day to pee. My foster mom gifted me some pretty flowered panties to wear at nighttime or if she needs to run an errand but cannot take me along. I love these not only because I look fabulous wearing them, but I don’t have any worries while asleep. Oh yes, they are totally washable!

My favorite activities are snuggling, exploring my yard, riding in the car, performing my Cavalier stretches, watching people, and napping at my leisure. You might say I am sedate but not lazy, and reflective but not boring. I am not a barker, pushy, or rude. My kisses are free and generous just for you!

Star would love to be in a single-story home with her parent(s) around most of the time. She can go up a few  steps, but many would be challenging for her. She would be best with easy access to a secure yard to explore and for potty duties. Star has been accustomed to being the only furry child since puppyhood but has blended well with her Cavalier foster siblings.

If you have ever wished upon a star for a precious Cavalier to love, our Star may be your wish come true. Please complete our Online Application and then email Sherry Morgan at

Max in Somers, NY

Update 5-11-22: We’ve received several good applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Meet sweet Max, a 19 month old male Blenheim.

Max is a sweet, loving, cuddly, outgoing boy who gets along wonderfully with other dogs, and cats. Max makes himself right at home very quickly.

The foster family cannot say enough wonderful things about Max. Max is a real social butterfly and loves to be right in the middle of the action. He prefers to be with his humans and follows his caregiver from room to room.

Max was house trained, but was raised on wee-wee pads. The foster family does not use wee-wee pads and is trying to break the habit by only going for walks outside and jaunts in the fenced in yard. Max will mark occasionally partly due to other male dogs in the home and because he has yet to be neutered. This will happen on May 11th. Once he is neutered the marking will most likely dissipate. Max has already made great strides in just a few short days. He is a very quick learner and a good listener. A quick clap and a firm no will stop him in his tracks.

Previous veterinarian records have Max up to date on his vaccinations. Health is otherwise unremarkable, so a healthy pup.

Max has free rein of the house when the foster family is home. Otherwise, Max is left in a gated safe space. Max is being walked every 2-3 hours during training. First walk upon waking is around 6:30-7:00 am. Last walk around 10:00 pm and then he settles in to his crate next to the fosters bed. Max is a great sleeper and likes his crate as long as his human is nearby.

Max has been an absolute joy and would make a great addition to any home that has someone to dedicate the time and attention that he so deserves. In return you will be showered with love, kisses and snuggles.

If you are interested in adopting Max, please fill out the application for adoption if you haven’t already and then get in touch with Michelle Farnum at so she knows to look at your application. Thank you!

Fritz in Broken Arrow, OK

Here is Fitz with his new dad…

My official name is Fitzgerald, because I was released from a breeder on St. Patrick’s Day, but you can call me Fitz. I never had a name before I came to rescue, so I’m flexible. The kind soul who rescued me realized I needed love and some medical care, so she surrendered me to Cavalier Rescue USA.

If I could talk, I would tell you that I had a difficult first six years. No one was kind to me. I didn’t have a warm bed and all the food I could eat. People still scare me when they move too quickly, but now I feel secure enough to sit with quiet humans. I love to be petted and I’ll even come for a good treat!

I don’t walk on a leash yet. Those were scary things in the bad place. But I’m willing to learn and I can carry the leash for you. I would like to explore your fenced yard, but I really don’t like to get my feet wet. You may have to encourage me to walk in the grass … unless I see a squirrel!

My favorite spot is my foster mom’s comfy sofa. I liked it so much I learned to use pet steps in one afternoon. I love belly rubs. I will also sit with you and watch television. There are some pretty strange creatures on the big box on the wall. Sometimes I talk to them.

I will sleep in a crate, but I’d much rather keep you warm in the big bed. If there is thunder, I would really appreciate you holding me close and rubbing my head, so I know I’m safe. My foster mom says she will send my favorite pillow – my inflatable collar – with me to my new family.

It’s taking me a little time to figure out the inside / outside potty thing. Getting neutered helped, but it’s best to take me out every two hours or so until I build good habits. I may need a belly band until I learn your house and schedule.

I’m neutered and my vaccinations are up to date. I lost some teeth during my dental, but I have plenty of good ones left. I’m heartworm-clear and on heartworm, flea and tick preventive. My veterinarian declared my heart healthy. My ears are healing nicely and I’m recovering from surgery to fix my limp, so I’ll need to get some exercise to make my muscles stronger.

Henry in Savage, MD

Here is Henry with his new family…

When you look up the definition of “Happy Puppy” in the dictionary, you will see a picture of wonderful 7 month old Henry who was born 9/26/2021. He is a fun loving Blenheim Cavalier whose big brown eyes will draw you in. Henry came into Cavalier Rescue USA when his family realized that he’d be better suited in a home that can provide more consistent love, attention, and play. 

Henry is still very much a puppy, in all of the good ways of course, and he is still working on learning basic commands. He’s eager to learn and is obedient once he understands what you’re asking him to do. Henry is incredibly playful and loves to play with toys, fetch the ball, and wrestle with his foster brothers. He’s still learning the ropes and very much looks to his Cavalier brothers to show him the way. Henry enjoys walks but could continue to use a bit of leash guidance and he is most happy to be running in the backyard or sunbathing. 

He is still working on being fully house trained and he’s getting better at alerting when it’s time to potty; he will need continued training with house training in his forever home. Henry is crate trained.

Henry is the epitome of a velcro dog and he wants to be consistently with his person for reassurance. He loves to snuggle in a lap or curl up at your feet and gives the sweetest kisses to remind you that he’s there. He has not learned how adorable he is yet and uses his puppy face to his advantage in every situation!

Currently Henry lives with two pup foster brothers and really enjoys spending time playing with them and looks to both of them to provide direction. He’s really shown amazing growth in confidence as he navigates the world with other pups in the house. He is still learning how to “dog” and will do best with a companion that has equal amounts of energy and playfulness.

Henry is a joyful, loving, and incredibly sweet Cavalier and he’s ready to live the spoiled life that he deserves!
