Ella in Middletown, PA

Update 1-31-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Ella is wonderful 5 year old beauty born 12/28/2017 that only wants to love and be loved. She will follow you everywhere looking for a chance to sit in your lap or snuggle up beside you. She came into Rescue because her family could not keep up with her chronic ear infections and scratching.

In foster care her yeasty ear infection has been resolved and we have made adjustments to her diet and environment. Her ears are now clear and swelling is gone. Her scratching is now no more than any normal dog scratching. It is recommended that she does not live with a cat because of dander intolerance. While in rescue Ella was allergy tested for food and environmental triggers. We will give her new family the report, but some examples of allergens include canola oil, apples, strawberries, corn and wool. It’s very important that her family monitors ingredients in her food as well as her environment due to allergies and sensitivities.

Ella does get along with her small to medium foster dog friends, but we have noticed that she is shy around very large dogs. She definitely prefers to be with people though, so it would not be a problem if she is an only dog in your family.

Ella is perfectly housetrained and will go to the door to tell you whenever she needs to go outside. She can be trusted to be loose in the house for short periods of time if needed. She is also crate trained and will sleep quietly all night, but she would much prefer to be in bed with you! She rides nicely in the car in a crate but she does prefer to be in the doggie car seat. She also knows basic commands. Sit, Down, and Come and she walks nicely on leash.

Ella LOVES mealtime and treat time! She is currently at 17 lbs has already lost 1 pound in foster care and is working on losing another pound or 2. So don’t melt into those eyes when she begs for more!!

If you think you would be a good match for Ella, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com) and let her know you want to be considered for Ella. We prefer that you lived within a reasonable driving distance of Middletown, PA.

Derek in Austin, TX

Here is the pup with his new mom…

Are you ready for puppy love? Meet Derek, a tricolor boy, who was born on November 7, 2022. He was generously released to CR-USA by his owner, allowing us to find him a loving forever home from our extensive pool of applicants.

Derek is the most independent of his litter.  He is an energetic, outgoing nearly three-month-old who loves to play—running and jumping after and with his Cavalier foster litter mates. He and his litter mates chase his foster brother all around the yard. In total puppy fashion, he loves to explore new areas and is very curious. Because he is a puppy, he needs more supervision because of his curiosity. Derek is like a wind-up toy: playing extra hard and enjoying his chew toys, then collapsing in to nap time snuggled up with his fur sisters.

He is a quick learner and uses a doggy door to go in and out of the house, under the close supervision of his foster mom. He is in the process of being potty trained and needs to be taken out pretty frequently during the day. He sleeps in a crate with his siblings, and they have slept through the night without needing to go out. However, the pups have asked to go out for potty during the night as well.

Derek’s perfect home would be a place with someone home frequently to continue his potty and behavior training; he would be fine as an only dog or with a more submissive fur friend. His forever home should be puppy proofed as he will find anything on the floor or hanging low and chew or ingest, if given the opportunity. He needs a securely-fenced yard. His forever family needs to be prepared for puppy antics (bring your patience!) and should be committed to careful supervision and continued training for basic commands and potty skills. An enclosed puppy playpen area should be used when he can’t be directly supervised; a similar area can be used outside for his safety and monitoring potty skills.

He uses a crate to be fed. The door is then closed to keep his litter mates from stealing his food. He loves comfy pup beds, blankets and toys. He vocalized his displeasure during bath time!

Derek has had the first two rounds of puppy vaccines. His forever family will be responsible for the third round of puppy vaccines and rabies vaccine. In addition, his forever family will be required to have him neutered and microchipped by nine months of age.

Derek is fostered in Austin, TX. If you are interested in providing Derek a forever home, please complete the online application, if you haven’t already done so, and then contact Janice Cartwright at janicecartwright33@gmail.com so she knows of your interest. Families who live within a few hours’ drive of Austin will be considered.  Please also take a moment to read about our adoption process by clicking the following link: Process.

Coco in Austin, TX

Are you ready for puppy love? Meet Coco, a tricolor puppy, who was born on November 7, 2022. She was generously released to CR-USA by her owner, allowing us to find her a loving forever home from our extensive pool of applicants.

Coco was the first of her litter to achieve puppy milestones. She is the most vocal of the litter. She is an energetic, outgoing nearly three-month-old who loves to play, running and jumping after and with her Cavalier foster litter mates. She literally hops up like a bunny to pounce on her playmates. She and her litter mates chase her foster brother all around the yard. In total puppy fashion, she loves to explore new areas and is very curious. Because she is a puppy, she needs more supervision because of her curiosity. Coco is like a wind-up toy: playing extra hard and enjoying her chew toys, then collapsing in to nap time snuggled up with her fur brother and sister.

She is a quick learner and uses a doggy door to go in and out of the house, under the close supervision of her foster mom. She is in the process of being potty trained and needs to be taken out pretty frequently during the day. She sleeps in a crate with her siblings, and they have slept through the night without needing to go out. However, the pups usually ask to go out for potty during the night as well.

Coco’s perfect home would be a place with someone home frequently to continue her potty and behavior training and who has another friendly dog to play with and to teach her the ropes of her new home. Her forever home should be puppy proofed as she will find anything on the floor or hanging low and chew or ingest, if given the opportunity. She needs a securely-fenced yard. Her forever family needs to be prepared for puppy antics (bring your patience!) and should be committed to careful supervision and continued training for basic commands and potty skills. An enclosed puppy playpen area should be used when she can’t be directly supervised; a similar area can be used outside for her safety and monitoring potty skills.

She uses a crate to be fed. The door is then closed to keep her litter mates from stealing her food. She loves comfy pup beds, blankets and toys. She was not happy during her bath time, but should adjust with time.

Coco has had the first two rounds of puppy vaccines. Her forever family will be responsible for the third round of puppy vaccines and rabies vaccine. In addition, her forever family will be required to have her spayed and microchipped by nine months of age.

Buddy in Davis, CA

Update 1-27-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Meet the most adorable boy in the world BUDDY! He’s a very sweet little fella who was retired by his breeder. Buddy is a sweet soul and likes sweet people. He quickly became foster mom’s little shadow and is always ready for face rubs and cuddles. Buddy is a gem, he’s sooo cute and sooooo sweet, we all love him so much.

Buddy’s first half of his life’s job was to produce fur kids, so he is well socialized with other dogs and likes to play with his blind foster brother. He’s retired now and ready to relax and enjoy the rest of his life basking in the glory of your couch! Buddy has fun energy and enjoys a nice game of fetch! Fetch is new for this little guy as he probably didn’t get much playtime in the first half of his life, but he’s ready to make the best out of the next chapter.

Buddy went to the Vet for his intake and dental and he was respectful with the clinic cat and approached him gently. He is a pleasure to walk on a leash. He’s a ‘stick by you’ kind of guy. He enjoys roaming around and short walks. He doesn’t require an active lifestyle or long walks, he’d be just as happy with a walk around the block and spending time with you outdoors while you lounge.

Buddy will need a home where his new family is home most of the time, without very young children, which might scare him. He’s looking for special lap who understands where he’s at now and how amazing he is going to be. He also needs a family who is ready to love him through his current and potential future health issues. He has dry eyes and requires eye drops three times a day for life. He also has the genetic markers for degenerative myelopathy which will possibly present and decrease his mobility in his senior years. Right now though, he’s great and happily jumps up on the couch to be near you. He has a low grade 2 heart murmur, common to the breed, which requires no treatment at this time. He doesn’t hear that well. It doesn’t matter because he watches your every move like a hawk, he’s very attentive to his human. He was neutered and had a recent dental with 11 teeth extracted. Don’t worry, he still eats kibble like a pro. He is up to date on his vaccines.

Buddy will require loving family with a fully fenced yard, and someone who is home most of the time. Buddy will be happiest in a home that is caring, and calm. He really needs another gentle dog sibling (or 2) to play with and show him the ropes. He is very social and really loves to snuggle up. He sleeps well in the crate but is an early riser with a 6 am wakeup call. He would enjoy sleeping in the big bed with his person however he is very comfortable being crated. Buddy couldn’t be sweeter. He has a beautiful low maintenance coat and big beautiful eyes. He will steal your heart, your lap, your side of the couch and if you let him your bed. Could you be that special person who needs a new Buddy?

If you are ready to bring Buddy into your home and you live within a short driving distance to Davis, CA please send our Northern California Coordinator, Jessica Ford an email to smalldogbath@gmail.com and let her know of your interest.

Dash and Dallas in Tucson, AZ

Meet Dash and Dallas, a Beagle and Cavalier pair that are best buddies.

This totally sweet bonded 4 year old pair came to Cavalier Rescue USA because their owners busy lifestyle of work and raising a toddler meant less time for the dogs than they desired.

These boys are a great combination of feisty and sweet. They are fun to be around, curious, mischievous and playful. They are equally affectionate and cuddly as well. They can be a bit noisy when you leave them, but they settle down fairly quickly.

They love toys and to run around the yard and home together. Boisterous in play and gentle in cuddle time, Dallas, the Cavalier, and Dash, the Beagle, are a sweet pair. They are playful with other small dogs and Dash especially will engage with them. Dallas is wary of large dogs but, in typical Beagle fashion, Dash holds his own with our big pup.

Dash is very doting on Dallas and equally loving with people too, a total snuggle bug who leans into you once he knows you a bit. He’s the more dominant of the pair and is an intelligent, inquisitive, feisty little guy who loves play time and nap time too. He’ll pretend to be deaf at times, but let the treat bag wrinkle and he’s right by your side.

Dallas is a total love bug. He is gentle, soft tempered, and very devoted, everything a Cavalier should be. He loves stuffed toys, but also loves to de-squeak them, so sturdy toys for him are best. He loves to cuddle and turns on the charm with his big brown eyes. 

He takes his cues from his people, so if you are feeling active, so is he, and if you are having couch time, look for him to snuggle up.

Both dogs are healthy and were groomed and will have dentals while in our care. Dallas weighs 25 lbs and Dash 23 and both are at good weights. 

The best new family for this pair will have someone home with them most of the time who will actively engage them, a fenced yard, and solid positive training skills so the pups have refreshers on things like not jumping up, destuffing toys, or attempting to counter surf.

If you are interested in this truly delightful pair, please fill out our online application if you haven’t already and then email Carolyn at smallpaws4@mac.com so she knows to review your application.

Pickles in Cotati, CA

Here is Pickles with his new mom…

Hi! My name is Pickles! I’m 5 years young, fixed and pretty healthy except for my weight. You know how some people say “you are what you eat”? Well, my last family had kids and they gave me too many baby hot dogs, so now, I literally look like a PICKLE, or a little baby hot dog hahaha!

Unfortunately a family member became ill, so they turned me into rescue so I could find a home that will give me all the attention I deserve! Yep, I do deserve it cause I’m Pawsome!

I need a home who is interested in continuing my low calorie diet and will get me back to a healthy weight. I should be around 22 lbs, and 28.5 isn’t good for me. The issue is, I was so spoiled with those fattening treats and now I don’t really want to eat regular meals. I would probably be very interested though in some Honest Kitchen, Sojos or Vital Rabbit nibs which would encourage me to eat healthy food instead of just snacks. It’ll also help with my weight. I don’t wanna eat right now so I’ve been boycotting kibble but my Foster Mom sits with me and can encourage me to eat, but I’m just stuffed right now. We’ll have to figure that out together and you’ll need to refrain from feeding me garbage so I can get my weight in check!

Foster Mom says my coat is super luxurious and soft, softer than even her own Cavaliers! I really enjoy massages, being bathed, pets, cuddles and attention. I just want to be near you!

I’m very healthy, have a good heart and my teeth are good. When I was a puppy the 1st week they brought me home I jumped off the couch and broke my leg. I walk kinda funny (only sometimes) but it doesn’t stop me from anything. Short walks are best for me because of it and let’s face it, I’m out of shape, so it’s hard! I favor my back leg if the walks are too long, I think it healed a little funny, but other than that, it doesn’t bother me or slow me down.

I have a voice! I Can be vocal (when let out of the crate, seeing people or dogs on walks but I don’t sound aggressive) I just bark! I’m fine with other dogs but I care more about humans. So I’d be great as an only dog, no cats. Even though I am great with kids, and dogs I’m not good with them when there is food, I guard my food, therefore I’ll thrive in an adult household (Grandkids are fine but keep them away from my food please). My Foster mom was told I guard my food with dogs too, but I haven’t done this at her house.

I have separation anxiety, so I’ll be looking for a home where my human is home most of the time and wants to go everywhere with me.

I do have one naughty habit, sometimes I hump my bed Hehe. Just turn away and don’t look, I don’t wanna hurt your eyes ha! I had a few accidents the first few days but otherwise I’ve been great! I am potty trained and reliable.

If you are ready to bring me into your life, give me my forever and you live within a short driving distance to Cotati, CA please send our Northern California Coordinator, Jessica Ford an email to smalldogbath@gmail.com and let her know of your interest.
