Bella in Logansport, IN

Bella is an affectionate Ruby Cavalier mix who is approximately 2-years-old. She was found on July 4th running around in Indianapolis, and she was placed with Cavalier Rescue USA when her owners could not be found.   

Bella has a wonderful personality. Bella is playful, and she loves to play with all kinds of toys, especially squeaky toys and balls. She also enjoys running outside and playing fetch. So, a home with a good sized fenced in yard is a must. After a play session, she wants lots of cuddles, and she will happily sit with you on the couch. Bella does not like being alone. She just wants to be with her “person,” and she will follow you around the house.

Bella gets along really well with her foster family’s other Cavaliers, and she enjoys playing and cuddling with them. However, she does get jealous occasionally if someone else is getting attention. She is great in the car and enjoys going for a ride in her car seat. She seems to do well with children too. 

Bella is completely housebroken, and she has not had a single accident in her foster home. She does not like being crated, but she does well when gated in the living room and kitchen while her foster family is gone.

Bella likes going for a walk, but she is still learning to walk well on a leash. She pulls a bit, and she gets scared of other dogs and will bark at them when she encounters them on a walk. So, additional practice with walking on a leash will be necessary. 

Bella does get startled by unexpected noises (loud cars, police cars, the neighbor’s dog barking, etc.), and she will bark in response. Her fear of noises might explain why she got lost around the 4th of July. 

Bella is up-to-date on her vaccines, and she was spayed while in rescue. She also takes monthly flea and heartworm preventatives. Bella does have some food sensitivity which we are addressing with a limited ingredient dog food.

Bella would be happiest in a family where someone is home most of the time. Her forever home should have a securely fenced yard with enough room for her to run and play fetch. Bella is a wonderful and loving girl who will make an excellent companion.

Margo in University City, MO

Update 9-18-22: We have received several good applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

My foster mom named me Margo, and I feel like it fits me. Before she took me in, I didn’t even have a name! I came to Cavalier Rescue USA from a large commercial breeding operation. The vet thinks I am about 7-years-old, although my foster mom says I look like a puppy because I am a tiny 12 pound bundle of Blenheim love. I am house trained and have only had one accident. That was the first day when I didn’t understand indoor manners. My foster brother & sister showed me the way.

When I went into the back yard, I could not believe there was so much room to run and all the squirrels and bunnies to chase! I am learning to walk on a leash, but it is just too distracting! I had trouble hearing but the vet said it was a bad yeast infection. I hear loud noises, mom claps loudly to get my attention, but sometimes I am just too busy chasing a cricket or squirrel to come. I do sit for my treats. They are pretty neat! I had never had any before!

At night, I get in my crate for my treat, but I would prefer to sleep on the big bed with my person. My foster mom also feeds me in my crate. I get distracted, wanting to see if my foster brother & sister are getting something better than I am!

Margo’s foster mom says: Margo has been here with us for a month. She had her dental, spay, and hernia repair on September 7th. She is healthy, and has a clear heart! Her stitches will be removed on the 22nd and she will be ready for her forever home.

She was exceptionally easy to potty train, and just wants love and belly rubs! She is a survivor, and has nothing but love to give. She will be your little shadow and follows me from room to room just because having loving humans in her life is such a wonderful experience. She is 12 pounds of love. Margo gets a little anxious when I leave to run errands, but has the company of her foster sister. She has been left uncrated for up to 5 hours with no accidents. She will get carsick on longer trips. Right now we are working on short rides to the nursery or to visit a friend. When people visit here, she is very social and gets right in there for a pet or for someone to hold her. One of Margo’s favorite pastimes is lying in the front window watching squirrels and bunnies. She did bark at them but not so much any more..

Margo was rescued from a horrible breeding situation, and had a grade 3 dental disease and gingivitis. She had 4 teeth extracted during her dental cleaning. She had an inguinal hernia and an umbilical hernia and both were repaired when she was spayed. She is heart worm clear and will be micro-chipped. After living in a 3ft x 3ft  foot cage for most of her life, the whole world is a new experience. Having a fenced yard is a must as she loves to run and chase anything that moves. We are working on leash training and come. Learning “come” has been a bit difficult if there is something more interesting, however she loves her people more than anything in the yard. She is an amazing and resilient girl, coming from that terrible background but still willing to love and trust people.

Margo is fed in her crate on a flat plate. This is because at first she was distracted by 2 other dogs, but mostly because one is on a special restricted diet. I think she was used to eating off the floor of her cage. She is a very dainty eater, and gentle when taking treats from your hand.

The vet believes she is about 7-years-old. Her heart shows no signs of the murmur which is so common in this breed. She loves to lie next to her person, and have her tummy rubbed. If you stop, she will often paw at your hand letting you know she wants more!! She would do well as an only child or with another small, easy going dog for company.

If you would can provide the forever home Margo needs, please fill out our online application if you haven’t already. Then, email Sarah Noebels at to let her know of your interest.

Lizzie in Columbus, OH

Update 9-19-22: We have received several good applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Meet Lizzie, a beautiful 13 week old Cavapoo. She was born on, or around June 14, 2022 and will be ready to go to her forever home after September 17th. She is an adorably sweet and energetic puppy who really loves to cuddle.

Lizzie has a very healthy appetite and is eating regularly. Lizzie is doing quite well with house training and has very few accidents. She absolutely loves playtime and chasing her foster siblings.

She does have a small umbilical hernia that can be fixed when she is spayed. Since there was not a lot of information regarding Lizzie’s vaccinations, the vet is starting over and will be giving her the first series of vaccines on September 15th. Her new family will need to complete her puppy vaccines and have her spayed and microchipped when she is old enough. Documentation from adopters vet is contractually required prior to turning 9 months old.

Lizzie will be happy in a home with other dogs and older children, or in a single dog home with an owner who gives her ample activity and love. She does very well being crate trained at night and a little bit during the day, if we go out. Lizzie is very good on a leash and loves taking walks, which helps with her high energy. However, when she is tired, she loves to sleep in your lap.

If you’re interested in adopting Lizzie, please complete our online application, if you haven’t already, and then email Sherry Morgan so she knows of your interest.

Milo in Prairie Village, KS

Say hello to Milo, a very sweet 9-month-old tricolor boy! His previous owner acquired him from a breeder and then realized he did not have enough time to properly train a puppy. Cavalier Rescue was contacted, and Milo came into foster care. Milo is a lover boy and likes to snuggle by his humans. He loves attention.

Milo is young, active, and rambunctious – this pup has lots of energy! He likes to follow his people around the house, and he will often get underfoot. He tries to dominate his Cavalier foster brother. Milo’s foster family is working to correct this, and have already seen improvement. His recent neuter surgery should help to diminish that behavior. While being neutered, Milo also had a small hernia repaired. He is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and healthy.

Milo enjoys being outdoors, and we recommend a fenced yard for him. When the weather is nice, he delights in running around in the backyard at his foster home. Like many dogs, he doesn’t care for rain and doesn’t like to go out in it. He loves zoomie time – which consists of playing with his toys and then running circles around the rooms and in front of his foster brother or other small doggie playmates. He gets along well with his foster brother and sister, but will bark at the large neighbor dogs across the fence. Milo has been on a few walks, and he needs more training for leash manners.

Milo is fed in his crate, and he eagerly runs in there at mealtime. He’s very food-oriented and will jump to get food or treats. Foster parents (along with his foster brother setting an example) taught him to sit, and he does now.


Milo was not housetrained when he came into rescue and is still working on that skill. Poor guy never learned how to be a house pet, and his foster parents have been working on appropriate doggie manners. He is learning the routine at his foster home and doing well. He will need to stay on a regular potty schedule to maintain progress with new habits. Milo is young and trainable; he would do best with a family where someone can be home with him a good part of the day.

Milo favors men over women. Although he feels safe and comfortable with foster parents, he acts shy and hesitant with other women he doesn’t know. We are unsure how Milo would be around children – he has seen them in the park and just stares at them. We prefer to place him in a home without young children.

The ideal home for Milo would have someone familiar and experienced with housetraining skills, who can commit to working with teaching house manners. With consistent training, this affectionate young pup will learn how to be a great family pet, and he deserves a forever family to call his own.

Milo is being fostered in Prairie Village, KS. If you think you might be the right person or family for Milo, please fill out our online application (if you have not done so already) and then contact Deborah Barnes at to let her know you have applied. Applicants who live within a few hours driving distance of the Kansas City area will be considered. Please take a moment to read about our adoption process by clicking this link: Adoption Process.

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

Sunny in Gibsonburg, OH

We would like to introduce Sunny. This beautiful lady was released from a commercial breeder. When she was released, she had some medical issues, but we’ve taken care of all of those and now is a healthy, happy Cavalier. She has an appointment scheduled for her dental in September. She had been spayed and is current with her vaccinations including monthly flea and heartworm preventive.

She is very obedient and always so very happy. Sunny makes quick friends with everyone she meets and would love to be your best friend. She gets along great with other dogs. Her foster family does not know how she does with other types of animals or children.

Since Sunny has been with her foster family, she has discovered toys and is learning how to play with them. She is so happy with this discovery of new entertainment. Right now, her favorite toy is the tennis ball. Sunny also enjoys tummy rubs. Also, one of her favorite activities is being groomed. Sunny thoroughly enjoys being brushed. She loves all the attention she can have. She is pure joy!

Sunny requires a secure fenced yard. Although she very rarely has the desire to run laps, it is best that she is always kept safe. She will also be happiest with an owner who is home much of the time. 

Sunny will make a tremendous addition to a loving and patient forever family. She is the sweetest girl and so very loving and would enjoy spending lots of time in your lap. Sunny is happy doing whatever you would like to do. She would be glad to be your companion. She has been through so much and deserves a loving forever family.
