3 Pups in Warren, OH

We have 3 puppies up for adoption that came to rescue when their breeders found that they had bred more dogs than they could sell. These puppies were born on March 6, 2023 and they came to us at 9 weeks of age. They have had their first puppy shots, been dewormed, examined, and found to be healthy. The mother is a purebred Cavalier and the father was a “Beaglier” ( ½ Beagle, ½ Cavalier).

The litter was named “The Imagine Litter” after John Lennon’s song “Imagine” because the lyrics fit the dream of many people, outlawing the commercial (“puppy mill”) breeding/selling of animals. The puppies were named after Beatles songs, Martha, Desmond and Rocky.

These puppies have run and played in grass with their mother and with each other, met cats, other dogs, chickens, people of all ages, been taken on multiple car rides, and to multiple homes. They have walked on many different surfaces and learned to climb stairs. They listened to music and heard loud noises and were handled daily by 2 or more people. Each day as fosters has included at least one new adventure that they had not experienced previously. They are learning to walk on a leash and are doing well with that. They have been socialized as much as possible and should continue to be socialized when in their forever home so that they can hopefully lead lives free of fears of unknown noises, people, and other dogs and grow up to be confident dogs.

The puppies are crate trained and learning to go outside to the potty.  They currently will use a puppy pad when necessary but prefer to go outside. They love being praised when they “go” outside and sometimes even look up to their human for their compliment and treat after pottying outdoors. 

Martha is shorter haired, and her beagle genes are evident in her face, including the little wrinkles above her eyes. She could end up being a short- haired adult, but that’s hard to know at this point. She has very soft Cavalier-like fur with Cavalier markings, as do all the puppies. She is long-legged and lean like her mother. She is very sensitive and a little less brave than her littermates. She is super cuddly and settles right down after running and playing outside. She has learned her name and sometimes comes when called if she is not too occupied carrying a stick or chewing on a toy.

Rocky is the bigger of the two males in the litter and has shaggy hair, and likely will be long- haired as an adult. He loves being held and talked to and will come when called, sometimes. He is a total sweetheart. He is also the biggest boned of all the littermates.

Desmond is about as darling as they come, both in looks and in the way he runs with a toy or ball in the yard, making sure he doesn’t lose it to one of the other puppies. He is very cuddly and soft and likes to lie in your arms on his back and have his chest and neck scratched. The combination of Cavalier markings, soft Cavalier fur, sweet expression give him a very distinctive look. He has shorter hair at this point and likely will be shorter haired as an adult, but only time will tell for sure. 

For their new homes, we are seeking someone home much of the day, with another dog, older respectful child or an adult who is willing to play with the dog. These puppies love to run and play in the yard and need time each day to run, explore and play. A securely fenced yard is necessary, as these puppies have a lot of energy and need a safe play area. 

If you are interested in adopting one of these puppies, please complete the online application if you have not already and then email Sherry Morgan at morgans817@sbcglobal.net to let her know of your interest.

Roxy in Westfield, IN

Update 6-1-23: We think we may have found a great home for this pup so aren’t taking more applications for now.

Meet Roxy, a gorgeous, petite 2 year old Ruby Cavalier cuddle bug born 09/12/20! Roxy weighs 12 lbs and has a rich, ruby coat. Roxy came to Cavalier Rescue USA from a breeder. She is now spayed and microchipped, had a dental, is up to date on vaccinations and preventatives and is ready for her lucky forever family. She is the happiest, most loving, playful, well behaved doll! She is full of energy and ready to play but also loves a lot of quiet lap time.

Roxy gets along well with the two resident Cavalier boys in her foster home and got along with two female Cavaliers and a cat during an overnight stay in another home. Roxy is happy to sleep in her crate but prefers to sleep with the Cavalier boys in their big bed gated in their special room.

She is reliably house trained and will need reinforcement while she learns her way around her forever home. A home with a physical fence will be ideal as Roxy is still young and loves to run and play. Any fence must be very secure as she often dug under the fence at the breeders home and is still quite interested in what’s on the other side of the fence in her foster home. Roxy is steadily improving on her leash walking.

Roxy has a grade 4 luxating patella (left leg). She exhibits no pain or problems and no surgery is recommended at this time. The Vet recommends New Zealand Deer Velvet supplement for joint health. Roxy has no heart murmur or other known heart conditions.

Roxy would be best in a home with someone home most of the time. Another friendly dog in the house would be ideal to give her companionship when her people aren’t available.

Quinn in Columbus, OH

Update 5-26-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Quinn was born on November 3rd, 2022. She is a healthy girl with no medical issues. Quinn is skeptical of new environments and humans but is gaining bravery and confidence each day. She likes to observe and take it all in before giving her opinion. Once she decides it’s good, she’s ready to go!

Quinn is a tiny one, only weighing 8 pounds, but she can hold her own. She does not let anyone boss her around. Quinn gets along great with other dogs and you can often find her nestled up next to one when she’s resting. She loves to play and is ready to go first thing in the morning.  

Quinn loves being outside and going for walks or chasing her foster siblings in the fenced yard. She is so fast! One must watch her carefully though because she can slip through tiny spaces. Every time a door is opened, Quinn comes running to see if it’s outside play time. She could spend her whole day just sitting in the grass watching the world go by. 

Quinn is great in a crate and does not mind break times in her cozy space. While she prefers to be on a lap or couch, she will go into her crate with no problem. She doesn’t bark or whine inside. Once released, she will thank you with enthusiastic tail wags and a kiss.

Quinn is a sweetheart. She is a neighborhood and family favorite. She doesn’t need a lot of attention but often gets it because she’s simply too adorable to walk by without a cuddle.  

If you’re interested in adopting Quinn and live with a 2-hour drive of Columbus, please complete our online application (if you haven’t already) and then contact Sherri Morgan at morgans817@sbcglobal.net so she knows of your interest.

Breeze in St. Louis, MO

Here is Breeze with her new family…

Life with Breeze is, well, a breeze! This 6-year-old tricolor boy is as laid-back, well-mannered, and easy-going as they come.

Breeze came into rescue as a breeder release, and it appears he was well cared for. He is potty trained except for a few accidents as he adjusted, and surprisingly no marking behavior after a few days as well.

Breeze is initially timid, but he still welcomes pets from his humans and time with his Cavalier foster sister. Once he warms up, what a joy! Breeze is sweet, happy, loves to go on walks, follow his foster sister, gently carry a favorite toy, and most of all play fetch. Don’t get started unless you’ve got some time to spend because Breeze will play as long as you are willing!

Breeze is not treat or food motivated, and in fact, may even skip a few meals here and there. He is learning the sit command, but since he is so well behaved and always by your side, teaching him “come” and “stay” have been more challenging.

Someone in his foster family is around most of the time, but when they do need to be away Breeze seems perfectly content with the company of another dog. He can be quite independent and sometimes he’ll excuse himself to his humans’ bedroom or another room of the house to get his space. 

Breeze is not crate trained but has shown no interest in being in his humans’ bed or even a couch. He seems very happy with a comfy dog bed that’s close enough so he can still keep his eyes and his nose on his loved ones.

When he came into rescue Breeze had a medical evaluation, was neutered, his vaccines were brought up to date, and had a dental cleaning where a few teeth removed. Otherwise, he is in perfect health and has no diagnosed conditions, nor is he on any medication. He is up to date on heartworm and flea/tick prevention.

If you are the right family for Breeze, please complete our online application (if you haven’t already) and email Sarah Noebels at Cavalierrescuesarah@gmail.com to let her know of your interest.

Tate in Columbus, OH

Tate, Tate, Tate the Great!

Do you like snacks and snuggling on the sofa?  Me too!
Do you like being outside and going for a walk?  Same!  
Do you always want someone around?  Obviously!
Actually, I like anything you like. I just want you to be happy. 
Tate was born on September 28, 2022. He is a healthy boy with no medical issues. He has been in foster care for a month and is gaining so much confidence and bravery every day. Tate is eager to please and a total sweetheart. He is a great listener and will come right away when called.
Tate is a LOVER! He wants belly rubs, cuddles, ear scratches, etc. and will give you a million licks in return. Tate has a healthy amount of energy. He really enjoys being outside and going for walks or chasing his foster sibs in the fenced yard. He was the MVP at all of his foster sibling’s sporting events. He certainly won over all of the fans, even from the opposing teams! When he comes inside, he enjoys chewing on a bone, ice or an appropriate toy. 
Tate does well with other dogs but would enjoy ALL of the attention of a single pup household too. He is a flexible dude. Tate is a ROCKSTAR in a crate. While he prefers to be in a lap or on a couch, he will go into his crate with no problem. He doesn’t bark or whine inside. Once released, he will thank you to high heavens with tons of kisses.
Tate is not only a big cuddler, but also a comedian.  He makes us laugh with his jumping bean enthusiasm when he hears “TREAT” and his favorite froggy lounge pose when he’s resting. Tate provides endless smiles and deserves a home that will treasure all of his wonderful qualities.

Kona in Jeffersonville, IN

Are you ready to give a young boy a fresh start on a happy life? If so, Kona would love to meet you!
Kona is a 16 month old, Blenheim boy, born 12-25-2021. Yes, he’s a Christmas gift! Kona came into rescue from a less than ideal beginning. He spent a lot of his former life in a crate. Consequently, he does not like being confined and he wants to explore the world like a puppy. Kona does sleep peacefully in an x-pen at night but I think he would love to snuggle in a big bed with his forever people.
Kona’s ideal forever home would have people home as much as possible, very little crate time if any, and another young playful dog. He gets along well with his foster pack, including a 5 month old Cavalier puppy. He has not been exposed to cats or young children. A fenced yard is not necessary for Kona. As he is still learning about the world, he will put anything in his mouth. We have been taking him out on leash most of the time because of this. He does enjoy running and chasing when off leash in the fenced yard.
Kona is reliably housebroken. He was recently neutered, which eliminated his previous humping behavior. He is microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and on a heartworm preventative. He is a healthy 13 pounds. Best of all, he is heart and knee clear!
Kona loves Nylabones and playing with soft, stuffed toys. However, he should be supervised with soft toys so he can’t rip them and swallow the stuffing.
Because he was confined  a lot as a young dog, Kona is fearful of many common household sights and sounds. He has reacted to the vacuum, can opener, food processor and blender with barking. After use, he has sniffed the offending item with the rest of the pack and is becoming less reactive. He is still, however, a barker and not suited to apartment life.
Kona has two speeds, full speed and cuddly calm. He will gladly curl up and watch tv or read a book with his person. If you can give Kona the new start he deserves, please fill out an online application and email Sherry Morgan regarding your interest at morgans817@sbcglobal.net
