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.
