Punkin and Dunkin in Wakeman, OH

This precious bonded pair came to Cavalier Rescue USA when a Good Samaritan found them and called the Cavalier Rescue USA. 


I am approximately a 5 year old Blenheim Cavalier. Foster mom says I am very sweet and cuddly. I like to give kisses and stay right beside you in the house. I enjoy chewing on hard bones and will play with some toys.

I am house trained however; I do not know how to ask to go outside. Foster Mom is home almost all the time and she takes us out frequently. I like dining in my crate where I chew every bite of my kibble slowly. I weigh 12 pounds.

At night I curl up with Dunkin in our crate. We like being close together. Foster Mom takes us out for walks and I love to go. I want to chase everything that moves, leaves blowing around, birds flying, butterflies, grasshoppers. If it moves I’ll go after it.


I am a tricolor Cavalier. My age is approximately 4 years and weigh 13 pounds.  I am a ball of energy! I do lots of exploring in the house. My foster brother and sister have a squawking ball that I’m just crazy about; I do not want to take a break when we have that out to play with. WOW! It is so much fun!!! I chase it and knock it around with my feet and nose all while barking at it! I also like to chew on hard tasty bones.

I like sitting on Foster Mom’s lap or snuggling very close to her. When we go for walks I am interested in everything. I start smelling all the wonderful smells and I wander all about. I am totally into birds and if I could fly I would catch them. I am doing well with my house training however; I do not know how to ask to go outside. 

Foster Mom here. Punkin and Dunkin are such a delightful energetic pair of Cavaliers. They will need a securely fenced in yard. They like to take their time outside to do their business. They are house trained however; they do not know how to ask to go outside for potty breaks. This is not a problem if someone can be home most of the time with them.  Both are little explorers sniffing everything and giving chase if something moves. Sometimes things can scare them and they need to feel safe and secure. We were recently at the vet and both are vaccinated, spayed/neutered and had a dental done. Both are in good health. They enjoy car rides and do very well in the car. Punkin and Dunkin like to cuddle up with you and give you lots of kisses.  Dunkin gobbles his food and will eat Punkin’s food if they are not separated when it is time to eat. Typically they are very quiet in the house and only bark when necessary. They get along very well with the cat.

Rusty and Rosie in Lebanon, IN

Rusty and Rosie came into rescue together. These pups can go to a new home together or can go to different homes. Rosie is Rusty’s mother. She is 19 months old (born 2/24/22) and her son Rusty is 10 months old (born 1/21/23). 

Rusty is full of energy and being so young, he’s all puppy. He has his favorite Stuffed toys that will squeak. He loves squeaking them. 

His favorite place to lay is either next to or on his foster mom’s lap. He is very loving and sweet with her.

His mother, Rosie, has very much the same temperament. She loves being as close to her human as possible.

Rusty and Rosie love running in the fenced yard. The think their main responsibility is to guard the bird feeders. They get so excited when they chase the birds away and then run back to get into position.

They both were well cared for in their previous home. Rusty has been neutered and Rosie has been spayed. They are up to date on all vaccines. We’ve been working on house breaking. They are doing fairly well and are let out to potty every 2 or 3 hours.

They prefer being in the same room with their foster mom. If not, Rosie can get vocal. They do well on leads and aren’t fond of being in crates. Rusty is doing better in a crate and is fed in his crate. They have not been around children, but given a proper introduction and time with them, they should do well.

Rosie and Rusty are attached to each other, but also function independently. Rusty will growl a little when one of the other dogs in his foster home tries to take his toys. That said, both Rosie and Rusty play well with the other dogs in the home. They are fun, affectionate, sweet Cavaliers.

If you are interested in one or both of these delightful Cavaliers, please fill out the online application if you haven’t already and then email Sherry Morgan at morgans817@sbcglobal.net so she knows to review your application. Thank you!

Cooper in University City, MO

My name is Cooper, and I am a handsome (at least that is what I am called) 5-year-old tricolor Cavalier. I was born 6/16/2018. I am a smart guy, and know all my commands, but sometimes I forget to ‘heel’ when I see a squirrel. I love long walks with my person, and move fairly fast, and love to smell everything! There are so many interesting things to sniff, and I love to find things to chase or chew on. 

When my foster mom leaves me at home, I get anxious, but my foster sister lets me know she will be back, so I am getting better but still need to lie on the back of the couch and watch out the window until she comes home. I don’t have accidents in the house, and I know to bark or ring the bell on the back door when I need to go out.

I have a basket of toys, and especially love my Lamb Chop! It is fun to chew the squeaker out! My foster mom takes me on car rides with my foster sister, and we sit in car seats and I can see out the windows! I really like going to the pet store and looking for treats!

Cooper has been in his foster home for about 2 months. He is a very sweet guy, who will be your velcro dog and give you lots of kisses. He has lots of energy and we usually go on 2 to 3 mile walks every day. His previous owner released him to Cavalier Rescue USA because he would pull too hard on leash whenever he saw an animal on the trail. At one point she fell, and broke her ankle, and sadly could no longer care for him. He has a big yard here to run in, but wants his person to be out with him. FYI, he is very good at supervising yard work!

Cooper has apparently had bouts of diarrhea and was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Disease, and was prescribed a Science Diet prescription food. He takes a medication (takes one Budesonide, 1mg day. The cost is about $25 a month.) with his morning meal and recently I have begun making his food, with ground meats and veggies and fruits, baked in a loaf. So far it has really agreed with him and I think this might be less expensive. Cooper was also diagnosed with a mild heart murmur, common to the breed, and was rated a grade 2 at this time. He will need to be checked yearly by a cardiologist and does not need medication at this time.

He is a very smart and loving guy, and knows all the commands including sit, stay, down, roll over, fetch (sometimes) and heel, (unless he sees a squirrel), and return. He definitely needs a securely fenced yard as he is not savvy to cars and danger, and would like to run out the front door if not monitored. Cooper is completely house trained, and we have had no accidents since he arrived.  

He does not like to be crated, and his anxiety becomes apparent when he is. Since he was used to sleeping with his previous owner, he would very much like to be in the big bed with his forever family. This will make the changes he has been through much easier. He and his foster sister get along well and he may do better with another calm pup in the household to let him know it is okay when his person leaves for a few hours. He loves to hang out when I am in the kitchen, so he can help keep the floor clean! He will follow you all around the house and lay across your lap when you sit down. When he gets too warm, he will move to your side. Cooper is a larger Cavalier, but his weight is good at 22 pounds, and he is very active. He does love dirty laundry! He will chew holes but not swallow anything. He will also “shop” in uncovered trash cans, so keeping laundry and trash can secure is good. 

He is neutered, had a dental, and is up to date on all his shots. He gets along with everyone, although he has not been around young children. He has been a joy to foster and would do well in a home that is calm, but active so he gets his exercise and stimulation. A home with another calm pup and someone who is home most of the time to give him the attention he requires would be great. He definitely loves his walks and knows what the word means when said out loud. I am trying to teach him to bring his harness and leash! He was very well behaved at the groomer. His coat is shiny and silky and he is easy to groom. Cooper is a sweet loving, curious and active boy who deserves the best home possible.

If you are the family who can provide Cooper with his forever home, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email Sarah Noebels at cavalierrescuesarah@gmail.com to let her know of your interest.

Bingo in Newark, OH

Bingo is a high energy, adorable 2-year-old Blenheim Cavalier born 10/10/2021 who is extremely friendly and desires to please. His owners gave him to rescue because they didn’t have enough time for him. He has some separation anxiety, so an owner who is at home most of time would be best.

Bingo loves to cuddle, sit with his family, and loves his doggie friends. At times he has difficulty being calm and quieting down. He gets along famously with children and other dogs but is untested with cats. He requires a securely fenced yard and experienced caregiver to teach him his manners. It would probably be best to have him with another dog his size, so that he would have someone to play with and burn up his energy each day.

Bingo tolerates the crate at night and also when alone at home, but otherwise voices disapproval at being crated, and is working on that. He is learning to ride in a car. but not good with riding in the crate in the car or being seat-belted in the car. That is going to take a lot of practice.

Bingo also has a habit of trying to run out the door when the door opens, so he always should have a collar on when people are going in and out the door. We are working on breaking this habit and are making some progress! Bingo is working on walking on a leash calmly without pulling, and that is a work in progress.

Margot in Dubois, IN

Margot is a lovely petite 3-year-old Ruby Cavalier. Margot was a breeding dog at a commercial breeder. She began having some health issues, lost a lot of weight, and was taken to the vet who found her to be diabetic. This led the breeder to give her to Cavalier Rescue USA and that very day she became my foster dog!

Margot was in very poor health, she was 8 pounds, and had hair loss over 50% of her body due to lack of proper nutrition and having untreated diabetes. She immediately went to our vet, and we began a healthy diet, and started her on insulin. It took about 6 weeks to get her insulin at a therapeutic level but soon Margot was up to 13.5 pounds, her fur began to grow in, she had light in her eyes, and she flourished! 


Today Margot’s favorite things are: her foster mom, her chair where she hoards her treasures, her food, treats, chew bones, and walks. She loves to go for walks!

Margot’s endearing qualities are: her insane love of mealtime, her skills at finding new and unique treasures to add to her hoard, her absolute joy when it is snuggle time, and her newly found love of the outdoors and just doing dog stuff.

Margot’s works in progress: she is still skittish around new people, or situations, and nervous occasionally when being picked up. Margot needs a kind and patient family who will understand she still has some fears to work through.  

Margot’s ideal home is one with experience working with a dog that is diabetic, or willing to learn. She needs to be kept to a strict feeding and injection schedule, also keeping her feedings & treats the same daily. She enjoys kids but would not feel comfortable in a home with young unpredictable toddlers. Margot is excellent with cats and dogs of all sizes. She does like her personal space respected by her dog and cat family members.

Sophia in Grove City, OH

Hi my name is Sophia, I am a 5 year old Blenheim Cavalier. My foster family refers to me as Princess Sophia as I am a little princess. In my past life I was a breeding momma that was no longer able to produce milk so they gave me to Cavalier Rescue USA.

I am a little shy and get startled by fast movements that I may not seem coming. Other than that, I am the sweetest little girl. Can I be your sweet girl?

I enjoy living with my foster family. I get so much attention from everyone  and so I know I will be happiest in a home where someone will be home most of the day. I love my foster brother, we do everything together. We go outside, eat together, play and sleep together. I would love a companion dog in my new home. I also get along well with my foster kitty brother and children.

I just learned how to do steps and am getting really good at them. I do not know how to jump though so my foster family picks me up so I can cuddle on the couch or get on the bed. I do like to sleep on the big bed with my foster brother as well. My foster parents try to take me for walks but they are not my favorite. We are still working on that and maybe one day I will really enjoy them. I would do best in a home with a fenced in yard so I can roam as I do like to do that, leash free.

I  was spayed while in foster care, which went well. I also had a dental so now I have pretty white pearls. I weigh in at 21lbs and am a healthy girl. I did have a little ear build up but the doc put me on meds to clear that up. I am up-to-date on my vaccines, and heartworm meds.

I would love to find my furever home for the holidays. Will you be my family? If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application if you haven’t already and then email Sherry Morgan at morgans817@sbcglobal.net
