Louie in Urbana, IL

Here is Louie with his new family…

Louie is an 11-month-old Blue Merle and Tan Cavalier who came to Cavalier Rescue USA through a Good Samaritan. He will be a year old on April 22nd and he’s looking for a forever family to celebrate his first birthday with! His blue merle and tan markings are very striking, and he is a very handsome boy. He is a happy, cuddly, and curious puppy.

Louie is very smart and loves to play with his toys. He also loves to play fetch. Louie knows some basic commands and enjoys playing with other dogs. He is also very happy to snuggle and lay in your lap. Louie loves his food and is a good eater and very food motivated. He is a healthy 19.5 lbs.

He is a quiet pup and hasn’t barked much yet. Louie does great on a leash and loves to take walks. Louie is social and enjoys meeting people.

Potty training has gone very well with regular trips outside. Louie will let you know if he needs to go out by going to the back door. It may take him a little time to learn where to go in his forever home but he caught on pretty quickly in his foster home.

He is crate trained and sleeps wonderfully all night. He is still a puppy and likes to chew but can easily be redirected to his chew toys. His forever family will need to make sure their house is puppy proofed and he does need to be watched to keep him from chewing things that could hurt him.

Since coming to Cavalier Rescue USA, Louie has been fully vetted including being neutered and brought up to date on all his vaccines and heartworm and flea/tick preventatives. He will be a great addition to any loving family.

Peaches and Abby in Wakeman, OH

Hi everyone! We are Peaches and Abby, a mother-daughter gorgeous Blenheim bonded pair of Cavalier ages 5 and 2. We came to Cavalier Rescue USA when our owner retired us from breeding.

We are learning the ropes at our foster home. We had not lived inside a house before. There are so many strange things in our lives now. Toys wow! We had no idea what they were for but being curious we made lots of discoveries. Our foster brother and sister have helped us tremendously. The thing that is called a doorbell rings sometimes and that means you bark. Dogs have beds! Who knew that? We learned they are comfy and you nap on them. We have settled in and are getting a routine down now.

At night we sleep in a crate snuggled up together. Foster Mom gets us up in the morning and outside we go to do our business. During the day we go out often for potty breaks. We like going for walks. Foster Mom has us wearing a harness on most of our walks and we walk well on a leash. We behave very well in the car. Mostly we like to snooze in the car on our rides.

We are extremely fascinated with the birds. We fixate on them and love to chase them. We also chase leaves flying through the air, squirrels and rabbits and cats, whatever will run. We will require a securely fenced in yard to keep us safe. We play together, growling and pushing each other about. Sometimes a tug of war with a toy is lots of fun too.

We have good appetites and are gaining some weight. Recently we went to see the veterinarian. We received vaccinations, micro chips, and we were spayed. Now we are looking for our forever home with someone to love and care for us. We like to snuggle up on your lap and be close to you. We have much love and many kisses to give! 

Foster mom says: Peaches and Abby both are a bit shy but have warmed up to us wonderfully. They are very loving and sweet and enjoying being close to you, preferably on your lap. They do not bark much unless they see something outside that requires a couple barks. They are doing very well with their house training. Peaches and Abby do not know how to ask to go outside for potty breaks. They can be left alone for a couples hours without any accidents. Peaches will eat all her food rapidly. I have been feeding them in their crates as Abby eats slowly. Since they had lived outside we are hoping for a person that may work from home or be retired that could be with them to help them continue adjusting to life inside a home. Peaches weighs 12 pounds and Abby weighs 15.

Mayah in Lebanon, IN

Update 2-17-24: Mayah is now doing very well on leash. The main thing to know about this sweet pup  is that she will need time, patience and love to warm to a new family. She has deep trust issues (well earned!) and is wary of people, but she comes out of her shell daily. She is just an ideal dog. She is quiet as a mouse except when her foster mom is making her breakfast and even then it’s just a lil happy growly-bark for 30 seconds. She’s finally starting to grab a toy every once in a while.  She is so deserving of love!

Mayah is about 6 years old, and is a beautiful Blenheim Cavalier, born about 6/2018. She came into care as a breeder surrender. Mayah has spent most of her life in a kennel having puppies, but she is learning to be part of a family!  

Since coming into foster, her personality has slowly but surely started to come out. Mayah is a very laid-back, calm girl. She loves, loves, loves her crate. She absolutely needs to have access to a crate in her new home. Her crate provides her with a sense of safety and comfort and calm. Mayah is working on spending more and more time hanging out with people or sleeping on the couch next to her foster dog friends. The activity of our home goes on around her and she exists happily within that. 

She has a lot of anxiety in situations outside our home. Mayah’s new family will need to be patient and understanding with her and understand that most of a “family” world is completely new to her. Everyday household things no longer stress her out, but sometimes sudden things still spook her.  

Mayah is more than happy to potty outside but is still working on how to alert us that she would like to go out. She had lived in an indoor/outdoor kennel, so she didn’t learn to alert people to her needs. She follows the other dogs out and happily potties outside but will occasionally have an accident if not given the opportunity to go out. Her new home will need to continue to reinforce positive potty habits, and have patience with her, as she is just realizing that the humans want to know to let her out!  

While Mayah has a lot of anxiety, you simply could not ask for a sweeter dog. She is quiet and calm all the time, rarely barks or whines at all, gets along well with our other dogs. We have hardly heard a peep from her. She is patient with all things, even things she does not enjoy. She is literally SUCH a good girl. Everyone who meets her develops a soft spot for her. The desire to give Mayah everything she’s missed out on is so strong. She has developed an adorable wiggle-dance to express her happiness, especially in the morning when we wake up.  

Mayah doesn’t seem to care to run off but would be best in a fenced yard or with someone able to stay out with her when pottying. Mayah has done very well with children and other dogs, but we do not know about cats. She is extremely non-reactive to pretty much everything.  

The vet has given her a glowing report.  She is at a healthy weight at 18 lbs and her heart sounds great. Mayah recently had her teeth cleaned and had 9 teeth removed. She will need to have dental care going forward with teeth brushing and dental treats to keep her pearly whites shining. 

She would be a perfect companion for someone who works from home and would like a friend to sit with them. She’ll also do best in a home that has another dog.
