Lady in San Jose, CA

Hi, I’m Lady, an exuberant 1 year old playful little Blenheim Cavalier. While I do enjoy snuggles, my favorite thing to do is play with anyone that is willing and available. I haven’t yet learned to fetch balls or tug on toys but I play a lot with my foster siblings, including a dog savvy cat. I also love chew toys of all sorts and can often be found happily chewing on an antler, bone, or other chew toy. I would love to have a playmate that’s willing to play with me, so my ideal home has another small, young dog in it that loves to play too! I’d also do best with someone who is home most of the time, so I can get a lot of potty breaks and walks! I’m good with new people and while I may be a little shy at first, it doesn’t take long for me to warm up and ask for attention and playtime.  

When I came to my foster home I was a very sick puppy and had just finished treatment for kennel cough and pneumonia. I had to be isolated because I had a hacking cough that seemed to last forever and a bad case of worms and parasites. After several rounds of tests and treatments my cough and my fecal tested clean and I had my spay surgery too! Yay! While I appear to be perfectly healthy now, there is a chance that I will be more susceptible to respiratory illnesses in the future, so the vet recommends regular immunization shots.

I absolutely LOVE to go on walks. My foster mom takes me out for a walk nearly every day for about an hour, but I think she just wants to wear me out so I’ll snuggle. One hour is usually enough walking, but I’d be happy with going out more often or for longer, I’ve still got a lot of puppy energy. I like to pull at the leash and run around checking out smells at first, but I am learning slowly how to behave on a leash, I do calm down after a while. 

Since I am a puppy I’m still a little naughty. If something moves quickly or runs I may bark and chase it. This includes outdoor cats, lizards, squirrels, and birds, bugs, you know how it goes.

I’m generally good with both my crate training and my house training. I sleep in my crate overnight and don’t have issues as long as I potty before bed and immediately when I get up. I do go outside when asked to and will do my business, provided I don’t get distracted.  I haven’t yet learned to ask to go outside, so I may have accidents, especially at first because I am still learning. I also have a small issue with submissive peeing when playing, especially if my playmate is too rough or scares me. If I’m put outside at regular intervals I rarely have issues though. 

I’m learning basic commands. I’ve got ‘sit down’ pretty well, but I still struggle with ‘stay’ and ‘come’. It’s so hard to stay still, everything is so exciting and it’s really hard to ‘come’ when there are so many interesting things to explore. I am looking for a home where I can continue my training with positive reinforcement and gentle, patient interactions while I figure it out.  

When I finally wind down I’m a precious little bundle of cuddles and I’ll even let you hold me upside down like a baby. If my humans aren’t available for snuggles, I find a place to curl up in as near as possible.  My favorite spots are usually places I jump up to, like a chair or couch. If I’m not allowed on your furniture, then I’m not a good fit for you. I like to snuggle with my foster siblings (if they’ll let me), even my cat playmate. I’ve actually figured out how to carefully curl up with him in our favorite chair without waking him up. Because I’m so good at jumping, a secure yard and fence is necessary.

     

If I sound like just the right Cavalier for you please let us know by completing an online application (if you haven’t already) and then contacting Jessica Ford smalldogbath@gmail.com. I’m looking forward to finding my forever family.

Barkley in Little Rock, AR

Barkley’s journey to our rescue wasn’t due to abandonment but rather a loving transition from one home to another. His previous owners entrusted him to us to ensure he finds his perfect forever family.

Barkley arrived with a luxurious full coat, unfortunately severely matted, which required a haircut. But don’t worry, his coat will grow back, and in the meantime, he maintains his charm and charisma!

Barkley embodies canine relaxation and charm. With his gentle demeanor and endearing personality, he effortlessly steals hearts wherever he goes. He enjoys indulging in luxurious naps, leisurely strolls, and joyous car rides, reveling in life’s simple pleasures.

At ten pounds overweight, Barkley may have a bit of extra fluff, but it only adds to his cuddly charm. Despite this, his spirit remains undeterred, and he eagerly engages in play and exploration with enthusiasm.

Barkley is impeccably house-trained and prefers to keep all four paws firmly on the ground, abstaining from furniture-bound adventures. His laid-back nature and well-mannered disposition make him a joy to be around.

Barkley thrives in the company of adults and older children, radiating infectious positivity to all fortunate enough to cross his path. He has shown some food aggression and jealousy towards other pets so we think it is best that he is an only dog.

Barkley seeks a forever home that mirrors his laid-back disposition, with a family who appreciates the art of relaxation yet embraces occasional adventures. If you’re looking for a devoted friend whose unwavering loyalty and affectionate nature will enrich your life, Barkley is the perfect match for you.

If you can provide Barkley with the perfect home, please complete our online application, if you haven’t already done so, and then email Whitney Barron wbarronp@gmail.com and let her know of your interest. Only applicants within driving distance to Little Rock will be considered.
