Katie in Dallas, TX

Here is Katie with her new mom…

Katie is a sweet and loving 11-year-old Blenheim girl with such a gentle little soul. She is a little shy at first, but then warms right up and is such a sweetheart. She is a happy girl who always has a wagging tail. You would never guess she is eleven years old when meeting her. She is such a pretty girl and gets around great.

Katie came into rescue because her owner is now in hospice. Katie is at her ideal weight at 16.7 pounds. She loves food and gets so excited for meal and treat time. Her whole body wiggles in excitement.  She is up to date on all vaccinations, on heartworm preventative, microchipped, and just had a dental exam.

She has a grade B2 heart murmur, but has no symptoms. She is on heart medication and will need her heart monitored and meds adjusted as she ages. Katie is hard of hearing, but her foster mom uses hand signals to help communicate and she does very well.

She is perfectly potty trained. When you take her outside she will immediately do her business. She has had zero accidents while at her foster mom’s house.  She is your typical velcro Cavalier. She will follow you when you move throughout the house. Once you sit down she would like to sit with you, or will happily lay in a comfy dog bed. She is such an easy and calm girl.

Katie loves taking short walks in the neighborhood. She also is good for car rides. She really enjoys wandering around in a fenced in yard and would like someone who is at home most of the time. She will give you a nudge with her paw when she wants a pet. She gets along well with other gentle dogs, or could be an only dog. She would prefer a home with calmer dogs versus energetic young ones. She enjoys a crate and sleeps perfectly in it at night.

If you think you can love and provide all the things Katie needs, please complete our application and then email Shelby Fields at shelbynfields@gmail.com to express your interest.

Robbie in Mechanicsburg, PA

Here is Robbie with his new family…

Handsome Robbie has traveled a long and winding road up to this stage in his life. He was well loved by his first owner but unfortunately, they passed away. A member of the family had him for a while but wanted to give Robbie a better life and gave him to rescue. 

Robbie is a perfect gentleman. His house manners are impeccable. He’s a “go with the flow” kind guy and luckily is very adaptable. He has a long list of loves: people, food, stuffed toys, chasing birds, sniffing the yard, treats, car rides and walks. Lately he has been laying on the back of the couch, facing the window so that he can be sure there’s nothing suspicious going on in the neighborhood.

Robbie is 7 years old. Robbie is 24 pounds, which is a good weight for him since he’s tall. He also has a beautiful coat with dark chestnut markings. Robbie’s health is excellent. He has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date on his vaccinations.

The perfect home for Robbie would be one where someone is home most of the day. He is totally devoted to his people and can be found no more than 2 feet away at all times. He is enjoying the company of his Cavalier foster siblings, but could also do well as an only dog as long as there is someone home most of the day. Someone willing to play with him is a bonus. He loves to chase his squeaky toys.

He is also always ready to go for a car ride. He has been to his foster mom’s beauty salon, greeter at her church and the local garden supply store. When meeting new people he will sit nicely and wait to be approached. There’s no doubt about it, Robbie is a perfect dog ♥.

If you think you would be a good match for this wonderful Cavalier, and you are within a reasonable driving distance of Mechanicsburg, PA please submit an application. Then, kindly reach out to Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com) and asked to be considered as Robbie’s new family.

Poet in Washington, DC

Here is Poet with her new family…

Meet Poet, a sweet and extremely cuddly Blenheim Cavalier who will be 3 years old some time in December. Due to personal health reasons and an upcoming change in living circumstances, Poet’s previous owner made the difficult decision to ask Cavalier Rescue USA to help Poet find a new forever home. This sweet girl is more than deserving!

Poet is by and large a calm, affectionate dog who loves nothing more than taking a long snooze in your lap – she will sit there all day long if given the opportunity, getting up only when you do and following closely behind. She can be playful with the occasional burst of energy but is all around pretty laid back despite her young age. 

Poet is very food motivated — interested in both kibble/treats and your dinner! It’s important to make sure human food is kept out of reach. Poet is good on the leash for a dog with limited prior exposure to leash-walking.

Poet is in perfect health with no known health conditions. She is 18.5 lbs., microchipped, spayed, and up to date on all of her vaccines.

While Poet spent her first few years in a house with a large, fenced-in yard, she’s been adjusting to city/apartment living – though would still be happiest with space to romp around and no elevator between her and the bathroom. Her new family will need to work with her on signaling when she needs to go potty to avoid accidents. Poet could also benefit from some training on basic commands and demonstrates mild reactivity to unexpected noises. She tends to get scared easily and has started to bark more frequently since settling into her foster home.

Poet gets along well with her foster brother, a male Cavapoo around the same age/size. She can be timid around bigger dogs. She would do well in a home with another friendly dog of small or moderate size or as a single pup. She tends to be on the submissive side and easily startled, so a home with very young kids wouldn’t be a good fit, but she’d be fine with older, gentler children.

Poet is a quintessential Velcro-dog and is most comfortable and at peace when she’s snuggled up with a human. Her ideal home would be with an owner who works from home, is home the majority of the time, or an active retiree. Poet’s temperament is also perfectly suited to be an office pup – for those with enviable dog-friendly office arrangements! She appears to suffer from some separation anxiety when left alone that could benefit from professional guidance if it becomes a recurring issue – and same with crate training. Needless to say, Poet is quick to bond with humans and loves to stay close to her pack.

If you think you’re the perfect fit for Poet and within driving distance to Washington, D.C., please complete the below application, and email our DC Rescue Coordinator Michelle Ouellette at cavalierrescueusadmv@gmail.com, so she knows to check out your application.

Jenna in Cinnaminson, NJ

Here is Jenna with her new family…

Jenna is a sweet, gentle and calm 6-year-old Blenheim girl who came into rescue after being retired as a breeding dog. Over the last few months while in foster care, she has become more comfortable and gained confidence, and will continue to blossom in her forever home with the right loving and gentle care. Jenna is a friendly dog, but reserved. She’s been fostered with another small, gentle dog and has had Cavalier playdates, and done great with all other dogs she meets. She also met a cat in a friend’s home and was fine with it.

While with her foster family, Jenna was spayed and had a complete dental. While she lost all of her teeth (hence the tongue out) she is still able to eat and enjoy her kibble. She isn’t particularly food motivated, but does enjoy peanut butter bones, though it takes her a while to eat them. 

Jenna, who is 17 lbs., is up-to-date on all vaccines and monthly preventatives and is microchipped. She has a grade 4 heart murmur, but the cardiologist said that she is asymptomatic and does not need any medication at this time. She is not deaf but is hearing impaired, and so will need someone who can work on hand signals. A fenced yard is preferred, though she would be quite happy for someone to walk her on leash several times a day. 

Jenna is docile and sweet and loves to have her ears scratched. She walks well on a leash and doesn’t pull and is housetrained as long as her new family watches for her signals. At bedtime, she will go into her crate to sleep, but would much prefer to sleep in the big bed with her humans. She doesn’t always like when her humans leave the house and can scratch, but will eventually settle in her crate.

Jenna would do best in an adult-only home with another young and gentle dog who could bring out her playfulness. 

If you are interested in welcoming this sweet girl into your home, please complete the online application if you haven’t already and then contact NJ Coordinator Rebecca Plimpton at beckplimpton@gmail.com to indicate your interest.

Benny in North Bend, WA

Here’s a picture of Benny with his new family…

Hi, my name is Benjamin, but you can call me Benny! 

I am a curious, energetic, very spunky 1-year-old pup, and let me tell you, I am a lot of fun in such a small package! I came to Cavalier Rescue USA because my previous owner came under some health issues, so they made the difficult choice to surrender me to rescue. I’m looking forward to meeting my new furever family!

I’m just a little guy, weighing in at around 13.5 pounds, but don’t let my size fool you, I have a big personality and all the energy to back that up! I am an outgoing little pup and I love meeting new people and getting all the pets from them, so I think I would do just fine in a family where there are gentle children over 5 years old to play with. Or, I would love to be with an active family that will take me for all the walks and adventures. I think walks are a lot of fun, and I do pretty well on the leash, but sometimes I get easily distracted by cool smells and sights. My foster mom thinks that maybe one day I’ll make a great little hiking buddy because I have so much energy! 

My foster family would perfectly describe me as a busy little guy. I’m always on the go, I love to follow you around and see what you’re up to, and I love exploring! My foster family would like to warn you, I’m sort of an escape artist with doors, so a very secure fenced yard is necessary to keep me safe. The world is just so big, and I want to see what it’s all about!

I love, love, LOVE toys and making my own games! My foster family has two very full toy baskets and I love pulling out all the toys and finding the best ones (hint: if it’s a ball it’ll be my favorite), so I hope to be spoiled with many toys to occupy me. Otherwise, I might get into some mischief because I’m a puppy. I also need a family that can spend a lot of time with me and keep me engaged. 

In my foster home, I have two fellow canine companions, which I get along well with, but I’m still working on my manners with other dogs. I’m a good boy, I just have so much puppy energy and want to play so much, and I guess other dogs don’t appreciate that sometimes. However, I am starting to pick up on the queues from the other dogs and I’m doing quite well with them! But at first I mounted the other pups a lot. A patient, future dog sibling would be most ideal since I’m still so young and learning. I don’t really know how I would do with cats, but my foster family feels it probably wouldn’t go too well, unfortunately.  

I am a very healthy pup though and everything checks out! My ears, joints, heart, and eyes are all clear. Speaking of my eyes, I do have quite a bit of tear staining. My foster mom has been using special wipes and powder daily on my tear staining and it seems to be helping out. I have unique markings (they call my markings “clown face”), so it would be fantastic if the world could see how handsome I am without all this tear staining! 

Being that I am still a puppy, I am still working on my potty training. I get it for the most part and frequent trips outside are helpful. I also do very well in the kennel at night and when you leave the house. I was also recently neutered during my stay in rescue, and all my vaccines are up to date, so I’m ready to go! 

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me! If you think that I would be the perfect fit for your family and you live within a 3-hour drive of North Bend, please let Melissa Cincotta know by emailing happycavaliers04@gmail.com. Please complete an online application, if you haven’t done so previously, and take a moment to read about our adoption process at these links: FAQ & Process.  Online Application

Scooter in Greensboro, NC

Here is the pup with his new family…

Scooter is a very sweet three-year-old Blenheim Cavalier mix who came into Cavalier Rescue USA from a local animal shelter. He was surrendered by his owner due to his skin issues, which the owner stated they were unable to care for.

Scooter is a happy, laidback guy who loves everyone; two legged and four legged. He gets so excited when someone comes to visit. He will dance around happily barking for you to love on him. If you want a shadow, he is your guy! He is housebroken if taken outside regularly, or will go in and out a doggie door if one is available. He loves to venture out into the fenced back yard to smell all of the wonderful scents scattered all over by his foster siblings, birds, squirrels and whatever else has the nerve to venture in. His tail never stops wagging! He loves to snuggle up against his foster Mom for some one-on-one loving, or will lay quietly next to his canine foster siblings for a good nap. He enjoys a good bath, and will lie still while you dry him with a dryer. This boy never complains about anything you do for him.

Scooter does sleep in a crate at night and will let you know when he needs to go out to potty. He would love to sleep in the big bed with his new humans, if allowed.

Scooter does need other dogs to be with when you leave the house. He did have some separation anxiety when he came into rescue, but his foster Mom leaves music on and leaves him with his foster fur siblings when she leaves to run errands. This has helped tremendously!

Scooter loves to play fetch and tug of war! He would play day and night if you let him. It is his favorite thing to do besides laying right next to his foster Mom.

Scooter really enjoys feeding time. He knows exactly where his food bowl goes and will dance around happily barking until you put his bowl down. He is a very fast eater so he is eating from a slow feeder bowl. He recently had a dental where he lost one tooth that was getting abscessed.

Per the owner’s surrendered form, Scooter is less than four years old. His foster Mom says he acts younger. When he arrived in foster care, his skin was in rough shape and he had lost a lot of fur. His foster Mom has worked hard with her veterinarian to get Scooter’s skin and fur healthy. Due to his skin allergies Scooter is on a one protein food that is fish based. He is on a daily prescription medication to keep him from chewing his skin. His skin has now cleared up completely. Scooter does still have a slight ear infection in his left ear that is still getting treated. The veterinarian believes it will be cleared up with the latest long-acting ear drops. He has also recently had a dental while in foster care.

Scooter walks well on a leash and he absolutely loves car rides. He has not been around children or cats since he has been in foster care, but his foster Mom believes he will do fine around them based on his personality and love of people.

Scooter is heartworm free and is on monthly heartworm prevention.

Because of Scooter’s separation anxiety, he needs to go to a home with another like-sized canine companion, with an owner that is home most of the day. He also needs a fenced yard so he can continue to run and explore the outdoors.

If you meet the criteria for Scooter and live within a reasonable driving distance to Greensboro, NC, please complete our online application if you haven’t already. Then, be sure to contact Angie Hansing at nccavalierrescuemom@gmail.com and let her know of your interest.
