Description of Puppy
This pup was born and raised in our home and is used to all the sounds and activities of a busy family home. He's been handled and bonded with people from Day 1 and is eager to take on the world in a game or snuggle to watch a movie. Contact us for more information, we'd love to hear from you! He is current on his "puppy shots",routine worming, and paper trained.
For centuries, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (a namesake of King Charles II of Britain) has been recorded in paintings and tapestries together with their aristocratic families. Their coat requires weekly brushing, but no trimming. The breed is adaptable in their need for exercise, happy with either sleeping on the couch or taking long walks. They are highly affectionate, and some have called Cavaliers "the ultimate lap dog" or the "love sponge" of dogs. Most dogs of the breed are playful, extremely patient and eager to please. Some Cavaliers have been known to exhibit traits in common with cats, such as perching in high places (the tops of couches, the highest pillow, etc), cleaning their own paws and can also show some birding qualities. They can be regarded as trustworthy companions that thrive on attention. They are not considered to have strong guard dog instincts, nor are they "yappy". They are eager to please and train easily. A small amount of year round shedding can be expected. BE AWARE THAT ALL CAVALIER/CAVALIER CROSSES ARE PRONE TO A HEREDITARY MITRAL VALVE DISEASE. Late onset of this problem generally does not affect quality of life, however early onset can be fatal. All of our breeding stock are regularly tested by a canine cardiologist and our contract includes a health guarantee. Cavaliers can also suffer from cataracts, spinal problems and "loose" kneecaps if poorly bred.
