I am new to the user group! I have a Cavalier King Charles named Maddie. She is almost 2 year's old and absolutely adorable!!! She is tiny and sometimes I wonder if I picked the runt of the litter without knowing it. She is only 12 lbs. Does anyone else have a small Cavalier? If so, how do they do when it comes to eating? How many times a day to feed them? Thanks!

She is adorable and sure is small! Just wanted to say welcome! Do you have any close up pictures? I never get sick of looking at photo's of these cutie-pies.

Sorry I can't answer your question. My dog is 17 lbs. at 9 months so I assume he's going to continue to grow. My niece's Cav was also the runt and is small and she named her Madision, nickname "Maddie"! But her Maddie is the same age as my Charley and weighs 10lbs. But she's always been much smaller than Charley.

FYI, we feed Charley adult food (less calories the vet said) 1/2 cup in AM, 1/2 cup in PM. Dry food. Actually it's 1/2 puppy food and 1/2 adult food. We haven't graduated to total adult food yet.

Welcome!!! Maddie is darling!!!

My Maddy is 5 months old on Tuesday and she is only 6 pounds.
I think she too will be no more than 12 pounds.
She is very petite and delicate.
So, hello from one Maddy to another! Welcome.

Hello! Maddie is just adorable. My Bella is also a "petite" cavalier. She will be 2 in May and weighs 13 pounds (and I think a pound of that may be her winter coat!) Everyone that meets her thinks she is still a puppy! I feed her 3/4 cup once a day, but she generally takes her time eating it throughout the day. She was a picky eater as a puppy, but since she has graduated to adult food, she has done much better.

Hi, I can say the weight of my cavs only in kilos too. Brian´s weight is 10,5 kg, he is the big boy, but Reny´s weight is 9 kilos and I don´t think, he is too big. He competes in agility in the small class, his high is 34 cm, I mean he is accuratly, not small, not too big:-)

Hi and welcome, Maddie is just gorgeous ! My two weigh 9 and 1/2 and 7 and 1/2 kilo's . They look around the same size but Gus is quite heavy boned and Pippin is very light and has a small puppy like face, so people always think he is a pup. Gus is five and Pippin is almost three.

Welcome, Welcome!!! Little Maddie is precious!! I don't know for sure yet, because I havent seen my Zoey in person yet (she is coming to me on a plane on Sat. :lol: ) But my little B&T is supposedly going to be quite small according to the breeder. Her pictures make her look itty bitty and she is 12 weeks old. It will be a nice change from my 22 lb boys!! :D

My mother in law has a cavie that barely breaks 11 pounds.
