I accidentally deleted the full thread -- meant to just delete the majority of posts to retain as much anonymity as possible.

This dog is hopefully now getting sorted. May need to be collected this evening though -- we are waiting to see.

Please no one else ring regarding her though. In situations like this, if people want to work together to try to sort a dog, arrange for ONE person to ring as otherwise the price goes up and it is less likely we can get the dog. :thmbsup: I know lots want to help but the best way is to make a plan and for there to be a single person ringing as if they wish to get the dog. I can almost always help out -- and if someone wants to see if I can, post to the board for so eone to give my number to you as several people have my mobile. :)

She is out and SAFE!
:mexwav:
One less puppy farm cavalier now; she'll be off to a new life before long. :). Not accustomed to people, not housetrained as she has lived in a shed, and a bit frightened so she will take some work.

STELLAR work by all involved, in particular Sallymum, Justine and Coconut who pulled together the final details and travel and fostering arrangements. Many thanks to one VERY GENEROUS donor who paid for her to come out but wishes to be anonymous. :flwr:

It doesn't take a big organisation to make a difference; there is a LOT of power and capability within every individual!

Tess as she is called is a very scared little lady. I have her in a quite room at the moment to let her relax as the poor thing is a bag of nerves. By the way she is behaving towards everything id say she has never done anything in her short little life but been stuck in a shed, prob never seen anyone, apart from her lovely owner id say who probaly fed and watered her, not much else and have pups
Im no expert on dogs ages but to me she doesnt look 4 more like 2-3
this might be her first night in a house but as for her meal she wont even look at it or her water, i have left them with her hopfully she will go to them during the night if she is hungry.
I havent let her and my lot together as when she seen them when she came in first she started trembling. There will be time enough for them to meet when she settles hopefully.

coconut
12th May 2007, 12:02 PM
sallymum i think u are right about her age she doesn't look to old at all! when i got home and was looking at fred was is 8 months and is always very active, i thought about what u said about her being thin and she is near the same as him how is that as all she did was spend time in the shed!!

Karlin i will pm u later trying to get my BELOVED to give me his laptop to use as he has the computer connected to the big telly and it kills my eyes!!

Sallymum's tahnks again for taking her in, if u need anything u know where i am :-)

What a lovely girl. She's going to make someone very happy. Let's hope the other dogs are as lucky as she.

What a change in a couple of hrs.Megan as my kids are now calling her is walking around, eating playing with the other dogs, she has let me bath her and is even walking on a lead. Amazing what a couple of hrs can do.

Oh bless her! That is so good to hear, she looks a very loving little girl and I am sure she will come out of her shell even more over the next few days of loving care. I am glad there is a good outcome for this little girl, she is one of the lucky one's!!

Basically a puppy farmer was selling a small number of dogs and one was cavalier. People here in Ireland rallied to pay to get her and transport her to foster so she is now out and will be rehomed once we've had a chance to spay her and work to make her less fearful and also hopefully ge her housetrained.

She is actually only about 2.5 to 3, the former owner *thinks*. Problem is it is very hard to tell as no real records exist and dogs can look both much older and much younger than they are. With cavaliers because of their puppy-like looks and playfulness, people often guess they are much younger than they actually are (I regularly have new owners insist their new dog must be younger than I have said but in many cases I have the papers to prove they are the age they are -- people just tend to think this breed is younger than it is). It is hard to guess an age as you are going mainly by teeth but that's always just a best guess unless the dog is quite young.

Well I finally met this girl today. Sallymum fostered her through her spay but it was time for her to go to Tara as she is a bit growly and can be snappy at the moment; she is very scared and anxious in new situations and can be around some people in specific; who knows how she makes such decisions but she does.

Coconut brought her to me and I drove her to TKC; all safely crated as she was quite nervous about all this transport and new people business. Tara brought her into the house, then we opened the crate door to let her come out in her own time while we made some tea. She crept out after a little bit, tail between legs, and it is clear she has been heavily and recently used for breeding; her nipples are huge.

Tara is pretty amazing; within a very short time she had her coming over to be pet and handled and eventually she took some chicken from her hand and after that Tara was her new best friend. :lol: She was eventually able to lift her onto her lap while we talked and she settled in quite happily, not nervous at all.

She also really liked Jaspar; frankly, she was a bit of a tart as she's still a bit in heat, probably -- she was spayed during her heat (normally this would not be done, but we were afraid she could be pregnant from running with other dogs). Jaspar was friendly but found her a bit of a pest a few times! They are just about the same size and both blenheims made a nice matching pair running around. She liked running out back on the lawn and sat in the sunshine for a while.

Tara thinks she will settle very quickly; she just needs to learn to trust people more. A dog for an adult home however and ideally with another dog companion. She will be really pretty too once her coat comes back in. :)

20th May 2007, 12:25 PM
that is great to hear karlin, i am glad that she settle after awhile, i think she was not use to all the travelling in cars and i really think she just did not like me looking in at her she seems to be the type that wants to come to u off her own back and i am just thankful that she is with tara now and getting the training she needs!!!

PS jaspar is a really handsome fella, it was lovely to finaly meet u both!!

For anyone interested, Tara has started a thread on this dog, 'Megan', in the breed rescue section -- with a pic of her sitting outside in the sun. We will update as she gets ready for a new home. :)

Some new pics added by Tara on the other thread but for anyone not following that one, thought I'd add this one here; she looks so relaxed. Freedom in the sunshine!
