Yes pics please Brid!!

I can now tell the true story behind this dog... :lol:

This B&T was in the pound all last week and I had my name on him for rescue. The problem is that I can only get the poundies if no one books them for rehoming or they aren't reclaimed. Usually cavaliers will be booked befaore they are ever released to rescue, and I always worry they will end up somewhere bad...:shifty:

Sallymum indicated an interest in him but was unable to book over the phone and she lives a long ways from this pound. Brid very kindly responded to a request for someone to see if they could help out. This poor man did a full seven days in the pound in an outdoor kennel :( . I bet he was thrilled to get out.

Other rescue folks did put up posters in the area where he was found and notices at area vets but there was no response. So people did their best to find the owners but now he is out and happy in his new home. :flwr: Thanks to all involved. :)

That is for sure!!! He was matted a fair bit. He smelt of yucky dog pound when he came first and now he smells of johnsons!!!

17th July 2007, 12:00 AM
Ahhh! He is handsome!;)
Lucky him! Lucky YOU!:rah:

17th July 2007, 08:27 AM
Congrats, he's beautiful. As for a name, he looks like a 'Shadow' to me :)

17th July 2007, 08:47 AM
Wow, he looks great, well done :)

17th July 2007, 08:57 AM
he is lovely, congrats sallymum he looks beaituful!

Had him at vet last night not all great news. Has a slight heart murmer which isnt really unexpected been a cav, probly from a BYB. His coat which looks ok at the front is not to great at the back and underneath all scaby the vet is hoping its not mange,gave him an injection. Apart from that he is very healthy also been nuerered. Still havent decided on a name.

17th July 2007, 09:58 AM
Wasn't online last night so missed this little man!! Well done to all of you for getting him out of there! As for names, well I adore Logan (But am very biased on that!) others I think might suit him are Comet or Chad?? Again very biased for Chad as that was the name of my first show boy, Logan is his gt, grandson!!

Hope you can get his skin condition under control and that it isn't mange!! And no, you can't stop until you have all four colours!! :lol:

17th July 2007, 10:04 AM
Yeah i actually like Logan, that is one i will consider. Chad no it reminds me to much of a Chief where i used to work. Hopefully he skin will be fine he is such a sweet gentle guy, someone must of cared for him at some stage, he seems to be house trainned, walks great on a lead. The only thing at the moment i can see is that his not to sure on cats but we can work on that.

17th July 2007, 10:05 AM
sorry to hear that he may have a heart murmer, let me know how it goes the poor boy!

17th July 2007, 10:15 AM
Like the vet said last night they have a saying that goes a heart in a cav that is right is the wrong heart.

17th July 2007, 10:43 AM
This is def. it. No more(apart from the odd foster)

Mwuhuhuhu... famous last words! I said that once & ended up with 8.

:rah: Hey congratulations! :rah:

17th July 2007, 11:24 AM
Yeah I said two. icon_whistling

Well when I was at the cardiologists having some of mine checked out they actually told me that Cavaliers have a naturally larger heart than most breeds! My reply?

"They need a larger heart to store all that love in!!" :lotsaluv:

My Cardiologists reply to that?

"I couldn't agree with you more!" :lotsaluv:

Cathryn that is the cutest thing I ever heard and sooo true!:D :lotsaluv:

17th July 2007, 12:44 PM
That is so true, they are the most lovable dogs ever! I cant get my head around how anyone could mistreat or abuse one, its just sick!!

17th July 2007, 01:30 PM
So true. I cant understand why. This little lad is so good, had him out in the car today for a trip to the shop he loved it. The only reason so far i can see wrong with him is his skin, but that is fixable. In a couple of days when he is more settled i will be getting him chipped at least he was already nuerered so at least thats one good thing.
Still havent thought of a name for him so keep the suggestions coming in. So far i like Murphy,and Logan.

17th July 2007, 01:34 PM
He might have belonged to an elderly person who didn't notice the poor skin -- they are also the group least likely to know to go looking at the pound for a dog (and Dunboyne is in Co Meath but takes only Dublin dogs... and Meath doesn't even have a pound, the county simply puts down all dogs!! Irish folks might wish to get involved in a campaign on this issue; see www.anvilireland.ie).

At least someone cared enough to have him neutered which is good. I can always allow for some elderly folks being accidentally neglectful as there can be sight issues and they may not have the dog close enough to them to really notice its problems, but anyone else should have had the poor fellow in.

Let us know what the verdict is on his skin. A low grade murmur often is something that remains low grade all the dog's life so we'll hope that if he does indeed have a murmur, that will be the case. :flwr:
