Do you mean Cavalier King Charles or King Charles, as these are different breeds with, usually, very different temperaments ?

i mean a cavalier,do you know anyone looking to re-home one?

can i just add please when you buy a puppy its IMPORTANT that he-she is KC reg ..just because your going to spay you still want your pup to be well bred and recognised by the KC from a reputable breeder
also BOTH parents should have clear heart and eye certificates

As someone who rescues dogs i'm sure you're only too well aware of the benefits of adopting an older rescue ;)

all the dogs ive rescued are one year or less,i foster them untill they get homes,ive never thought of an older dog as i have a 3 year old son,but if i knew of the dogs background it wouldnt be a problem

yeah..i rang a man about a bichon pup the littler wasnt registered because he registered a littler the month before(2 saparate bitches) he had 2 males and 8 bitches,i dont understand it to be honest,i do want a healthy pup no doubt about that!

Leonie he is lying to you. That is total nonsense.

From your post, to be honest it sounds like you have a lot of research ahead of you still before commiting to a puppy as both these breeds have some serious health issues so finding a reputable show breeder is very important, not just a breeder in the small ads (avoid ANY breeder listing in the snall ads or on Irish dog websites). I recommend you start by reading the sections on getting a cavalier in the Library section here and also abut finding a puppy in Ireland on my rescue website, www.ckcserescue.com.

Please note I do not all public discussions on specific breeders so people will need to email you privately if they wish to offer recommendations. We do not have any informaion on poms here -- so talk to the breed club secretary for this breed.

I think you will want to do a lot of research still before making a commitment on a puppy. You need to research all the health issues of each breed and kow what health certs to ask the breeder to see before even remotely considering taking a puppy. You also need to learn about backyard breeders and puppy mills -- I have info on this in the Library on finding a good breeder, in the Puppy Mill section at the very bottom of this website, and also on my rescue page. You should only be talking to breeders given to you by the club secretaries of both those breed clubs -- contact the Irish Kennel Club (I think you are in Ireland if I recall).

Finding a healthy puppy and knowing what you are looking for takes a LOT of advance research as I am sure you must realise if you have been involved at all in rescue and the waiting time from a good breeder is typically 6-12 months in Ireland.
