View Full Version : 2 year old cavalier wanted

6th December 2007, 01:52 PM
My Dad And Mom Are Disabled. My Dad Is Confined To Bed. He Does Not Have Any Mussel Control And Cain't Speak. His Mind Is Still Good. My Mom Cares For Him, But She Can't Get Around Very Well. My Dad Had A Boston Terrier That Passed Away A Few Weeks Ago With A Bad Heart Valve. Since His Terrier Passed Away He Has Pretty Much Given Up. My Dads Doctor Has Told Us Everything Is Down Hill For My Dad And Has Recomended That We Get Him Another Dog To At Lease Give Him Some Pleasure. I Have Been Searching For Dogs And It Looks As Though A Cavalier Would Be Good For Him. We Have Shown Him Pictures And He Seems To Want One Very Much. My Problem Is I Would Like To Find One That Has Outgrown The Puppy Stage And Is House Broken. Also, The Priceing Of The Cavaliers Are More Than I Can Spend At This Time, Although I Am Sure They Are Worth The Price. Would Any Readers Of This Please Give Me Some Advice As To It This Would Be A Good Dog For My Dad And If They Know Where I Could Find What I Need. The Boston Terrier Would Lay With My Dad And When We Could Set My Dad In A Chair He Would Lay In His Lap. My Mom Would Give Another Dog A Very Rewarding Home.
Thanks For Any Help.

Hiya Martin -

That's a very sweet story you tell of your father. My Kosmo is a therapy dog and it seems as if cavaliers are naturals ;)

Where do you reside? ;)

Martin: There may be some breeders who need to re-home a dog they had in their breeding program who may have something that will work for you. I would go the the breeder referral lists at both the ACKCSC (http://www.ackcsc.org/ (http://www.ackcsc.org/)) and the CKCS Club (http://www.ckcsc.org/), call breeders in your area and ask if they know of any dog that may work for you and your Mom and Dad. I would also contact the rescue groups with both of the clubs, the information will be on their websites, and Lucky Star Cavalier Rescue (http://www.luckystarcavalierrescue.org/). Frequently, finding the right match may take some time, but you may get lucky. Hope something works out and gives your Dad comfort and peace.

I Have Called Charlotte. Thanks For Your Help! I Think This Breed Would Be Very Good For My Parents, But It Looks As Though I May Have To Find Something Else.
