View Full Version : Hello from Em and Equinox

13th April 2008, 06:09 PM
Hi all, I am Emma, live in Wilts UK. We have recently welcomed a most beautiful new member into our family. A Cavalier called Equinox (Nox for short) . He is 14 months old, and is Black and Tan. Despite us being his third (at least) home he is the most amenable fellow :) I have a feeling that we have not been told his full history, as some of his behaviour doesn't match with the history we have, but he is still a fantastic dog!!

Although an experienced dog owner and handler this is my first Cavalier, so thought it would be good to make contact with other owners, so we can be aware of any potential issues and get to know this lovely breed better!

As I have said he is a fantastic dog, though tends to get very overexcited when he sees other dogs, barking and shrieking at them, though a firm 'NO' does reduce it to an excited whimper hehe. He is good on the lead and in the house. We were told he couldn't be left but have found leaving the TV on in the lunge has so far prevented him barking. We were also told he would not sleep alone, but two nights of leaving him in the kitchen in his bed, and firmly telling him No when he barked seems to have done the trick!!

Hope thats ok as an intro, if it works will post a pic of Nox as well :D

Oh he is really handsome. He and you are both lucky to have found each other. I'm sure with patience and love he will be fine. Its a pity he has been passed from pillar to post up until now. Poor little fellow.:luv:

What a beautiful boy... He looks small. How much does he weigh? I am so glad he found his way to your home. Sounds like he really needs some loving. Welcome. Judy and Dixie

Your little Nox is absolutely adorable! I can't even imagine the other two homes giving him up. Isn't that a bit odd for this breed at this young age? Is he a rescue that was improperly placed the first two times? Glad he now has his forever home with you and you are managing well!
