My sister knows someone on her work round who has a cavalier, they keep it in a cage all day & say they hate it & want it gone.
they say its too flighty but thats not suprising since its never let out.

They are asking 150 for it So we arn't sure what to do. we dont really like buying rescue dogs but this little chap sounds very sad & unloved ....

:( That's so sad. If they don't want it I wonder why they want to charge for it? Someone should definitely rescue this poor dog, it sounds like it's living a miserable life...

they payed quite a bit for it not long ago & are too greedy to give it away. I think its only 8 or 9 months old.
they had a westie before & this poor cav can do no right in comparisson to their perfect one

I'm sure if you or your friend were to buy it, it would be quickly re-homed via a site like this if you explained the circumstances, as you can pay that much for dog from a rescue. I know it goes against the grain to hand over money to people like that, but I would feel that the dog's interests come first. If it was local to me, I would buy it myself (I'm in North Wales)

I cannot believe how anyone could "hate" a cavalier! To keep it in a cage - it makes one so angry! Good luck with rescuing this one, and well done for getting involved! Best wishes,Susanne & Frankie (12):xfngr::paw::paw:

What a tough call :(. I hate these situations.

They wouldn't consider surrendering to a rescue would they?

It's a tough one, but , I think in these circumtances I would pay to rescue the poor little thing, or try convincing them to surrender it.

I'm currently looking for a cavalier tri rescue dog or bitch, but hadn't considered travelling THAT far (for the sake of the dog having to travel back to North Wales), but would consider it if no-one closer could help an animal in need. I would expect to pay £150 to a rescue centre if I adopted (would RATHER give money to a rescue obviously!!). Are they advertising the poor thing anywhere?

I'm just waiting to hear back from my sister about it.

They know she has done cavalier rescue which is why they keep whining at her about the dog but they wont just hand it over

Very peculiar. Having read another post about someone posing to be involved in rescue, yet selling on dogs claiming they were her on but she couldn't keep them etc I am becoming more and more suspicious of anyone selling a dog with supposed 'genuine' reasons for not being able to keep it. Nevertheless, I would rather a dog lived with someone who loved it than someone who just saw it as 'goods' to buy and sell.

It does seem a little suspicious, but, maybe they bought the dog realised it was a mistake,want to offload it but are too mean and miserable to let the dog go without getting their monies worth.

They really don't sound like nice people,many people get dogs and have problems with them being flighty but don't lock it up all day!

They could try training or at least rehome the poor little thing:confused:

I am trying to conjure up an image where someone could look at a little cavalier in a cage all day and claim they hate it and want it gone:eek:
But I just can't imagine someone being so mean. NOT nice people at all!

Your sister should report those people to the local SPCA and maybe then they will surrender that poor little mite so it can have the life it deserves.

Have you contacted any local rescues to see if they can help?

Hi

I have just joined after reading about this poor little thing. I have been thinking of getting another Cav. I already have a boy, Rex. I live in the area and would be very grateful if you could let me have more information.

Thanks

:updte: just to tell you all that this little fella is now happy & very settled with my mum. he is now called Isaac & is such a character, gorgeous& a monkey! This is with thanks to At & her sister who were really helpful especially with directions as we got lost on the way!!
as you'll all know from reading the posts here Isaac was originally going to be with me however sadly Rubes strongly disliked him& growled every time he went near her then stopped eating in protest, he was so desperate for affection poor lad he would barge ruby out of the way if i paid her the slightest attention, he is quite a lot bigger than her so could knock her away easily.to cut a very long story short we all decided that Isaac needed to be an only child! He & mum bonded strongly & thats why he is there being spoilt rotten! i cried buckets to let him go BUT the main thing is we got him out of that cage& away to a loving home:thmbsup:

:thnku: thank you for all your good wishes,its so nice of you all:) Isaac has all his jabs,microchip & been neutered now. He is so responsive to my mum but pulls on his lead something shocking, i guess any would after his background, he is better off lead. mum is working hard with him. it is on my list to learn how to post pics onto here but i might have to phone a friend Lol!:sl*p:
