This says she's a mix but from this picture she looks like a Cavalier to me.

Yes I think she is a CKCS too. Maybe they think she is a mix because she's a mismarked ruby. Can someone in the US let regional club rescue know about her? Unless someone on the board in Tennessee is looking for a ruby. :)

I can post it to the Cavaliers Yahoo Group I also read.

That dog looks like she's got cataracts in her eyes already. I wonder if she's older than the claimed 8 years.

I sent the link to the state coordinator for Cavalier Rescue USA. I'll let you know when I hear something.

Hope Rescue can get her. I've had 2 rescues with eyes like that and after repeated saline flushes they had bright shiny eyes.

Sometimes it is just the angle that makes it look like the lenses are a bit fogged. But then sometimes they are just guessing at the age or have to go on what the owners said, which isn't always the truth! She looks lovely though and older dogs are such a pleasure. :)

I just heard back from the Cavalier Rescue USA rep for Tennessee. Rosie has been adopted! Actually, she was adopted the day her ad went on Petfinder. The shelter said they received more calls that day than ever before, so they are probably keeping her profile on Petfinder to increase inquiries to their shelter. It happens somewhat frequently with shelters here in the U.S.

Greg (rescue contact) left his information with the shelter and told them that he would love to help them with any future cavaliers in need.

FYI -- if you see a cavalier on Petfinder and would like to alert rescue, go to www.cavalierrescueusa.org (http://www.cavalierrescueusa.org). Then click on "contact us" and you will be taken to a page where rescue coordinators are listed by state (along with email links and other contact information). Anytime I come across a dog on Petfinder (who is not already in a rescue situation) I automatically email the state rescue coordinator. Lucky Star is another U.S. cavalier rescue. The contact there is Kim Olive at www.luckystarcavalierrescue.org (http://www.luckystarcavalierrescue.org).
