Welcome!! This is a great site to learn all you can about this wonderful breed!

What's a budgie...I'm in the States so forgive me for not knowing! :oops:

Welcome, Deborah!! There are some notes about what to do to find a good breeder in the FAqs section and be sure to read the Puppy Fram sectionm just so that you know what you don't want, and how to find a good breeder. I posted some information recently in I think the general section, where another Irish person (down here in the Republic) asked a similar question.

What you should do is contact the breed club in Northern Ireland and ask them if they can refer you to whoever has litters at this time. Here's a link to the secretary of the club:


You can also look around the rest of their site.

In general you do not want to get a dog from any small ads or the Buy&Sell.

Jen, a budgie is a parakeet! :lol:

Welcome Deborah

I've recently joined too and am in the same position as yourself, In search of a lovely Cavalier to complete the family. Let me know if u find someone who is a good breeder and has one left after u buy (I know its unlikely!!!!). I'm in Meath which is not too far from the boarder, I'm searching regularly so will let u know if I find any info or links of benifit to you. :)

Good Luck!!!!

lol....you are welcome jen ..and norah i found out last night about a guy who breeders them just about 7 miles away from where i live, and i will get out to see him very shortly, but i would prefer it if i already knew someone who had got a pup from him.
i bet this time next year the only king charles dog i will have will be the big ornament sitting on my fireplace, but what the hell its easy to look after lol...i will be in touch with you if i can find out anything. :)

Hi cleopatra!

Speaking of ornaments of cavaliers .... we got our pup a drinking bowl in the shape + colour of a bleinheim and when he saw it .. he didn't drink out of it (as he does now!) ... instead he kept barking at it and sniffing to see who this "intruder" was .... of course, he sometimes at the beginning did the same to the oven when he saw his reflection in it !!!

Hi and welcome Deborah :D I know how you feel about wanting a Cavalier. It took me 18mths to find my Maxxy. I'd desperately love another one or two or .....

Jen, this is a budgie


They are quite nice birds and can be taught to speak etc.....

Bit different to a parrot and aren't as big[/url]
