    Default More cavaliers arriving...

    FOUR more, three females and a male. One female already booked. Females will likely be sorted on my long waiting list for females but another tri male from a stressed background will be looking for a loving home.

    That's 12 cavaliers in 10 weeks.

    There seem to be cavaliers all over the place at the moment . Is this the lead-up to Christmas?

    Why are so many people handing up cavs,they are such placid and loving dogs.

    In my area when I got Gus 4 and 1/2 years ago hardly anyone had them, then all of a sudden they were everywhere,but I do notice a lot of people take them on without realising that they are a house dog not meant to sleep outside and not very good at being left alone.

    Maybe when people realise that they need to be indoors and with people, they don't have the time to give them the attention they need, so give them away.

    This is sad ,people should really think hard about the commitment needed to have any dog but especially a cavalier,they are practicaly human.

    I work part-time but on weekends when there is always someone else around, and during the week I am here all day.
    The longest I leave mine are 4 to 6 hours at the most and usually less. They don't mind us going out as usually there is somone coming or going.

    When we are all gone out for a while they make a big fuss of us when we come home but if we are all just popping in and out at different times they don't bat an eyelid.

    Recently I heard of a cav that went missing,when I asked what had happened I was told the owner went out to the back garden at 10 pm to put her to bed in the shed and she was gone! they were putting her to bed early because it was a stormy night. They were devastated.
    They got her back and were delighted, but it breaks my heart to hear of a cav spending a lot of time( most of it from what I can gather) outside and sleeping in a shed alone

    I wish there was some way of educating people on these little dogs and maybe so many wouldn't end up in rescue.

    Karlin , I think you are just wonderful and wish I could do more to help but to be honest while I do have the time to give, financially I can't manage more than two dogs

    Best of luck with the rehoming

    That is pretty much it for a lot of them that I get calls about. For some people, a new baby or a new garden is the reason. Sometimes people were given a puppy as a present that they never really wanted (that's why a no-gift-puppies policy unless you KNOW the person wants oneis a good approach!) For some people the decision is really hard. For others they are just an inconvenience.

    Most of the dogs I've had are strays. Only more recently have they been people giving up a dog.

    It's great when you get the pics a few weeks or months later and there's the dog very happy in the *correct* home for him or her.

    I'm not sure why there are suddenly so many -- though in part it is that more people know I exist. In the case of every one of the last 13 cavaliers I've had, I've ended up with them because people know there's an Irish cavalier rescue.

    I'd really like to help more of the puppy farm ex breeding dogs or regular breeder's ex breeding dogs -- have started to get a couple of those. Problem is I don't have a place I could keep them myself -- so it makes rescue harder.

    Karlin is there anything I can do to help up north? Like letting vets and animal shelters know that there is such a thing as a specialised Cav rescue in Ireland?

    I think the P/Farms have a turf out now of the older bitches that have just had litters...obviously they don't want to have to feed and shelter over the winter months when no pups are due, a waste of money in their eyes... ...well if you can call it food, shelter and water.. ..

    ...make any sense Fran?
