Jessie is a tricolour neutered male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who would put many younger dogs to shame and have them feeling guilty about their unused gym memberships! Though he is an 11 year old gentleman, he takes a daily walk of at least 2 miles with his owner and his vet says that he should have a good few active years to look forward to yet. He has just had a vet check and has a slight heart murmur -- normal in CKCS and many small breed dogs at this age -- but it is mild and needs no medication. He is going to have his teeth descaled before he goes to his new home as well but the vet says that's all he needs -- he is up to date on his vaccinations, has been groomed every three months all his life, loves kids and is happy with other dogs, sleeps politely in the kitchen in his dog bed every night, and is in all ways a model senior.
So why is he being rehomed? Only with great regret -- but his owners' latest grandchild has severe asthma to such a degree that at only 7 months old, she has already had to be hospitalised several times due to breathing difficulties. The doctor has said she absolutely cannot be around a dog in the home and as she goes to her grandmother's regularly to be minded, Jessie needs a new home. They have not been able to find any other way to work around this.
His owner, the grandmother, is a very active walker and takes him out for at least a two mile brisk walk daily which he enjoys. She says he is also a very lively, active, friendly dog who enjoys children and people generally: a model cavalier!
Jessie will be homed subject to a homecheck and will need an indoor home for his retirement years -- and hopefully, an owner who enjoys walks!
