    What was his personality like? He looks like a little bear!

    He actually wouldn't be inconsistent with the kinds of cavaliers that can come from BYBs and puppy mills -- you will see a huge variation in size, head shape etc. Some cavalier lines way back when were actually developed using springers amongst other breeds (Bet would know all this in more detail) so you do see some odd and unusual features come to the fore sometimes. From viewing dogs on Petfinder a lot of the cavaliers look more like crosses.

    The other issue is that many cavaliers from such backgrounds and used for breeding may have other breeds in their background more recently and this might emerge when other less than scrupulous breeders breed these dogs in turn.

    I've seen some pretty odd looking cavaliers come from club-registered breeders too -- way off breed standard. That's why club registration on its own doesn't necessarily indicate a quality breeder. Research, research, research for the puppy buyer!

    What great news, Raven!! He'll be so handsome when he loses a huge bit of weight--poor fella. So glad to hear he's going to a good home!

    Raven,
    When are they getting him? I keep watching PetFinder to see when his posting disappears - he's still there! I sure hope everything is going to work out for the big guy and your friends. I was so excited to hear that he was getting a new home. Let me know what's happening - please.

    yes, the franklin county shelter is a little slow on removing things off their site... I haven't seen them in a few days, so I don't know for sure, but they were going to go not soon after I last talked to them... like that day or the next to pick him up

    That would be great if you can update when you know he's in his new home. Now he has a fanclub.
