I would very much appreciate anyone who can guide me towards finding reputable breeders of B&T Cavaliers in Ireland as I am having no luck up to now. The Irish Kennel Club has not responded as yet to my query, so am left pretty much in limbo.
Why you may well ask must it be B&T? Well, at the risk of being labelled too sensitive by far, my reasons are, firstly I have never owned a B&T and secondly it is still early days since our beloved Toby a Blenheim and Loui a TRI went to the Bridge and I am not ashamed to say that I would not find it easy just now to have either of those colours in the house...later down the line yes.
My little Ruby, Max has always been used to having two or more dogs around him and so I truly feel that he would benefit from canine company right now.
I have had concerns about posting this query, being unsure as to whether it was permitted, so if I have broken any rules, I apologise.
You would also be forgiven for asking that if I am so keen to have a B&T then why not give a rescue dog a loving home.? There is nothing I would love more, except that I am no longer in a financially viable position to cater for a little dog with possible on-going health issues, so a healthy puppy or very young dog is the only option. Also to be fair,I do not feel emotionally strong enough right now to cope with a little dog that may have been ill treated and suffering psychological damage. Basically then, I am searching for breeders who can comply with the questionaire as outlined in Karlin's advise post on buying a puppy. If posts in reply to this query are not permitted publicly, then please be so kind and either PM me or indeed just advise as to who may be able to supply me with a list of reputable breeders. Thanking all readers of this post in anticipation of a response.
