    Default Max needs a fabulous new home!!!

    Max is a beautiful tri colour cavalier KC spaniel who was recently rescued from a Welsh puppy farm by Many Tears Rescue. He is 5 years old and is an ex-stud dog. He is sweet and charming and loves cuddles, gentle grooming and food!

    Max is neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date with all vaccinations.

    Max is looking for an extra special home as he has heart disease and a grade 6 murmur. He needs regular medication which costs about £30 a month although the rescue will supply it at cost price. The cost of this is currently being checked.

    Max would really like a new home with someone who is around most of the day and who understands his condition. Ideally, the new owner would have owned a cavalier before and maybe even cared for a dog with MVD. When he was rescued, Max was very thin and weak and, as such, he needs extra meals to build him up. Now, after just 2 weeks, he is enjoying walks with the other dogs and runs faster than any of them!! He continues to improve daily and, with medication, should live another 3 or 4 years at least.

    Max has bundles of love to give and will love learning how to be an adored pet. He is a joy to have around and he deserves to experience some happiness in his life after his horrific start. He walks well on the lead, is house-trained, loves other dogs and doesn’t seem to mind cats. An ideal dog in many ways!!

    There must be a special someone out there who thinks Max is worth the time, effort and money. If that is you please call Kevin on (01249) 650997.

    Aileen, I wonder if he would fit in - don't see why not.

    You'd be perfect, having experience of MVD and ex breeding dogs.

    You have actually been recommended to me, Aileen!!

    If you want to chat about him my number is (02393) 645784.

    I am in NO rush to get rid of him and I would DEFINATELY want to stay in touch and have regular updates!!! He is the sweetest boy. I would be prepared to help with the cost of his medications because he is really starting to enjoy life now he feels better. It lifts my soul every time he runs or asks confidently for a cuddle!

    I have started work now and although he is fine with my dogs and he gets walked at lunch time, I feel that, because of his start, he needs more attention and loving. Would you be able to give him that?!!!

    ps I almost hope you say no cos I love him so much!!! xx

    I'm sorry to hear about Barney. I hope he gets well soon.

    I have arranged for Max to stay with another fosterer nearby as she is home in the day. I am still going to take him for country walks at the weekend and when she goes away.

    Are you working with Many Tears to home this guy, since he is one of their rescues? They have the ability to make far more people aware that he is looking for a home via their website and normally I know they do pretty stringent homechecks etc themselves so it might be a good idea to have them post him as available as it will greatly increase his chance of being homed. They would have a large number of people watching their site for cavaliers. I know you may well have already worked all this out with them, but just in case.

    Updated to add: Oh I see he is listed down at the bottom of their page with the contact details you have above.

    Also Karlin, I wanted them to publish the info as it is on this site but they said no because people call them up to tell them he should be put down!! I still think he would be more likely to be homed if they did though.

    There is a chance that his new fosterer may keep him if she likes him. She has had a dog with end stage MVD before which is good news for Max!!

    Max's new fosterer is not going to be able to keep him, so poor Max is still looking for him forever home (however long that may be).

    He settled very quickly with his new foster mum and is now fully house trained. He sleeps in his crate all night and is eating everything offered to him. Tomorrow we are taking him out for a country walk with my dogs!

    Please consider him and ask around. If money is a problem I may be able to help, I just want to see him settled.

    Poor Max .

    I have one of Many Tears' ex puppy farm lads and he's a sweetheart, who gives the best doggy cuddles ever .

    I'm sure someone will come forward soon, particularly with the meds coming at cost. Our 7 year old lad (not a rescue) has grade 5-6 and his meds. cost about £135.00/mth and that's only with consultations when necessary - mostly it's just repeat prescriptions. He's insured. (phew!)

    I've had 3 of my cavi's die from MVD, so very experienced with it, and I work mainly from home, but I'm bursting at the seams with 6 furbabies.

    I wish Max well and I know you think the world of him.
