    Default Sam: Five year old male

    Have a housetrained five year old male cavalier coming into rescue, looking for an adult home or a home with older children. Pictures to come.

    Oh this poor, poor dog.

    Well, the owners whoever they are (I did not meet them -- he came via another rescue) hadn't given a very truthful story on this boy. He's a five year old male blenheim, a bit overweight, long nails, dirty, matted, wearing a choke chain. No idea what to do with toys, no training. A little afraid of people and easily overexcited and very, very stressed at the moment, having spent several days alone in kennels. I would guess he has been left in a back garden or tied up and mainly used for breeding or similar. At the moment I would say he needs to be classed as a puppy farm type rescue and needs calm TLC and structure so he can find his feet. He is even afraid of coming into the house. He sure has not known much love or human contact.

    He's going into foster where we can get him cleaned up and he can chill out for a few days, and then he will be neutered. After a bit I'll have a better sense of his personality and will have a picture later this week.

    OK, he's a lot more chilled today. I've checked with the rescue who has contact with the owner and from talking to them, I'd say he wasn't used for breeding (or at least wasn't only used for breeding!) but is the classic example of what happens when you get a people focused dog like a cavalier then don't bother to train him and expect him to live outside in the garden all day. He has all the signs of being a neglected backyard dog. He is very friendly and relaxed today and we should have some pics later. He has enjoyed having a walk and will get a bath and be vet checked a bit later and then, scheduled for his snip 'n' chip.

    We will let him adjust a bit more to normal life, then he will be homed on condition of doing an obedience class, and to an adult or older children family only.

    Here are some pics of Sam - he is going for his bath now and then for a check with the vets in the morning. He is a dote and is wagging his tail all the time now.

    OMG -- he is beautiful! So happy for him to be out of that horrible situation! At least the owners have given him up. Poor little guy. It's so great to hear that he's happy now!

    So glad you all have him and he is out of that situation. He looks like a handsome fella. So glad he's now in Thelly's extremely capable hands.

    He is a pretty little boy.

    Some newsagents, near us, got a lot of sympathetic publicity when they claimed that one of their two cavaliers had beeen stolen and killed in nearby fields. However, both dogs were left outside , from the early hours until 6pm and a photo of the premises showed a fence, with gaps easily broached by a pup (the dogs were in an open topped pen). I think the poor puppy escaped and fell, because, where he died the ground is very steep with rocky outcrops. A thief would have taken both dogs and neighbours heard no barking. Why do such people have dogs?
