These two are still waiting for their new homes.
It is a real shame because they are two of the nicest cavaliers i have had through rescue , they are nicer than my own dogs !

Have you also tried posting to Dogpages? That is a huge UK community.
I am sure you will have takers -- it does take a bit of time though. It usually takes me a couple of weeks to place a dog by the time I get responses and do homechecks etc.
This picture is adorable!
You should post it as an image here.

I was very active on dogpages a few years ago , i'll try there.
i've not had any responce whatsoever & i'm getting attached to them ( & my dads getting angry. if I had my own house it wouldnt be a problem)
They really are lovely , I can hear their tails banging on the floor from the other room ,lol
of course they arn't going anywhere until I find a good home.
i'm not sure how to do images , i'll have to look it up

The two cavs look so sweet - I am looking to rehome a cavalier but I guess ours would not be a suitable home as I have three children and a standard poodle!!!. They are all very well behaved and used to Cavaliers as we look after my friend's - little Tilly - a blenheim female quite often - we all adore her. However in all honesty our house can't be described as a quiet home all the time!! Would an ex-stud dog cope with this or is it better to have a cav used to kids?

From my own view -- It really depends on the dog-- and the age of kids. An ex puppy farm dog is probably not the best choice for very young or really active kids as these dogs are usually very undersocialised and kifds can be way too stressful for them. I'd be reluctant to place such a dog myself with kids under 11-12 but again it would depend on the dog and Angela knows the dogs and I am sure has the kind of home that might suit, in mind so it would be worth PMing Angela (AT) perhaps to discuss further?
Angela I think Nicki also had some suggestions for a rescue that could help, too. It does generally take time to place dogs and if you are under some pressure, getting a bit of help might make things easier.
I bet they will be snapped up on Dogpages though as cavaliers are always in demand. If you want me to send out a homing pack to a hm let me know. I can also send a homing pack to you and then you can copy it and give out as needed.

Thanks for that - my children are young and although I supervise them at all times they can be noisy when playing! My standard poodle tends to go to her crate if the children are running around and the children know to leave her alone when she is in there.
However I will give Angela a call just in case - but it may well be that a rescue cav from a home with kids might be more sensible for us.

Roger is used to children as the " breeder" had loads of kids.
But to be honest I turned down a lovely home in gloucester because it was a long way ( I sent them to many tears instead) I have nothing really against dogs moving around the country its just there are so many cavs in rescue at the moment its probably best to see if you can find one in your area.
if you can't & are willing to travel you are welcome to contact me .

Thanks for your reply - I agree that it is a long way for a dog to travel to us which might be very unsettling for them. Unfortunately more dogs do seem to come up for adoption further north - and I know several people around here who are looking for older cavaliers but are unable to find one.
I don't know why that is but I am happy to wait for the right dog for us.
