Our shelter has received a lovely stray Cavalier girl whom I very much hope to adopt if nobody comes to claim her. I'm a longtime Cavalier lover (have been lurking on this forum for a couple years, actually) who has been waiting for years for the right Cavalier to come into my life.
This little gal has all her adult teeth, although they're pearly-white, the hair on her ears hasn't fully grown in, and she's in heat in a major way. At what age do Cavalier pups typically have their first heat? Is it 6 months, or more like 9? (Based on her teeth, I'd personally guess her at about 9 months but wanted to check with the more Cav-savvy folks here.) Thanks!
