    Default Rescue Dog Wanted

    Hello All - I have recently taken early retirement and would like to own a dog now for the first time ever. Complete beginner so will need lots of help!

    I have looked at several breeds and have set my heart on a Cavalier King Charles. I would like to get a rescue rather than go to a breeder, if possible. I have looked at various sites. How best would I go about giving a forever home to a dog, preferably female and preferably not too old so that I would have quite some time with her? I live in Hertfordshire but can travel a reasonable distance. All advice welcome.

    Many thanks.

    This is a link to the list here of cavalier rescue. It may take some time to find the right cavalier for you. In the mean time use this site to learn about the breed. Cavalier's do have some pretty serious health issues (read pretty high vet bills) so you need to know all about that. Plus cavaliers need grooming and such so you can busy yourself with learning about that.

    Cavalier are great perfect little dogs for someone retired (or home often). My cavalier Fletcher is my first puppy ever tho I have owned dogs before. Puppies are a lot of work an adult rescue would be perfect for a first dog ever!

    Welcome and best of luck on finding a rescue! We also often have available rescue dogs in the UK posted into the rescue forum so it's worth keeping an eye out there.

    Many thanks, I will certainly keep an eye on the rescue forum - I hadn't realised there was one!
