I am already spayed, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
We would like to explain that if you are looking for a perfect dog, they are rarely found in rescue. Our dogs often have unknown histories and we do our very best to evaluate each dog with kids, cats, and other dogs as well as determine how they behave in a home. It is important to understand that we have some specific criteria for each dog based on their backgrounds and input from their foster families. The purpose of these criteria is to better match each dog with an appropriate family. While a certain dog might appeal to you based on breed, size, gender or appearance, you may not match the listed criteria. Please understand that we are not trying to make adoption difficult—we are trying to make each adoption successful for the dog and the new family.
Scarlet is a 5 year old, 18 pound purebred ruby cavalier who is doing extremely well considering that she was recently rescued from a breeder who wanted all of her dogs and puppies euthanized since she wasn't going to breed anymore. Scarlett is a lover as the cavaliers were originally bred to be. They were nicknamed the "comforter" spaniel and that is what she is. Scarlet would do best in a home that can devote plenty of time with her and reinforce the bond. However her new family will have to understand that she has just now discovered that humans can be good and she might try to bond too tightly. This means she'll have to be encouraged to experience all kinds of people, places and activities to ensure a healthy development. She won't do well in a home that is too sedentary and removed from interactions with others but the pace of life for this girl shouldn't be too high energy either. She has a lot of healing to do and a good balance of new experiences and quiet restful time would be perfect for her. Scarlet is crate trained and is doing very well on her house training when she is taken out regularly. Her $400 adoption fee covers her spay, heartworm test and pill, shots, worming, professional grooming and microchip
