Please enjoy the pictures and unique story of our rescued puppies.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse, these two little puppies, brother and sister, came from a puppy mill. They went to a large well known chain retail pet shop where it was discovered they had come infected with mange, a highly contagious skin condition caused by a parasite. The pet shop's veterinarian began skin treatments, baths, and shots which would take the course of several weeks to complete. After the treatments were completed the pet shop deemed they were much too OLD, (by pet shop standards), to return to the shop's window. Leaving these puppies in a crisis situation as to what was to become of them. Puppies who "Age out" in pet shops are usually put to sleep. Cavalier puppies are never turned into Rescue unless they are disabled or have a heart mummer. The pet shop did not want them and the alternative was unthinkable! Since these two rescued puppies were purebred, healthy, and could live out a normal life; theirs was an unusual and urgent situation. Through a mutual friend, who happens to know I'm a breeder and do rescue work, I was contacted by one of the shop's employees and asked to take these two puppies off their hands. I said yes, of course, and so these two precious little lost angels fell into my lap. They have since been rehomed and are very much loved by their wonderful new owners.
The following picture is Riley, who came to us as a nervous neurotic cavalier who paced back and forth and ran around in all kinds of circles; big circles and little circles. He is now living out the life of "O'Riley"
at Leisure World
in Camarillo; happy with his new owners who love him very much. His pacing and circling days are over with now!
Below is Ginger who was
rescued from a bad situation were she was replaced by the family's new baby.
She now lives with one of my past puppy buyers who wanted a second cavalier, but wanted to rescue one in need. I helped coordinate this rescue
through AKC Rescue Trust
. Now Ginger is loved and cherished as a cavalier should be!
Again I had someone contact me about one of my puppies but they really wanted to rescue a cavalier who needed a home. I put them in touch with USA Cavalier Rescue and they found Charley Brown (below).
Or rescue puppy Waco. His family bought him and then moved to a location that was not suitable for raising a puppy. Waco came from a Missouri puppy mill and was purchased through a deceptive internet broker clearinghouse called "Purebred breeders" The family was unaware he came from a puppy mill. Waco, renamed Montgomery, has since been rehomed with one of my awesome past puppy buyers who wanted a second dog for their cavalier to play with.
Or recent rescue, Winston, comes from back yard breeders where he was a left over puppy that did not sell. Once he grew up he was regulated to the back yard until he was four years old. The breeders decided to move and did not want to take Winston with them. Winston, renamed Charger, is now living in San Diego and bonding to his happy new owner.
