Treasure has enjoyed motherhood and we’ve loved seeing her with her babies over the years, but it’s time for her to have her own special family to spoil her for the rest of her days. Treasure will be spayed when she has weaned her pups and retired.
Some may think it horrible that I place my adult dogs when they retire.
Let me try to explain, if I’m going to continue raising these adorable puppies for potential adopters, I have to raise more adults to be future parents. Obviously, we want our parents to have a nice life and “retire” at a nice age. So we raise some purebred Poodles and Cavaliers occasionally to step in when those current ones are ready to retire. So there are always more dogs around then just the current parents. All those dogs require attention, grooming, love, medical care, and space. And I only have so much of each. My house is small, so I can only fit so many in here with me at one time. If I could reasonably have all the dogs in the house with me I would! (Of course, my husband would probably move out and the kids would never visit! :P) But it’s just not possible when you have more than a few.
So I would much rather have an adult that is no longer being a parent, be spayed and retired into a home where he or she is the center of attention; a place where they will be doted on and spoiled. Where they can sleep on the couch, be part of the family activities and given all the attention they want. And I screen and place the dog into what I think sounds like the best home for that particular dog.
So once she has weaned these babies, she will be going in for a thorough check-up, her spay surgery, and make sure she is up-to-date on her vaccinations. She is micro-chipped, crate trained, leash trained and a love bug. She is also a little “blond” if you get my drift. (Sorry, to any fair-haired people. This wasn’t meant to bash your intelligence). She would rather wander the yard looking for butterflies then come dashing to you when you call her (it’s a Cavalier thing). She’ll come back, but she’ll jolly well take her time! She absolutely loves attention. And she’s a bit of a drama queen too (you can thank her dad, Noah for that “gene”). When you brush her, if you happen to hit a small tangle (I’m not talking about a big mat, but a minuscule little knot) she may cry out in “pain”. *insert eye roll* Please don’t let her fool you. She is not in pain, but she will act like it. She can be vocal when she wants something too. (“Oh, you’re getting my dinner ready? I’m going to cheer you on with my voice; *bark, *bark, *bark!” You can thank Noah for that too.)
She does not have a dominant personality. She gets along well with other dogs and probably cats too. She doesn’t have a chance to interact with ours much but she is not aggressive towards any other creatures. She loves all people; big (adults) and little (children). She turned five in November so she is still young enough to have a long, happy life with a new family.
So if you think Treasure might be a good fit for you family please do not comment on the blog, but if you’re seriously interested please fill out our Puppy Application forms and write in that you are interested in Treasure in the section that asks “what you are looking for in a puppy?” section. And the more you can tell me about your family and other pets will be helpful. I’m sure I will get multiple applications for her so I will sort through them to find the best fit for her.
P.S. She is not “free” but the adoption fee is reasonable and will be shared after applications are received.
