Valentina is a healthy pup that is very snuggly and prefers to be held the majority of the time. She was released to rescue because she was too small for the breeder's program. It was likely that she may have been the runt and will remain a smaller stature Cavalier.
We like to remind applicants that a new puppy is a lot like a toddler. Val will need to be supervised, and the best way to do that is to have a dedicated space set up for her. This area will be a part of the home where she can see activity & observe, but it is a place that is puppy proofed. Where she can play, lounge, or nap when her family is not directly engaging. Playpens, 4-squares, or x-pens are excellent tools to make this possible. They are easily mobile if you want to move them around, too.
We are open to discussing an x-pen if you do not have a fenced yard. Val is not leashed trained; she will need secure containment immediately. If you have a fence, it needs to be completely secure & enclosed. NEVER EVER should a puppy be left in a yard without supervision. If you have interior stairs, please have a plan to keep your puppy off the stairs unsupervised. Additionally, please be aware of the stair railing & the distance between the spindles.
We are working on potty training. It is a process that will require commitment & patience, as puppies have a little puppy bladder. Remember, in a new home, a new environment means that new habits will have to be established.
Bringing home a new puppy is a huge responsibility that requires oodles of time! But it is very rewarding if everyone is invested. Please apply if you meet the requirements & would like to adopt an adorable puppy. Please don’t apply without speaking to your spouse/partner first.
