Reference no – D2020-089
Age: !0 years approx.
Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Fostered in: South Wales
Health conditions: When Suki arrived, she had a sizeable tumour on her mammary gland. This has now been surgically removed. The vet is hopeful that it has been removed in its entirety, but the site should be checked for any future regrowth. Suki’s mouth was in a poor state of neglect. She had to have a full dental and some teeth removed so she is on a diet of wet food only at present. She is recovering well with no major discomfort. She also has a Grade 4 heart murmur which requires no medication at present but must be monitored and will likely need heart scans and long-term medication soon. Because of this Suki will be adopted on an assisted basis whereby the charity will pay the veterinary costs of treatment for her heart condition only.
Suki is a small cute cavy with a wiggly body and a waggy tail. She was surrendered from home along with 15 other dogs. Her living conditions were awful, and she was kept in a crate. Despite these circumstances she is a very friendly little girl who loves her humans and craves to be with them 24/7
People: Suki loves her humans. When she was rescued, she ran from her cage straight into the arms of her rescuer. She loves to be cuddled up next to you on the sofa and her tail wags every time she hears your voice. If she is out in the garden and she sees you she will run up and put her little paws on your legs she really does like to be close. She enjoys being groomed however is a little uncomfortable having her ears and eyes cleaned but tolerates it.
Can live with children: Because of lockdown Suki has not had the opportunity of meeting children. She is a delicate little soul with heart issues so needs a quiet home. She is friendly so older children would be fine.
Can live with cats: Not tested.
Can live with other dogs: Suki is living with five other dogs in her foster home and has been fine with them all. She prefers her humans to dogs, but she does like to cuddle up on a chair with the other cavaliers. She could be rehomed as an only dog if the adopters are prepared to spend lots of time with her, but another quiet affectionate dog or dogs will provide her with some company if the humans go out. She has not been out on a lead yet as she has not had her second vaccination, but she is not comfortable with a lead on in the garden.
In the home: Suki is housetrained in her foster home. She did have a few accidents initially but is fine now. She sleeps in a crate on her own or in a playpen with two other dogs. She has been a bit fretful and barks for company when lights go out but does settle. She has been left in the house with the other dogs for about an hour and has been fine. She sleeps a lot so as long as she has a sofa to lie on she is fine. She does not show interest in toys. She has not shown any food aggression, but she does eat separately as one of the other dogs tries to eat her food. Her appetite has waned a little since her had her teeth out but generally she enjoys her food. She is wonderful loving little girl sweet and affectionate and all she asks from life is cuddles, a sofa to lie on and someone to love.
Out and about: Suki has only travelled to the vets in a car in a crate and she cried in most of the way. I think she would travel better on a harness in the car with her humans.
Type of home: As this is an assisted adoption applicant will need to live near one of our Maesglas Vets practices. Suki needs a quiet home where there will be someone willing to devote their time to supplying her with the love and cuddles, she enjoys so much. She could possibly be an only dog however we think she would enjoy the company of another dog if they were laid back and liked to sit on the sofa with her. This will be an assisted adoption so potential adopters would need to understand her potential health issues. She has not had the best life recently yet despite this she has so much love to give to a family who have the time to love and cherish her for the rest of her days.
Suki is neutered and up to date with her flea and worming treatments. She is currently awaiting second vaccination.
Due to Covid19 lock down restrictions, we are only accepting local re homing applications.
Potential adopters would be expected to travel to South Wales to meet her.
