MEET CAMBRY 🐢
In August we rescued sweet 4 year old (DOB 12/22/2016) Cambry off the USDA auction block and out of the puppy mill industry. Soon after, her puppy mill was busted and it came to light the absolutely horrific conditions and suffering that Cambry and over 500 other dogs endured there. Cambry has been adjusting well to life outside the mill and is now medically cleared and ready to continue living her best life and making up for lost time with a family to call her own.

MEDICAL 🩺
Cambry underwent her spay surgery and dental in our care. We also treated her for ear mites, whipworms, and a corneal ulceration as a result of low tear production. Her ears and fecal test are now all clear, her corneal ulcer has healed, and her 'dry eye'/low tear production is now well managed with a twice a day tear stimulant drop and an over the counter lubricating gel. Cambry's heart, knees, and hips are clear and congenitally sound. She is now up to date on vaccinations, spayed, had a recent dental, is microchipped, and on monthly preventatives. Cambry does not require any additional vetting outside of regular wellness checks at this time and is not on any prescription medication except for the tear stimulant eye drop which is about $15 a month.

FOOD & POTTY HABITS πŸ₯˜
Cute little Cambry is on the smaller side weighing about 13 pounds. She eats her strictly portioned Fromm kibble meals twice per day and enjoys Fromm treats throughout the day. Like most Cavaliers she is excited for meals and treats and always licks her bowl clean. Her family must be committed to continuing her strictly portioned meals, limited healthy treats, and daily activity/exercise to ensure she stays at her ideal weight and best health.

Living in a home environment for the first time, potty training is brand new to Cambry and has been a little bit of a challenge although she continues to make good progress. The key is to give Cambry many opportunities outside during the day to limit the chance of her having an accident inside. She needs to be taken out first thing in the morning, last thing at night and every couple hours in between to ensure potty training success. She has never had an overnight accident. She does not 'signal' or alert that she needs to go potty, so her people must be diligent in taking the initiative to let her out frequently and to supervise her closely in the house in between outings. Like so many, she does not like to potty outside in the rain or when the ground is wet. She is treat motivated so a special high value treat immediately following good potty behavior will positively reinforce expectations. But please know that continued and ongoing training will be needed and that accidents are to be expected. Her family must be gentle and patient with her as she learns this new way of life.

PERSONALITY πŸ’•
Cambry's foster family describe her as super sweet, loving, and very velcro meaning that she wants to be attached to you all of the time. She was deprived of human love and attention for so long so we are certain she is making up for lost time. If you like your space, privacy, or time to yourself, Cambry is certainly not the dog for you. She is such a snuggle bug and will curl herself up into a ball and fit wherever there is an available spot to cuddle, like the space in between your neck and shoulder. She will run to meet you everytime you come around the corner as if she hasn't seen you all day ❀

People are her absolute favorite but some of her other favorite things are clean piles of laundry fresh out of the dryer, treats, and special outings with her people. She also really loves being in the big bed and is content to stay cuddled up in bed for as long as you are willing to stay there.

ROUTINE ⏰
Cambry's foster mom works from home so Cambry spends much of the day with her people which makes her very happy. She lounges and naps close by foster mom in the home office with her cavalier foster siblings while she works and takes frequent trips to the yard for pottying and fresh air. When the kiddos come home from school in the afternoon she enjoys interacting with them and then in the evenings she plays 'sous chef' in the kitchen while dinner is being prepared. Little Miss Velcro has the tendency to be very underfoot and in between your legs and her people must be aware of that for their safety.

During short periods of time when no humans are home, Cambry stays in an xpen with her Cavalier foster brother. She will bark initially when you leave but settles down quickly. While she does fine for short periods of time alone, we do not believe she would do well with long away hours away from her people so we are seeking a family where someone can be with her much of the day.

At night, Cambry sleeps in the big bed with her humans and Cavalier foster siblings. No surprise that she sleeps curled up right next to you and sleeps peacefully and soundly all night like a quiet, cuddly companion. We do not feel she would do well being asked to sleep apart from her people so we are seeking a family who will invite her into the big bed with them.

SOCIALIZATION πŸ’œ
Unlike most puppy mill dogs who approach new people with fear and caution, Cambry sees every person as an opportunity for love and attention. She greets everyone with a wagging tail and smile and is truly soaking up all the love she can get after missing out on it for so long! While much of the world around her is still new, she is more curious and interested than she is cautious but can still be startled by some noises, especially loud or startling ones like an alarm or fireworks.

She shares her foster home with gentle kiddos and does wonderfully with them. She would do well in an adult only home or a home with gentle children who know how to engage with her appropriately. She also shares her home with her Cavalier foster siblings and really looks to them for both leadership and companionship. Her playful side is starting to come out and she seems to take a particular liking to her younger more playful fur siblings. She will run zoomies with the dogs and will chase after toys although she hasn't quite figured out bringing the toy back! She would do best with another Cavalier, or another dog of similar size and mild temperament, in her furever home. She has not been around any cats in our care so we are unsure how she would do with a feline furiend.

HER IDEAL FAMILY & HOME 🏑
Being on a leash is brand new to Cambry and she is learning. That said, a safe and secured fenced yard is best for her continued potty training. She is also really enjoying her new found outdoor freedom and she loves to romp and run through the yard with the other dogs. We do encourage her family to continue working with her on leash as we know she will enjoy leashed outings and adventures with her person once she gets the hang of it! Treats help!

Cambry is an excellent traveler and loves car rides and being able to accompany you. She rides very well in her boosted car seat where she can take in all the new sights around her. She really wants to be a part of the family as much as possible so appreciates the invite to tag along with you. She is tiny and easy to tote around!

Most importantly, Cambry needs a family who has the time to shower her with love and attention so we are seeking a home where someone can be with her most of the day and where she would have low alone time.

HOW TO APPLY πŸ’»
