MEET GRETA 💕 Greta came to us from a bad breeding operation closing down. Like Gaston, who we believe may be her littermate, Greta came to us with no records so we are unsure of her exact birthdate. Yesterday, she underwent her full intake vetting and our vet feels she is under a year old, and likely somewhere between 9-12 months of age. Because we didn’t have any vaccination records, we opted to titer test to check her levels of protection first rather than putting her at risk of “over-vaccinating”. We are awaiting those results. We are happy to report that she received a perfect physical exam ✅ 12 pound Greta is healthy and congenitally sound with clear eyes, knees, hips, and heart. Her ears, skin, teeth are all clean and clear. Her fecal test did reveal whipworms and hookworms 🪱 so she is being treated for those and we will recheck her fecal in a couple weeks. Her bloodwork was normal and we are still awaiting the results of her urinalysis, heartworm test, and tick borne illness test. We will be sure to update when the rest of her results are in. Greta was cleared for her spay surgery which she underwent today and everything went well. She is now in her foster home in Birmingham, Alabama resting and recovering 💕 Greta, like Gaston, is very much your typical, active, spirited, sweet, playful pup but she hasn’t been handled or socialized with humans much. She is learning how good it feels to be held and loved on and how much fun it is to interact with people. She is going to continue to respond well and thrive with gentle socialization efforts and from the leadership of other well adjusted furry furiends 💜

Cavalier Rescue of Alabama dba The Cavalier Rescue rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Our dogs come in by breeder surrenders, owner surrenders, puppy mill dispersal auctions, shelter transfers, and strays. We work with shelters in many areas including Humane Society Partnerships in Birmingham, Mobile, Huntsville, Anniston, Oxford, Lineville, Pell City, Tuscaloosa Montgomery, Dothan as well as several in Dallas and North Texas. We have active teams in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Texas. We partner with other rescues for the greatest impact possible.
We also focus on prevention which includes education. We support the Alabama Puppy Mill Project. Our founders helped rescue the dogs of Rock Cliff Farms in November of 2014. We advise people to be wary of breeders/puppy mills that use terms to market their dogs such as: Mini or miniature Cavalier, health guarantee, try to avoid answering questions, or won’t allow potential buyers to meet the parents and see where they live. Never buy a puppy from a pet store. Pet store puppies are puppy mill puppies.
We take care to give the dogs in our program everything they need to thrive with complete health evaluations and treatment, including eye specialists, cardiac specialists and orthopedic specialists. We treat luxating patellas, hip dysplasia, cardiac murmurs/insufficiencies, cancer, obesity, eye issues, and whatever else a dog may need to obtain best state of health.
