Sometimes, through no fault of their own, older puppies and mature dogs become available for adoption to loving and special families only.
Unfortunately, much as we would like to, we can't keep them all and as we don't believe in over-breeding our girls, we endeavour to find them special homes while they are still young enough to have many years in a loving environment.
Sometimes a puppy may not develope up quite the way we envisaged, or may have a fault which excludes it from showing or breeding.
When we offer the more mature puppy or dog for adoption, we are not simply passing on our problems. Indeed we are looking for very very special homes for these beautiful little people who have contributed so much to our lives up until the time they are offered for adoption. We are looking for people who will care for our dogs equally as much as we do and who will keep in touch from time to time to let us know our girls and boys are living happy, loving lives.
Mature adoptions, particularly girls retired from breeding, are particularly suited to families who would rather not go through the puppy chewing and digging stages, but would love a sweet little dog to share their lives with, or a family with very young children. They also make very suitable companions for an existing family pet, whether young or old.
If you think you can fill these shoes, have a look at the availabilities and if you'd like to apply, please follow the directions beside the photos of the available dogs. Just one more thing of note. Some people have the impression that adopting a more mature dog is a way of obtaining a good quality dog 'free'. While we may include desexing in the price of the puppy or dog, and while they may not carry the same price as younger puppies, they are not 'free'.
Mature dogs available for adoption
All our dogs are loved, have their every need catered to and are all happy, healthy and loving individuals, however, you have to consider that they may not have experienced much of the outside world, other than visitors, and will need your understanding and encouragement in learning about what's outside their normal experience to date. Obviously once they're feeling more confident about going everywhere and seeing strange things, they will be like any normal adult Cavi, however adopting a mature dog does mean the same socialisation needs as a puppy.
Mature Dogs Available
All our adult dogs are specialist heart and eye cleared.
If you would like the opportunity to adopt one of our retired dogs, please and complete the questionnaire - please name the dog(s) you are inquiring about. Bear in mind that we have a strong love for and strong rapport with our older dogs and this can lead to an even greater need from us for reassurance that the home they go to is special and suitable for them.
