LEXI

Lexi is a 4-year-old, spayed, tricolor who has been in foster care now for about 3 months. Lexi is an extremely happy dog with a lot of love to give. She has adjusted well to living in a multi-dog foster home; although her main complaint is that she has to share a lap! She is an excellent eater; she is crate trained; and she is now using the dog door very reliably. She has had no accidents at all in the foster home.

 The only issue noticed in the foster home is some slight toy guarding; however, if you distract her, she will leave the item and walk away. While she is not a chronic barker, she does occasionally call to the other dogs in the neighborhood--but she will stop immediately when asked.  

 Lexi is a joyful pup, and we feel she would be good in a home with older children who know how to handle a dog. She would also do best in a home where she is not left alone for more than a few hours a day. Lap and cuddle time are at the top of her list of things she loves. (Well, maybe dinner time is her favorite time!). She can be anxious for just a few minutes when her people leave the home, so crating is recommended for the times when her owners are not around.

Training is a great way for owners to bond with their dogs, and Lexi is quite happy when her people work with her. We are currently working on teaching her “stay”.

Lexi and Bentley were relinquished together. While they enjoy each other’s company, they can also be apart and not show signs of anxiety. Our preference is to place them together. If you are interested in Lexi and Bentley and live within easy driving distance of Santa Clara, please fill out the Adoption Application.

BENTLEY

Bentley is a 6-year-old, neutered, Blenheim boy. He is a little on the big side at about 24 lbs. He’s not overweight; but as with humans, dogs come in tall and short, and Bentley is just a tad on the taller side. His huge brown eyes will charm you, and this gentleman is one of the most loving dogs this foster home has ever seen. A favorite pastime is to jump into his foster mom’s lap and roll over for a tummy rub. He is quite content to take his naps in this position, too!

Reliably crate trained, dog door trained, and accident-free in his foster home, Bentley should fit in nicely in a new home. Fortunately, he doesn’t have the bad habit of leg lifting inside the home, either. He’s just a very nice little houseguest here.

Walks are a favorite activity of Bentley, and he walks beautifully on a leash. He gets along with the other dogs in the foster home, and plays nicely with them. However, he has shown some minor guarding issues which may go away in a home with fewer dogs. If you ask him to stop a behavior, he will stop it immediately. Basically--he’s just a nice quiet boy.

Bentley does have a heart murmur, but x-rays show that his heart is not enlarged yet; and, he is not on any medication at all at this time. This picture shows his lovely smile; he just had a dental in the past month. He is up to date on all vaccinations as well.

The foster home feels confident that Bentley would do very well in a home either with older children, or with retirees, or with someone who is home at least part of the day. Bentley did come in with Lexi; we would like them to stay together, although they have proved to be independent in the foster home.

Our preference is to place Bentley and Lexi together. ( However, we might consider placing them separately if it appears to be the best decision for both of the dogs.)

Meet NIGEL.

SERIOUSLY, NIGEL REALLLY NEEDS A HOME!!!!! Nigel is what our rescue is all about. After years with his original owner, he came into rescue when his owner moved to assisted living. Nigel had been the center of her world, and this was quite a change for him. What made it a little easier for his owner was knowing that Nigel would live out his life in a loving home.

This wonderful old guy has been in foster care for well over 2 years. He’s welcome to stay in his foster home (and we won’t take any shortcuts to place him), but he’d really LOVE a home of his own. Nigel turned 12 in January, and he does have a heart murmur. His last (and only) dental left him with no teeth; so his tongue hangs out, and he does drool. But, he’s a great companion dog!!!!

Nigel has no trouble eating kibble, and actually gets a little vocal about meals and snacks. He also LOVES to go for walks; he’s very friendly with people and other dogs when out and about. However, he’d prefer a home as an only dog. Although he maintains good behavior for a few weeks, he really doesn’t share attention well with other dogs. He might be ok in a family with more than two people; he might also be ok with a larger breed. But, really, he’d be great as the only dog in the house!!!!!

Independent during the day; well-mannered on an afternoon walk; and a companion by your side in the evening—he’s a perfect Cavalier! He’s good in his crate, and sleeps very nicely in his crate at night. He doesn’t require medications for his murmur at this time; but he does need frequent clean ups on his neck and chest because of the drooling. His ears are also stylishly short to stay clean. And, you’ll never have to pay for a dental.

If you are looking for a lovely companion to accompany you on daily strolls, Nigel is your man! If you want Nigel to join your family, and you live within easy driving distance of the San Francisco Bay Area, please fill out an application on line at www.cavalierrescuetrust.org. Then, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let me know you are interested in Nigel.
