About the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (CKCS), otherwise known as the Cavalier, is an affectionate and intelligent toy dog that gives endearing devotion to their owners. Cavaliers are not kennel dogs --- they are lap dogs, and are wonderful companions. The CKCSs want to love you and be loved, and to sleep in a soft bed - preferably your bed.

About 'Designer Dogs' ... and the Myth that they are Healthier
The findings from surveys performed by the late George A. Padgett, DVM, Veterinary Pathologist & Professor Emeritus, College of Veterinary Medicine, Michigan State University and author of Control of Canine Genetic Diseases: Mixed-breed dogs have more genetic diseases than purebred dogs. There are 215 known diseases in mixed breed dogs, with 71 percent of them having defective genes. The idea that a mixed-breed dog is likely to have less genetic diseases than a purebred is a misconception.
If you want a mixed-breed dog, please go to a rescue or the animal shelter.
There are wonderful mixed-breed dogs in rescue, waiting for loving homes!
We support rescue. We do not believe in breeding 'designer dogs'!
