Looking for some ideas for a future puppy breed. I lost my last Cavalier last summer (and her brother the year before) Wonderful dogs! But I probably wont get another since I generally like to change so as not to compare. While my last dog’s back issues and autoimmune condition weren’t peculiar to the breed, I would worry more with another.
So here is what I want. Puppy. Probably female (to be spayed). Must be small. I have back problems myself and found with my 65# dog that it was difficult to bathe and care for him when he got old. Also my house is now set up for littles! I have a through-the-wall doggie door that is 16" tall.
Loved, loved loved the Cavalier temperament. So would like something similar in that regard. Prefer not excessive hair, but I can deal if needed. Not hyper or nervous. And no (hopefully) major health problems that breeders cant reliably test for.
