RETIREE ADOPTION REQUIREMENTS

A RETIRED CAVALIER IS SIMPLY THAT, RETIRED.  HE/SHE IS NOT 'DEFECTIVE', UNHEALTHY OR ANY OF THE SORT.  IN FACT, THEY ARE VERY HEALTHY, THEY SIMPLY HAVE REACHED A TIME IN THEIR LIVES THAT IT IS PRUDENT FOR THEM TO RETIRE, NORMALLY 5 YEARS FOR FEMALES, AND 7 YEARS FOR MALES.  SOMETIMES RETIREMENT HAPPENS EARLIER, EITHER HE/SHE IS NOT INTERESTED IN BREEDING WHEN THE TIME COMES, HAS ONE OR THE OTHER CONDITION THAT PREVENTS BREEDING, FEMALE HAS A MISCARRIAGE, MALE IS NOT INTERESTED, ETC.  IT IS ALWAYS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE 'RETIREE', THEREFORE IT IS INCUMBENT UPON US AS THEIR BREEDER TO SECURE THEM A GREAT FOREVER HOME.  SIMPLE AS THAT.  THERE ARE THE SAME REQUIREMENTS FOR ADOPTION FOR A RETIREE AS FOR A 10-12 WEEK OLD PUPPY, PLUS ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS:

1.  YOU MUST VISIT THEM IN OUR HOME , FIRST THEY MUST LIKE YOU, SECONDLY WE MUST LIKE YOU, AND THIRDLY YOU MUST LIKE US BACK.  WE ARE AND  HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR HEALTH AND WELL BEING FOR HOWEVER MANY YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN WITH US, THIS IS THE ONLY HOME THEY HAVE EVER KNOWN.  THEIR TRANSITION TO THEIR NEW HOME MUST BE WITHOUT A DOUBT A TRANSITION THEY WOULD BE HAPPY WITH.  PLEASE UNDERSTAND, IT IS ABOUT THE 'RETIREE' FIRST AND FOREMOST.  

2.  THEIR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT, THEIR HAPPINESS AND COMFORT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT.  

3.  AT NO TIME, MAY YOU SURRENDER THIS DOG TO ANYONE EXCEPT US.  IF FOR SOME REASON YOU CAN NO LONGER CARE FOR THIS CAVALIER, HE/SHE WILL COME BACK TO US, NO HARM, NO FOUL.  WE MUST ALWAYS KNOW WHERE OUR RETIREE IS AT ALL TIMES.  THIS IS NOT AN OPTION.

4.  YOU MUST PLACE A DEPOSIT OF $300 EITHER THROUGH PAYPAL OR PERSONAL CHECK TO SECURE YOUR PLACE IN LINE TO ADOPT ONE OF OUR RETIREES.  IF THE ADOPTION FALLS THROUGH, EITHER BY YOUR CHOICE OR OURS, YOUR DEPOSIT WILL BE FULLY REFUNDED.  NO DEPOSIT, NO SELECTION.  THESE ARE WONDERFUL CREATURES, THEIR HAPPINESS IS FIRST.

FANTOM VAL'S CHARMING TREVOR

After you have made a selection of your puppy, comes the inevitable 'we can't wait to get our new puppy home', and for you as the new 'parents', it may seem like forever!!  But still this is a very important time for you and your new family member.  Come and visit them, let your new 'fur baby' get used to your voice, your scent, your touch.  We want to accomodate you as much as possible, but with feeding, bathing, grooming and taking our Cavaliers to the vet, we have to ask that you try if at all possible to schedule your visit on FRIDAY or SATURDAY between 11am and 4pm, allowing you time to start to develop a bond with your new little one.  If that is not a possibility due to work/life schedules, we will attempt to accomodate a different day, these bonding visits are very important to the puppy's comfort level with you, making their transition to you and your family so much easier.  We'll have an area set up in our living room with more than ample room to let them wander around and stretch their little legs and for you to play with and handle your new family member.
