BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF AND FOR YOUR PUPPY!!
Let's be honest with each other. Bringing in a new family member has to work 1000% or not at all. There are no half measures, no 'it'll get better' or anything like that. Total devotion and dedication is what is required for one of these little Cavaliers, after all, you are their new parents, so to speak. They will give you unreserved love and dedication all their lives, if you can't commit to this, even after you've taken this little one home, don't make yourself and the puppy miserable. Make the hard choice, bring that puppy back and let us rehome them. You'll both be better off. Every Cavalier is different, believe me, even in their own litter. We have the luxury of seeing them develop, sometimes we see characteristics that you may overlook. Patience is key to their development, constant patience, and consider when an 'accident' occurs, it is YOUR fault, after all, the puppy is learning, much as a child would learn. If you have had little ones, you know of what I refer.
Please consider what follows very seriously. Were you to want to adopt a child, is everyone automatically approved to adopt? To be honest, no they are not. One reason or the othercan or will stop an adoption of a child in its tracks, the reason could be trivial, or very important. The same applies here, you see, we owe it to these little ones careful consideration as to where they go. They didn't ask to be born, as they say, but since they are born, we OWE it to them to locate the best possible home for them. That being said, we do reserve the right to terminate, at our sole discretion the adoption of any Cavalier from our kennel. Money is not the issue ever. Our adoption fee is fair, so just because a family or couple shows up, check or cash in hand, it doesn't necessarily mean a puppy/adult will go home with you. It is about the puppy or adult FIRST and FOREMOST, secondarily about the prospective family or couple.
Consider certain factors such as your own personal health, how much time will you be at work and away from a helpless puppy. We're all getting older, and if you think you can keep up with a 10 week old puppy and you yourself are in bad health, guess again. They are quick, will get underfoot, and could cause you to take a tumble, perhaps hurting yourself, or them, or both of you. When they are little and just coming home, their little bladders just don't hold too much, they depend on your presence, and when you're not there, they can panic, and be traumatized being alone for a lengthy time. An ideal home is one where the childen are over 6 years old, a retired couple, a couple with grown children. You get the point. Ideally, every home would have a Cavalier in it, but it is not so.
