Mr Slate is an 8-year old male ex-breeding Cavalier King Charles who is being fostered in Cardiff, South Wales. He is a gorgeous little cuddle monster who’s just bursting with joy and affection. Mr Slate will make someone a very loving pet. Mr Slate loves being cuddled by people big and small. In fact, he is great with small children as long as they are respectful of him. When out on walkies, he tends to follow passing strangers (but that’s only because he loves humans) so you must keep an eye on him in the beginning.
Mr Slate is a very social dog and will happily walk up to other dogs for a sniff. But if they growl at him, he will heed the warning and back away. As an ex-breeder he will only be rehomed where there is another dog for company. Unfortunately Mr Slate will bark at cats and try to chase them. Mr Slate had a few toilet accidents when he first arrived, but he quickly copied the other dogs’ toilet behaviour and taught himself to go outside. His adopters should be prepared for accidents as he settles in his new home and gets used to a new routine. He loves going out for walks (on or off the lead) and can be left on his own for a few hours at a time. He sleeps peacefully downstairs without any fuss with another dog for company.
Mr Slate is a joy to go walkies with. He is friendly with other dogs and is good both on or off the lead and his recall is very good. He is very intelligent and will quickly learn a new name should his new owner wish to rename him. Mr Slate travels very well in the car and is not afraid of going to the vets. Mr Slate would love a home where his family are around for the majority of the day. He is looking for another dog for company but cannot live with cats. He is happy around respectful children. As he loves cuddles he needs a home where he can be next to his person on the sofa. He is a sociable little fellow and will make someone a very loyal and affectionate companion.
Mr Slate is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Cardiff, South Wales.
