About This Project


Breed: Cavalier 

Age: 4 years 

Donation: £400


  • Vanessa MUST go to a home with resident dogs
  • Vanessa can live with calm children 6+


Background – Vanessa arrived in rescue from a breeding background and was very nervous so has spent some time in foster care so that we can understand her needs better and find her a perfect adoptive home.

Character – Initially, Vanessa was very nervous but she has been growing in confidence every day, in part thanks to the resident dogs in her foster home. Once settled, Vanessa is very playful – she also loves food (typical Cav!). A real snuggle bug, Vanessa loves to snuggle on the sofa and is very gentle.

Type of home – Vanessa is looking for a calm and patient adoptive home where she can have affectionate reassurance, but also space when she needs it. Vanessa has a crate den which she takes herself off to for some quiet time when she needs it, but she is never shut in and can come and go as she pleases. Vanessa loves going out for walks and also travels well in the car, as as her confidence grows would love to join in with more family adventures.

Dogs and Cats – Vanessa MUST live with other dogs and we will not consider any homes without canine companions as Vanessa needs reassurance from other dogs. Vanessa is not cat tested.

Specific needs – Vanessa has received all required vet care whilst with Dogs Friends, but does have a heart murmur which is sadly common for her breed. This doesn’t currently require any specialist care but adopters should be aware of this for the future.

Adopting – Please ensure you have read our ‘adopting’ page before applying. Applicants must be in Somerset or the immediate surrounding areas (Bristol, Bath etc).
