Yesterday I meet Sheila & her son Vincent who came to visit Charlie who we were looking to rehome after him being diagnosed with a low grade 2 heart murmer by a cardiologist vet. He is just over 5 & on the advice of the vet he has been neutered. After being used as a stud dog I felt it would be kinder for him to find a retirment home so he could chill out, enjoy life & not be around flirtatious girls reminding of his previous life. Sheila & Vincent after meeting Charlie took him for a walk & on their return had decided that they would love for Charlie to join their family. Charlie seemed to take an instant shine to them both as like me they are very much in love with this breed & lost their Obi just before Christmas who was a black & tan Cavalier boy.
Last night Sheila & Vincent stayed at a Bed & Breakfast & returned this morning to pick up Charlie to travel with them to his new home in Reading. Before they left we had a cup of tea together & Charlie obviously remembered them from the previous day & you could see he was already happy in their company. This has not been an easy decision to rehome Charlie as he is such a sweet dog that is very gentle natured & all round well behaved little man.
Sheila & Vincent are going to update me annually on his health & what he has been up to & if for what ever reason they could not keep him he is to return to us.
With meeting Sheila & Vincent also talking on the phone with Sheila & her daughter I have every confidence that Charlie is going to have a wonderful retirement with loads of love & fun.
Will look forward to updates of Charlie's, Sheila's & Vincent's adventures together.
