A lovely lady recently got in touch with me – her beautiful Cavapoo/Cavoodle (King Charles Cavalier x Toy Poodle) Ellie passed away after a host of health issues and she is trying to get in touch with the owners of Ellie’s litter mates. A bit more information…
Ellie was born 22 April 2007 to Flicka, a ruby King Charles Cavalier and Toby, an apricot Toy Poodle to a breeder in Gravesend in Kent.
In 2011 (aged 4) Ellie was diagnosed with Syringomyelia. In 2012 Ellie was diagnosed with Coronoid Process Disease. In 2013 Ellie was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer. On 22 May 2013 Ellie sadly passed away aged just 6. Her owner is heartbroken.
This breeder claims to be a hobby breeder but there are many reports online that she actually has 16 dogs and an average of three litters for sale at any given time. People who have purchased her dogs have reported health problems including, though not limited, to Hip Dysplasia, Keratoconjunctivtis Sicca, Syringomyelia, Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis, Luxating Patellas, Osteo Arthritis, Coronoid process disease, Thyroid Cancer.
For legal reasons I cannot refer to the breeder by name but if any of my followers / reader would like to speak to Ellie’s owner regarding their own experiences please feel free to get in touch. She knows that two of Ellie’s littermates went to live in the Devon area.
Thank you for reading,
