Are you one of those paw lovers that goes “aww” every time you see a cute puppy? Well, I’m you sure are, since you have found yourself reading this article! Don’t worry, I can’t think straight whenever I see a cute pup either!
Now, I know you want to scroll down to see the cute Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixes, but let me just say a few brief, but cool, facts about the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog breed.
Carrying such a fancy name, the Cavalier King Charles is a small royal dog. It originates from the United Kingdom and its main task was to be a royal companion dog.
Soundness, combined with their curiosity, is what makes the Cavalier King Charles dog special.
One thing’s for sure – the Cavalier King Charles is an adorable pooch that gets under your skin quickly! It’s very devoted to its family and loved ones. Hence, I am pawsitive that these Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixes will undoubtedly inherit the same lovely-dovely characteristics.
Combining such a cute and well-tempered dog with another pure breed will surely result in wholesome crossbreeds!
Take a look for yourself!
Parent breeds: American Eskimo and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Meet the toy-sized cutie called a Cav-A-Mo!
A fantastic family pet, the Cav-A-Mo is a sound pup that doesn’t exhibit any undesirable behaviors like barking, chasing, or nibbling. They don’t react negatively to strangers, and they get along well with children and both small and large canines.
The Cav-A-Mo pup brings joy to everyone around it. It is a fun and loyal hybrid pooch that is always ready to have some fun in the sun!
Parent breeds: Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
A Cavachon’s coat may inherit the Bichon’s hypoallergenic, low-shedding characteristics, even though its other parent breed isn’t considered hypoallergenic. If you are looking for a small family dog with a low-shedding coat, the Cavachon is the perfect pick!
The color the Cavachon’s coat will be is up to both the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon colors. Some may inherit a solid, pure white color, while other Cavachons inherit blenheim, ruby, black and tan, or a tri-color pattern.
Parent breeds: Poodle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
This small pooch is all your heart (and allergies) desire! If you are looking for a hypoallergenic designer dog, the Cavapoo is a great choice.
However, not all Cavapoo generations inherit a hypoallergenic coat. Among all the Cavapoo generations, I believe that the one that is favored the most is the F1B Cavapoo.
In general, all Cavapoos are sound dogs that get along well with all family members – even the four-legged ones! They are calm, laid-back canines. Because of their high intelligence and eagerness to please, Cavapoos are very trainable and active pups.
Parent breeds: Labrador Retriever and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Most families and single dog lovers completely fall for the Cavador’s amiable and sweet nature. The Cavador inherits its affectionate nature from the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent, and its outgoing side from the Labrador Retriever.
Cavadors typically inherit straight, dense coats that range in length from short to medium. The cutest thing I find about Cavadors is that they inherit beautiful brown puppy eyes.
Although Cavadors usually inherit coat colors that are more of a cream or red tone, they can also take on Labrador Retriever colors, such as yellow, black, or brown. Their floppy ears may have wavy, feathered fur if they lean more towards the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent.
Parent breeds: Pug and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Pugalier is a small dog whose brachycephalic Pug parent’s traits are corrected into a longer muzzle. Besides that, Pugaliers are incredibly affectionate and friendly – just like their parent breeds!
Inheriting either the Pug’s coat colors or the Cavalier’s, the Pugalier requires little upkeep. All you have to do is brush its coat (to help reduce shedding) and make sure its skin folds are cleaned regularly.
Parent breeds: Chihuahua and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Here’s a small mixed breed for you that also goes by the names Cavachi and Chivalier. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniels’s floppy ears and Chihuahua’s big eyes make the Chilier an interesting-looking designer dog.
The Chilier has a very lovely coat. Depending on the parents’ traits found in the puppies, it can be straight and short or silky and long.
The Chilier is a lovely and cuddly family dog that easily fits into any setting – big or small! If you’re looking for a lapdog, the Chilier is the perfect pick. However, due to the fact that Chihuahuas are infamous for being aggressive, the Chilier may acquire the majority of their traits.
7. Golden Cavalier
Parent breeds: Golden Retriever and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
For starters, the Golden Cavalier inherits the cutest floppy ears from, well, both parents! However, its ears are a bit bigger than the Golden Retrievers, and fluffier!
The Golden Cavalier inherits beautiful shades of solid colors such as white, gold, yellow, red, and cream. In addition to its incredibly gorgeous coat colors, the Golden Cavalier brings the joie de vivre and trainability of both the parent breeds.

Parent breeds: Jack Russell Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
At first glance, the Cav-A-Jack might be a crossbreed from two completely different dog breeds. I mean, how does a hunting dog get mixed with a companion dog? Well, the Cav-A-Jack is here to prove to you that it is possible.
The sound nature of its Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent corresponds to a Cav-A-Jack’s cuddly and affectionate side. Thanks to the Jack Russell Terrier parentage, the Cav-A-Jack is an energetic puppy too.
Considering the fact that the Jack Russell Terrier’s lifespan is a few years longer than the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel’s, the Cav-A-Jack may live for up to 14 years.
Parent breeds: Japanese Chin and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
If you’re looking for a fierce watchdog, you might as well scroll down, because the Cavachin is far from that! However, the Cavachin is the most affectionate lapdog and has a spunky attitude that you will love!
The Cavachin is a fluffy mixed breed, so you might want to consider investing in a good dog brush! All Cavachins I have seen have inherited beautiful feathery coats that range from black, sable, brown, white, fawn, to red colors.
Although known as a relatively healthy mixed breed, the Cavachin is prone to health problems that it inherits from its parent breeds. These health problems include patellar luxation, obesity, and elbow and hip dysplasia. Besides congenital health problems, being a small dog, the Cavachin can get easily injured.
Parent breeds: Pomeranian and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Watch out, here comes the Cavapom!
With a silky coat and compact body size, the Cavapom is the star of the show. Having fabulous parents in the Pomeranian dog and the gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog, the Cavapom is destined to inherit beautiful traits.
Even though the Cavapom is a small dog, it is an excellent watchdog that will let you know if it senses something fishy. Also, because the Cavapom is a small dog, it should be monitored around small children.
You’d be surprised to know that the Cavapom goes crazy for small animals! So, you might consider obedience and leash training from an early age for this breed.
Parent breeds: Australian Shepherd and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
What makes the Aussalier mixed breed dog stand out are its many inherited coat colors. I mean, mixing a merle Australian Shepherd parent often results in beautiful merle Aussalier puppies! How gorgeous!
Besides that, the Aussalier is a playful pooch that requires a lot of activity. And no wonder – it takes its energy levels from the Aussie parent. This is what first-time Aussalier owners must take into consideration. Additionally, the Aussalier can live for up to 15 years. That means 15 years of cuddles, playtime, and endless love!
12. King Charles Yorkie
Parent breeds: Yorkshire Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Both female and male Yorkshire Terriers are very small dogs — but with very big personalities! You can call the King Charles Yorkie a CavaYorkie or the Yorkalier. It is best to describe the King Charles Yorkie as an affectionate, intelligent, playful, and curious dog.
Even though a King Charles Yorkie’s energy levels might be over the roof sometimes, this hybrid dog likes to take it slow. It enjoys frequent but short walks with its favorite human.
The King Charles Yorkie inherits a long, silky coat that requires regular grooming.

Parent breeds: Scottish Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Intelligent, fun-loving, and affectionate, you can’t say no to a Cavottish pup. The Cavottish steals everyone‘s hearts with its bubbly temperament!
Usually colored black, the Cavottish‘s coat is a medium length. Its undercoat is soft, while its outercoat gets a bit coarse.
As for its personality, the Cavottish might inherit some stubborn traits from its Scottish Terrier parent, making this pooch a bit hard to train. However, if you start with early socialization and training, the Cavottish will be the family‘s favorite!
Parent breeds: American/English Cocker Spaniel and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Due to the fact that they are so affectionate, the Cockaliers may suffer from separation anxiety if they are left alone for too long. Some Cockaliers may cry if you leave them alone for more than fifteen minutes!
Not only is the Cockalier a beautiful designer dog with a silky, soft coat, but it is also an affectionate family dog. There is no way that anyone can resist a Cockalier!
Overall, the Cockalier gets along well with everyone and it will want to snuggle by your side all the time!
Parent breeds: Papillon and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Depending on which parent a Cava-Lon takes after, its appearance can vary. You can recognize this Papillon Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix by its long ears, which are pointed upwards, and its bulgy, dark eyes.
The best thing about a Cava-lon’s appearance is that it inherits the Papillon’s trademark – its “butterfly” ears. With coat colors that vary from black, brown, red, tan, and white, the Cava-lon is a funky looking pooch.
Cava-lons are normally outgoing dogs, since they derive from a companion lapdog. The Cava-lon enjoys spending time with its human family. Although it inherits a pretty laid-back temperament, the Cava-lon can be a barker. Most owners describe owning a Cava-lon as being used to having your dog bark at nothing or barking when greeting strangers.
16. King Schnauzer

Parent breeds: Schnauzer and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
If you think its name sounds cool, you should see the King Schnauzer’s beard and mustache. The Standard King Schnauzer is sure to inherit the signature, wise-looking beard.
The Schnauzer‘s hypoallergenic coat properties can be passed on to the King Schnauzer mix puppy. As for its size, when compared to a Mini King Schnauzer, the King Schnauzer is a small to medium-sized dog.
As far as its personality goes, the King Schnauzer is a great adventure dog and an affectionate cuddle buddy. It will do its best to protect the household, so you can be sure that the King Schnauzer will make a great watchdog.

Parent breeds: Pekingese and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Even though it appears small, the Pekingese is a medium-sized dog full of energy. As the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a laid-back pooch, the Pekalier inherits medium energy levels.
The Pekalier is a small dog with floppy ears and luscious locks! Depending on which parent it leans more towards, the Pekalier can inherit a wavy or a straight coat. The Pekalier’s silky and soft coat requires regular grooming and pampering.
Due to the fact that the Pekalier is a small dog, it’s perfect for singles or seniors. Families with small children often worry about both the Pekalier and the child getting hurt. Since it is a small dog, a child might unintentionally hurt it, leading to a bite reaction.
18. Frenchie Cavalier

Parent breeds: French Bulldog and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Hitting a full doggie bingo, the Frenchie Cavalier makes it to the top on the list of lovely but goofy hybrid pups that are great for any kind of activity. A Frenchie Cavalier’s pleasing personality makes them a great pooch for relaxing on the couch or going out to social events.
The Frenchie Cavalier will inherit the Frenchie’s bulgy eyes and King Charles Spaniel’s variety of coat colors. Being a fun-loving companion dog, the Frenchie Cavalier is great for first-time dog owners.
However, French Bulldogs are known to inherit canine obesity, so it’s best to keep a track of the diet and overall health condition of your Frenchie Cavalier.

Parent breeds: Maltese and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Meet the Cav-A-Malt, a spunky pup with a specific personality. The Cav-A-Malt derives from two small companion dogs, making it the perfect lap-warmer and cuddler.
It often goes by the name Maltalier, and dog lovers sometimes come up with cuter nicknames. The Cav-A-Malt is relatively new to the designer dog scene. It has appearance characteristics from both of its parent breeds — a curly to wavy coat, fluffy long ears, and dark brown eyes.
Although we often see brown and cream Cav-A-Malts, this crossbreed can inherit any shade of Maltese coat colors. Perhaps the most frequent Cav-A-Malt coat combination is white with light brown ears.
20. Cava Inu
Photo from: @iris_the_cava_inu
Parent breeds: Shiba Inu and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
What I find ultra cute about some Cava Inus, is that they inherit two tanned dots right above their eyes, depending on the Shiba Inu coat color. Other than that, the Cava Inu also inherits an outgoing personality.
When I first saw this interesting mix, I thought to myself, how is it possible to mix an energetic freespirit like the Shiba Inu with an affectionate Cavalier King Charles Spaniel?
But, it definitely is! And let me tell you, the Cava Inu makes a very interesting pup. No wonder, because Shiba Inu mixes make really unique hybrid dogs.
It is not necessarily a people pleaser, but the Cava Inu brings fun wherever it goes. It can also inherit a somewhat stubborn side from its Shiba Inu parent. This potential escape artist enjoys cuddling and might seem needy at times.
Parent breeds: Shih Tzu and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Cava-Tzus are delicate and small, yet they have a charming nature and a sassy attitude that is just too adorable to resist. For those wondering how small a Cava-Tzu is, we’re talking about a toy for a small dog breed.
The Cava-Tzu is covered in a thick, but soft and silky coat. It might also inherit a longer coat. Their coat is often white with brown, red, tan, or black spots covering their eyes and ears. Its appearance is as cute as its personality — the Cava-Tzu is a lovely family dog that will give you lots of kisses and cuddles!
We see purebred Shih Tzus suffering from Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome. However, the Cava-Tzu mix is almost clear from this health problem, because cross breeding has helped to lower the risk of its development.
22. King Wheaten
Parent breeds: Wheaten Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Meet the King Wheaten, a happy little dog with a remarkable personality.
The King Wheaten is a well-balanced designer dog, combining hunting and companion traits from its parent breeds. It has the most unique coat color — the King Wheaten is a mix of white and yellow shades, with a unique gray hue. Its hazel colored eyes are the King Wheaten’s most mesmerizing physical feature.
Besides its fun looks, the King Wheaten crossbreed is going to steal your heart with its fun-loving and affectionate attitude.
Parent breeds: Tibetan Spaniel and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Tibalier makes it to the top spot on the list of laid-back designer dogs. They are so affectionate that they might suffer from separation anxiety when their owners leave them for a while.
The Tibalier’s coat comes in a medium length, and its colors can vary from white, brown, and cream to fawn, sable, red, and tan. One specific appearance trait of the Tibalier is its fluffy, silky ears that fold downwards.
Another fun fact about the Tibalier pup is that it can live for up to 15 years, in some cases even more. It is a generally healthy mutt but has genetic predispositions for canine hip dysplasia (CHD), syringomyelia, and mitral valve dysplasia.
24. King Rat
Parent breeds: Rat Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
This designer dog always seemed very intriguing to me. While he is not the king of rodents, the King Rat is a mix between an easy-going Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a very active Rat Terrier dog. Overall, the King Rat is a long-living designer dog that fills its owner’s days with joy and laughs.
Being an energetic dog, the King Rat requires a lot of exercise and frequent outings, which makes it a pawsome pooch for active families. As for maintenance, the King Rat’s coat is medium in length and is quite easy to maintain, though it might shed moderately.

Weighing up to 20 pounds, the Mini King Schnauzer makes a great cuddle companion that you can take anywhere. It adapts very well to all environments and the Mini King Schnauzer is perfect for small living spaces. The Mini King may be prone to genetic health issues such as canine diabetes and pancreatitis.

26. King Pin
Parent breeds: Miniature Pinscher and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
All of these names with the word “king” in them sound really cool. And no, we‘re not talking about that supervillain called Kingpin. We‘re talking about a cool designer dog that carries the name King Pin!
The King Pin inherits the facial characteristics, as well as the wavy ears, of its Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent. Its body shape and structure remind us of its Miniature Pinscher parent.
The King Pin doesn‘t grow more than 13 inches in height. Being such a small dog, everyone around the King Pin must pay attention so that they don’t unintentionally hurt it. Therefore, the King Pin isn‘t the best dog for families with small children.
Other than that, the King Pin is a brave little fellow, full of love and affection towards its human pack!
Parent breeds: Havanese and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
You know about the Cuban’s signature dog breed — the Havanese, right? When you mix it with the British lapdog — the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, you get a hybrid dog called the Cavanese. You may be asking, why is this a popular dog?
The Cavanese is ever so popular because this designer dog inherits a favorable personality and coat traits. For starters, the Cavanese is a family dog that is obsessed with quality playtime and everyday walks. It is an overall active dog, but it likes to snuggle next to its owner and chill.
Besides an amazing personality, the Cavanese inherits a soft coat that is medium in length. Wavy and sometimes curly, the Cavanese’s coat requires daily maintenance.
Considering the Havanese’s life expectancy, the Cavanese mixed breed can live for up to 16 years!
Parent breeds: Dachshund and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
How can you go wrong with any Dachshund mix? Just take a look at the Dashalier — a wonderful designer dog that inherits the sausage body and short legs. Depending on which Dachshund is selected into the breeding program (long- or short-haired), the Dashalier can inherit either a long coat or a short one.
Having said that, the Dashalier’s coat is not very difficult to maintain. All it needs is regular brushing and it will be as shiny as ever.
Besides that, the Dashalier is an active dog that loves digging around. No wonder it’s a digger! Dashaliers are known to be very close to their owners, so they might develop separation anxiety.
Parent breeds: Lhasa Apso and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
I think it’s time for a unique Lhasa Apso mix, don’t you think?
The Lhasalier is a fun, well-rounded designer dog with the cutest appearance! It inherits a wavy to curly coat and a long mustache! The hair around its snout can be long or short, depending on which parent side the Lhasalier leans more towards.
Besides its dazzling looks, the Lhasalier is a great family dog that loves to follow its owners. There is nothing the Lhasalier won’t do for you! If you’re looking for a loyal and outgoing pooch, the Lhasalier might be just the dog for you.
Parent breeds: Beagle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Sniffing their way to victory, Beagles have become a very popular dog breed in both the U.S. and the entire world! Mix a Beagle with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and you get a Beaglier, which looks very similar to its parent breeds.
It seems that this doggie mix is a match made in heaven — the Beaglier inherits floppy ears, a square head shape, large puppy eyes, and a short muzzle like both parent breeds. It usually inherits the standard tri-color pattern of the Beagle parent.
The Beaglier is a lively pup that loves to go out on adventures. In general, the Beaglier is a people pleaser, but it can be aloof at times. Taking into consideration the Beagle’s lifespan, the Beaglier mix can live anywhere between 13 and 15 years.
Parent breeds: Basset Hound and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Due to the fact that European and American Basset Hounds don’t differ much from one another, they can both be parent breeds to the wonderful Basselier.
The Basselier is a combination of a medium and a small dog, which results in a short-looking dog with a sturdy body and floppy ears that are located on a compact head.
Basseliers are suitable for apartments or modest homes. They will like taking frequent naps because they don’t have a lot of energy. A Basselier’s health will benefit from daily walks.
32. King Cavrin

Parent breeds: Cairn Terrier and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The King Cavrin is a medium-energy dog that is small in size (it weighs up to 18 pounds). It inherits the ears of its CKCS parent, and face features from the Cairn Terrier. The King Cavrin is an affectionate family dog that greets and meets everyone it lays its puppy eyes on!
Unfortunately, this mixed breed is known to inherit health problems from the Cairn Terrier parent breed. With canine dilated cardiomyopathy being the King Cavrin’s biggest health threat, it’s best to take it to regular vet check-ups.
33. Crested Cavalier

Parent breeds: Chinese Crested Dog and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Chinese Crested dog is quite bald and the Crested Cavalier inherits these appearance traits. So, if you are a fan of odd-looking pooches, like I am, the Crested Cavalier is sure to spark your interests.
The Crested Cavalier will be a spotted dog breed because it inherits dark spots on its skin, just like its Crested dog parent!
Its butterfly ears, mixed with the bald parts of its body, make the Crested Cavalier both an oddball and a charming small dog. Due to the fact that both its parent breeds are prone to canine hypothyroidism, the Crested Cavalier will most likely inherit this health issue.
Parent breeds: Pembroke Welsh/Cardigan Corgi and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Most paw lovers notice that the Cava-Corgi gets zoomies more often than any other mixed breed! Being an excellent example of friendliness and energy, the Cava-Corgi is a fun companion to have around.
The Cava-Corgi can inherit any Corgi coat color, while it may retain the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel’s wavy, medium length coat.
Generally speaking, the Cava-Corgi is a great companion for singles. It might not get along well with small children. Socialization will probably be required to guarantee that the Cava-Corgi is cool with younger kids.
Parent breeds: Shetland Sheepdog and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cava-S is a small dog that is loyal to its family, but usually chooses just one person that it goes crazy for. The Cava-S is also very smart and trainable. You won’t have any problems teaching the Cava-S a trick because it will quickly pick anything up.
Although the Cava-S might seem like a combination of two opposite worlds, this hybrid dog rocks the Sheltie’s fun personality and the King Charles Spaniel’s cuddliness.

Parent breeds: Coton de Tulear and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavaton is a beautiful little pup, derived from two extremely soft parent breeds. On one side, we have the super fluffy Coton de Tulear parent and on the other, we have the silky Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent.
Many Cavalier King Charles Spaniel coat colors can be passed onto the Cavaton pups in the litter. A pro of owning a Cavaton lies in its easy to maintain coat.

Parent breeds: Brussels Griffon and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Brussalier is a very confident and bright designer dog. It is not your average small dog — the Brusslier has a lot going on. It’s energetic, fun, and loyal. But, at the same time, the Brussalier can be very stubborn and headstrong. Therefore, it is important to start socializing a Brussalier at a very early age.
Since both parent breeds are prone to a health issue called canine syringomyelia, the Brussalier is most likely to inherit it too.
38. Italian Cavalier Greyhound
Parent breeds: Italian Greyhound and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is pretty down-to-earth, as in – short, right? Now, mixing a Cavalier with the Italian Cavalier Greyhound usually results in a hybrid dog that surprisingly, leans more towards the Greyhound’s sleek characteristics.
Maybe this mix sounds strange, but the Italian Cavalier Greyhound (or the Cava-Hound) is a designer dog that proudly stands on long legs.
While Greyhounds and shedding go hand in hand, the Italian Cavalier Greyhound is a moderate shedder that requires regular grooming.
You won’t have to worry about days wasted on teaching your dog and getting no results because the Italian Cavalier Greyhound has the desire to please its owner, making this designer dog incredibly pleasant and simple to train.

Owning a Cavestie will make each new day more fun than the previous. An understandably appealing small dog, the Cavestie is a daring designer dog. Its affectionate and cocky personality make it a cuddle bug and a heroic superstar at the same time.
Being an outgoing little pooch, the Cavestie will always go where there’s fun. It loves to meet new people and new dog friends! The Cavestie is extremely devoted to its owner and it can learn new tricks quickly.
For families or couples seeking their first canine companion, the Cavestie dog is ideal.
40. Cavalier Collie
Parent breeds: Border Collie and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Last, but not least, we are adding some extreme brains into the mix. With its ability to learn very quickly, the Cavalier Collie makes an easily trainable pup. Its Border Collie parent is a wisecracker, a trait that is passed onto the Cavalier Collie, making it a know-it-all designer dog!
Besides its great personality traits, the Cavalier Collie inherits both the Cavalier’s and the Border Collie’s coat colors. So, it can be a very colorful pup!
Mental stimulation, obedience training, and daily activities are a must for the Cavalier Collie hybrid. But, in order to be effective, training sessions should be brief, entertaining, and motivating, considering that youngsters typically have short attention spans.
What Is A Good Breed To Mix With A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel?
While I am aware that most dog lovers are curious about what kind of dogs should be mixed with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, this frequently asked question does not have a straight answer.
A great canine mate to match the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel’s looks and personality is a purebred pooch of similar, or better yet, the same heritage. When I say heritage, I’m referring to the reason for breeding.
Here’s an example. The reason behind breeding the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was to produce a companion pooch that would warm the laps of royals. So, ideally, you should search for a similar lap dog breed to match the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The Pekingese, Maltese, Coton de Tulear, and other well-known lap dog breeds are perfect examples.
However, it’s not a big deal if two completely opposite dog breeds are mixed. As you may have noticed, many Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixes combine dogs that are polar opposites. But, they still work!
Let’s Wrap It Up
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel’s favorable personality traits, backed with their mesmerizing looks, have encouraged breeders to produce new designer dogs.
Healthy Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixes can only be developed with planned breeding programs that are of a high quality. So, as long as there are reputable breeders and reputable dog owners, the future of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixes is in safe hands!
However, if kennels, puppy mills, and backyard breeders continue cross breeding dogs without any knowledge and experience, there will be many unhealthy Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixes in need.
If you are thinking about purchasing, or even better, adopting a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mixed puppy, I honestly advise you to find trusted sources, like reputable breeders and reliable shelters.
