What is your pets name, breed and age?
Rebel is a mixed breed, we are pretty sure she is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel cross Pomeranian. She will be 10 years young in November 2017.
How would you describe their personality?
Rebel is fun, loving, well behaved, playful, affectionate, friendly, smart and loves to be the centre of attention.
Do they have a favorite treat or toy?
Rebel loves dehydrated crunchy chicken feet as an occasional treat and enjoys to play fetch with any of her small squeaky toys.
What is their best trick?
It was easy to train Rebel, on command she will get a toy, stand up, clap hands, shake hands, turn around, lay down, stay and play dead when you say bang.
Any advice to someone looking at getting a pet of a similar breed?
We found Rebel to be the perfect dog growing up from a puppy in a family with 2 young teenagers and 2 cats. Rebel enjoys playing with the newest addition of a now 15 month old beagle. Rebel is a great all-rounder dog, she plays, she snuggles and is a great watch dog. As with any breed of dog be prepared for the long term care and unexpected expenses that come along with owning a dog. Early on Rebel developed skin allergies and ear infections that were resolved by changing her to a grain free diet. At 8 years old Rebel developed an autoimmune dry eye condition which requires expensive (around $100 a bottle) eye drops which she has in both eyes twice a day and 6 monthly visits to eye specialist. These conditions can happen to any dog of any age.
