We have shared our home with Cavaliers for over 40 years. We are natives of Yorkshire in
Northern England and it was there that we got our first Cavaliers. When we moved to the USA in the
1990s, we brought all of our dogs with us, and they provided the foundation for the continuation of our
Although we bought our first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in 1975, it wasn't until 1989 that we started
exhibiting, and registered our kennel affix, Greenabella Cavaliers. Once we started to show our dogs in the
ring, we started breeding to improve our line, and continue to do so to the present time.

This beautiful portrait of two of our original Cavaliers was commissioned by us in 1990. It has since been
used as the illustration on cards and gifts.
These two lovely girls, Rosie and Annie, were six months and nine months old when this was painted.
Both of these girls figure in our pedigrees and are behind many of our Cavaliers of today.
After a friend alerted us to the fact that there was a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a local ASPCA shelter,
we dashed across there and arranged to adopt her.
At the time Bailey was grossly overweight and had a severe case of periodontal disease. After a
thorough examination by our veterinary surgeon, she had 12 teeth removed and was then put on a course of treatment
to deal with the bacterial infection. She recovered completely and spent the rest of her life with us
as a happy member of our family.
Bessie was found wandering at a busy traffic intersection - frightened, nervous and in poor condition. She
was taken to the local pound from where she was collected by one of the Cavalier Rescue
coordinators. She had been wandering for some time and needed 6 baths before she was clean and
We took her in to foster her while she was brought back to good health and to recover from being spayed.
By the time she had reached her ideal weight, we had become so attached to her that we adopted her!
Having spent many years working with the Cavalier Club Rescue organizations we are very much aware of the need
to take responsibility for our own puppies throughout their lifetimes.
We are very careful in our choice of 'forever' homes when we do rehome a puppy, and to this end we ask that
anyone interested in adopting one of our dogs complete the application form under the "Puppies" page on this site.
