Des or Desi (pronounced Dez or Dez-zee)
Desmond is a unique Ruby Abstract Cavapoo bred selectively for his near-Cavalier-like appearance and temperament! He is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and an F1 Cavapoo which makes Desmond 75% Cavalier and 25% Poodle. Desmond's influence will allow more Cavalier-like traits to be present in our puppies and bring a balance of temperament while being able to create a variety of Cavapoo fur types from straight to dream curls!
Desmond was acquired as a puppy and he is one of the last from the same line that produced our legendary stud, Amedeo. We are blessed to receive another puppy from this amazing line of Cavaliers and Cavapoos who share the same approximate timeline to when we started our journey with the Cavapoo. Both of Desmond's parents come from healthy and trusted lines.
Desmond's heart health will be verified via an ECG monitor prior to breeding.
