Desta is a unique Ruby Abstract Cavapoo bred selectively for her near-Cavalier-like appearance! She is a cross between our prize Cavalier King Charles Spaniel stud, Cabello, and our adoring F1 Cavapoo female, Daphne, which makes Desta 75% Cavalier and 25% Poodle. This makes her a unique F1B Cavapoo being that the Cavalier gene is more
dominant than that of the Poodle gene.
Desta will still be capable of producing puppies with a curlier coat when she is paired with
a Poodle to make a ratio similar to that of the F1 Cavapoo. The resulting offspring will
technically be 37.5% Cavalier and 62.5% Poodle when Desta is bred to a Poodle (we call
these F2B Mimic Cavapoos), but they will still look similar to the F1 Cavapoo even though there is a smidgen more Poodle in the ratio. Or Desta can be bred to our Cavapoo stud,
Arlo, for a very unique blend of Cavapoo that will be a ratio of 50.5% Cavalier and
49.5% Poodle for the perfect mixture that will melt your heart!
Desta was born and raised here at Pleasant Meadows. She is a full daughter of Daphne and Cabello. Her mother Daphne is one of the 5 daughters we were able to keep from our legendary Poodle stud Tobi (now retired), and Desta's father Cabello is our prize
Cavalier who has 5 champions in his 5 generation AKC pedigree!
Desta's heart health will be verified via an ECG monitor prior to breeding.

PRA-prcd: Cleared by Parentage
Desta's mom, Daphne, tested negative for PRA-prcd (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). And the Cavalier King
Charles Spaniel does not carry for PRA-prcd and so it's unnecessary to test her father, Cabello. This
means that Desta is PRA-prcd cleared by parentage and can be bred to any of our males
and have ZERO chance of PRA-prcd showing up in her puppies.
