In 2001 we bought our first lil girl Maggie from Marie. We had seen the likes of Michael Wolf's puppy mill in PA and were greatly impressed with Marie. This precious Maggie of mine has her issues which are all specific to the breed. Unfortunately. The next year we drove back to Marie from MD to pick up Benny. He's our live wire. Maggie & Benny had one liter of 4 beautiful pups before my husband passed. Benny has no health issues. When one purchases a Cavalier you must be prepared for the health issues specific to the breed. Research for possible health issues with ANY baby you want to purchase, then check out your breeder. Marie was excellent with us. Remember it's your responsibility to check out everything before making your purchase of a new family member.
