Cava-Lon Characteristics

The Cava-lon is an adorable hybrid dog mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Papillon. The Cava-lon is a cheerful and playful friend to children and other animals, making them a great family companion. They’re known for their long, silky coats and will require regular brushing to keep from getting matted.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability

The Cava-lon are small dogs weighing up to 18 pounds and are usually black, brown, white, silver, red, or black and tan. Because of their small size, a bit of obedience training will provide you with a happy and manageable apartment companion. Early socialization is important to teach these dogs how to behave with larger dogs and other animals.

It is important to note that some dogs who weigh less than ten pounds believe they are much bigger than they actually are, and are not afraid to challenge larger dogs.  To help ensure your Cava-lon doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels.  If you plan on taking your Cava-lon to a dog park, keep a constant eye on your dog; while uncommon, it's not unheard of for small dogs to be viewed as prey for untrained larger breeds.

These dogs are also well suited for apartment life because they only require a minimal amount of exercise. This can usually be accomplished through a brisk walk or 20-30 minutes of playtime.  Ensuring your Cava-lon gets enough exercise is important to prevent bad behavior within the household as well as preventing unnecessary weight gain.  

Cava-lons are wonderfully playful, responsive, smart, and cheerful. A wonderful companion for anyone.

How dog-friendly is Mississippi?

Mississippi has a ton of pet owners and dog lovers in the state! But a few factors consistently put Mississippi in the bottom or middle of the pack compared to the most pet-friendly states. The main issue is Mississippi’s somewhat lax approach to animal welfare laws. 


Animal advocacy and shelter group Pawsafe ranks Mississippi 48th overall for pet-friendliness. Definitely some room for improvement! 


They arrived at their state ranking through a study evaluating each of the 50 states by important factors like animal cruelty restrictions, pet services, pet-friendly accommodations, and more. As we mentioned, the main issue for Mississippi is its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


A separate study by review site Safewise ranks Mississippi as 32nd. A little bit better! However, if we combine the two studies, Mississippi still ranks towards the bottom of the pack.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Mississippi

Mississippi saved 41,290 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 5,417 animals were killed over this same period. 


Nineteen out of 64 of the animal shelters within Mississippi are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, but the state has an above-average save rate of 80%. This is well short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. We hope to see some improvement in these numbers in the coming years!
