Cavachon Characteristics

The Cavachon is an adorably fuzzy hybrid – a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise. As both of their parent breeds, they’re affectionate, smart, and even spunky. They love to play and spend time with their families. Since they’re quite small, they adapt well to any kind of indoor living, including apartments. 

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Willful

A breed of many names, the Cavachon also goes by the Cavalier-Bichon or Bichon-King Charles. Standing about 12-13 inches at the shoulder and weighing anywhere between 15-35 pounds, the Cavachon is a perfect lap-sized companion. These dogs are very mild-mannered and can acclimate to homes with children or pets with ease.  
Available in an assortment of coats, the Cavachon can be found in apricot, black, white, and more. Their coats tend to grow to a medium length and are usually good for people who suffer from allergies. They're also relatively easy to groom, and only require a brushing every 7-10 days. 
Cavachons want nothing more than to please their owners, and will likely follow you from room to room. They only require a moderate amount of exercise and are often more focused on the attention they receive from their owner than the amount of time they get to spend at the dog park.
 
They adapt to almost any home that will love them and will give lots of love and affection in return.
 

How dog-friendly is Alabama?

Alabamans are dog-lovers! The state has high dog ownership and several pet-friendly destinations. However, it doesn’t rank well compared to other states when it comes to animal cruelty laws and protections. We hope to see some changes to that soon! 

 

Here’s what you should know about Alabama.

 

Two major studies for pet-friendliness ranked Alabama in the lower half of all 50 states. Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group, ranked Alabama 43rd. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, ranked it slightly higher at 31st in the country.

 

Both studies evaluated all 50 states by several factors, including animal welfare laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, dog parks, and hiking trails. In both studies, the state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.

Are cities in Alabama pet-friendly?

Yes! A study by Wallethub reviewed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Alabama’s biggest city stacked up.

Birmingham

Birmingham was ranked 5th overall of all 100 cities! This pet-friendly city scored 9th in pet budget, 15th in pet health and wellness, and 77th in outdoor pet-friendliness. We blame the heat and humidity for the last ranking, but Birmingham does have beautiful parks and outdoor space.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Alabama

BringFido lists Alabama as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1,700 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels.

 

Forty-seven percent of Alabama residents own a dog. This is above the national dog ownership rate of 40%. 

 

What kinds of dogs do Alabamans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Alabama are Labradors, Basset Hounds, and Beagles. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Retrievers, and Collies. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Alabama

Alabama saved 75,761 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 16,825 animals were reported killed over this same period. 

Thirty-one out of 93 of the animal shelters within Alabama are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 74%. This is pretty far below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Again, animal protection is an area where Alabama can definitely improve.
