Joy & Doug Smith
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Testimonials
After more than a year of research and contemplation, our family drove to Joy’s house to visit her Cavaliers. We were trying to decide whether a puppy would fit into our chaotic family because our children are still quite young (ages 6, 4, and 2).
We took our two youngest children to see how the personalities matched up. Well, as soon as we sat down inside Joy’s house, our little lover pup “Lucy” inquisitively stepped out of her doggy bed where she was cuddled up with her mother, and walked right into the arms of our 2 year old! What an amazing and brave little puppy! At 4 months of age, Lucy had been conditioned so well to be with little children that Lucy was able to slide right into our hectic household without any stress or concern.
Lucy loves to ride in the van to pick up our 6 year old from school…her tail wags so fast when she sees him and it brings a thrill to my little boy’s face every time he sees it. She loves going to “camp out” at Grandma and Grandpa’s house whenever she can as well! Everyone is in love with this dog!
can’t say enough positive things about how Joy’s method of breeding and
conditioning her pups has resulted in an amazing puppy experience for
our large family! Lucy is a wonderful, healthy, even
tempered, amazing fluffy ball of love. I can’t imagine our
family without her. She is my fourth child! Thank
you Joy for making our family complete!
My husband and I had some special needs this time in purchasing our third Cavalier. We are older and due to my husband's ambulation issues we needed an older dog. Joy knew how well our first two girls were loved and cared for that she called us a few weeks later and offered her beloved "Bodie", which she had recenlty retired from breeding. We are a family again and truly grateful for the kindness shown to us during this experience.
A nurturing environment breeds a loving dog - that is why PupJoy Cavaliers sets such a high "benchmark" for their breeding program.

Belle celebrated her 1st birthday on Thanksgiving day and she continues to bring joy and happiness to me and Blisse (8 year old Cavalier) and everyone else she meets. She has a remarkable personality and can charm even the toughest non-doggy folks. She is healthy, full of energy, travels very well, enjoys other dogs, and has a special affection for all people of all ages. I compliment you on your breeding standards and in particular, your care and attention to socializing the puppies as I believe your efforts contributed greatly to her happy personality.
We were introduced to Joy through friends who
own a King
Charles Cavalier dog that we absolutely loved the disposition
We purchased a puppy from Joy in April, 2009, after the loss of our
then dog. We could not be MORE happy with our KCC
disposition. She is the best companion we could ask for and
extremely loving and enjoys anyone that comes around. She
to go boating and camping, and just plain being around
She is also great with kids. My husband and I are constantly
commenting to each other about how glad we are that we got her, and
what a joy she has brought to our house with her corky
personality. We would absolutely recommend
puppy from Joy and would do so again.

We just love our King Charles Cavalier girl. We had many complements on how cute and friendly she is. We wanted a dog but was never sure how to find a good breeder. We found PupJoy Cavaliers and when we went to visit were impressed. All the dogs live in their home as part of the family. There is a doggy door where the dogs and puppies can go outside whenever they need too. Plenty of room for them to run and play.
The home is clean and all the dogs were friendly and in good health. Joy is a very nice person to work with and was helpful with papers and shots. We would highly recommend PupJoy Cavaliers to anyone and have done so many times.

We saw an ad for PupJoy Cavaliers and I called on it. Joy was kind enough to tell me she had two pups left, both females which was what I was looking for. She also directed us to her website. A couple of days later we went up near her home Christmas shopping and I called her and arranged to stop by for a visit.
We got to meet the mom and dad of the pups and Joy had all the lineage and papers needed for us to adopt. The biggest problem was choosing which pup to take home. We settled on the smallest female who was a little timid and shy but I fell in love with her immediately and so we bought her. We named her Ginger before we even left Joys house and took her home with us that night.
It took my wife a little longer to fall in love with Ginger, about a day, by then we were both hooked and now we wonder what we ever done without a pet for so long. Ginger has grown to be somewhat independent but a loving family pet and she is clearly "my" dog and we seem to have this special relationship but she always has time to give my wife some attention. She was easy to house train, and she has become more socialize in crowds and around people. She loves little children and is a bundle of energy most of the time. We would highly recommend Joy Smith and PupJoy Cavaliers.
