#3948 Whoopi 2016 Cara Achterberg

Large-size, Female, Adult Bloodhound,

Whoopi is a gorgeous 5 year old female bloodhound who weighs 72 lbs..

True to her breed, she loves to follow a good scent and will take you on endless hikes, has a beautiful (loud) bay, and is a gentle giant.

Whoopi is housebroken and crate-trained. She knows basic commands (sit, down, stay, come). She loves attention and is always ready for a snuggle or a good ear rub. She does well with other dogs and children, and has a tendency to chase cats. She is a sweet, intelligent dog who is eager to please, but takes up a lot of space.

Whoopi needs regular exercise and room to run. She is NOT an apartment pet.

Her foster mom writes a blog about fostering and you can see more pictures and video of Whoopi at

Whoopi 2016 Cara Achterberg is up-to-date on her vaccinations and has been spayed. Whoopi 2016 Cara Achterberg is currently being fostered in Maurertown, VA.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
