#8831 Capoeira

Adopted
Medium-size, Female, Adult Labrador Retriever x Hound,
Capoeira is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. Capoeira is currently being fostered in Chantilly, VA.

I WILL BE AT THE ADOPTION EVENT AT THE ALEXANDRIA PET VALU ON SUNDAY, JAN. 26TH FROM 12-2PM. STOP BY TO MEET ME!

Hello There! My name is Capoeira, (kaa-puh-weh-ruh) and I arrived on January 17 with some other lucky dogs on the OPH Fitness Transport. I am a lab mix, about 45 pounds and 4 years young. I am medium energy and enjoy walks, running and exploring in the yard I like everyone I have met so far, both other dogs and humans! I am very sweet and well behaved. I’ve been good in my crate at night and seem to be house trained. I am not a barker and do enjoy a cuddle and belly rubs. I sit nicely for a treat and am a smart gal who is looking forward to learning more. Did you know Capoeira is a Brazilian dance that uses martial arts kicks and chops movements? I don't think I can quite do that but I can be a great companion for you while you dance! Let’s meet soon!

I'm spayed and up to date on my vaccines and monthly preventatives. Check back here for more updates as I settle in.

****************************************************
This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. The dog was treated for the disease prior to transport north. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable. Read more about heartworm disease here here

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.
