Don't let Kafia's serious face fool you - you won't find a sweeter girl than this 2 year old Lab and Hound mix. She has gorgeous sleek black fur with oreo cookie white and black freckling on her chest and paws. She will lay her head in your lap and just melt your heart. Kafia came to Labs and More with a little surprise. It turns out she was a mama-to-be and she was just the most wonderful mother to her puppies who have since been adopted. Now it's this very special girl's turn.

Kafia has wonderful house manners and doesn't need to be crated when you leave. Her preferred spot is taking a snooze on the couch until you come home. She takes some time to warm up in new situations and around new people, but with time will make herself at home and in your heart. She would love a quiet home that doesn't smother her at first and allows her to come to you. Kafia enjoys being your work from home companion and settling down near you as you work or study. Her foster family has been introducing her to all San Diego has to offer from hikes in the park to working on her beach body. She is fostered with two dog-savvy children and is very gentle with them. She doesn't really play with toys or have much interest in playing with other dogs although gets excited to see them on walks. She has lived with other dogs previously and made friends with dogs in the neighborhood but prefers calm, nonreactive dog friends and a slow, patient introduction to them. She would likely prefer to be the only dog in her forever home. She doesn't want to be your dog's new playmate and best friend and she does not like rambunctious, in-your-face dogs. She also thinks kitties are for chasing so will need a home with no cats. Kafia does have seizures, which are managed with daily medication, but it hasn't significantly impacted her quality of life, and since she's found the right dosage of medication, has not had any seizures. Her foster family says Kafia is truly a joy to have around and you can't go wrong with this sweetheart and easy keeper.
