WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Ahoy, matey! Meet Pirate, a handsome 3-year-old Labrador mix. Like most Labs, Pirate is friendly and playful with dogs and people, although he is also calm enough to enjoy just hanging out with his person, according to Washington Animal Rescue League staff.

Pirate came to the Washington Animal Rescue League from South Carolina, where, unfortunately, he was infected with heartworm. He is currently undergoing treatment and will be fit as a fiddle soon, but until his treatment is complete, his activity must be restricted.

:Like many human beings, Pirate suffers from alopecia, which has caused some embarrassing hair loss. This cosmetic condition has already begun to improve since he began treatment at WARL and should continue to do so, with Pirate's fur growing back nicely.

Don't let this great dog get away! Stop by the Washington Animal Rescue League soon.

Visit warl.org for details on how to adopt Pirate.
