Dog Name: Homer *Available for our $200 Senior Fee*
Suspected Breed(s): Lemon Hound
Age: 8 years old
Weight: 62 lbs
Personality: Easygoing, funny, trainable, goofy, eager to please, friendly, gentle, quiet, calm, smart, affectionate
Observations with Dogs: Homer is good with other dogs. When on walks he can’t help but whine to go meet other pups, but then all this goofy boy does is take a quick sniff and move on!
Observations with Cats: Homer ignores the cat in his foster home and would prefer a cat that will ignore him instead of trying to play.
Observations with Kids: He is gentle with kids, but noise and commotion cause him anxiety, so a home without children would be best.
House Training Progress: No accidents
Crate Training Progress: Homer prefers not to be crated, but he is trusted to be uncrated in the house. In his current foster home, he sleeps on a dog bed in their bedroom.
Location: DC area foster home
Rescued From: Bladen County, NC
Additional Information: Looking for a long-eared goofball? Apply today to meet Homer! He is a handsome boy who loves a good scent and a good meal. This gentle giant seems to think he’s smaller than he is: at 66 lbs, he’d still love to crawl right up into your lap. Homer has a sweet, calm, and serious demeanor, but he also has playful moments—like tossing his head and putting on a real show for you. It’s quite a sight! His beautiful hound dog eyes and ears get him lots of attention while out on walks. Homer is very friendly, a good leash-walker, and meets dogs nicely on leash. He does have some anxiety and likes routines—always knowing when it's time to walk, eat, and nap. He sure loves to have lots of sniffs when he’s out and about. His favorite place to be is the woods – he loves to smell all the nature and go on long walks exploring the forest. At home, he gets super excited for dinner and leaps around and barks—especially if any of his favorites are on the menu—such as peanut butter, cheese, cabbage leaves and green beans! He is working on expanding his vocabulary to include “roll over” and “stay”, having already mastered “shake”, “sit”, and “down”. Homer is looking for a forever family that will adore him as much as he will adore them! (It is hard not to love this adorable, happy pooch!) Homer is not well suited to apartment living, and needs to be adopted to a single family home. Will you give Homer a home?
** Homer is sponsored by Kim Rueben as a gift to her nieces and nephews. Together they sponsored 3 dogs for CDR. Thank you Kim and family!

City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties is a foster based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. We focus on local adoptions in DC and the metro area of Maryland and Virginia. CDR&CK has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs and cats (we do not operate under a first-come, first served model).
Upon accepting a new cat or dog into the organization, we provide a basic vet visit that includes necessary vaccinations, disease screenings, deworming, microchips, and spay/neuter (unless specified). We do not provide a comprehensive medical exam prior to adoption. As a result, sickness, injury, and disability may exist unbeknownst to CDR&CK. City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties is not responsible for payment of any vet care, including known and unknown medical conditions once a cat or dog is adopted from us.
Dog specific: Rabies, DHPP, Bordatella vaccines. They are tested for HW, Lyme, Ehrlichia, Anaplasmosis.
Most cats and dogs will have a house training accident in the initial days in their new home and we cannot guarantee any pet is housebroken or crate trained.
We also update our Facebook page daily with new cats and dogs.
