Additional Information: Cedar is a lovely dog and a quick learner. He loves the company of his humans, but is also comfortable being crated alone at home. Most of all, Cedar needs a human who can help him work through his leash reactivity with dedicated training. A quiet neighborhood would be best and a yard to play fetch in would be a plus!
Cedar has a variety of hobbies that include; a good mental workout (games and sniffing for treats), playing fetch, and relaxing with humans. He loves sniffy games and working on his wobbly Kong, and has also been known to play an excellent game of fetch (in which he punctuates each retrieval with an adorable pounce). When not working on his training exercises and games, he loves nothing more than to play with and snuggle his people (between the daily activities he's been known to hop on the couch, let out a loud sigh, and happily doze off next to his foster human). Don't be surprised when after a long day of fun, a tired Cedar decides to put himself to bed. It's absolutely adorable.
If you are interested in meeting a dog or cat, we require an adoption application. If the animal has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.

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.
