Name: Citrus    Breed: Plott Hound mix

Approximate Age: 1.5 years

Approximate Weight: 62 lbs.

Currently Living at: Boarding facility. Please adopt Citrus!

At the tender of age of 1.5 years old, Citrus found herself without a family to call her own. This beautiful lady has since been living in a rural shelter and now calls a Washington, DC boarding facility 'home'.

Citrus has been described as a Plott hound mix and clearly has the instincts of a scent hound. Our guess is that Citrus has a dose of mastiff in her, which we can see in her slight jowls. Her coat is a beautiful black/brown brindle, with a striking white chest. She has a tall, leggy stance, and weighing in at 62 pounds, she is a very strong girl. She is an athletic dog and loves to run and jump. She will need someone experienced with dogs to take a chance on her and show her the world is a safe, fun place!

She has made a lot of friends during her shelter stay. She's impressed the staff with her pleasing personality and earned a good behavior rating. Citrus would do well in a calm, but active family. She could easily assimilate into the active lifestyle of a single adopter or couple who have the time to focus on a young dog's needs. Citrus could easily join a multi-dog home, with one or two well-trained dogs. She would do best in a home without children. 

Like most shelter dogs, Citrus may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained.

The fee for adoption of this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Holly at

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process begins when you submit an adoption application either online or at an adoption event. The individual responsible for the dog you are interested in adopting - a position we call the “adoption coordinator” - will then set up a time to discuss your application over the telephone. The adoption coordinator will check your vet reference to make sure all current and past pets were kept up-to-date with their shots and medical care. The adoption coordinator will also set up a home visit with one of our trained volunteers. That individual will come to your home to ensure that it is a safe environment, to confirm that everyone in the home is on board with adopting a dog, and to discuss any other questions you may have about dog adoption!
