Dog Name: Bonnie
Suspected Breed(s): Redtick Coonhound
Gender: Female
Age: 6 years
Weight: 51 lbs.
Personality: Playful, Friendly, Smart, Affectionate, Gentle
Observations with Dogs: Bonnie generally does well with other dogs both on and off leash. Bonnie lives with a 10 year old male dog. She loves him and tries to initiate play, but he is not interested. Bonnie would enjoy another dog who also likes to play, but she would probably do well as the only dog too.
Observations with Cats: Not tested
Observations with Kids: Bonnie has not yet been tested with children. Bonnie can be startled by loud or unexpected noises and movements. For this reason, she may do better in a home with no children or older children until she is more comfortable.
House Training Progress:  Bonnie has made progress quickly and has become more consistent about going to the bathroom on walks. She goes pretty quickly in her foster’s yard when she is off leash.
Crate Training Progress: Bonnie generally does well in the crate. She is crated during the work day with a midday walk. Her foster says she might be able to be crated 5-6 hours with a long walk or playtime beforehand. Bonnie usually looks comfortable in her crate when her foster returns home from work. She sleeps on a dog bed in her fosters’ bedroom at night.
Location: DC area foster
Rescued From: Smyth County, VA
Additional Information: Bonnie is a sweet, gentle gal who has a lovely personality and temperament. Bonnie still has some puppy playfulness, but she will be ready for snuggles or a puppy snooze if her people are watching a movie or reading. Bonnie is very smart and has quickly learned the “leave it” command. This hound girl loves using her nose and would be happy with a family that has a yard full of smells or one that will take her on walks so she can sniff around town. She is catching onto things in her foster home quickly and is very eager to please. Bonnie would love a nice home of her own where she can be safe, comfy and happy. Apply today to meet this happy girl!


If you are interested in meeting a dog, we require an adoption application. Visit to apply. If a dog has "HAS APPLICATION" listed, they are still available to receive additional applications but also may be in the process of being adopted soon.


If a dog has "NEEDS FOSTER" listed, they are still available for adoption. Information about our current dogs in need of fosters can be found here: and the application to foster is here:


City Dogs Rescue 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 has a thorough adoption process in order to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs (we do not operate under a first-come, first-served model).


Prior to arrival, all of our dogs are spayed/neutered (unless specified) and given shots for Rabies, Distemper DHPP, and Bordatella. They are tested for Heartworm, Lyme, Anaplasma, and Ehrlichia. They are dewormed at least twice and given a health check by the vet.  Most dogs will have a house training accident in the initial days in their new home and we cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken or crate trained. Our adoption fee is $395 (including puppies) unless noted -- senior dogs are available for an adoption fee of $200.


We also update our Facebook page daily with new dogs.

About City Dogs Rescue DC

About Our Rescue Group...

City Dogs Rescue was formed for one reason: to rescue adoptable dogs in overcrowded and high-kill shelters where resources are severely limited. We want to offer a lifeline to as many of these wonderful pups as possible. Sadly, nearly all of the dogs that City Dogs Rescue takes in are just days and sometimes hours away from being euthanized, for no reason other than lack of space. By finding these dogs permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area, we can enrich lives - both human and canine. We are excited to embark on this journey, and we welcome your help in any capacity – through volunteering, fostering, adopting, and/or donating.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our dogs are located in Washington, DC either in foster homes or at City Dogs. Please email us to schedule a visit!

Our Adoption Process...

1. Fill out an Adoption Application.
2. We will have a brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience, if any, with pets.
3. If applicable, we will call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for. We may also call references listed on your application.
4. For renters, we’ll check with your landlord to ensure that dogs are permitted and that the dog that you’re adopting wouldn’t violate any size or breed restrictions.
5. We will visit your home to see the environment where the dog will live and answer any questions you might have. This is a great opportunity for you to get valuable input on how to integrate your new pet into your home.
6. Finally, we will enter into an adoption contract, and you will be required to pay an adoption fee which covers spay/neutering*, microchipping, vaccinations, and first initial vet visit.
7. Most importantly, enjoy life with your new companion!

* If you are adopting a puppy, depending on the age of the puppy she/he may not yet be spayed/neutered. In this case, you will be required to schedule an appointment for the spay/neuter procedure for your new companion and sign an agreement in which you agree to spay/neuter your pet within a certain number of days.
