Additional Information: Roy is an absolute sweetheart and a gentle soul. He is very friendly and wants very much to be the world's largest lapdog. Roy is gentle and loving with kids and adults. He enjoys walking around the neighborhood, going on hikes, and, like any good hound, using his nose as much as possible. In his current foster home, he lives with two other dogs who he does very will with. One of his foster’s dogs has anxiety issues that cause him to bark in Roy’s face, but Roy never reacts. However, little dogs and Huskies sometimes activate Roy's prey drive, so they are best kept separate. Roy enjoys his rest and devotes a good part of his day to naps. He’s the perfect dog to curl up on the couch with and enjoy a book or movie! Right now, Roy is building up the confidence to be home alone, and he needs someone to give him the love and consistency he deserves in life. With the right home, we are sure he will blossom! Apply today to meet him!
If you are interested in meeting a dog, we require an adoption application. Visit http://www.citydogsrescuedc.org/adopt.html 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.

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.
