Additional Information: Harley is a very happy and affectionate girl. She has an infinite supply of love for her humans. You’ll see her absolute joy when she sees you return home each day after work. In the evening, she loves to snuggle and makes the perfect little spoon! She will tuck herself under your arm if you are relaxing on the couch or under your chin if she gets bed privileges. Harley also loves playing with other dogs and is respectful of them. Harley is very loyal to those she trusts. She is initially wary of new people, particularly men, and is working on trust issues when meeting them for the first time. But with proper introductions and patience from her trusted humans, Harley develops a comfort level around the new person and relaxes. Harley is an absolute sweetheart! Please consider giving this beautiful, loving girl her furever home. Apply today to meet Harley.

If you are interested in meeting a dog, we require an adoption application. Visit 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. Information about our current dogs in need of fosters can be found here: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/current-dogs-in-need-of-a-foster.html and the application to foster is here: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/foster.html. 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 do our best to disclose all health records and known health conditions to adopters. Upon accepting a new cat or dog into the organization, we provide a basic vet visit that includes necessary vaccinations and health tests, but does 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. We also update our Facebook page daily with new dogs. If you are interested in meeting this dog, please visit: www.citydogsrescuedc.org/dog-adopt.html City Dogs Rescue is a rescue, not a shelter, and our dogs are located in temporary foster homes in the Washington, DC metro region. Adoption fee, home visit, and application required. CDR charges an adoption fee of $395 unless specified. This fee typically includes health care provided before adoption: all age-appropriate rabies, distemper, and bordetella vaccinations, flea and heartworm prevention prior to adoption, spay/neuter procedure, microchip when available, SNAP test for parasites, initial health check vet visit when going from the municipal shelter to City Dogs Rescue, and pre-adoption health care for dogs over the age of 1 year as needed.
