Observations with Kids: Good. Since she’s still learning her puppy manners she’d do better around older children.

Additional Information: Ivy is momma to the dynamic duo pups, Posy and Lily. Ivy is a really sweet girl with boundless puppy energy. She loves to play with other dogs and adores doggie daycare. Ivy is a great walking partner and she looks forward to long walks in the neighborhood. She would do well with an active adopter and would love the chance to hike and explore the outdoors. Ivy is a true hound mix who gets so much joy out of sniffing all the smells! Ivy simply loves people and dogs and with the basic training that all puppies should have, she should be a tremendous dog and such a loving member of your family. And don’t let her puppy energy fool you-Ivy will jump at the chance to snuggle on the couch!
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).
Adoption fees // Dogs - $395 (including puppies) unless noted; $200 for senior dogs // Cats - $150 (unless otherwise noted)
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.
Cat specific: Rabies, FVRCP, Feline Leukemia vaccines. They are tested for FIV and FeLV.
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.
