Kiara is a smart, energetic goofball who is the life of the party! Kiara loves to stay busy by going for walks any time of the day, entertaining herself with a food puzzle, frolicking with her people, playing tug and chasing after tennis balls -- right next to (or on top of) her humans! She loves other dogs and would do great with a yard to get her zoomies out throughout the day. Whenever she comes across something particularly exciting to sniff, Kiara will hop to show her enthusiasm! After walks, Kiara is more than happy to amuse herself by lounging on her bed and curling up with a toy.
When she's not playing, you can probably find Kiara right by her people, cuddling or asking for belly scratches. For Kiara, being right in the middle of everything is right where she wants to be; she will happily follow you around as you cook or do chores. Ultimately, she wants to be your sweet, fuzzy shadow and hang out with you 24/7!
Smart as a whip, Kiara is quick to learn new skills and words and has already mastered a handful (including sit, stay, and down) and has adjusted marvelously to her crate! She even knows to sit and wait before going outside. On top of this amazing training, Kiara is housebroken and can be trusted to be uncrated when her humans aren't home as she doesn't destroy her humans' things. This brave girl isn't scared of the big noises, unbothered and just continuing to chew on her toys. She's working on her excited bark and learning ways to show you how happy she is to see you. Her sweet expressive ears, deep eyes, and gorgeous coloring are just extra perks that come with this precious and loyal gal. Kiara is a one-of-a-kind pup who is looking for a best friend for life - apply today to meet her!
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 & City Kitties Rescue is a foster-based rescue in Washington, DC. We do not have a shelter. CDCK has a thorough adoption process to find the best possible fit for each of our dogs and cats (we do not operate under a first-come, first-served model).
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 for dogs six months and older. We do not provide a comprehensive medical exam before adoption. As a result, sickness, injury, and disability may exist unbeknownst to CDCK. City Dogs & City Kitties Rescue is not responsible for payment of any vet care, including known and unknown medical conditions once a cat or dog is adopted from us.
Dog specific: Rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella 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.
We also update our Facebook page daily with new cats and dogs.
