Meet Holmes (Has Application)

Name: Holmes
Suspected Breed(s): Mixed Breed
Gender: Male
Age: 6 months old
Weight: 54lbs
Personality: Smart, outgoing, rambunctious, playful, eager-to-please, energetic and food-motivated.
Observations with Dogs: Seems to love all other dogs.
Observations with Cats: Holmes does well with the resident cat in his foster home he's curious but takes direction well about whether to approach. He eventually figured out that bringing balls to the cat tree did not mean the cat would agree to play.
Observations with Kids: Holmes is a little too exuberant for young children, as he loves to play and doesn't understand his size.
House Training Progress: No recent accidents.
Crate Training Progress: Holmes is doing great with crate training he's crated overnight and can be in his crate for 2-3 hours at a time during the day. Sometimes he'll hang out in his crate when there's nothing more exciting happening around him!
Location: DC area foster
Rescued From: Smyth County, VA
Additional Information: Holmes is a velvety, sweet, and gentle black shadow who will follow you around the house with curiosity, seeking out opportunities for affection or an extra treat. He is a darling dog with a lot of puppy energy. This goofball LOVES to play fetch and tug-of-war, and will flop over for belly rubs with a dramatic sigh (if he's tired out from chasing his own tail). He sprints circles around his friends at the dog park, when he's not rolling over or gently hopping to initiate a wrestle/romp session. Holmes is affectionate and always brings a toy back to you to keep playing. This smart and eager-to-please pup (he already knows "sit," and "down") is one friendly guy! Holmes is looking for a home that has a lot of time to play, exercise, and provide mental stimulation, as well as some help with training for walks. Apply today to meet Holmes!


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. Apply for a DOG:

City Dogs & City Kitties 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. CDCK 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).

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 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, 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.

We also update our Facebook page daily with new cats and dogs.
