Dog Name: Sherwin
Suspected Breed(s): Boxer mix

Age: 2 yrs. old
Weight: 50 lbs

Observations with Dogs: Sherwin is good with dogs – he has greatly enjoyed playing and snuggling with the resident dogs at two different foster homes. Sherwin is still working on meeting dogs while on his leash.
Observations with Cats: Really curious about the cat in his current foster home and sometimes likes to chase.
Observations with Kids: Gentle with kids. Sherwin licks faces. On two separate occasions, his fosters had visitors 3 years of age. Sherwin was good around the kids, and didn't pay them too much attention.
House Training Progress: No recent accidents
Crate Training Progress: Sherwin was fine in the crate at his previous foster’s home, but he has been having a more difficult time with being crated and left alone at his current foster home. A predictable schedule seems to help. He does well if you leave him in the crate with a peanut butter kong.
Location: Needs foster
Rescued From: Roane County, WV
Additional Information: Sherwin is a happy, playful boy. He is full of love and loves to give kisses. He is a true sweetheart! Sherwin adores playing and would be a great candidate for a home with another playful dog! He enjoys walks and romping around outside. He is an excellent snuggler and is happy to cuddle up with you at any time. His is a loyal companion who enjoys playing and walks as much as chilling on the couch. Sherwin has already mastered sit, lay and stay and is an easy going dog to have around the house. If you want a playful snuggle buddy, apply today to meet Sherwin!

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.
