Meet Citrus, Sweet Plott Hound Longing for a Special Home


If you are viewing Citrus' bio on Petfinder, please click below for more information!

Name: Citrus    Breed: Plott Hound mix

Approximate Age: 1.5 years

Approximate Weight: 62 lbs.

Currently Living at: Boarding facility. Please adopt Citrus!

At the tender of age of 1.5 years old, Citrus found herself without a family to call her own. This beautiful lady has since been living in a rural shelter and now calls a Washington, DC boarding facility "home".

Citrus has been described as a Plott hound mix and clearly has the instincts of a scent hound. Our guess is that Citrus has a dose of mastiff in her, which we can see in her slight jowls. Her coat is a beautiful black/brown brindle, with a striking white chest. She has a tall, leggy stance, and weighing in at 62 pounds, she is a very strong girl. She is an athletic dog and loves to run and jump. She will need someone experienced with dogs to take a chance on her and show her the world is a safe, fun place!

She has made a lot of friends during her shelter stay. She's impressed the staff with her pleasing personality and earned a good behavior rating. Citrus would do well in a calm, but active family. She could easily assimilate into the active lifestyle of a single adopter or couple who have the time to focus on a young dog's needs. Citrus could easily join a multi-dog home, with one or two well-trained dogs. She would do best in a home without children. 

Like most shelter dogs, Citrus may need a refresher on housetraining. She is likely crate trained.

The fee for adoption of this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and email it to Elissa at
