Circumstances found 10-year-old Dharma abandoned in a shack along with a teenage boy, left to fend for themselves. Starving, with fur falling out and skin infections, Dharma was down to 46 lbs. The teenage boy’s aunt discovered them and took both into her home, but unfortunately her landlord would not permit her to keep Dharma. With the help of Virginia German Shepherd Rescue, a loving foster family, and a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization, Dharma received antibiotics, medicated baths, special food and great care, and she began to transform into the beautiful dog she once was. Gaining 50 lbs., her fur grew back and her skin healed. Her happily ever after soon came along in Mr. W., a disabled veteran who adopted Dharma and enjoys long walks with her and her GSD brother, Henry.
