#8234 Dharma

Medium-size, Female, Adult Hound,
Dharma is up-to-date on her shots and has been spayed. Dharma is currently being fostered in Parsonsburg, MD.

Meet Dharma! This sweet stylish girl is 2-3 years old, 40lb hound mix. Her lovely cream colored fur is sometimes called a lemon drop coat. Full of personality we think she may have a future in Instagram just check out some of her facial expressions! Dharma would do well in a family home with people around that she can hang with, and perhaps another dog if they want company. Dharma would do best in a home without cats, because well she likes them maybe too much....she doesn’t quite understand why they don’t enjoy when she gives them a tongue bath....

Great Dharma Qualities!

- Crate trained (although she loves cuddling on the couch)
- House trained (if tempting delicious treats are left out Dharma cannot be held responsible for her stomach's demands)
- LOVES people (Dharma is a gentle social butterfly #petsarethebestduh!)
- Likes a proper introduction to other dogs, but she loves hanging with her foster brothers and sisters
- Learning to enjoy leashed walks, it's all a little new to her
- Dharma has the most dainty little non bark to let you know she would like your attention

This dog tested positive for Lyme before arriving to the rescue. Lymes is a very common type of bacteria that infects dogs and other species and is spread by ticks. Lymes is not contagious to humans or other pets. The only way to get this disease is to be bitten by a tick that carries it. The treatment is typically 21-30 days of antibiotics. This dog started treatment upon arriving to the rescue.

This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue. The disease was treated while in foster care. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
