   Meet Dharma, a four year-old stray from the streets of Louisiana. When Animal control found her, she was traumatized, severely matted, and infested with fleas. Dharma was then placed in a high kill shelter where hundreds of dogs are euthanized if they are not claimed within five days. Miraculously, Puppy Love Dog Rescue was able to set her free just in time, transport her to Maine, and give Michael the opportunity to be a dog dad again.

   Dharma will soon be working with Michael, supporting those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma. She is an amazing little dog and destined to make a positive impact in many people's lives.
