Dharma is a 5 year old German Shepherd who currently has some skin conditions (diagnosed as a flea allergy), massively swollen feet, and a very wobbly back end, probably due to a combination of hip dysplasia and possibly a pinched nerve in her spine (xrays pending). She seems to be housebroken. She has received initial vet care. She is in need of additional vet care including all her vaccinations, spay, continued skin treatment, and likely surgical care for her spine and hips. She is 5 years old, very tall and very thin at 97lbs, and has an amazing personality. She gets along fine with other dogs, is playful and alert, and learns fast. She knows "sit" and "down" and is learning "stay" and "go lay down". She doesn't stray when off-leash, and is very eager to form a long term family bond. She rides well in the car. She is great with children and likes to chase cats and birds, though she can't run right now because she's too wobbly. She has met my goats and is curious, but has learned to keep her distance. She has a very soft/gentle mouth, and is most comfortable when she's in the same room with her people. She loves physical affection and conversation.
A Gofundme campaign has been set up to help pay for Dharma's medical bills. Click here to support Veterinary Help for Dharma organized by Jennifer Conroy.

NOTE: In our experience many German Shepherd Dogs are very good with kids. In our bios, we may provide information on our experience with a particular dog and children. However AGSDR discourages ALL unsupervised animal/child interaction. Children should be supervised at all times when they interact with ANY animal, whether it is a horse, dog, cat, bunny, lizard, or any other species. Even loving household pets can have a grumpy day, or otherwise get tired of a child's attention, so proper supervision is essential for the well being of any child and any pet.
The entire biography of this dog is based solely upon our volunteers' direct experiences with the dog. The dog's age is an estimate, and statements about the state of health, temperament, training, and ability to get along with other animals, children, cats and other dogs, is estimated solely based on our volunteer's experiences with this dog. Your experiences with this dog may be quite different.
