ADOPTED!! Dharma

CongRATulations to the Florian family!

Dharma is a chocolate American Hairless Terrier rescued after a breeder dumped her at a kill shelter in Jacksonville, NC. A very nice lady from the Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation recognized what she was, and pulled her and got her to safety. She helped Dharma find her way to Rat Terrier ResQ, where she is being fostered in a home with other pups and children ages 7 to 10 that she loves to play with.  She would not be recommended for children 5 and under.  Dharma is 1 year and 7 months old and 12 lbs. She is very loving and craves human affection 24 hours a day.  She will do almost anything for a good back scratch. She sleeps under the covers with her foster parents and does not do well being crated at night.  Because she is an American Hairless Terrier she requires very special care. Dharma must be bathed every week or two and lotioned daily. Her clothes must be washed in fragrance-free detergent.  She also needs sunscreen if she is outside for more than a few minutes. Dharma would be most happy with a home that has a shaded fenced yard where she can run free and play.  She likes to wear her clothing, even indoors,  just as you would everyday. If it is cold weather she needs a fleece shirt indoors, if it is warm she just needs a cotton teeshirt. Dharma is housetrained.  What Dharma would appreciate the most is an owner that is home during the day, who would keep her uncrated and give her all the love and attention she deserves.  For more photos of this special girl, click here:

    This little girl is so cute we have applied for her! Our 2 and half year old AHT Caillou is in need of a companion it seems, and I think Dharma would be a great companion. I dont think Caillou will be jealous of her since she doesn’t have any hair either LOL. Please let us know if she is still available.

    Hello, Paul! I have sent your inquiry to Dharma’s foster parent. I think there is at least one or two outstanding apps for Dharma, but none have been officially approved yet.
