Narrative: I adopted Dharma when she was 2 years old. We soon joined CCSR and HRD ROK. Dharma is proof that you can teach an older dog new tricks. Her fearlessness, intelligence and desire to “work” has made her an ideal K-9 partner. Dharma and I truly enjoy our volunteer work with CCSR. One of our goals is to always continue learning and gaining experience so we may assist our fellow teammates in helping those who seek our services.
