Dog left in trash bag is doing well

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The dog left in a trash bag on the side of the road in Louisville is doing well and even walking.

Kharma made his first public appearance since being found last month tossed out like trash at the intersection of East Chestnut and East Liberty Streets.

Rebecca Eaves with the Shamrock Arrow Fund says Kharma was near death, suffering from broken bones and with fleas covering his body.  No one has been charged with the abuse.

Eaves says donations saved Kharma:  "The community supporting Shamrock Arrow Fund just makes a world of difference to the animals like this, and we strive to prosecute the people that do this.  We want them prosecuted because animal abuse is such a stair step to other types of abuses, and we really need to take notice of that."

You can see Kharma Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the Shamrock Holiday Shoppe at the American Legion HIghlands Post on Bardstown Road.
