Thelma is available for adoption at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter"Thelma" Is Pure Grace!


They came in together as strays on September 19, 2013.  We named them Thelma and Louise and wondered if they might be mother and daughter.  Thelma was thought to be around 10 years old and Louise about 7.  they were amazing together, and we all hoped that they would be adopted together but that did not happen.  Louise was adopted, leaving Thelma behind to wait for her forever home.

Thelma is a fantastic 10 year old, spayed female, black and brown Doberman Pinscher.  She weighs 71 pounds.  Thelma is one of the most amazing dogs that you ever will see.  Besides her elegant Doberman beauty and grace, she is a dog who will melt her heart.

Thelma loves people.  She is very engaged with the person that she is with.  She is easy to handle and walks well on-leash.  She knows Sit and Down commands.  She loves treats.  Thelma is a calm, very sweet dog who is a joy to be around.  She is good with other dogs and had a playful relationship with Louise.

See Thelma in action.

Thelma runs with the grace of an antelope.  She is a happy, wonderful dog who has some good years left in her life.  She needs that special person who will appreciate what an incredible dog she is.  Please help Thelma find her forever home.  When contacting the shelter for more information about Thelma, be sure to use her ID# A1425600 as a reference.  Photo/video credit:  Debbie Fan, Twitter @blackjackbarks  Can you give Thelma the forever home she longs for?
