If Thelma was born in the seventies she would have been a jazzercise queen! She is active and loves to play, so an exercise that provides fun AND helps her burn off some energy is her favorite thing. She is well behaved and knows how to keep herself entertained when she is alone, but boy does she love time with friends! Dog friends, human friends (even kids!) – anyone who is down to play and snuggle will be bestowed the title of “bestie” by Thelma.
Meet Thelma at our New York Avenue Adoption Center!

Thelma is a one-year-old, 35 lbs., American Staffordshire Terrier mix. Thelma was surrendered to the Washington Humane Society on December 23, 2014, after her owner’s landlord said dogs were not allowed in the residence.
