Thelma is 7 years old, she's a Boxer, pit bull terrier mix and weighs 50 pounds. The staff is diligently working to improve her cues for 'sit', 'down', waiting for the food bowl to be put on the floor, and she's improving daily. She responds well to treats and takes them gently. She loves being scratched and is very affectionate.   She is easy to leash up and walks well next to her handler. While she does well around other dogs she needs space and is not interested in playing with them. She appears to be house broken. She will sit and lay down for a treat. Thelma is sweet and is in our VIP program which means her adoption is free except for the $10 mandatory CMPD pet licensing fee. Take a few moments to meet her, we think she's special.

The Executive

I have to say, I'm a busy cat. First, I've got to check out what's happening out the window. Next, I'll see if any closets or cupboards need looking into. And then there are my naps - can't be late for those. I can fit a little socializing into my schedule. Shall we plan on breakfast and dinner? I hope you like kibbles.

Only $48 to adopt. His owner passed away.
