ThelmaUnderstanding And Patient Hero Needed To Put Past Abuse Behind Me! (female - 6yrs)

Hello everyone, my name is Thelma and I am in need of a hero to mend my broken heart. 

It seems as though I have suffered from past abuse and trauma of somekind, possibly by the hands of men, as I am much more comfortable in the presence of females. The emotional scars of the past tend to rear their ugly head at random times when I am being pet. I can seemingly be content but then will feel threatened and will act out by nipping/biting out of fear.

The fantastic news is that better days are ahead of me and I have been making tremendous progress healing my heart by going to regular out of shelter training at Smarty Paws. I have a team of awesome volunteers, staff and trainers that put 110% effort into my rehibilitation.

I have made great strides from where I started and with the right home setting with an experienced and patient human the staff has complete faith that I can continue to improve. I love treats and they are definitely put you in the fast lane of the highway to my heart.

For the betterment of all involved it would be imperative for me to be in an ADULT-ONLY environment and I have been doing better being around other animals when I go to training at Smarty Paws, so if you have other doggies we should do a proper meet and greet at my training facilities on Thursdays till 12:00. Please TEXT or call 702-767-6603 to set up an appointment!

Please be the one to put my heart and mind at ease and adopt me today!
