Her blog here: http://teamthelma.blogspot.com/

Confiscated from a cruelty case, Thelma the pit bull, lived in a shelter for 10 months before she was adopted. Now with the Purina® Incredible Dog Team, she is entertaining audiences across the country with her athleticism, enthusiasm and sense of humor!


I met Thelma and her family at a local disc dog competition this past summer. She is a LOVELY dog, very social with everyone (almost knocked me down, giving kisses), and has some INTENSE drive -- those frisbees never stood a chance! :lol3:

She was up for adoption for quite some time and I was considering adopting her. I'm so glad that Nadja adopted her though.

Thelma has some insane legs on her!!

Roo and Nadja were recently at the Artic Air Games in PA. The video below has some shots in slow mo and they really show how athletic Thelma is (Justice is a dog that is currently available for adoption)

I was SO coveting her. :heartbeat: You could tell her folks just loved her and I'm not surprised to hear that they officially adopted her.

True giraffe legs, LOL! She's really beautiful and graceful in motion -- reminds me of a deer.



INCREDIBLE video! :clap:
