Approximate Weight: 34 lbs
Currently Living at: foster
Meet Helen. Helen is almost totally blind. She was found running through traffic on a very busy street -- it's a miracle she's even alive. Someone called animal control, and now she's in the shelter. You would think that someone would have missed her, or wondered what happened to her...but sadly, no one did. No one came looking for her. In spite of being abandoned, Helen is a super-sweet and happy girl, who seems to get along with everyone! She is happy and cheerful, grateful for any human attention she gets, and happy to socialize with the other dogs in her kennel.
One of Helen's eyes had been surgically removed, so someone did care about her once. She may have a little bit of sight left in her remaining eye, but it's not much. We think she's around 6-7 years old, and she weighs approximately 34 lbs.
Helen says...Hi there, everyone! They call me Helen, and they say that I'm just the sweetest girl EVER!! I keep hearing them say the word blind, but I don't know what it means. I'm pretty happy in my world, even though I trip over things sometimes, and I love to make new human and canine friends! Do you have room in your heart and home for a pup like me? I have a beautiful fawn-colored coat with my pretty pug-like black markings on my face. My fur is super-soft…great for everyone to pet me (hint hint). :-) I weigh about 34 pounds (not too big), which makes me a perfect size for an apartment, house or condo!! They say I am probably some sort of pug mix…all I know is that I'm a happy pup and I love to play, get lots of pets, and give lots of doggie kisses. :)

Helen says...I don't know why, but somehow I ended up in this scary shelter. It's kind of a scary place. I don't get to go outside, and it gets really really loud when new dogs come in (which happens all the time), and no one comes to visit me. So I get more and more scared here. Once, there were people who loved me and paid attention to me. But I guess they didn't want me anymore. What did I do to make them not want me? I hope someday someone will take care of me again. :( I really hope I can get out of this place very soon!
So don't you think I would look really cute as your new Facebook cover photo, romping around in the sunshine and rolling in the autumn leaves? And how I'd love to snuggle up by you while we relax inside after a day of fun adventures. I just really want to run, play, then snuggle, nap and dream of all the adventures we'll have together. I would just LOVE trips to the dog park and long walks -- I love to sniff out and discover new things!
Sweet Helen makes friends with everyone she meets, as long as they give her some time and patience to trust them first! At around 6-7 years old, she is past the baby puppy phase (no all-night crying or bathroom breaks every 2 hours!) but like any young dog, still needs lots and lots of exercise to stay happy and healthy.
Helen's new person or family will need to make sure she gets lots of socialization and playtime with other dogs and people to keep up the good social skills she has already! And like all dogs we adopt out, she'll need to go to obedience classes to build a strong bond with her people, and help her become a well behaved companion or family member. Helen seems to like all the people she meets, and can't wait to wiggle her way into your heart and home.
Like most young dogs, Helen will need a refresher on her house training when she gets to a new home. She will also need to go to obedience school so she can continue to be a well-socialized dog!
The adoption fee for this dog is $350, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery. If you are interested in adopting, please download our Adoption Questionnaire and e-mail it to at Sheila at sheilam@luckydoganimalrescue.org ASAP!
