This one-year-old Terrier Mix would be a great walking partner because she can go for miles! She loves to give her owner kisses and to be close to wherever you are. Helena doesn’t like when her humans are gone most of the day. She aims to please, so she’d like a home where she will receive continued training. Helena has most recently been working on crate training and enjoys that! Helena is a strong pup who is looking for an experienced owner. She prefers to be the only dog in the home and would also do best with family members 15 and older.

Helena will be available for adoption tomorrow, Saturday, December 1st at a special suburban dog adoption event at the Walter E. Smithe Oak Brook Showroom, located at 1501 16th Street. PAWS will be bringing larger dogs like Helena, and some puppies who are in need of homes and space to run and play.
