Attention all dog (and cat) lovers – looking for that one girl who loves and is loved by all dogs and cats? a super smart gal who will love you unconditionally? a girl who is happy going for a walk or run or just hanging out with her family? and is stunningly beautiful, both inside and out? Look no further...Helena, like the Greek goddess, has an athletic body and beauty which is intensified by her black lined eyes and long white eyelashes. Helena has the purest white fur with lemon colored spots. Helena is 7 months old and is super smart; in less than 2 months she has learned to walk on a loose leash, and sit and come when called. She lives with her foster mom and 4 dogs, 4 cats and other animals. She loves to play and gets so excited when she sees her siblings; especially the kitties! She greets everybody with a wagging tail, wiggly body and kisses. She is learning that humans are not so bad, but expects new humans to earn her trust. If you are looking for a new family member who has a pure heart with the gentlest disposition, is extremely smart and attentive to all that goes on around her, will be loyal to you forever, and are willing to put in a little time to earn her trust, look no further...Helena is your gal!

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
