Bounce, Run, Play, Repeat! Hi, I'm Helga, a high energy girl looking for an active, adult family that has lots of time for games and long walks to keep my busy brain and wiggly body happy! No kids under 12 please, I've been told that I'm a little too "EXUBERANT" (I think that just means fun!) and I might knock small kids over (I just love a little too hard is all!). I was found as a stray (the outside life was not for me!) and I can't wait to have a nice, comfy home to live in and a family that will love me! Think it might be yours? Are you an on-the-go sort of person? I think we will get along famously! Come by the shelter and meet me today! Please visit for more details or call 630-407-2800.
