Helen (#160335)

Helen is a 6 year old spayed chocolate female.  She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative.  She is approved for kids aged 10 and up and should go to a home without cats.  She weighs 60 lbs Her blindness is caused by diabetes which is now under control; she will need to be on insulin injections and blood glucose monitoring for the rest of her life. In mid- June, Lab Rescue will have surgery performed that will, we hope, restore the sight in one of her eyes.  Helen is learning to love toys and is getting healthier every day.  She's  bundle of love and energy and we can't wait to see what happens once her sight is restored.

Update from Helen's Foster Family - Apr 26, 2017: Helen is a six year old lovable chocolate girl! She has blossomed into a snuggle bug who is the envy of the neighborhood on leash and who loves to retrieve. She rides great in the car and thinks squeaky balls are the best. Helen prefers to be the center of attention, so she would like to be a solo dog. She loves to be with her people, inside and out, so she doesn’t need a fence and has no issues with stairs. Helen not only likes to be with her humans, but needs someone with a short workday or one who doesn’t work outside the home, since she needs two insulin shots a day on a regular schedule. She is perfect for her shots and is a very well-regulated diabetic. House Manners? Absolutely! You don’t need to worry about food disappearing off the counter, or leaving your shoes on the floor or holes in the back yard. She's a very well behaved girl!

Resources for Adopters 

Thank you for adopting a lab from Lab Rescue of the LRCP.  Every year we find special homes like yours for hundreds of labs and along the way we have learned a lot that we hope can help you too. This section of our website is just for you and we hope it contains useful tips that can make the transition to your home move smoothly.

Remember that relationships don't just happen.  They take time and effort and along the way there may be bumps in the road.  That's to be expected but there are things that you can do to ease everyone's transition.  Don't be surprised by the occasional naughty behavior; it's normal.

If you have a question that doesn't appear in our resources section then please reach out to your adoption coordinator and he or she can get you the answers that you need.
