Ms. Helena was originally adopted as a companion to a toddler. When the family decided that Helena was too much trouble, they opened their door and threw her out to fend for herself.   One of our rescue workers found her and brought her to us.  

Helena is a happy, healthy, lovable little soul who loves to cuddle and enjoys playing with her foster family.  She is spunky, very friendly, highly intelligent and alert to her surroundings. She can also be a real talker when it's time to go in her crate and go to bed.  She will often protest and "tell" me that she's not ready for bed. It is really cute to hear her talk. Helena is a social butterfly and gets along very well with other dogs.  All she wants to do is play and make new friends.  She is still very young and active and would do well with children and/or active adults.  She would also be a great running companion. Helena is highly intelligent and would be a great candidate for a service dog.

Are you looking for a wonder dog?  Helena is your girl!

The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
