About Me

Hi, my name is Helen. I am a sweet, playful and affectionate pup. Don’t you just LOVE my ears?  SCGRR thinks I probably knew life only in the back yard with not enough socialization. But during my short stay foster care, I have learned SO much about the real world.

I am young and want to learn about the bigger world, but sometimes I get a little nervous.  Each step I take is a challenge; a new adventure for us to tackle together. Like when the television came on and I saw movement. I got kinda scared and barked at it. Being so smart, I adjust to new things and after just one day, the TV was no big deal. Did I mention, I love to learn? My foster Mom got me a food puzzle and I mastered it really quickly. I am that smart. I can get skittish around loud noises and new people, so I am looking for someone that understands they need to move slowly and let me come to them so I can warm up to them in my own time.         Click on Video    Once I know and trust you, I LOVE you!  I hope my family will understand I may need some help to get comfortable meeting  new people.

My foster family plays ball with me and I absolutely love the game of fetch.    Click on Video   Playing is my favorite thing to do and I have lots of energy, even after my walks.  After all, I am still a puppy! I previously lived with a small dog, a savvy cat and a large dog, but I have a VERY strong prey drive and might chase small animals. On leash, when I see another dog, I might also try to scare them away so they won’t hurt me.  I am trying not to do that on my walks and my foster Mom is working hard to teach me how to ignore other dogs and squirrels. I love car rides.  I will jump in on my own and hang out quietly to see what new adventures are in-store for me. I love being outside: sniffing and sunbathing. If I am comfortable and my people are home, I will relax in the yard. But, if I am left alone, I may get anxious and try to escape to find my people. I sleep all night next to my foster mom, in my dog bed. She gets me and is patient while I learn new life skills.  I hope my new family will be too!

My Ideal Home

I dream of a “zen” environment with people that will give me plenty of interesting things to do.  I would love someone home to keep me company most of the time – including a calm and balanced doggy companion to learn from.  If there are kids in the home, please let them be older and super respectful to give me the time I need to get to know them. My family should be committed to helping me acclimate to new experiences (and people) slowly so that I can be the best version of myself. A quieter neighborhood would also be easier for me.
