  • Helena, a 4-year-old dog, was returned to a shelter for being ‘too nice’
  • Her previous owner wanted a watchdog but seems Helena is far from being that
  • She has found a new home two days after she was returned to the shelter

Helena, a 4-year-old dog, was returned to a shelter in Atlanta as previous owner said that the dog was ‘too nice’. They wanted an aggressive watchdog but Helena is far from being that at all.

Instead of attacking intruders, Helena would come to them and give them licks and love.

On Tuesday, March 6, the LifeLine Animal Project posted on Facebook about Helena: “Introducing….the sweetest, nicest, snuggliest dog in ATL. Helena was recently returned to our Fulton County Animal Services location after her new owners said she was too nice and just wanted to be around them all the time. This Velcro dog sounds just about perfect to us. And we know there’s a family out there waiting to spend their nights binge-watching Netflix and snuggling with this sweet velvet hippo. Could that be you? Email [email protected] for more information!”

Shelter staff was so thrilled with Helena that they nicknamed her “Velcro dog” because she is always at their side.

“She was super loving, loved to be cuddled and liked to give kisses,” a staff said.

Then just two days after the post went up, LifeLine announced that Velcro Helena has found a new home.

“Helena, the snuggliest pup in the ATL, who was returned to our Fulton County Animal Services location after she was ‘too nice’ has found a home who’s just as nice as she is,” the post wrote.

If ever Helena will be returned again to the shelter, netizens voiced their willingness to adopt her and give her a home.
