Helen is a 6 year old spayed chocolate female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm negative. She is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 51 lbs and has considerable weight to gain. Helen was found, blind and emaciated, walking down the middle of the highway. 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.

Helen doesn't see very well from untreated diabetes and needs insulin shots twice a day. She's not a fan of dogs that get in her face, but loves her humans.
