I’m sure we don’t have the reach of Keith Olbermann’s twitter feed, no offense to Cole, but I figured putting this on the front page probably couldn’t hurt.
HUG-HAPPY, PATIENT, AFFECTIONATE HELIOS MAY DIE SATURDAY. Look at his video: it is not fanciful to call him “centered.” Yet his human dumped this good boy who needs our pledges via @chortletown to find a Rescue or Adopter/Foster.

Hello, my name is Helios. My animal id is #62815. I am a desexed male white dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a agency on 14-May-2019.
Helios is at risk for medical reasons. Helios was diagnosed with canine infectious respiratory disease complex which is contagious to other animals and will require in home care. Behaviorally, Helios has exhibited poor impulse control and would benefit from some behavior modification.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: Helios is a radiantly happy guy who’s tiny in size but mighty in spirit and it seems only fitting that he’s named for a sun god as he lights up any room he enters and spreads sunshine wherever he roams. Full of good-natured energy, bouncy hugs and sweet snuggles, he’s always thrilled to get out of his den and go for a walk and extremely friendly with dogs and people alike. While he does pull slightly on leash, he’s a smart cookie who responds nicely to direction, seems house trained and already knows how to come, sit and stay on command and he’ll play enthusiastically yet softly with both toys and people. Helios is a natural athlete but his NBA-level jumping skills make him better suited to a home with older kids who are taller than he can bounce and his perfect match would be an active family who can provide ample play and snuggle time. Bonus points for those willing to teach him some new tricks! Helios is waiting at our Manhattan Care Center and he’s ready to be your sun, your moon, your stars, your everything. Will you be his?
“Helios has exhibited poor impulse control and would benefit from some behavior modification.” Helios is definitely jackal material!
Look at that face!
Anyhow, if you might be considering adopting a rescue dog, or you know someone who is, and you’re in the greater NY City area (I’ll let everyone decide that for themselves), give a thought to Helios.
