On Monday, Helena the dog's former owner gave her up to an animal shelter in Atlanta, Georgia. The reason provided? Helena is just "too nice."
"Yes, she really was returned for being too nice,"spokesperson Karen Hirsch told TODAY in an email. "It was obvious the gentleman was looking for a guard/protection dog. He also suggested she be adopted by a woman 'because they are more into that petting stuff.'"
There's zero evidence suggesting that men don't like "that petting stuff" as much as women. But, the former owner is right about Helena being a complete and utter marshmallow.
Nice Guys Don't Finish Last, According To New Study
Good news for nice guys: you don't have to be a bad boy or a jerk to find love and a long-term relationship. A study conducted by the University of Worcester, which was published in the journal Evolutionary Biology, found that women actually consider certain kinds of niceness more attractive than just good looks when it comes right down to it. Researchers asked 202 women to look at dozens of photographs of men's faces — some were conventionally good looking, and some were not. The participants then read various hypothetical scenarios about the men in the photos.

In fact, Helena is such an agreeable and easygoingthat even while her former owner was in the process of turning her over to the shelter, "she just sat on a staff member's feet thunking her tail on the floor," Hirsch said. "She just wants attention. If you stop petting her, she will request you continue."
So eager is she to be nearby people she adores, Helena's earned the nickname "Velcro dog."
"She sticks to your side like Velcro," Hirsch said.
Helena's sweet nature is more evidence of how inherently good dogs are.

"Yes, she really was returned for being too nice . It was obvious the gentleman was looking for a guard/protection dog ,” LifeLine Animal Hirsch further shared that Helena is around 4 years old and arrived at the shelter in summer 2017, after being picked up as a “malnourished” stray in poor shape.
She came into the shelter this past summer after being picked up as a stray. Hirsch describes Helena's condition at the time as "malnourished and not in the best shape." But her darling personality still shone through.
Helena, who is about 4 years old, was adopted in October by the person who brought her back this week. Hirsch can't say why this person thought Helena might make a good guard dog, given that her chief characteristic is being such a complete and utter lovebug.
It perhaps has something to do with Helena having a blocky-shaped head, whichmeans she will be ill-tempered.
"People judge dogs based on their appearances way too often," Hirsch said. "You cannot judge a book by its cover!"
Instead, you should judge Helena by how she's come to be known: a perfect little Velcro dog whose key aim in life is to be in close proximity to the ones she loves.
