Up for adoption
The Lexington Humane Society is caring for Helga and King, each of which is a little more than a year old. Helga has a lot of energy and is said to be good with other dogs, but she should meet any potential pet siblings before going to a new home. She needs some basic  obedience training, and a yard to play in would be a plus. King, an  Alaskan Malamute mix, is characterized as a bundle of joy.
