Santa's Little Helper is a fictional character on The Simpsons. He is the Simpson family's pet Greyhound.
Santa's Little Helper takes his role as Bart's pet dog. He is a greyhound that was adopted by the family when Homer lost all his Mall Santa money at the dog tracks and Bart and Homer see Santa's Little Helper being abused by his master. Once ran away and was taken in as Mr. Burns' new guard dog, while another prominent interaction with Mr. Burns was when he ended up purchasing the 25 puppies he had fathered with a champion racing female greyhound, who all turned out to be world champions.
In various episodes, Santa's Little Helper can be seen chewing on newspapers and other objects in the Simpsons' household, destroying furniture, and digging holes in the backyard. In "Bart's Dog Gets an 'F'" (season two, 1991), he manages to infuriate the entire family by destroying valued items in the home. As a result, Homer and Marge want to get rid of the dog, but Bart and Lisa convince them that he can be trained at an obedience school. Santa's Little Helper does not do well there as Bart is unwilling to use a choke chain suggested by the instructor. The night before the final exam, Bart and Santa's Little Helper play, thinking it will be their last few hours together. This bonding breaks down the communication barrier, allowing the dog to understand Bart's commands, and consequently pass the obedience school.
