Dog of the Week: Athena

Julia D Dog of the Week

Athena is in need of a foster or adoptive home. She is going to be losing her current foster placement (through no fault of her own) and doesn’t do well in a kennel environment. She’s been doing great in a home and we would like to see her be able to move to another home instead of the Adoption Center.

Athena may be considered a senior dog, but don’t tell her that – she certainly doesn’t feel like a senior! This girl still enjoys playing, giving you a good workout on a leash, and being an all-around spitfire when the mood strikes her! She is a wonderful dog, with just a little gray in the muzzle.   Athena is not a match with cats, they definitely bring out the “chase” in her! Athena could be a match in a home with easy-going dogs that are smaller than her; she’s happy to meet your pooches and see how they all get along.  Athena is best suited with kids 6+ years old, and she does take some daily prescription meds that she will need to continue long-term. Athena is seeking an owner who isn’t gone long days, she’ll enjoy your company too much to have you away after all! She is about eight years old.

Athena’s adoption fee is $250 and includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations and preventives, a microchip with free lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.

If you can foster Athena, please contact us at or comment on this post. If you think Athena might make a good permanent addition to your home, please complete an adoption application HERE.
