Athena – Adopted!!!
Meet Athena! Athena became a mommy dog on 1/28/18 and she is now ready for adoption! She delivered a nice healthy litter of puppies: 4 boys and 4 girls! We are currently accepting applications for these little ones and there are 1 male and 1 female who are still looking for their forever homes—Tito, and Marti!
Athena is still a young pup herself at just barely a year old and weighing in at 65lbs and should be topping out around mid 70lbs. This beautiful German Shepherd/Black & Tan Coonhound mix is such a doll. She is a super affectionate pup and would gladly spend all day hugging her people if they allowed her. Athena has lived with quite a menagerie of doggy friends, and we think it is safe to say that no matter what size or age pup is in your home Athena will do well! She enjoys playing, going to the dog park, wrestling all day with any dog willing, but she is more than happy to give someone space if they ask for it and will self entertain herself with a bone instead!
Athena has proven to be a very smart and well-mannered gal. She knows how to sit, lay down, and show her belly on command – and she is working on learning how to shake paws! She is also fully housebroken and crate trained, and has become a lot better at walking on her leash, but still needs some more time before she fully masters walking on a loose lead. Right after her babies were born, Athena had full run of the house while Foster Mom was away from home so she could tend to her babies. Never once did Foster Mom come home to an accident or anything inappropriately chewed, so Athena may not even need her kennel! But, Athena does love her kennel! Given the chance between being free to sleep anywhere in the house vs sleeping in her kennel, she will choose her kennel! When Foster Mom gets dinner ready, Athena walks to her kennel, goes inside, and patiently sits licking her lips for her delicious bowl of kibble to arrive!
Athena’s personality is becoming more bubbly and excitable each day as she realizes her days of being a mom are finally over and she is finally allowed to be a puppy herself. She has the most adorable habit of picking up a toy and just slowly tossing it around. She is really enjoying having plenty of toys to play with now that her mama work is over. She is a regular at the dog park and loves to just run her heart out playing with all her new friends! Athena is sure to be a fun pup and a wonderful addition to any family so apply today!
