Meet Athena

ATHENA'S ADOPTION COMES WITH FOUR FREE TRAINING SESSIONS WITH NWB DOGS!
Adorable Athena is searching for her forever home! How can you say no to her smile and neverending tail wags?! Athena is about 1.5 years old and, you're not going to believe it, but we DNA tested her and she is 50% Staffordshire Bull Terrier, 12.5% SAMOYED (crazy!), and 12.5% mixed breed! This girl LOVES to play! Squeaky toys, balls, and stuffed animals are the coolest! She'll toss 'em around herself or gleefully bring them to you for a game of fetch. Athena is SUCH a smart dog that we enrolled her in the phenomenal NW Balanced Dog Training program where she is learning to be a very good girl. She's got her tricks like sit, stay, & shake nailed down, but she is still working on her leash and play skills. Athena is highly alert and and anxious. She can get very tense and rambunctious in new situations, crowded/public areas, and when meeting new dogs, especially when on leash. NWB Dogs tells us she is improving every day, but she absolutely needs an experienced owner that will consistently work with her and give her an outlet for her energy and stress. She needs gradual, controlled introductions to new dogs to help her be successful in socializing. NWB Dogs has generously offered 4 free training classes with her and her new adopters so she can continue the great work she has started! She is a phenomenal dog who will steal your heart, but she needs an owner willing to continue training and working with her. She would also prefer a quieter household with not a lot of coming and going. She thrives with a routine. She's super intelligent and would likely benefit from a mental outlet like agility training or frisbee! We do not recommend her to a home with cats or children. It is important to acknowledge that Athena has had a rough past with abuse and poor socialization, so while she is trying her hardest to please you, there will be rough patches along the way. She just needs someone to be patient with her so she can be a loving and loyal companion to them! Athena is current on shots, microchipped and spayed. The adoption fee for Athena is $175. WE ARE A SUPER BUSY, SMALL GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS, AND ASK THAT YOU TURN IN AN APPLICATION FROM OUR WEBSITE AHEAD OF TIME AND WE'LL BE IN TOUCH TO SCHEDULE A MEET AND GREET, AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THIS DOG. WWW.HOODRIVERADOPTADOG.ORG. Since many of our dogs are in foster, we need an application ahead of time to make sure the dog is onsite for you to visit at the Hukari Animal Shelter in Odell - 3910 Heron Dr, Hood River OR 97031. Adoption hours are Wed 5-7 and Sat 9-11. Applications can be downloaded and scanned/emailed to: hoodriveradoptadog@gmail.com, or fax it in to 1-877-833-7166. We offer 24PetWatch microchips, which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service. For more information visit www.24petwatch.com or call 1-866-597-2424.
