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 our best guess on breed is a Border Collie/Pittie mix. 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 as she's a bit stronger than she realizes and needs to work on toning it down a notch. NWB Dogs tells us she is improving every day! Since Athena is very playful and curious about other dogs, she can get pretty rambunctious and riled up quickly. She needs to go to a home that will work with her on proper doggy introductions. NWB Dogs has generously offered 4 free training classes with her & her new adopters so she can continue the great work she's 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's super intelligent and would likely benefit from a mental outlet like agility training or frisby! Athena is a total lovebug that isn't shy about wiggling into your lap for some love. We do not recommend her to a home with cats or young/small children. 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.
