Meet Athena

My name is Athena! I'm a 2 year old puppy who weighs about 35 lbs and I love nothing more than playing! I take a little bit of time to trust new people -- would you like a stranger touching your belly?! Once I know who you are though, I'll love you forever! I'm a huge cuddle bug who will gladly jump in your lap and give you kisses. My main flaw is I need to be told "no" sometimes, since I don't always believe in personal space when I'm trying to love on you and just get SO excited to meet new people and new dogs! I'm completely house trained, and will jump at the door to go outside.

I've been training with NWB Dogs in Hood River and know some cool tricks. My foster dad from NWB knows me better than anyone and is more than willing to talk to anyone who might want to adopt me! I love playing with his dogs, but I should only be allowed to play with dogs that are relatively "submissive" -- meaning they won't fight me for toys or try to be the alpha dog all the time.

Athena came to us in May of last year as a pretty crazy (and crazy adorable) puppy. She's now 2 years old, and had lots of help from our favorite trainers at NWB learning to channel her energy and has turned into an amazing adult dog.

Her favorite thing by far is playing, with dogs, toys, and people alike. She is very enthusiastic about everything she does, including giving her human affection. She is 35 lbs of cuddle bug, and would make a great companion for a runner or hiker who can exercise with her.

She needs proper introductions to both new people and new dogs, since she takes a little while to trust newcomers. We don't recommend she live with kids due to this, since she doesn't always like being touched on her sides, belly, or tail (she may growl or snap if she doesn't know you well, but not bite).

The main thing Athena needs in an adopter is PATIENCE! She's sweet as pie and eager to please, and just has enough energy to maybe fuel a small car. She's currently trained using an E-Collar (which her foster will gladly show you how to use!) that helps get her attention and redirect her focus when she gets too excited.

HRAAD does not recommend her to a home with cats or children. Athena is current on shots, microchipped and spayed. The adoption fee for Athena is $150.
