Meet Athena

Athena is an 8-year-old female Dane. She came into the rescue when her parents separated and they no longer had space to care for her. Athena is house and leash trained, but will pull a bit if something catches her interest. She is easily redirected verbally and continues on her merry way.

She is currently living with two younger dogs. She enjoys running around the yard with them, and will correct them if their play becomes too enthusiastic. There are also two cats in her foster home, and after some initial curiosity she has decided they are not very interesting.

Athena enjoys squeaky toys and playing fetch. She knows basic commands like sit, down, and shake. She sleeps through the night on a dog bed in the master bedroom. She is eating in the same room with the other dogs, and has not shown any food aggression. She is a slow and dainty eater, as you would expect of a dignified senior lady.

She loves attention and giving kisses.

She has a large, benign lipoma on her neck. It does not seem to bother her or cause her any discomfort. The vet feels due to her age and the location of the lipoma that it is too risky to remove. Otherwise Athena is in excellent health for her age. Vision and hearing are normal, and she moves well without any stiffness.
