Meet Athena


Lovely Athena came to us thanks to friends at an area shelter where she'd landed as a VERY pregnant stray girl. Not long after her arrival, Athena safely delivered six beautiful, healthy puppies in the midst of a Missouri snowstorm! Three girls: Flurry, Frost, and Polar, and Three boys: Black Ice, Black Thunder, and Black Out.

Now that Athena's raised her little family to be ready to find their human families, Athena's ready for a home of her own!

Athena is heartworm positive, and now that her puppies are weaned, she can begin her treatments to get rid of those awful parasites for good.

But she needs a quiet, loving home to undergo her treatment and recovery process. Might that be your home?

Athena has been a perfect lady with every human she meets. As for dogs, while nursing her pups, she wanted nothing to do with them and did not want them near her puppies. That's not at all uncommon, though we don't know how she may evolve once she's on her own again.

But for now, a no-dogs home would be ideal for her heartworm treatment and recovery time.

If you'd love to be the one who helps Athena start the next chapter of a wonderful life, we'd love to hear from you.
