This gorgeous dog was abandoned in a train yard on Christmas, 2020. Once we were notified she came under our rescue in January, 2021. Athena has come a long way since she joined us. Previously, if over stimulated by petting she'd growl and snap, not aggressively, but as a "l've had enough". This behavior is believed to be as a result of Athena being physically abused. We proceeded to teach her the muzzle was a good thing, and as time passed she began to trust no harm would come her way ever again. Extremely affectionate and lively with personality, Athena walks perfectly on a leash, obeys all commands, sits and waits for her food, loves to snuggle with all the people, including strangers, she encounters on a daily basis!
Athena was not afforded heartworm prevention by her previous owners. She is on a highly effective protocol which will render her heartworm free by November.
Everyone who has met this girl loves her! She is tolerant of other dogs, has never shown any harshness, but would thrive as being the only dog. Athena has not been tested with cats, but we suspect she'd be respectful. A quiet home where Athena is the light of someone's life would be her ideal home.
We have a nutritional program that stands high in providing dogs their every need. Feed a dog to do more than survive. Feed a dog to thrive. Our dogs are fed top quality kibble -- rotating manufacturers -- fresh fruits and vegetables, raw egg and raw protein daily. At bedtime all our dogs are given a hunk of fresh sweet potato. Not only do they love the treat, it serves to clean their teeth! There is nothing to support feeding the same manufacturer bag after bag. No one dog food has it all. One formula cannot provide a dog's nutritional needs long term. Food rotation -- VARIETY -- covers all the bases for a dog's natural biological needs.
