Do you love to snuggle and play? Me too! Hi, I am Athena, and I would love to love you. My favorite things in life are playing with my toys, dog friends and people, snuggling on you, napping, and exploring my environment. I am good on a leash, lead or fenced yard. My preference is a quieter house, I am shy and sometimes get nervous about unknown sounds. My foster mom says I have a lovable, playful, quiet yet energic personality.
While I will go into my kennel, I prefer to roam free. I love dogs of all sizes (but those closer to my size will be able to physically play with me) and I love all people, especially females. My foster mom is working with me on being potty trained, but sometimes I have accidents in the house. She also tells me I am smart and curious with a big heart. Sometimes I forget that I am 40 lbs. and I still want to be held like a small puppy. Lying next to or on you is where I will feel most comfortable. People always tell me that I am a beautiful girl with my light blue eyes and brown fur, but I just think I am lovable big girl that wants to be an active and important part of your family. I cannot wait to meet you!
Adoption Fee: $425

**Note on breed and age determination:
Breed and age are often determined on appearance, our own knowledge, veterinarian advice, and/or information from the sending shelters or previous owners. Most of our adoptable dogs were previously stray dogs with little history, we cant be 100% sure of a dogs breed mix, and unless there is a specific date of birth listed, we cant be 100% sure of a dogs age. Additionally, our assessments of a dogs interactions with other dogs, cats, or children are based on OUR experiences. Your experience may differ.
