What kind of home would be best for me: Athena is a young, active girl looking for an active home. Another active dog in the home for playtime is a requirement. Athena has lived with small dogs and younger children. She is truly great with everyone. Her dream is an active home where her humans are home more than they are away (work from home, home school, stay at home, active retirees) and want a hiking and adventure friend.
What is my personality like: Athena is a young female Pit Bull Terrier who is seeking an active and playful forever home. She has been well loved and cared for as a young puppy. Sadly, life for Athena's humans changed and, despite their best efforts, they simply could not care for their beloved pup. She was lovingly surrendered to rescue to help her find the happily ever after Athena wants.
Athena loves meeting new people and canines. She is extremely playful and active and must have a home that will give her the daily stimulation and exercise she needs. Athena would prefer another active canine in the home, one who can keep her company and help exert her energy. She is leash trained and knows a few basic cues, but is still working on perfecting her crate training. Athena loves toys and warm fluffy beds, along with sunbathing and cuddling with her humans. She is pretty high energy and loves going on outdoor runs/hikes/adventures. This sweet girl would truly play all day long given the opportunity. Athena loves curling up in her humans’ lap and snoozing or just to receive attention.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Athena was estimated at 9 months old when surrendered to rescue. We celebrate her birthday 1/1/2023.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
