Athena tested negative at her recent heartworm recheck and is now completely finished with her treatment and all restrictions. She continues to build her trust and confidence with people. Athena can be fearful with new dogs still, so will need a home willing to do slow introductions to help her feel comfortable. She absolutely loves the grandchildren in her foster home. Athena will play chase and hide n seek with them. She also really enjoys car rides. Athena has the run of the house during the workday and has always been very well behaved.

Athena will be rechecked soon to determine if any follow up is needed regarding her heartworm treatment. She is building her trust and confidence with new people.

Athena has free run of the house while her foster family is at work and she is very well behaved.
Athena has completed her heartworm treatment and is currently on six weeks of rest until her next recheck. She is happy to back in her foster home and is recovering well. Included are some updated photos of this beautiful girl
Athena is doing well in her foster home. She has the run of the house for about 7-8 hours a day. Athena is housebroken and does not bother anything. She needs slow introductions to adults, children, and other dogs. Athena is now comfortable around the grandchildren in her foster home (ages 9, 8, 6, and 2 yrs). She can be overwhelmed with a lot of activity, though. Athena has spent so much of her previous time enclosed in a pen and viewing her environment from behind a secure, safe fence. She now has to learn to deal with everything on the other side and it can be a bit overwhelming. Athena continues to build confidence and trust with each day. She will be starting her heartworm treatment next month.
Athena was surrendered along with her puppy, Beauty, to find a home that can provide more time and attention for each of them. Her previous owner purchased Athena from Craigslist. She was malnourished and in very poor shape. Athena has been living outside for the past year. She is reported to be good with other dogs, but Athena does chase cats.
Athena was very nervous on her transport. She arrived at her new foster home and is settling in well. Athena is becoming more comfortable with each day. Her foster mom reports that she is housebroken and will let you know when she needs to go out. She is very sweet and loves being close to her family.
When Athena was brought up to date on vet care, we discovered that she is heartworm positive. She will begin her treatment soon. Please consider sponsoring Athena and donating towards her heartworm treatment.
