Sassy, playful, and full of energy, this pretty pooch will keep you on your toes! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Athena, a little over one year old Pit Bull Terrier mix from Aurora, Colorado. This sweet girl is spayed, house trained, crate trained, and up to date on her vaccines. Athena is a friendly and loving dog but doesn’t get along with other dogs or cats so she should be the only pet in the household. While she doesn’t mind kids, due to her size and energy levels, it’s best she goes to an adult-only home.

Athena’s Tale

All Athena wants is to be showered in love- and she eagerly shows it. Not only is she the sweetest, most affectionate pupper but she’s also keen to please her hoomans so she’s very motivated to learn new tricks and listen to commands. She’s already potty trained and crate trained, does great on and off leash, and she’s gone through a training program through her rescuers so she’s ready for a new home and a family that could grow with her.

Athena is an outdoorsy, active pooch that will love spending her days playing, exploring the great outdoors, and going on walks and hikes with her peeps. After she’s knackered out, she’ll happily curl up with you on the sofa for some belly rubs and snuggling. Athena is a sweet and friendly dog but hasn’t had the chance to hang out with other dogs much so she can be fearful or overly excited when she meets other dogs, so it’s recommended she goes to a home where she would be the only pet- or with an experienced adopter who could help her socialize. She’s good with kids, too, but she’s big and full of energy, so it’s best if the kids in the family are older than 5 years.

For those of you that are enchanted by Athena’s big smile and an even bigger heart, contact Colorado Puppy Rescue for more information about the adoption process.
