Hands helping paws find their furever homes in the Virginia, Maryland and DC areas
American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat) : : Female : : Adult : : Medium
Meet Athena! She is about 4 years old and is 45 pounds.
Her foster mom says that she is an easy dog to have around the house. Read on to see if she is the right match for your family!
Looking for a side kick? Athena is ready to step up to the challenge! She is very affectionate and follows her humans everywhere. This girl is a cuddle bug who LOVES people!
She is dog and kid friendly. However, she is not a cat person. There's one in every crowd, right?
Athena is super a playful girl who gets the zoomies, which are very cute to watch! Her favorite toys are stuffed animals.
She loves all treats, especially carrots, which is a major win because they are low calorie and good for her teeth.
Athena knows basic commands. She is crate trained but may whine in her crate occasionally. She sometimes counter surfs, so her future family must be aware of leaving hazardous things in her reach, and plan to continue training to overcome this.
Since Athena loves her people so much, she hopes to be adopted by a family who will spend as much time with her as they can, such as someone who works from home, or a family with a staggered schedule so she is not alone often, or a family who will take her with them everywhere.
If you are ready to give Athena a furever home, please apply to adopt her today! She cannot wait to meet you either.
If you wish you could adopt her but are not able to, please share her information on social media to help her find her furever home, and consider donating towards her care while she waits for her furever home.
