Athena is a young shepherd mix pup.  She loves to explore outside, go for walks, and play. She would be an excellent candidate for agility training. Like many shepherds she wants to work - nose work, agility work, anything that uses her brain power. She's incredibly smart! Athena would like to be the only dog in the home. She has lots of energy and will need an adopter who can work with her. She will be best with young children as she is strong, jumps and may knock down small kids. She can jump a 6 ft fence. She will need to work with a trainer past adoption.
She is looking for an active family that is willing to walk, run, and exercise her! She hasn't met a cat, but would most likely chase them. She does jump when she gets excited so we are working on that right now.
She is capable of jumping a 4ft chain link fence. A privacy fence or tie out is preferred, but not required. 
If you are interested in meeting her please fill out an adoption application or email her foster:

Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.

Please understand the statements about this animal are based upon the foster home's evaluation of the animal. The animal might behave differently (negatively or positively) in your home. While the animal might be good with the current foster’s dogs, cats, children, etc., it may not be with your animal(s) or children. The animal may be housebroken or litter trained in the home of the foster but may relapse in your home. The animal is represented to the public as it performs in the foster home and any statements made regarding the animal are conditional to that foster home setting. Please understand that statements made regarding this animal are simply overviews and are not guaranteed.

The system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.

Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes and choosing rescue first. We appreciate you stopping by.
