Athena is a Dane/Lab mix that came in rescue as a owner surrender. She is overweight but doing well with her weight loss program. It really isn’t much. Just walking with her foster mom on short walks. She is currently on Carprofen for stiffness in her back right leg. Our vets have evaluated her and feel she will be able to get off the medicine after she looses weight. She is living with 3 other Danes but would prefer to be the only dog. She is very vocal in her play and can get rough at times. She loves to be the center of attention. She has grumbled over her food and special toys but corrects well with a stern “no”. She is completely house trained, trusted loose in the house for long periods, and very good on a leash. She will pull if she is enticed by a barking dog chasing the fence(neighbors dog) but responds to leave it and no. She does chase cats. I would suggest no cats. She does need help getting into a car but loves car rides, I think she will jump right in once she slims up a bit. Athena gets very excited over people food. She can be a little pushy but nothing some training wouldn’t fix. She does drool when nervous or people food is around. She is ready to become someones new family member.
