Personality: Athena is the most gentle and loving dog you’ll ever find. You can say she’s an actual angel. She’s very quiet and doesn’t bark much. She loves to snuggle up next to your lap and loves to sleep under the blankets by your feet. Athena has such a goofy personality and does everything with a smile on her face.

Why she was brought to the rescue: She was an owner surrender due to their other dogs’ health issues and expenses that came along with it.
