Pet of the Week: Athena
Named after the Greek goddess of wisdom, Athena's curiosity to learn about the world around her knows no bounds!
This 9 month old German Shepherd mix is always on the go and loves attention.
Athena is young and an active breed and is prone to boredom, so she'll need a very active home. A young couple who loves to hike, bike, or run and are willing to add an exercise partner would be perfect for Athena.
She also needs someone with the time and energy to work with her; as she is an intelligent breed, she'd do well in obediance training. She's still got a lot to learn as a young dog, but will likely make a great companion for just the right person.
Other big dogs are ok, but she's not a fan of cats.
If you'd like to give Athena a loving forever home, you can find adoption applications at helpinghandsrescue.org or call (208) 743-3157. You can also visit Helping Hands at adoption day, every Saturday from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. at Petco.
