Athena was once the "office dog" at Austin Pets Alive! She was so calm and businesslike that she was happy to lounge in the office to monitor the staff - and get rewarded with their petting.

Today, this affectionate girl is in foster care, where she's happy to cuddle with the family on a bean bag chair, snooze in her bed or bask in the sunshine. She loves to tussle and romp with her Australian Shepherd housemate, sharing dog beds and toys with him. When she's had enough romping, she'll let him know she's off for a nap or roam in the yard. She greets visitors by leaning on them, asking for pets, and eagerly climbing on their laps if they sit on the floor. Say her name, and Athena will let you know how much she loves the attention by thumping her wagging tail.

Athena requires a fenced yard where she won't be overstimulated by bicyclists, which she finds startling. She is a low energy girl, perfect for couch potatoes who also don't need to take long walks, and she's a great companion for a low-energy lifestyle. She's a house trained girl who will be glad to move in with you and monitor your home office computer time. Come meet Athena, let her wag her way into your life!

Do You Scoop the Poop?

You've heard it from us once, and you'll hear it from us many more times: Austin, please scoop the poop! But don't take it from us, take it from the experts.
