athenaI was a little apprehensive about receiving a rescued dog. Previously I had raised my dogs from a puppy.  Athena is great. After the 1st couple of hissy fits by the cats and a responding growl by Athena things were fine. We had a little talk with Athena and close supervision, everything was fine.  I have friendly cats and within a day they were wandering near Athena and sitting on her blanket.  Now its almost as if she has always been here. We walk, she loves the back yard, she comes over for a pat. While walking and another person comes up, I have her sit to the side ‘till the person goes by. She is so sweet and wants to please.  I love her. A great dog.
