ADOPTED ON 01-20-23 Our new ward, Athena, is a 10-month-old, sable coat, female German shepherd that is now ready for adoption. This girl is a wide open, physically perfect, fearless, loving, extremely intelligent and happy definition of the breed. I did mention that MS Athena is a puppy didn’t I? If you are looking for a laid back, couch potato this girl is not for you but if you are looking for a hike loving, play loving, training loving, jogging loving sidekick she is perfection. Do not get me wrong, Athena is a loving, happy, cuddle bunny that really only wants time with her person. As with most shepherds, this girl is loyal, super smart, observant, dedicated, curious and processes an in control protective instinct.
Athena has all of the tools and could have been trained to be a working dog, for that manner, still could be. Our girl thrives on training and has very few limits. As you would expect, Athena, has great symmetry, perfect gait and glides like the wind when she runs. We have this girl to be people, child and other dog friendly but as you would expect she is not going to be pushed around. Athena handled our socialization and training programs with ease showing a high desire to train, a strong people drive, high curiosity and an extremely high intelligence. As her trainer, I can tell you from experience, that any limits this dog has will strictly associated the limitations of her future training environment. The adopter of this girl will have the expertise, time, commitment, love and patience to bring her to the levels that she can achieve.
