Hi! My name is Athena. I am 1.5-2 yo and weigh about 45 lbs. I was turned into the rescue because my owners moved away and left me in a dog lot. A friend of the family was coming over and feeding me every day. I lived in the house till I was about 6 months old and then I was confined to a dog lot because of my abundant energy and lack of indoor manners. My owners did not work with me at all on basic obedience or leash walking. When I first came into the rescue, I would drag the foster all over the yard while on leash, jump up on people for petting, and was wide open with no house manners when indoors. I am now working with a trainer and I am quickly learning to heel/sit, not to jump on people, and basic obedience. I am working on house training. I'm very treat oriented and take treats gently. I am much calmer and much better behaved indoors after my sessions with the trainer because I've had enough exercise for that day. I really want to please, I just need to know what is expected of me. I need a home with someone that is active and can provide plenty of daily exercise for me. I also need to continue my training so that I can be the best companion possible. The rescue would really like for me to go to a family with Husky experience. I need a fenced yard so that I can run around and play. A playmate would be great also! I get along well with other dogs. I am a sweet, loving girl, and absolutely love to be petted. I'm happy to take all of the attention that I can get! I met one of the volunteers in a wheelchair, and had no fear of her. I went right to her and sniffed her chair and let her pet me. I am like a diamond in the rough! I am patiently waiting for my right forever home!
