Catahoula Leopard Dog









Hi, I'm Athena, a very sweet and loving 3 year old female dog who just wants to sleep right next to you! I'm a little nervous since I was given up by my favorite person when their life changed and they moved into a place that didn't allow pets. I had a great life with my old family and now need someone to be my new BFF for the rest of my life.  I'm a little nervous about new dogs and need a little time and space until I feel comfortable with them. I bark when I'm nervous so a home with no other dogs might give your ears a break. No cats at my previous home or my foster's so don't know about cats. I LOVE kids, even the very littlest. I'm excellent on leash; not a fence jumper or digger and am crate trained. I love to run and chase so will do great in an active home. And I love to give kisses! I may be a little overly clingy at first but once I know I have a stable home life with my new family I'll be able to settle down and just become a great family pet who's willing to be part of all my family activities.

If you are interested in me, please send an email to to get more information on how to fill out an application and have a great meet and greet to see if we are a match made in heaven.
