Pet of the Week

Are you looking for a sweet survivor?


What’s got two eyes, two ears, three legs and wants to go home with you? Athena!

Are you looking for a sweet survivor? Well, they don’t come much more inspiring than our warrior goddess Athena! This lady has been fighting for her future ever since she lost her front leg at 4 months old. Now, at 5 years old, she’s become a confident cuddle bug that’s house trained and knows what she wants – and that’s a home with cats and without other dogs. Play dates are fine, but living with another dog full time is just too much for her. If you are looking for a dog that’s all about snuggles and smooches and doesn’t need long walks, then you could be a match made in heaven for Athena
