Athena is a 2-year-old female Great Dane from Ohio that was over-bred and not very well taken care of. Her owner kept breeding her and she developed a severe case of mastitis along with several mammary tumors that were not being looked after. This is an ugly side of back yard breeders and what they do; they breed and breed until the dog is used up. Lucky for Athena she was picked up by a shelter that gave the owners an ultimatum and she came to us. Athena is one sweet girl unaffected by the neglect; she loves being petted and loves, loves, loves people and is good with older kids. She is great with other dogs and cats are unknown but seems to have a low prey drive. She is just so sweet and will be getting her spay and any tumor removals on the 15th of September.
