My name is Athena.  I am an approximately 7 year-old female pit bull mix. I am full of personality and love toys.  I am looking for a home without other animals, but I am all that you will need! I am an easy going girl and would love nothing more than to be your companion. Car rides are my favorite thing!! I have been at Speranza for over two and a half years. I would love to find a family of my own!


My story is crazy.  I had a human family, but my mom attacked my dad; I stepped in to protect him and I was stabbed several times in the back in the process.  I healed from my wounds, but ended up on evidence hold all by myself in a shelter for two years before coming to Speranza. Once Janine heard my story and saw my face, she knew that I needed to be at Speranza.   I settled right in here and have loved life on the farm ever since.

I know basic commands and take treats so gently. I do not mind being handled while eating and I am completely kennel trained. Sometimes I don’t want to go for a walk; I just want to sit and enjoy a snuggly outdoor moment with my person.  Other times I am ready to run and you’d better be too!
