Background: Aptly named after the Greek Goddess of wisdom, Athena is also the ideal of athleticism! She loves to go hiking and chase tennis balls, and she’s also an expert at pulling people on skateboards. Athena is smart and easy to teach, and she already knows the commands sit, come, leave it, wait, down and shake. Athena will bring endless fun and positive energy to her new home.
You can meet Athena and many other lovable pets at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
