Athena URGENT!'s Story...
Athena is a sweet, smooshy loving dog with a bad past and a bright future, if you give her a chance!

One look at Athena and you might not know that she is a sweetie! She may look tough, but she has shown zero aggression in her home. Once she sees her owner, she's all wags and kisses and love.

Though she is shy, Athena is a 70 pound ball of love and smooshiness. She had a rough past, but has been nothing but love and hugs after adjusting to her home. Though she is a little anxious (she likes to bark at things that scare her!), once you gain her trust, you will have it forever!

Athena loves other dogs and would love to find a home where other dogs can lead the way and show her that things aren't so scary! She also loves to snuggle in bed with her people - though watch your toes, those are a favorite toy of hers!

She LOVES kids, especially those who want to sit on a couch and watch a movie, or pet her, or scratch her, or give her treats. She will politely sit for a treat from a small hand, and will kiss kids on the mouth often. She gets right up to their face and then....slurp! And she has the BEST smooshy velvety face for kisses!

Athena is crate trained, and loves playing outside with other dogs.  She WANTS to be a normal dog. People failed her....this is not her fault. It may take her months to adjust to a new home, but it's worth it to see all the love she has to give hidden behind her fears!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena URGENT!, a Decatur American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Decatur, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Decatur.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Decatur already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Decatur breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Decatur paves the way for another one to be saved.
