Facts about Athena

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Athena is a 5 yr old female looking for a quiet home to spend the rest of her life giving her people lots of love. She would do best with no dogs and no children so you have time to help her grow. She does ok with dogs that are smaller than her and calm and quiet, just wanting companionship. We think she can live with a cat with help from her people since she does not have a prey drive. Athena loves car rides, nice easy walks, playing fetch and being by your side. She is a very sweet girl that is lacking confidence and needs just the right person for her to bond with and trust. Once she trusts you she is an extremely happy, bouncy girl that will bring joy into your life. We are asking for an experienced handler to help bring her out of her shell with a gentle manner and lots of encouragement. If you feel you are the right person for this pretty girl, please submit your application and more information will be discussed when approved. Athena is being fostered in Fort Morgan, CO and she will need multiple visits before the transition to her new home, please make sure you are up for the drive, thank you.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a German Shepherd Rescue of the Rockies Dog

We would like to thank you for visiting our website and considering one of our adoptable dogs to become your new family member. All of our dogs have been tossed aside for various reasons and our goal is to find them one last home where they can live out the rest of their lives with love and happiness. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities, we hope to be able to rescue many dogs every year. We place our dogs in a daycare facility so we can observe their social behavior and then into a foster home to learn house manners and teach them basic obedience. After we get to know our dogs we interview each candidate to find the right home that will fit each dog’s personality and needs. We will provide the necessary vet care, bring them up-to-date on vaccinations as well as spay or neuter our dogs. We will work with our rescue dogs that need a little help to trust and love people again, meanwhile improving their social behavior. We will stay involved and be there for each adopted dog for the duration of its life.

The adoption fee for our dogs is $300, which includes a veterinary heath examination, up-to-date vaccinations, a micro-chip, dogs will be spayed or neutered, they will come with a dog collar, and ID tag. Senior dog adoption fees will be posted separately for each dog.

If you see a dog on our website that you would like to meet, please fill out the Adoption Application and one of our volunteers will contact you.
