1611044 - Athena -- Just look at me, I am little lab/hound mix gal who strayed away from my home and ended up in the Denison Pound on Morton Street. My family did not claim me from the pound, and I've been moved to the DAWG House, 3307 S Eisenhower Pkwy, where the volunteers are caring for me and I am available for adoption to a forever home. Adoptions are $60 and includes spay surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations and microchip. Everyone loves a puppy, but before you think about bringing me home there are a couple of things you need to consider. I am probably a blank slate- I'm probably not housetrained (potty-trained), chew trained, and don't know much of anything yet. Like a new baby, I will need a lot of attention, a lot of love, and constant supervision.
