Athena's Story...
Meet Athena!

Athena is a stunning, young Corso mix who is the most gentle dog you could imagine! Athena came to us when we noticed her in the back of the shelter called "unloading". She seemed so timid and immediately, we noticed that she walked on her wrists vs her actual paws causing her to make a distinct "plop" sound when she walked. We knew she may need therapy for her to learn to walk properly, but she was so dog-friendly and sweet, we had to take her with us.

Fast forward to a month in foster care, her feet (with the help of daily joint supplements) have self-corrected and now she's a normal, goofy 6 month old dog! Athena loves other dogs! She is such a cuddler and will find the other dogs just to go lay right next to them. It will absolutely melt your heart because you can tell she finds so much comfort and confidence with other dogs. She is currently in foster care with three dogs- 2 large Pitties and a tiny Chihuahua and she's amazing with all of them.
She also likes the cat! She's very respectful of his space so she would do well in a home with a variety of animals.

Athena is gentle with children and loves people in general. She's great in the car and is a relatively quiet- she barely barks! She's a very special dog and we are sure she'll get a lot of attention so please fill out an application immediately if you'd like to meet her! Our application can be found at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena, a Warrenville Cane Corso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cane Corso for sale in Warrenville, or seeking a Cane Corso dog from a breeder in Warrenville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Warrenville 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 Warrenville 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 Cane Corso breeders who help with Cane Corso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Warrenville paves the way for another one to be saved.
