Facts about Athena

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Female
Athena is a smart, pretty, lovable, 15-month-old girl who loves to get treats, nuzzle with her people, run and chase squirrels. She is perfectly house trained, only chews on toys and is very particular about which chair she chooses to curl up in during the day.
She came into foster care after a month in the shelter and was very frightened and withdrawn. In a matter of weeks she has blossomed into a sweet and affectionate young lady. She needs love and patience to learn to trust again but, With treats, she was accepting and affectionate towards our family members within 24 hrs. Athena is truly deserving of a family of her own. She is certain to become one of the most lovable and bonded Danes in the right house.
Athena previously lived with a Beagle and a French Bulldog but did not get along with the Beagle. We will not place her in a home with small dogs. In her foster home she is living with a male Dane with no problems. Athena previously attended doggie day care and was a model client there, she does seem to enjoy socializing with other larger dogs. She has previously lived with cats but we do not know how she was with them. She has also lived with children with no problem. Given her trust issues we will not place her in a home with small children for safety sake.
Since Athena is still a youngster she will have a training requirement as part of her adoption contract.
Kids – 12+
Dogs – medium or large only

About Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue, Virginia Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc. (MAGDRL) was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. It now covers NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, VA, DC, and WV.

The organization is a DC corporation and has a charitable tax-exemption under code 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. Therefore, 100% of the funds donated to our organization goes to helping our Great Danes.

We do not have a central location. Our dogs live in the homes of volunteers who have offered to be foster families for our dogs.
