Pet Of The Week

March 10, 2010

Athena is a 9-month-old female American Staffordshire terrier. She is medium-sized and a beautiful taupe color with white markings and light greenish gold eyes. She is stray and no owner came to claim her.

Timid in certain situations, she will flourish with a new owner who will teach her confidence with their steady love and guidance.

Although only a puppy, Athena seems to have the poise and demeanor of a more mature canine. She does not know basic commands but never pulls at a leash or asserts herself in error. She loves to chase items thrown for her and does ballet-type leaps while attempting her style of retrieving them. She will probably like your other dog, but to be safe, bring him/her with you to be introduced.


If you are interested in meeting her, contact the Burbank Animal Shelter and inquire about ID No. A031325.

The animal shelter is at 1150 N. Victory Place, Burbank. For more information, call (818) 238-3340.
