Athena was a rescue dog that our family took in back in 2012. She was approximately 6 months old at the time as has been with us since. She is a great guard dog but a bit lazy as she sleeps most of the day now as she is an adult. She is good with people but animal aggressive with larger dogs so she would need a home with out current dogs. Regarding her breed, vets could not give me a straight answer but i believe she is a Rhodesain Ridgeback. All in all, she is a great companion.
