Pet of the Week
This high-energy love bug likes to curl up in your lap and give you kisses. Could she be the next goddess in your life? Let’s find out:
Breed: Boston Terrier mix
Age: 3 years
Weight: 17 pounds
Personality: Athena likes frolicking about the dog park, playing tug-of-war and chasing tennis balls. In addition to being a bundle of energy, she is also quite the looker. She has a silky black-and-white coat, bright golden eyes, cute chocolate nose and ears that reach for the heavens.
Vital stats: Although she is heartworm positive, her treatments are free to her new family at any Dallas-Fort Worth VCA animal hospital after she is adopted. This provides the best total care for heartworm-positive dogs like Athena, as owners have access to emergency care and overnight stays if necessary.
Come meet Athena (#125869) today at the SPCA of Texas’ Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas at 2400 Lone Star Dr., near I-30 and Hampton Road. The center is open seven days a week, noon-6 pm.
