Athena, Goddess of War.

Athena, Goddess of War.

We got a call for an owner surrender, so I hop into my car and drive the hour and a half out to pick up this little unwanted puppy. I get there and the guy carries the puppy out and puts her down and pushes her towards me with his food. "take that Bitch away" he grumbles at me about this cowering little mess of a thing. I reached down to pick her up and she yelps like Ive just backhanded her. I scoop her up and coo to her that she is alright, she is shaking in my arms. I want to see the inside of the guys house, I want to see if there are more dogs in this shape. Athena has little bite marks all over her, they look like puppy bites and I want to see if the other puppies are inside. I ask to see what crate she was kept in so I can get the same one to make her comfortable, No Go. He won't let me in but some days its better to rescue the ones you can, so I get in my car and drive away. The next morning we go to the vet right away and Athena has a bad infection under her arms from a bunch of cuts and punctures, she also has a cigarette burn on her head. We put her on antibiotics, they will heal fine, and so will her tiny heart. While Athena went through a horrific time, she is a bully breed and true to their nature, she is still wagging her little tail and licking my face. Athena is shy but becoming braver as she realizes that I wont hurt her and not all people suck. Athena is looking for her forever home.
