Shepherd Cross siblings Atena and her brother Zeus were found as abandoned puppies in the countryside. They were taken to a local shelter, where they lived in a communal enclosure with around thirty other dogs.  

In February, Atena and Zeus moved to SOS so that we can find them suitable homes. 

Both dogs were shy and timid to begin with, but are becoming more confident and enjoy attention and fuss from our volunteers. Lead training is going well, and they enjoy their free time in the garden and will come when called. We have started walking them separately so that they become more independent of one another. They are kind, gentle dogs who are cautious but curious. Atena is the more confident and less sensitive of the two. 

Due to their sheltered start in life, both dogs have some catching up to do in terms of environmental experiences. For this reason, we are looking for a family or families prepared to continue working with them in a kind and compassionate manner. If Atena is homed without her brother, she would ideally need a home where there is already another dog. 

Born in July 2021, Atena and Zeus are neutered, leishmaniasis negative, and have EU-issued PET passports. Atena is 56cm tall and currently weighs 17kg.
