Those eyes 😭❤️❤️
In September, construction workers spotted the 6-year-old German shepherd while walking to a job site in Southeast Texas. They gave the thirsty pup some water and notified the local rescue Be Intentional.
At the vet, an examination revealed that Athena was in rough shape: She had every parasite in her system. She also has one of the worst cases of sarcoptic mange the vet has seen.
But despite everything, all Athena wants is to snuggle. She is an absolute doll at the vet hospital.
While Athena was being treated for multiple infections, she learned that the best way to get love and extra treats was to hold up her bowl whenever one of her carers walked by. No one could resist the gentle dog’s begging — especially, after all she’s been through.
She gets lots of attention and plenty of food, But she has figured out that holding her bowl with her cute little face tends to get her more cuddles.
And soon, Athena will be ready to find her forever home. She will continue healing and transition to a life with love and a family.
Her life will be forever changed for the better.
We pray for this beautiful dog will soon adopted! ❤️🐾
