She tugged on our heartstrings way to hard. We cannot let her go. I'm removing this post. My heart goes out to any foster dog parent. I week wit Athena and I'm hooked. I don't know how you do it. She is a very sweet puppy. mini Aussie Mix about 15 lbs, aprox 16' tall. My son got her 2 months ago and is not able to take care of her energy. She is a very smart puppy that needs training but she learns very quickly. Shy may have been abused because she is afraid of strangers. On her walk this morning she was hyper reactive to other dogs. We could not get her to calm down until the other dogs were past us. She is fine with our dogs, but our dogs are very calm and we allowed them to gently correct her bad behavior. She is a quick learner.
