We love Athena dearly but circumstances out of our control are making it difficult to keep her. She will be 3 in December and she is AKC AS. We got her to go with our existing dogs to help protect our livestock. Problem is she is not good with livestock at all. We have had her to a special trainer twice and have trained her more extensively than our 5 other dogs but it seems she is missing that livestock guardian gene. All our other dogs are well trained and we've never had an issue until Athena. She makes the very BEST house dog. She listens, plays well and is 100% housebroken. She loves attention and cuddles and hugs. Unfortunately both my husband and I travel extensively for our jobs and our young adult children all moved out recently. She is lonely and left alone in a separate area outside when we are not home. We have over 60 acres so she has plenty of room in her area but with the high coyote population in our area, we can not afford to place one of our other dogs with her to keep her company. She is an alpha dog and does not do well with our other females...but she loves the males. She gets along great with our 5 barn cats. And she did well with our kids but they are older so we are not sure how she is around younger kids. Athena is super loveable and would make a great house dog with someone who is home often.
