ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - ABC Action News works with local shelters to help find homes for dogs every Friday morning our Pet of the Week segment.

With a statuesque build and gorgeous golden eyes, Athena is truly a goddess you can bring into your home.

She is a 2-year-old, 70 pound All-American girl who previously raised puppies and is now ready to be pampered. If you are looking for happy, energetic and big dog, this girl is for you.

Athena will do best in a home with no small children. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed. Her adoption fee is $200.
