~ Jamie, Matt and Athena ~
Just over a year ago, Jamie and Matt met Athena, a beautiful Doberman pup. Since then, they have become a family and have formed a very strong bond.
Jamie had been wanting to adopt a dog for a very long time. Then one day in 2021, she and Matt heard via social media there was a litter of nine puppies who were looking for their forever homes. Jamie was instantly drawn to one puppy in particular. She had a red tag on her collar and something about her stood out. Matt and Jamie decided then that she was the perfect puppy and named her Athena.
Having Athena has been life-changing for both Jamie and Matt. She has brought so much happiness into their home and has helped Jamie to become more confident around dogs. Not only this, but she has also given her humans a new perspective on life and to appreciate the smaller things in life.
During the Covid-19 lockdown in New Zealand, Jamie and Matt were immensely grateful to have Athena. It was a very stressful time, but she encouraged them to go out for walks, to play and provided them with a positive distraction every day. She made the difficult situation so much better just by being herself.
Being a Doberman, Athena loves to be active. Jamie and Matt often take her out to parks, beaches and for tiki tours around Auckland. They enjoy finding new places to explore and seeing Athena so happy to be somewhere different. She loves to sniff around, run, play and just appreciate her new surroundings. Jamie and Matt have even been keen to take her camping, something they loved to do before adopting Athena.
Athena means the absolute world to Jamie and Matt. She has brought endless joy and so much love into their lives. They all mean so much to each other and she fills every happiness and adventure.
