Hi friends!  My name is Athena and I'm the WBKR SPARKY Pet of the Week.

A girl is never supposed to reveal her age but I am a youthful 2 years old. I came to SparKY after I was found with a broken back on the side of the road in April 2020. No one claimed me so SparKY stepped in to help me get better, I had a long recovery as my back took several months to mend. I am able to move my hind legs but unfortunately, I am no longer able to support my weight on them due to the nerve damage in my spine. I have a doggie wheelchair to help me walk when I go outside or in the house. I also have drag bags which I use inside so as I don’t get carpet burn on my legs, my foster mom says I am the fastest two-legged dog you will meet.

I am very much a beagle, I love to sniff all the things when I am outside and will follow my nose if you let me. I know the song of my people and have a very soulful beagle voice.

I wear diapers as I leak urine a little no shame in my game. My foster mom will express my bladder so that I stay drier but it is not necessary for me to have it done as I can use the potty when I go outside or if you hold me over a toilet or a pee pad.

I love hanging with all my friends and housemates. I require a fenced-in yard or someone to stay with me outside because I like to follow my nose wherever the smells take me.

I will come with a lot of baggage including; my cart, drag bags, and cloth diapers. I have a very soulful expression. I love to have my head patted and my neck rubbed.

I am looking for my fur-ever home, will you please adopt me? I promise to be a good girl.
