Available Dogs

It’s very important that if you’re interested in any of these pups, you make sure you have researched just what a Siberian Husky is. They’ve all lost at least one home already. So the next one must be their last! Just as you would with children, you must be willing to work through whatever issues come up. Please only apply to adopt if you are prepared to do just that. If you are ready, that’s fantastic!

Taro – Adoption Pending!

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
111 pounds 🙁 (as of 3/26/17)
Experience with Children:
I have lived with children, including one with special needs, since 2012 with all positive interactions.
Experience with Cats:
I was cat-tested by Pet Harbor in 2012 and failed miserably.
Experience with Dogs:
From 2012 to 2017, I lived with a male Pomeranian. My interactions with other dogs Pet Harbor has witnessed have all been positive, including dogs of various sizes at dog parks.
Energy Level:
Low but will be medium when I return to a healthy weight.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Novice, but you MUST help me continue on my weight loss path so we can have a long, healthy, and happy life together.
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Ronald Tartaro.
History:
I lost my first home when I was 1-1/2 years old because my human decided he no longer had time for me. I then was adopted in March 2012. In 2017, I lost my second home because my human decided he no longer had time for me. ENOUGH! It is time I have my forever home. No more homelessness and no more abuse. For my human to allow my weight to be DOUBLE what it should be is abusive. NO MORE! I want to live!
Movies:
  1. March 2017. To celebrate International Puppy Day, why, I play with a puppy, of course!
  2. March 2017. Let’s congregate!
  3. In 2012, I starred in Playtime at the Apollo

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: MY 2017 BIO: Do you know what an IFD is? Why, it’s an issue-free dog, of course. Some think perfect dogs are boring. I think perfect dogs are just that: perfect! Why do I think that? Because I wrote the definition of IFD! That’s why! So issue-free, I’ll bet I could get a security clearance! Sadly, someone has sabotaged my existence by allowing me to weigh double what I should. Extra weight on someone my size can be devastating to the joints. My foster dad, though, is helping me get back to a healthy weight. So that is my only issue, and it is certainly a temporary one. Do you want to go to dog parks? No problem at all! I socialize with all the dogs: young, old, small, large, male, female. A perfect Casanova, huh? Speaking of Casanova, I hope you enjoy kisses because I’ve got plenty of them for you. And, of course, if you love to give belly scratches, no problem! I”m all yours! Do you need exercise like I do? No problem. Let’s go! I love to walk, and I am building up my stamina. Soon, I’ll be happily taking long, long walks or even running! I look forward to the day I can really run and play with my Siberian brethren. Happy, healthy (My weight has not affected my health yet, and it won’t because I’m on the downhill side of it.), loving, friendly. Really, I go back to the beginning. I’m an issue-free dog.

MY 2012 BIO: Best home for me is totally ready for a PUPPY because I am ALL PUPPY! Complete goofball. Loving, funny, high-energy, dramatic, loud, a big sissy. I can live with other dogs or without other dogs, but I’m not a dog you can ignore. I don’t stop for a minute. I’m like a 2-yr-old child – always on the go, go, go. When I sit, I push into you. When I stand, I jump, bounce, kiss, play. No down time. I’m not a quiet dog and, therefore, would not be a good apartment dog. I would, however, be a great dog for someone who wants built-in entertainment. My main job is that of a clown! My second job is like Charmin because I’m so adorable you just wanna squeeze!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
69 pounds (as of 2/25/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with multiple children ages 0 to 18, and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
On 3/12/17, I was cat-tested. I rushed the cats and bit a kitty’s foot. No, no cat was harmed in the test, but I am unable to live safely with cats. Before coming to rescue, I was tested with a shelter cat described as “fearless” and “spunky.” I was not reactive.
Experience with Dogs:
Before coming to Pet Harbor, I lived with Rhodes, who already found his forever home. We got along great. At Pet Harbor, I have met dogs similar in size to me. I get along with them all. However, at events, I act like that other name for female dogs (bitch) towards other dogs, snappy/growly, what my foster mom says is typical female Siberian Husky behavior.
Energy Level:
Medium
Owner Aptitude Level:
Novice
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Manuel Dejesus Molina.
History:
My humans were elderly and found they just could no longer take care of me. My human dad put Rhodes, who already found his forever home, and me into a shelter. While doing so, he sobbed because it broke his heart to lose us. You will see my parents took great care of us. We’re happy, well-fed babies with awesome personalities.
Movies:
  1. I am Molina. I will melt in your hands!
  2. Just a cameo
  3. Always the center of attention

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: All I really want is someone to snuggle with me. Are you my snuggler? Just give me a few ear, tummy, or back scratches, and I’ll be putty in your paws. Toss me a few treats, and you’ve got an idolizer! Really, I’m sweet and not rambunctious. I have no clue why anyone would want to look further than me. Besides that, I’m super beautiful. Don’t you agree? Happy, too. Always happy. My only negative is I cannot be contained alone in a crate, but I’ll bet you feel the same and don’t want to be in crates either. Right? Really, I love snuggling and want to do that 24 hours a day. Don’t you love that, too?

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Grey & white, blue eyes
Weight:
68 pounds (as of 4/8/17)
Experience with Children:
I am brand new to Pet Harbor. Not a lot about my history is known. All that is known is from Nov 2016 to April 2017, I lived with children, with no issues reported to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with a 3-year-old child and have displayed only positive reactions to him.
Experience with Cats:
I have a reported history of killing multiple small animals. So to keep the cats safe, Pet Harbor will not cat-test me or place me in a home with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
My history with dogs is unknown. Pet Harbor tested me with dogs similar in size to me, and I had positive reactions, even to the grumpy one. I wagged my tail and sought play. Since coming to foster care, I have had only positive interactions with females and non-dominant males in foster care. To dominant male dogs, I bark and grumble but don’t fight. In other words, I’ll puff out my chest and flap my wings, but I’m all bark. How’s that for combining literary expressions? All the dogs Pet Harbor has seen me interact with in foster care are about 40 pounds and up.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Felicia Hamilton.
History:
Pet Harbor does not know my history prior to Nov 2016. In Nov 2016, people got me and did not take care of me. As a result, several animals, such as chickens, opossums, and a baby pig, sadly, lost their lives. So that no more animals would have to die, I came to Pet Harbor.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: First and foremost, you must understand Siberian Huskies. That means you cannot consider me a lawn ornament. I belong in the house with the rest of my family. When I exercise, I must have a tall fence. I am too smart to create my own fences where fences do not already exist. I am, after all, a Siberian Husky and true to my breed. Speaking of lawn ornaments, also true to my breed, I will be happy to landscape for you if you leave me unattended outside. Siberians should have jobs, right? You must love me enough to feed me daily. You eat every day, right? So should I. You must love me enough to take care of my vaccines and medical care. I’m a loving and quite happy boy who likes to wag a lot. The love you show me, I will return several times over. And am I not the most handsome fellow you have ever seen?

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
50 pounds (as of 4/10/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with children ages 0-18 so far and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
My history with cats is unknown. So far, Pet Harbor has only done a preliminary cat test. During that test, I glanced at the kitties and lost interest. That is not yet a definitive test.
Experience with Dogs:
My history with dogs is unknown. I have met small dogs and play with them. I have met dogs my size and play with them. I have met larger dogs and play with them. I am, though, what one could consider a typical dominant female Siberian. Women rule!
Energy Level:
Medium (so far)
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Elizabeth (Lisa) Martin Gregg.
History:
For the crime of running at large, I landed myself in the pokey and came to Pet Harbor from there.
Movies:

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Do you think you have a couch? Forget about it! It’s mine. Do you think you have a bed? Forget about it! It’s mine. Do you think you can ignore me? Forget about it! I have plenty to say about that. My voice is melodious, though. So basically I do whatever is in my repertoire to get your attention. I go belly-up for tummy scratches. I look into your eyes and woo if you attempt to do something other than give me attention. I give you soft “Pick me!” kisses to raise my hand (paw). Lots of soft, fluffy fur that would love to sit with you while you brush it! Full of love. Just looking for a place to plant it (and a couch to plant my hiney). I did test positive for heartworm disease. So while you can certainly adopt me on paper, I cannot be considered fully adopted until my treatment has finished, which should be by the middle of May.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
56 pounds (as of 3/22/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with multiple children ages 0 to 18, and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
My history with cats is unknown. I quickly failed Pet Harbor’s cat test. I focused intently on the cats and tried incessantly to get to them, not in a good way. For example, hear what I do when I see a cat on the other side of the door.
Experience with Dogs:
In foster care, I have mostly ignored other dogs because my desire is to spend 100% of my time with humans. However, I have expressed dislike of dominant male dogs. I haven’t been neutered long. So this may curtail. I have had only positive interactions with females and non-dominant males in foster care. All the dogs in foster care are about 40 pounds and up.
Energy Level:

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Sebastian Gorki.
History:
I landed myself in a rural shelter because I killed a goat. Instead of paying my bail, my owner chose to sign me over to the shelter. I was hungry. Isn’t there a legitimate Meals on Hooves program?
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: My foster mom can’t understand why my former humans abandoned me. After all, is it my fault I escaped? Perhaps had I been neutered, I might not have escaped. Perhaps had goats not lived down the road, I might not have escaped. Perhaps if I were not a Siberian Husky, I might not have escaped. Really, my foster mom doesn’t understand. She says I must have been left outside and tried to get inside because all I want to do is curl up next to my humans. I want to play with them, be with them, let them pet me, give them kisses. The only time I even want to be outside is when that is where my humans are. My foster mom says I’m just about the sweetest dog in the world. If you are lucky enough to become my humans, there is no way you will ever feel unloved.

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
48 pounds (as of 4/20/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. I have had only positive interactions with children in my foster home (ages 0-3), but I am a young, energetic Siberian. So I will run laps over, under, and around young ones.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was informed my history is that I am not good with cats. Pet Harbor tested me for cat-friendliness, and I failed the test. Therefore, Pet Harbor will not place me in a home where cats live.
Experience with Dogs:
Jamey, also available for adoption from Pet Harbor Rescue, is my sister. Since coming to Pet Harbor, all of my interactions with the dogs I have met have been positive. All the dogs I have met are my size and larger.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Brian L. Jones.
History:
My sister Jamey and I were running at large. We ended up in a county animal shelter. This was not the first time. Our “owners” were notified and chose not to pay our bail this time. From there, we came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. Born to Run!
  2. With my sister Jamey, there are cuddles all around!

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Am I not the most beautiful Siberian you have ever seen? Well, I think I am! I am sweet and quiet. I love to love and to be loved, I am kind and polite, but I am also a Siberian Husky pup. So that means I have tons of energy and get into pretty much anything and everything. The good news is I am not a drama queen, like my sister Jamey is. You, therefore, should not pay attention to anything she has to say. Jamey and I do not have to share a home. My new family will need to understand I am all puppy, meaning I have need for training, I am not calm, I am as cute as I can be, I will wear you out, and you won’t know whether to laugh or cry at my antics. So if you are ready for a Siberian puppy and ALL that entails, perhaps you are ready for me!

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Am I not the most beautiful Siberian you have ever seen? Do not pay attention to my sister Bri. She thinks she is the prettiest, but the truth is I am. I know she calls me a drama queen, too. I prefer to say that I do everything with gusto. I am the utmost. If you have a kiss for me and you are tall, well, I will just jump up to get it. If there is something I want, I will get it. I also will join conversations to let you know what I have to say. See? Gusto. I have tons of love in me and really enjoy cuddles and kisses, but I also am a Siberian Husky pup. So that means I have tons of energy and get into pretty much anything and everything.
