What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, bi-eyed (one blue eye, one brown eye)
Weight:
55 pounds (as of 4/18/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with children ages 0-3 so far and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was informed my history is that I am cat-friendly. Pet Harbor cat-tested me on 5/5/17. I met three cats and just looked at them. I showed no interest, positive or negative, and was easily distracted.
Experience with Dogs:
My history with dogs is unknown. I was tested with a smaller dog and just wanted to play. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs around my size and have had no issues with any of them.
Energy Level:
Medium
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Anthony M. Starita.
History:
Because of my escape abilities, I was a repeat offender at an animal shelter. I have, unfortunately, been passed from home to home for the very same reason. This time no one claimed me. It is time for me to have my forever home.
Movies:
  1. See? I told you I have a lot to say.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: First and foremost, I have a lot to say. Just when you think I’m as quiet as a churchmouse, you’ll hear my melodious voice come out of what seems like nowhere. Secondly, don’t expect me to be serious. I’m all about fun and play. Thirdly, I give tiny, gentle kisses. Yeah, I’m super sweet, but I might quickly jump into play because I can’t possibly let you think I am at all mushy. I am not a dog you can leave in the backyard or in a 4′ fence, but if you are looking for some fun, some pep in your step, I’m the gal for you. Plus, I can live with children, cats, dogs, whoever. Does it get better than this?

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
55 pounds (as of 6/10/17)
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:
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:
My history is I lived with Jamey, also available for adoption from Pet Harbor Rescue, who 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!
  3. See me play with the pack!
  4. Belly rubs are utter bliss!

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. But, I must say that Jamey and I are a bonded pair, and we would be so happy to go to our forever home together. It is, however, not a requirement. It’s more important that we get a home or homes than that we share a home. I am as cute as I can be. You won’t know whether to laugh or cry at my antics, but I am so loving I can easily get you to focus on that, instead of whatever I got into today!

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. In fact, the toddler in my foster home calls me “my puppy.” Like Goldilocks, he thinks I am just right, not too boisterous, not standoffish.
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:
My history is I lived with Bri, already adopted, who is my sister. Since coming to Pet Harbor, all of my interactions with the dogs I have met have been positive. I have met dogs of all sizes.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience is a plus!
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for James Nelson.
History:
My sister Bri 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. Workout!
  2. With my sister Bri, there are cuddles all around!
  3. Jamey v. a Teddy Bear
  4. See me play with the pack!
  5. Given the choice to train or play, I choose play

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Am I not the most beautiful Siberian you have ever seen? My sister Bri thinks she is the prettiest, but the truth is I am. Even though I know Bri 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, usually by giving easy kisses and batting my eyelashes. I also will join conversations to let you know what I have to say. See? Gusto. Nothing but love for all my people, young and old, is what I bring to the table. 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 will get into pretty much anything and everything. A good training class would be great! I am as cute as I can be. In my foster home, the toddler is in love with me, and I am gentle with him. I’m never unhappy. Even if you fuss at me, I will wag my tail and turn up my charm. You won’t know whether to laugh or cry at my antics. For example, my favorite thing to do is play with ice cubes and empty water bottles. Oh, the excitement!

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Grey & white, blue eyes
Weight:
68 pounds (as of 4/8/17)
Experience with Children:
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 neither cat-test me nor 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, wagging my tail the whole time, 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 from a Craigslist ad 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 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? I’m a loving and quite happy boy who likes to wag a lot. There is no such thing as being depressed around me. I am the eternal happimist (happy optimist). The love you show me, I will return several times over. And am I not the most handsome fellow you have ever seen?

History:
For the crime of being homeless, I was sentenced to time in an animal shelter. After serving my time, I came to Pet Harbor.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: 2017 is here! Need a workout buddy? Resistance training? Strength exercises? Running partner? Motivator? My paw is raised. Pick me! Let’s go through 2017 right–together! I love, love, love people, and I am so strong and so enthusiastic that you cannot and will not have a dull moment around me ever. I love dogs just as much as people. For comic relief, watch me play with dogs. If they lie on the floor, I like to leap over them back & forth until they get up to play with me. See? I told you I’m a great motivator! So what are you waiting for? Let’s get moving!
