Dream Home Minimum Requirements: MY 2018 BIO: Sugar. Think sugar. If you go sugar-free, then think sweetener. That is all you need to describe me, just one word. When I first came to Pet Harbor, I was a little confused because I had been uprooted from my family I loved, but they took such wonderful care of me I have to miss them, especially the two children, whom I adored. If you adopt me, you will benefit from the care they gave me. They named me Chiqui. Pet Harbor originally named me after a 9/11 victim, hence why my bio says Leah. Even though the toddler in my foster home insists I am “not a chicken,” my name is Chiqui. Would you believe that I know commands in both English AND Spanish?! It’s like I’ve been to charm school. I’m well-mannered. My favorite thing to do is follow babies and toddlers around. Truth be told, I’m really waiting for them to drop food. When they wake up and start their days, I wake up and start my day. When they play, I lie quietly by them. When they walk outside, I try to follow them. When they leave, I look for them. I’m the type of dog who would love nothing more than to wait for a school bus to bring my babies back. When they go to sleep, I sleep right next to them on the bed or on the floor, wherever I am allowed. I am the quietest Siberian Husky you will ever meet. Seriously, I am a lady with all the wonderful attributes that entails. My second favorite thing to do is play in the water! Think of a retriever and that’s me: big grin, playful splashes, deep-end swimming.. just without the retrieving part. During the summer, I am perfectly content taking a dip in the kiddie pool, you guessed it, with the kiddies. And don’t expect to leave a bathtub filling with water unattended and not have me sneak in for a little fun. Yep, I’m adorable. Lest you think I have no faults, want to hear about my prey drive or how I will dig out of a yard to be closer to my people? See, just when you thought I was really not a Siberian Husky, I proved you wrong! Truthfully, I’m the most plug-and-play Siberian you will ever meet. The children in my foster home adore me. Those two sentences sum me up entirely!
MY 2010 BIO: If you would be so kind as to allow me to say it, please? What is it, you ask? Why, that I am the cutest dog in the world. Don’t you agree? I am a lady. I am dainty and gentle and give gentle kisses and curtsy. Okay. Maybe I exaggerate just a bit, too. I also am all puppy and will run and jump and play, play, play like all normal high-energy Siberian Husky puppies. Ready for all that entails?Read More

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: As noted above, I love to play (and play and play). There are no sad minutes with me. I’m happy all the time. My smile is never-ending. You know the person who walks in a room and just brightens everyone’s day? That’s a perfect description of me. I turn every frown upside down. Life is too short to be serious. Wanna laugh with me through this journey? Every Siberian should have a job. Whatever mine turns out to be, we know for sure it will be full of happiness. Until then, I will be content being a social butterfly.Read More

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Wanna hear a secret? I can run on a treadmill! Yep. Try taking me to the gym. Ha! And would you believe that I know commands in both English AND Spanish?! Yep. Now, whether I listen and obey is a whole other matter. I am a Siberian Husky, after all. Speaking of my breed, did you know Siberian Huskies are in the Working Dog class? Therefore, I have a job. And should my contract end, I have highly marketable skills. Let’s start with my degree as a cuddler extraordinaire with a minor in bedwarming if you let me sleep with you! Truth be told, though, I’m really vying for a top position with Caterpillar as an excavator. Next to cuddling, I excavate the best. I come with references. There are many other qualifications I possess, but I won’t bore you with the entire listing. Suffice it to say I earn my keep. Oh, wait. A few more things I should probably reveal. I’m a Siberian Husky who wants to be a Labrador Retriever, I fetch AND retrieve! See? Marketable skills. I also enjoy playing with toys and counter surfing. You would never guess my age if you didn’t already know what it was, would you? My family took wonderful care of me. If you adopt me, you will benefit from the care they gave me. They named me Matias (Matty for short). So how about it? Need a gym partner or a bedwarmer?Read More

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: My favorite thing in the world is tummy scratches. I love them!! Oh, I could go belly up all day and all night if you would scratch my tummy. Putty. Putty in your hands. If I think you are going to give me belly rubs, my body slinks down as if I am boneless. Lest you think I am taking advantage of you, let me tell you I give as much as I get. I give all the soft kisses you could possibly want in exchange for belly scratches. On another note, I am truly a Siberian and all the stubbornness that entails. If I decide I don’t want to go somewhere, then I will put on the brakes and become dead weight, all the while dishing out soft kisses. You will find it difficult to be angry at me. That is for sure. When I first came to Pet Harbor, I had a touch of shyness, just enough to be endearing, but that shyness is pretty much nonexistent now unless I think I’m in trouble.Read More

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: I’m as much fun as a barrel of monkeys. One Siberian is better than monkeys in a barrel any day! Watch your pinky because I will wrap around it pretty quickly. I’ll get into mischief and show you my baby blue and brown eyes and pearly whites and you will forget whatever its as I did. Girls just wanna have fun. I will play with other dogs to my heart’s content. And I have a job. I work hard at my job. I am a protector. I will protect my home, guarding the house against stuffed animals and tapestry pillows that look like Siberian Husky heads. True story. Oh, did I mention that while I’m giving you kisses, I’m also plotting my next caper? I’m no dummy! There is a method to my madness. Told you I’m good at my job. Maybe it’s time to ask for a raise. A few more treats should be in order! It would be nice if Pearl and I could be adopted together, but it is not a requirement.Read More
