What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Black & white, blue eyes
52 pounds (as of 2/10/18)
Experience with Children:
I lived with small children for the past several years, and I am living with small children in my foster home. I have had only positive interactions with them. In fact, I like to follow the toddler like Mary’s little lamb. I also like to curl up in the toddler’s bed, whether or not I am accompanied by a toddler. Wherever the children are, that is where I choose to be.
Experience with Cats:
True to my breed, I have a high prey drive for cats and small critters, like squirrels. I cannot live with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
I have lived with a male Siberian Husky all of my life. I have frequented dog parks. I share a foster home with male and female Siberian Huskies. I do let them know I am a typical dominant female Siberian Husky, meaning I will win. If that means I fight, I will fight without hesitation. This is only dogs. I ADORE ALL humans. Interestingly, though, I do pick my friends. I pick out a male dog and will flirt all I can. The next male dog, though, I might dislike with a vengeance. I guess it’s a roll of the dice or maybe I just choose by scent.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Leah E. Oliver.
I lost my first home when I was less than a year old. My human at that time loved me and took good care of me but then became homeless and felt he had to turn us (Broderick, adopted; and me) into a dog pound. Then Pet Harbor found me a wonderful home. That was my family for almost seven years. They loved me very much. Unfortunately, the pediatrician advised my family to give up the dogs. So I came back to Pet Harbor. I then got adopted, but I was not nice to the other dog in the house. So I came back to Pet Harbor.

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?
