True to my breed, I have a high prey drive for cats and small critters, like squirrels. I cannot live with cats.

I have lived with a female Siberian Husky for most of my life. I have frequented dog parks. I have had only positive interactions with all dogs I’ve met. There is a female Siberian in my foster home, and we have had all positive interactions.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Robert D. Mattson.
My family bought me as a puppy from a breeder in Pennsylvania. My family loved me very much. Unfortunately, the pediatrician advised my family to give up the dogs. So I came to Pet Harbor. My “sister,” Leah, also available for adoption, was returned to Pet Harbor.
  1. 6/10/17 – I’m just so well-mannered!
  2. 7/15/17 – Kids love me!

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?
