What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Black & white woolly, blue eyes
54 pounds (as of 9/14/17)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told at my former home, where I lived since I was a puppy, I lived with 3 children currently ages 9 through 15. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with children ages 1 to 4 and have displayed only positive interactions (kisses) to them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told at my former home, where I lived since I was a puppy, there were no other pets. On 10/13/17, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. A cat hissed & swatted at me. I did not react. Another cat ran towards me. I actually moved away. So at least initial testing has shown I should be able to live with kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told at my former home, where I lived since I was a puppy, there were no other pets. However, it was reported I went to doggie daycare and engaged in two fights there. No further information was disclosed except that I continued to attend the daycare. At the shelter, there were no negative incidents in my dog-dog interaction testing. Since I have been at Pet Harbor, there have been no incidents with other dogs. I have not engaged in play with other dogs, but I have allowed other dogs to sniff me without reacting. All of the dogs in my foster home are around my size.
Prior owner reported my energy level as high. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have not exhibited high energy level, but I seem to be a bit unsure why I have become homeless.
Owner Aptitude Level:
My former humans relinquished me to a Virginia county animal shelter. Although I belonged to them since I left my breeder as a pup, they decided I have too much energy for them to care for me. My energy level didn’t change. So whatever the real reasoning was, I became homeless and sad. I then was transferred to Pet Harbor Rescue, where I wait for a family who will love me forever, not just when it is convenient. I was adopted, but I was returned one week later because our human could not handle the behavior as the dog who was in the home when I got there and I fought. Since coming back to foster care, I have not engaged in any fighting whatsoever.
Dream Home Minimum Requirements: I’m a cheap date. Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend and food might be the way to a man’s heart, but my best friend and the way to my heart is tennis balls. I won’t sit for treats, but I will for a tennis ball! A happy girl, I really love people. I did not minor in humanology, though. I actually have a double major: tennisology and humanology. You can’t have one without the other. In the summertime, though, I have another best friend: playing with water sprinklers. So if you are ready to give me a permanent home, will allow me to hug and kiss you, and have a tennis ball or two, I’m ready. Let’s go home!
