What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Red & white, blue eyes
46 pounds (as of 10/18/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with children of all ages. All interactions have been positive ones.
Experience with Cats:
My history with cats is unknown. When I first got to Pet Harbor, they did an initial test for my cat-friendliness. At that time, I showed no real interest in cats. On 11/9, Pet Harbor did a more formal test. I showed little interest in the cats. Kitty O’Grady smacked me. O’G is not a fan of dogs. I did not react to his smack. But then a cat darted out at high speed and ran under me. I nipped the top of his head. Until that point, I was fine with them. So I should be okay to live with cats, but Pet Harbor would recommend proceeding with caution (with ANY Siberian and a cat).
Experience with Dogs:
I lived with at least two male dogs in my prior home. I was temperament tested with two male dogs. The interactions were positive. When one of the other dogs got growly with me, I walked away from him. At Pet Harbor, I have interacted with several Siberian Husky-sized dogs. The only one I bully is the older male who thinks he’s bad when he isn’t. It is, after all, my job to knock him down a peg.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Alfred R. Maler.
For the crime of running at large, along with two other male dogs, I was sentenced to time in the slammer. I was sprung and came to Pet Harbor.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: True to my breed, I am a Working Dog. My job may not pay much, but it’s loads of fun. Bonus: Jobs keep Siberians out of trouble! I’m a weaver. Sitting by people is great. Then I crawl under their legs, under benches, in/out. See? A job. So you know what? If you ever thought about having an agility dog (entering a dog into agility trials), I’m the perfect candidate. I can go up and down and weave in and out with ease. We would have loads of fun! My foster mom calls me Alf. I don’t think I look like Alf. Do you? Well, I can’t help it he has a TV show. Maybe you can adopt me and we can do an agility trial so fantastically that we get invited to do a TV show, too! How’s about that!
