Dream Home Minimum Requirements: On 12/12, my heartworm treatment was completed and now I can be adopted. I have to have leash walks only for two weeks, no running, but after that, I’ll be free as a bird. And that’s good because I love to run. After all, I am a masked crusader. Masked crusaders need to run to chase criminals, right? Running masked crusaders are so beautiful… or at least THIS masked crusader is beautiful, running or otherwise. Other dogs are great. Well, I haven’t met any smaller than a bread basket, but those I have met are my play buds. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I had a home before Christmas, one with children and dogs or no children or dogs? I’m flexible! Maybe my home will help me in my masked crusade! Besides my distinctive mask, I am also a very sweet and loving dog. Kinda funny I am a masked crusader whose birthday is on Halloween, isn’t it? I would love to go trick-or-treating with my new family!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Black & white, blue eyes
45 pounds (as of 11/13/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with children ages 0 to 4 and all interactions with them have been positive. I love kissing them and being as close to them as possible.
Experience with Cats:
My history with cats is unknown. Pet Harbor has performed tests for cat-friendliness. Two short initial tests produced inconclusive results. I didn’t show aggression in either of them, but I did stiffen and have a focused stare. On 12/4, I was fully cat-tested. A nonmoving cat hissed at me. I ignored the cat before the hiss. I looked at him when he hissed but quickly moved my glance and body away from him. Then another cat ran. I took chase. Of course, I was not allowed near enough to see if I would bite. I was fixated on the running kitty. When the kitty went out of my sight (I was leashed the whole time.), I stood there barking incessantly. Pet Harbor isn’t convinced kitties would be safe living with me. On 12/11, I saw a cat about 10’ away. The kitty did not move. I stared and barked at the kitty. I wasn’t allowed close enough to harm, but I sure tried to get there.
Experience with Dogs:
My history with dogs is unknown. When a dog-dog test was performed at the shelter with another female dog, I wagged and played. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with multiple dogs around my size. My interactions have been without incident and very playful.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Bernard Mascarenhas.
Running at large, I landed in an animal shelter. The shelter found out I had a microchip and located my humans. They said they gave me away a year ago. Nobody else came forward. So I came to Pet Harbor.
