Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several children, from age 1 all the way up. I play with them, and I give them easy, soft kisses. However, I do mouth. It isn’t a vicious thing, but it hurts. So until trained, tender skin could get hurt.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 12/22, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. I completely ignored the cats. On 1/7/18, I was tested again. I did show a bit more interest in cats but most ignored them. Please remember a cat-friendliness test is just a snapshot in time. To keep them safe, Siberians and cats should never be left unsupervised.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs, but I was tested with a male dog. I wagged my tail and then ignored the dog. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs and pretty much ignore them, no negative reactions.

Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
Running at large, I landed in an animal shelter. I served my time. No one claimed me. I then came to Pet Harbor. My breeder microchipped me, but the microchip company, unfortunately, won’t release the breeder info.
  1. 12/30/17 – Wait for it… hear me speak at the end!
  2. 12/30/17 – I’m easy-going even with other male dogs
  3. 1/7/18 – I’m usually polite with children
  4. 1/7/18 – As long as I am understood, I can live with cats and kids

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: First thing you will notice about me is it is difficult to photograph me. My foster mom took 250 pictures of me one day and had one useable one because I spent my time pushing into her to pet me, pet me, pet me. It’s difficult to photograph a dog while he’s pushing against you! My medium energy comes with the fact I could sit for hours being petted. My high energy comes with the fact that, true to my breed, I love to run. I’m polite and will sit handsomely for treats. I do know basic commands. My personality is gentle and soft, a true love bug, except when I’m eating something like a bone or you try to make me do something I’d prefer not doing. That’s when I mouth (put my mouth on your hand to stop you). So that’s why I have to go to a strong owner or someone with experience.
