What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Black & white, blue eyes
47 pounds (as of 2/1/18)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children ages newborn to 15. I have had all positive interactions with them. I sniffed and then mostly ignored the newborn.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. I do have a prey drive because, along with my brother, Brue, also available for adoption, I participated in eliminating the world of a pesky goat. On 2/7/18, Pet Harbor performed a cat test. The result is, in a word, FAIL. I cannot share my home with kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
I lived with Brue, my brother, also available for adoption. When Pet Harbor performed the first dog-dog test with another male dog, I expressed dominance behaviors. During the second dog-dog test, the interaction was issue-free. I just had my neuter surgery. Sometimes after neuter, dog-dog behaviors change. Now that I am in a foster home, Pet Harbor doesn’t understand how I ever showed dominance. I am a mush. I have been fine with other dogs in my foster home, including a 10# one. I did get in some fights with Brue over toys. He started them, but I didn’t run away. I guarded those toys like they were precious metals. With the other dogs in my foster home, there are no issues with toys. I even let my foster siblings steal my toys.

Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Fernando Jiminez-Molina.
Pet Harbor was told Brue and I were put into a shelter because our owners decided they were unable to care for us. From there, we came to Pet Harbor.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Secret time! My smile is my claim to fame. I approach everybody with my pearly whites and a twinkle in my eye. Who could resist? Shhh. Don’t tell anyone! Let me spring it on the unsuspecting so before they know it, I can wrap them around my paws. I’m super sweet & love to give easy kisses. I cry over squeaky toys. I have to worry about them, after all, and protect them from harm. I have a lot to learn, but I am a willing student & my foster family has taught me quite a bit, such as climbing stairs. Are you my new teacher? I hope so because it’s making me smile!
