Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Lisa Kearney-Griffin.
History:
I spent the first 3 years of my life living at the end of a heavy rope chain. A lady tried to help me, but she had no funds to care for me. Luckily for me, she knew an Alaskan Malamute rescuer. That rescuer saved my life and called Pet Harbor. Then I got adopted. I was in my new home 4 years. I thought I had found my forever home and family. Unfortunately, they had a baby and decided they didn’t want me anymore. So here I am: homeless again.
Movies:
  1. With Macie, I co-star in Black & White Dogs Can Jump.
  2. People! People! I Love People!
  3. I have a bit part in More People.
  4. I’m very photogenic. See my Beauty.

More About Me: My 2018 bio: Pretty much the same as my 2014 bio except I have a bit less energy now, which is a good thing! Unfortunately, partly, that is because I have gained too much weight. So hopefully my new family will help me find my lost figure.

My 2014 bio: Most dogs who share my history aren’t like me. I am extremely happy, sweet, loving, and friendly. I submit to bossy dogs unless they get too bossy and gang up on me. Then I find my chutzpah. I adore children. Well, heck, I adore all people. I give gentle kisses and take food gently. And you can take whatever you want from me. Don’t I sound like the perfect dog? I’m so different from other chained dogs. Maybe it’s because my chain was a heavy rope. And can you believe I never even tried to chew my way off the rope. I do have some pretty badly fly-bitten ears, but they’re healing. Now that I’m in foster care, I spent all my time playing with other dogs. I adore them. Of course, when people walk in the room, I forget about the dogs. People are the cat’s meow. And when toys are around, I also forget about the dogs. Toys rank right up there, too. And, of course, if you have treats, they’re all that and a bag of chips for me. I am extremely food-motivated. One thing you will notice about my happiness in these videos is I NEVER stop wagging. People could learn the lessons of gratitude from me. I do believe counters are made for walking and feasts can be made from garbage pails. I’m gentle and not one to barrel through others. So I’m a great dog for even the smallest of children. And I’m small built compared to big brutes. So your children will pick me anyway! Oh, one more thing. I never stop smiling.

More About Me: Pink Panther. That’s what my foster mom calls me. She says it’s because I’m so pretty. My mission in life is to love. My occupation is as a kiss gardener. If I can’t reach your face to plant my kisses, I will stand on my hind legs and rest my paws on your arm to be sure I can reach you. If you are seated and ignore me so that I can’t do my planting, I will sort of roll into you so you can’t ignore me. I take my job seriously. Kissing you is my paycheck. I enjoy it as much as you do! When I’m not kissing, I am playing. My BFFs, other Siberian Huskies, and I are a three- to four-ring circus. Did you know Pink Panther is a circus clown? So if you are looking for a beautiful gal who loves gardening (planting kisses), you found her!

More About Me: With one notable exception, I find everything cause for excitement! Yes, I am quite a happy and affectionate gal. What is that exception, you ask? Let me ask you this: Are you a morning person? My exception is I am NOT a morning person. I’ll eat some of my breakfast, but then I think it’s time to go back to sleep. After all, don’t all beauty queens (such as me) need adequate beauty rest? There are a few other things I NEED as well. I NEED playtime with dogs. You don’t have to have another dog to adopt me, but that means we need to visit dog parks because, as I said, I need that playtime with dogs. I also NEED love and attention from people. Yep, you heard that right. It’s not a matter of “want.” It’s a matter of “need.” So you have learned I need my beauty sleep, recess with other canines, and human love & attention. As long as we’ve got those things in place, the rest is minor. My den (crate) time is great. Unlike some boisterous Siberians, I’m calm & content there. I don’t even mind if fireworks blast off while I’m resting in my den. Though I’m working on my leash skills, I totally enjoy outings. In fact, every open door is an invitation for an outing! Isn’t that true? I’ve had some training at some point in my short life & even know some tricks. It’s pretty easy to train me because I am treat-motivated. You may also have noticed in all of my pictures, I am lying down. It’s because when I’m moving, I’m a blur! Before I go, I’ll let you in on one last little secret. I have this thing about stuffed animals. I lick them until they’re soggy. Don’t tell anyone it was me. I’ll plead the Fifth.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
60 pounds (as of 5/3/18)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children ages 1-4. New people & noises scare me but not for long. Within a couple of minutes, I was kissing the children. A rowdy household, however, is not for me. Bookworm children & I would get along famously!
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 5/6/18, Pet Harbor tested me for cat-friendliness. They say I failed. I say I passed. I guess it depends on which side you are rooting! The bottom line is I cannot live with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests with both male & female dogs similar to my size. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs around my size. I have mostly ignored them, no negatives. There are 2 other dogs in my foster home, and we get along great!

More About Me: All I really want is to be loved and feel safe. I am super sweet, with a bit of shyness. I warm up quickly, but I will revert if there are loud noises, such as thunderstorms, or changes happen too quickly. As you can see in the photos, my tail likes to live under me. I’m so afraid someone is going to hurt me. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know what happened to me in my past to make me this way? Yes, my tail does come out from under me. The more time you spend with me, the more I trust you, at least until the next time I am frightened. I’m the type of dog who makes your heart skip a beat. My success is your reward. I give the softest kisses, and I love to kiss. All you need to bring to the table is a bit of patience and understanding. I’m not the type of dog you can put in the backyard and expect me to stay there. Other dogs are okay, but I don’t have to live with other dogs. Children are great, the quieter the better. No kitties for my home, though. I’m just looking for a family who wants a handsome boy who gives soft kisses and rides really well in the car to show me love and understanding and let me be their reward.
