What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
52 pounds (as of 10/19/18)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages. I play with them & kiss them. I am a rambunctious puppy. So I will knock down little children, but after I knock them down, I shower them with kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 11/4/18, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. The result is the cats were more afraid of me & my energy level than I was of them. I was more interested in their canned cat food than them. On 11/23/18, Pet Harbor repeated testing. The cat smacked me and then ran. I did not react. My third cat test was similar, but then I went to a home with two kitties and after a few days, I became too focused on one of the kitties, to the point where the kitty’s humans became afraid. So Pet Harbor has decided in order to keep everyone safe, they will place me in a home without kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests with female & male dogs. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met male & female dogs. I am a puppy, and have played with them all. Zemis was my BFF, and we loved to play a lot! He got adopted. So now I play with several dogs at once.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Joseph Jenkins, Jr.
History:
My former owners bought me from an Amish breeder. Nine months later, they put me in an animal shelter, indicating they do not have the “time or resources needed to care for” me. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 11/3/18 – Scavenger
  2. 9/16/18 – A little kindergarten rough-housing!
  3. 9/16/18 – Running and exploring the yard.

More About Me: I am a puppy, all puppy, with all that entails. Puppies and children are not born knowing how to behave. They must be taught. Though we’re lots of fun, we also need training. I’m uber friendly and playful, ready to be putty in your hands. If you know Siberians, you know me. All those traits that describe a Siberian describe me. Siberians are friendly and loving. Yep, that’s me. I’m a total sweetheart. Happy as can be. Yep, that’s me. Sing the song of my people? Yep, I do. I’m not quiet. Well, I’m not quiet when my human(s) leave me alone. I have quite a lot to say in protest. If you know & love Siberians, you will know that song is melodious & enjoy it, but if you live in an apartment or in close quarters, your neighbors may not. Some Siberians are good apartment dogs. I’m not one of them. I’m much happier when my people are home where they can pet me or fix me food or let me kiss them. Fun-loving & full of puppy mischief. Yep. That’s me! So the bottom line is if you are a Siberian person, I’m the perfect dog for you!

Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages. All of my interactions with them have been positive. I sleep with children in my foster home. The 5-year-old walks me by my collar & has taken food from me, both without incident.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 9/14/18, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. I showed no interest in the cats, but I was focused on removing myself from the environment. So the test results are inconclusive. On 10/18/18, Pet Harbor repeated the cat-friendliness test. I showed no interest in kitties. Pet Harbor is comfortable placing me in a home with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog test with a female dog. I have interacted with dogs my size of both genders since coming to Pet Harbor. I can take them or leave them. I have had no negative interactions with them, but I haven’t played with them either.

More About Me: All you need to know is I’m about the sweetest dog who ever lived. I’m great with toddlers. I don’t run through or over them. I take treats from them quietly & easily. I have the cutest, most feminine play bow in the world. I have a soft woo that is rarely heard. I have an adorable smile. I’m well-behaved. I’m not a kissy Siberian, but I will push into you to be petted if you are so inclined to pet me. I don’t even mind going to the veterinarian, getting shots, or being brushed. I am perfection. Really, I am. I’m healthy, too. I’m one of those no-issue dogs who makes people scratch their heads trying to figure out how I got homeless & was not reclaimed. Oh, well. Hopefully my next people will be my last people & will love me the way I deserve to be loved. There are two things I do not like. One is hardwood floors, the other having my picture taken. Other than that, I’m a doll baby.
