What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Grey & white, blue eyes
Weight:
49 pounds (as of 4/17/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, so far, I have only briefly met one child, a 5yo child. I happily wagged my tail when he approached me. When more information is known, it will be posted here. I do mouth, which means I play using my mouth on you. Even though I don’t mean to hurt you, mouthing, especially on young and old skin, can really hurt. Training is needed! I also am a talkative Siberian. My noises may sound like growling to the inexperienced. So, though they have nothing to fear, children may be afraid.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. Pet Harbor has not yet performed a test for cat-friendliness. When more information is known, it will be posted here.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. In my shelter dog-dog test, I interacted with two male dogs with only positive results. In further dog-dog tests, I interacted with other dogs, my size and small dogs, in a positive fashion. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. When more information is learned, it will be posted here.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
53 pounds (as of 5/3/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. When more information is known, it will be posted here. I do mouth, which means I play using my mouth on people. Even though I don’t mean to hurt, mouthing, especially on younger and older skin, can really hurt. Training is needed!
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats, but because I show too much interest in kitties, indicating I could potentially be a danger to them, Pet Harbor will not let me live with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. In my dog-dog tests, I was excited and attempted to entice play. My interactions with other dogs in my foster home have been great. I’m in my element with other dogs. They’re all my buddies, including smaller dogs. In fact, the best home for me will have another dog to be my playmate.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for FDNY's Lt. John F. Ginley.
History:
Because I ate a few things (like articles of clothing) I shouldn’t eat, I needed surgery to remove them from my innards. Because I needed surgery, my humans surrendered me. So I ended up in an animal shelter. From there, I was adopted to people who didn’t understand my breed. After 10 days, they returned me to the shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.

More About Me: A cheap date. No fancy French restaurant for me. I’ll eat your socks, underwear, dental floss, whatever you have lying around. Certainly it will be an expensive lesson for you after the date, but at least I will have tidied up your home! I’m all puppy. And just like all babies, that means everything in the mouth. So you need to be ready for all that puppyhood entails to adopt me! For example, one of Pet Harbor’s adoptees just today, got into an ink cartridge, yes, that means ink everywhere. He’s a year old. Imagine what he did at my age. I’m loads of fun, but my adopters must appreciate all that means. Training would be a great idea for me! Since I love playing with other dogs and they will keep me distracted so I don’t eat your unmentionables, I need a home with a canine playmate. So are you ready for laughter, fun, and the good & bad of toddlerhood?

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, brown eyes
Weight:
62 pounds (as of 5/2/19)
Experience with Children:
Because I was running at large, Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. However, since coming to Pet Harbor, I have shown I love all people. Children adore me. It’s mutual. They can hug me all day long. Taller people get hugs from me, standing on my hind legs.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 5/8/19, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. During the test, I showed no interest in the cats. A cat ran during the test. I ignored the kitty. When a kitty was standing next to me at the door at the top of the stairs, I looked at the kitty while wagging my tail, but I made no further movement.
Experience with Dogs:
I was running at large with a German Shepherd Dog. Other than that, nothing is known about my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with dogs around my size. I have had no negative interactions with them. When I first got to Pet Harbor, they decided I was a people’s dog, not a dog’s dog. Now that I have been here a few days, I have shown I am both. I want to spend time with people, but when I can’t, I am in the center of play with the other dogs.

Named for 9/11 Victim:

History:
For the crime of running at large, I found myself in a rural animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.

More About Me: Think of the sweetest thing you can. Think of the most obedient dog you can. Think of the most loving person in the world. Wrap all of that up in one package, and you’ve got Shira. I know commands, and I listen to them. I don’t have a favorite person. I make the rounds. Each person in the room gets to experience my love. I leave no person unturned. One mission. I have one mission. And that is to give all the love I can to everyone I can. When I’m not cuddling with someone, I enjoy playing with other dogs. Besides all of that, I’m a really good girl as well. I’m pretty much what you’d call a plug-and-play gal.
