July 17, I was neutered. So I am now ready to find a home & family!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Grey & white, brown eyes
Weight:
32 pounds (as of 7/11/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages and have showered them with love & kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 7/14/19, Pet Harbor did an evaluation and exposed me to a cat. I did not show aggression towards the cat. In fact, I played with the kitty. Siberian Huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. While our evaluation was favorable, it may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told I previously lived with multiple dogs. I am a puppy and constantly play with other dogs.
Energy Level:

Owner Aptitude Level:

Named for 9/11 Victim:

History:

  2. 6/29/19 – Why yes, I am a lap-dog!

More About Me: Two things you need to know about me. 1) Raggedy Ann. I’m like a doll you want to carry around with you everywhere. So cute, so little, so cuddly you just can’t help yourself. Charmin. You know, the times that make me roll my eyes and groan, “Not again!” 2) Water. Oh, I am a water pup. So if you have a second home at the lake, I’m in! Because of my prior history, I have a smidgen of shyness, but it really is just a smidgen. Enough water play, and I won’t even have a smidgen!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
54 pounds (as of 4/12/19)
Experience with Children:
The only recent experience with children is with a 10yo neighbor. Prior history was with children of ages 3-8. All positive interactions. In my excitement, small children would get knocked down. My curiosity gets to me when an adult is holding a child. So I have to jump up to see the little one to be close enough to sniff and give kisses.
Experience with Cats:
My history with cats is nonexistent. Because my parents knew about my breed’s prey drive, they kept me as far away from any cats as they could. I do chase squirrels. On 8/17/19, Pet Harbor evaluated me for cat-friendliness. The answer is I see them as breakfast, lunch, and snack. Dinner should be four-course, not feline-course. Cats cannot live with me. Don’t worry. No kitty was harmed during this evaluation.
Experience with Dogs:
My experience with other dogs is I just want to play! While Pet Harbor’s observations have been favorable, they may not translate to all dogs under all circumstances.
Energy Level:
Medium-High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
History:
I had a wonderful home with a mom, dad, and a Siberian “brother” named Dante (Pet Harbor’s Saint), also available for adoption. Then my dad suddenly was taken from us. He died in a car crash. My mom loves us, but it’s a struggle for her to survive herself, much less take care of us.

More About Me: Never having met a stranger, I am everyone’s friend. My name is Isis because the Egyptian goddess Isis loved everybody, protected children, healed the sick, and was the goddess of life & magic. Well, I don’t know about magic, but the rest of that fits me. I love everybody. Everybody is my best friend. I am the goddess of life, and I will heal what ails you. And talk. Yes, I talk. I am a chatterbox, they say. I will sometimes talk your ear off with what I have to say. Once you give me attention, I will promptly roll over for belly rubs. I have also learned that a crossed leg means an open foot for pets. I know commands for sit & down by hand gesture and talk, wait, and dance. True to my breed, though, if there’s an open door, I’m gone on the first thing smokin’. If there is no door open, I’ll try to push one open! Since I don’t play Monopoly and I sometimes need a “Get Out of Jail Free!” card, I will lay my head on your leg as an attempt to get said card. The way to my heart is through popcorn and smoothies, and my favorite vegetable is summer squash.

Experience with Dogs:
I have lived with Isis, also available for adoption, most of my life. We are BFFs, but we do not have to live together. As for me with dogs other than Isis, I can take them or leave them initially. After I sniff out who they are, we can play, but I am partial to that introduction period.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Fitzroy St. Rose.
History:
I was purchased as a pup by a young person who didn’t do his homework on the breed. Siberian Huskies are not the dogs for everyone. Then I came to Pet Harbor. Then I got adopted. I had a wonderful home since 2011 with a mom, dad, and a Siberian “sister” named Isis, also available for adoption. Then my dad suddenly was taken from us. He died in a car crash. My mom loves us, but it’s a struggle for her to survive herself, much less take care of us. So we became homeless. I returned to Pet Harbor, and Isis joined the Pet Harbor program.

More About Me:

  • My bio from 2011: For a one-year-old Siberian, I’m a really good boy. Don’t get me wrong. I do have energy & will run & play & will pick up things in my mouth that I shouldn’t, but some less mannered Siberians will have outside energy inside. I don’t. I am very good. I like to say I am the best! When you first meet me, I will have a touch of uncertainty, nervousness, but that will quickly dissipate, especially if you have some juicy treats for me. I then will shower you with the most gentle of kisses! And I love toys, especially the soft kind. I love going to dog parks & LOVE other Siberian Huskies! I do guard possessions (toys, bones) against them, esp. male dogs. Isn’t that what all good men do? I also love to get tangled in wires and curl up under your legs. My foster dad thinks I’m entertainment plus. He gets a big kick out of how when I want to be petted, I stand next to him and flare my nose. If you need some laughter, I’m ready for your house!
  • My bio from 2019: My claim to fame is I have the pout perfected, even including a lower lip poking out. The way to my heart is through popcorn and smoothies, and my favorite vegetable is snap peas. I may seem a tad shy at first, but I quickly warm up. I enjoy belly rubs from the side. I usually won’t roll over on my back. That’s not dignified enough for me. If there’s an open door, I may run at first just to prove I am a Siberian, but once I realize you aren’t with me, I lose interest. I know the commands sit & down by hand gestures and talk, wait, and up. And did I tell you about my report cards? My report cards when I am boarded all come back with high marks. Also, I should tell you Saint is my name to honor a 9/11 victim, but I have been called Dante since 2011. Oh, and if you don’t like brushing dogs, we’re in business because I hate that stuff, too.

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve met children of all ages. I adore the children I live with in my foster home, and they adore me.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 6/6/19, Pet Harbor evaluated me for cat-friendliness. When the first cat approached me, I backed away.  When the second cat approached me, I ignored kitty.  When that cat walked away, I followed.  There was no negative interaction. On 8/17/19, Pet Harbor reevaluated me for cat-friendliness. I had the exact same reaction as the first time. Siberian Huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. While our evaluations were favorable, it may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with other dogs. I did well in my dog-dog introduction. I have interacted with the dogs in my foster home in only a positive fashion. While our observations have been favorable, they may not translate to all dogs under all circumstances.

History:
Running at large, I landed myself in an animal shelter. After serving my time and not being redeemed, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.

More About Me: Badass. I’m a puppy, all puppy, which means innocence, mischievousness, playfulness, and bouncy love. I’m still a badass, though. Full of joy and happiness, I believe I’m the Queen of the World. If there’s mischief going on, I’m the leader. If there’s love or war, my nose is in it. No fear. But I will charm the pants right off ya because I might be a badass, but I’m the sweetest, most full-of-love badass you’ve ever met. Ready? Let’s find some trouble. You know you can’t say no, and if you do, I’ve got plenty of kisses to change your mind.

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:

Weight:
45 pounds (as of 5/2/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages and have let them pet me, tell me commands, and give me treats. I’ve even rolled over so they could scratch my belly.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 7/14/19, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. I immediately reacted, not in a good way, to the kitty. My home needs to be cat-free. (Note: No kitty was harmed in this test, and I wasn’t either!)
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with other dogs. When I was tested with another dog during my temperament test, I mostly exhibited play mode. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with dogs around my size without incident, but I prefer the company of humans. I do mingle with the other dogs and I do play sometimes, but most of my time is spent trying to schmoozle humans.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Stephen Louis Roach, Sr.
History:
Running at large, I was hungry. So I grabbed a couple of chickens. As a result, I landed myself in an animal shelter. After serving my time, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 6/9/19 – Pet me… pet me, please!
  2. 6/9/19 – Will work for treats!
  3. 6/9/19 – Is that food for me?!
  4. 6/9/19 – Can I meet the baby?

More About Me: Did you see my sign that says, “We Work for Treats”? How about the one that says, “Will Do ANYTHING for Some Attention”? I love people to the nth degree. I will pirouette, obey all commands, smile brightly, sweep the floor with my tail, get as close as I can get, make you laugh, whatever it takes to get some attention, any attention, from humans. Okay. Truth be told, I seek that same attention from chickens, albeit with a different outcome. I truly am the perfect dog for a family. I’m what you would call plug & play. All I want is people. That’s it. To me, being surrounded by people of all ages makes life divine. The only thing you need to know other than that is I am fluffy. I’m what in the Siberian Husky world is known as a woolly. So if you like brushing dogs, well, we’re a match made in Dog Heaven!
