Neutered male Siberian Husky
AKC Information:
AKC #WS35767906
PARENTS:
   – Sire: Lava Snowbound Siberian (AKC #WS27942804)
   – Dam: CR Phantom Streak Kya (AKC #WS20276501)
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
62 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 did snatch a trespassing gosling, and I do chase squirrels.
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.
Energy Level:
Medium
Owner Aptitude Level:
Novice
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.
