What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, one blue eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
Weight:
33 pounds (as of 6/13/19)
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 had all positive interactions.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 7/20/19, Pet Harbor did an evaluation and exposed me to a cat. I did not show aggression towards the cat. I did not react when kitty swatted me, but I am generally afraid. 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. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met other dogs around my size. I play with them. My foster brothers are Siberian Huskies, and we get along famously.
Energy Level:
Medium
Owner Aptitude Level:
Shy dog experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Faina Rapoport.
History:
Along with others, I was part of a court case. Custody of all of us was awarded to the jurisdiction of our residence. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 7/17/19 – Play With Me!
  2. 7/8/19 – With foster brothers Buckley (right) and Barney (formerly Pet Harbor’s Buckley & Spitz), I star (center) in Three-Dog Night!
  3. 7/8/19 – Soaking Up Lovin’!
  4. 7/17/19 – Siberians need a job. I am a referee.
  5. 7/17/19 – Smart lady I am. I always go to the highest perch to be above!
  6. 6/29/19 – Do I know you?

More About Me: Must. Have. Throne. I prefer the highest perch. Wherever I have to climb to get it, I’m in! Dining room tables make great sofas. When I first got to Pet Harbor, I was afraid. A week later, well, just check out my videos, and you’ll see. Having another dog around my size in my family would be wonderful! See me play with my foster brothers in the videos. Once I start dropping my fear, I will be in love with you and you will be in love with me. My goal then is to be with my human people & canine people. I have quite a bit to say, and I am playful as well. And, to boot, am I not a cutie patootie?

Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, brown eyes
Weight:
35 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. Pet Harbor did an evaluation and exposed me to a cat. I did not show aggression towards the cat. I was friendly with the kitty. No, I was not priming him! 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:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Michael Ragusa.
History:
Along with others, I was part of a court case. Custody of all of us was awarded to the jurisdiction of our residence. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 7/1/19 – Oh, it’s playtime!
  2. 7/1/19 – Let’s take it outside!
  3. 7/5/19 – Getting my fiber!

More About Me: Ants. Yes, ants. I have ants in my pants. Sitting still is certainly not in my repertoire. Who wants a statue husky? That would be beneath me! Causing trouble, on the other hand, is not beneath me! If it exists, it’s an invitation, right? I can get into it? Right? Furniture, countertops, shelves, etc., are not obstacles. These are things to explore and climb. Everyone knows that that’s where you find the best stuff to play with. And nothing will hold me. I can and do chew my way through everything. After all, I am a Siberian Husky puppy, and isn’t that what you expect from a Siberian Husky puppy? Besides, exercise is good. Everything needs exercised. No toy, leash, or shoe gets a reprieve from my “exercising” it! A typical day for me starts off by waking up for sunrise wrestling practice with my favorite Uncle Parker followed by nonstop cycles of eating, napping, and more playing. About my shyness/fear, with a bit of work (attention, love, training, continuing what my foster parents have started), I am going to be a fantastic dog. I am significantly more comfortable and at ease outside in the yard than in the house. For instance, outside, a set of steps doesn’t need a second thought. Inside, however, a staircase requires careful consideration and caution. Likewise, people in the yard are probably friendly, but inside the house, that same person might be dangerous and should not be immediately trusted. I am fairly vocal. The more comfortable I get, the more increasingly quick I am to bark or howl my little head off to let you know when I am unhappy or need more chewies. I take all of my cues from Uncle Parker (also available for adoption). So if you get him to do something you want him to do, I am usually quick to follow suit. The best home for me will have at least one other dog around my size or adopt Uncle Parker, too! One more thing – I am a foodie and haven’t met a treat yet that I don’t like. Luckily for me (teehee), Uncle Parker usually drops any treats he is offered. So I have learned to scoop in quickly and snag them for myself. Oh, one last thing. I like “dens.” I like to crawl into tight spaces to explore, hide, play, etc., but I can do without those things humans call crates. So if you are looking for a puppy who is animated, needs a bit of work, and will reward you in spades, I’m your gal!

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Philip L. Parker.
History:

  3. 7/5/19 – Don’t mind me, I’m just wandering

More About Me: My favorite thing to do is canoe. Water? Who said anything about water? I just need a canoe. All kidding aside, furniture, countertops, shelves, these are not obstacles. These are things to explore and climb up on. Everyone knows that that’s where you find the best stuff to play with. Okay. Seriously this time, all kidding aside, what I really crave is love and attention, not countertops and canoes. People. Love. Attention. Even though I am still a young pup at heart, that is, quick to play and just as quick to get into trouble. A little reserved around new people/places for a day or so but generally a pretty happy, friendly dog. With a bit of work (attention, love, training, continuing what my foster parents have started), I am going to be a fantastic dog. I am significantly more comfortable and at ease outside in the yard than in the house. For instance, outside, a set of steps doesn’t need a second thought. Inside, however, a staircase requires careful consideration and caution. Likewise, people in the yard are probably friendly, but inside the house, that same person might be dangerous and should not be immediately trusted. One way to get my attention is brushing. I enjoy that! If my new family is found and they can get me to my doctor appointments, they can foster me until I am finished with heartworm treatment and then adopt me. So how about it? Ready for a fantastic mate-to-be and have you got lots of love for me and maybe a canoe?

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!)

Movies:
  1. 6/29/19 – Let’s play ball!

More About Me: Oh, I am so cute and cuddly. Like Charmin, you just have to squeeze. And when people see what has happened to my ears, they hug me even closer. And I soak it all up. Keep the hugs and squeezes a-comin’! I’m a small boy and I fit right in with children and dogs, too. Because of my history, I do have a touch of shyness, but it’s only a touch. I’ve got soft kisses & love for a family who gives it back to me. I’ll give it in triplicate. How’s that? I am playful, too, but mostly I want love. I’m learning what toys are. My foster mom says I need training. You can put me through training if you agree with her, but I think what I need is just love. If you happen to enjoy grooming, I’m the perfect dog for you since my coat was in such bad shape and it will take a while to get it healthy. If my new family is found and they can get me to my doctor appointments, they can foster me until I am finished with heartworm treatment and then adopt me. So ever wanted squeezably soft Charmin?

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white piebald, blue eyes
Weight:
60 pounds (approx)
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 had all positive interactions. Loud noises frighten me, though. So I hope my home has bookworm children.
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. I did not react when kitty swatted me, but I am generally afraid. 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. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met other dogs around my size. I coexist with them, but I am unsure what is going on and why I have been jumping around. My focus isn’t on other dogs. Pet Harbor believes having another dog in my home will be somewhat comforting to me.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Hyun-Joon (Paul) Lee.
History:
Along with others, I was part of a court case. Custody of all of us was awarded to the jurisdiction of our residence. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 6/21/19 – With my girl Piedra, Wiggle Waggle!
  2. 6/21/19 – Just the Right Spot!
  3. 6/29/19 – A little Stranger Danger
  4. 6/29/19 – Visiting my puppy friends!

More About Me: Soft and fluffy. As beautiful as can be. And shy. Other dogs are fine. Humans frighten me. I really want to be with them, though. It’s like at 7 years old, I am learning life. The best home for me has at least one other dog and patient, quiet humans. If I hear a loud noise, I will run behind furniture to get away from the scary noise that I think could come after me. Once I am shown I am not going to get hurt, I will give you soft kisses. See? If my new family is found and they can get me to my doctor appointments, they can foster me until I am finished with heartworm treatment and then adopt me. I am going to be a great, loving dog. Just need someone to spend time with me, understand me, and assure me everything will be okay. And did you know the rewards for working with a dog who has some shyness are immense? They are. Let me show you.

More About Me: Please note it is difficult for one person to take my picture as I am trying to get into the person’s lap under the camera! Though I am a Siberian and will, true to my breed, leave town on the first thing smokin’, I am also content to be lounging with my people. You will see in the videos, the little girl in my foster home calls my Auntie. That’s her nickname for me. I don’t care what she calls me as long as she calls me! A truly happy dog, I never stop smiling or being full of the joy behind the smile. I will play games with other dogs, and I enjoy them, but, really, I want to be with people. After we snuggle and watch some TV and maybe eat a bit of popcorn, they will go to sleep. And that’s when I can bring out the mischief. Hope you didn’t really like that pillow.

Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told I previously lived with multiple dogs. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met other dogs around my size. I play with them, but I came to Pet Harbor with my puppies. So, really, what I want to do is spend time teaching them how to be dogs and then getting the heck away from them. 🙂

More About Me: Cute as a button. These pictures do not do me justice at all, but it’s all I’ve got at the moment, and I want to find a home. So I’ll keep these pictures in my portfolio until I get better ones. It’s funny because nobody ever sees me not smile. I’m always smiling and happy. Yet, these pictures don’t show that or my stunning beauty. Besides mommy, I have another job. I’m a dancer. I can twirl and sashay with the best of ’em. Children adore my petiteness, and I adore children. They are just more puppies to me. I am soft sweetness. Happiness, sweetness, beauty. What more could you possibly want?
