What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
49 pounds (as of 11/6/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I spent quite a bit of time with a toddler in my previous home and that I was great with the child. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 6. My interactions with them have all been positive.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told I previously lived with one cat and ignored said cat. While a Pet Harbor volunteer was walking me, we came upon an outside cat. The cat took off. Although the volunteer thwarted my efforts, I was interested in pursuing the cat. Siberian Huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. While I lived harmoniously with one cat, that may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told I got along fine with two dogs in my previous caretaker’s home. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met a few dogs. All my interactions with them have been positive, but I have had turmoil in my short life & am mainly focused on trying to figure out where I am and if I get to at some point have my own family and home.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for John M. Rigo.
History:
Due to a tragic event, through no fault of my own, I ended up with a wonderful caretaker temporarily, which became a permanent situation & an impossibility. So I ended up with Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

More About Me: Besides groceries, what I need is a family who does not mind getting kisses from me. All. The. Time. My foster mom thinks I’m a really good boy. Of course, she’s right except so far I have not seemed to enjoy car rides. Everybody who has met me talks about how sweet I am, though. So balance is everything.

Experience with Children:

All of my interactions with them have been positive. I do have a favorite. The 10yo female Siberian in my foster home is the cat’s meow! Well, I’ve left her in the dust & now play with Barbella, also available for adoption, and my foster brother Siberian All The Time now! We are like Three Musketeers and play, play, play constantly.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Richard Morgan.
History:
A good Samaritan called animal control because I was in a backyard tied around a tree so tightly I could not move. I just sat there and whimpered. They rescued me and took me to the county animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:

  4. 10/10/19 – My food bowl test

More About Me: Such an easy keeper. Really, I’m just about perfect. Well, if you lived the life I lived before, you’d be grateful, too! I have a tiny bit of trepidation, but while I cower slightly, I simultaneously wag my tail ever so gently. And I’ll give you soft kisses, too. I also sing and have a most beautiful voice! I really am a fabulous starter Siberian except I’m not big on running. I have a growth on my front leg. My vet says it’s a nerve sheath tumor. Due to its size & location, I do have a surgery appointment to have it removed. I also have some hip dysplasia going on. I take some meds to help with that. I can live with it, and it does not affect my awesome disposition. Anyway, my foster mom thinks I’m truly amazing. Don’t you feel the same way?

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Ryan D. Fitzgerald.
History:
I got myself in a bit of trouble committing chickenicide. So I went to poultry jail. Because it wasn’t my first trip to the big house, my keepers were going to be in trouble. To avoid that trouble, they signed me over to the jurisdiction. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 10/6/19 – Jungle Gym
  2. 10/12/19 – Please, please play with me!
  3. 10/12/19 – I’m one of the three stooges

More About Me: Flawless. My foster mom tried to come up with a negative about me so I wouldn’t sound like a fantasy, rather than a real dog, but she just could not come up with any negatives. She fell in love with me quickly because I am just so amazing. Even the folks at the shelter from which I hailed fell in love with me. Don’t let other dogs know. I don’t want to be the object of their jealousy! My favorite thing to do is cuddle. Forget a time limit. There is no such thing when it comes to snuggling. If you stop petting me, I will nudge you. And if you sit on the floor, I will come and sit in your lap. Second favorite thing is playing with other dogs. So I really am an angel in the house, even when left alone in a crate. True to my breed, short fences won’t hold me, but why should they? Just so you know, my foster mom gave me a nickname. I think it’s kinda cute. You can call me Chicken Little. You know those movies where they shrink the people? I shrink the chickens, hence Chicken Little. 🙂 So if you’re looking for perfection, here I am . . . unless, of course, you are a chicken.
