What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Black & white, blue eyes
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.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for John M. Rigo.
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.
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.
