Age:

Birthday:

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
45 pounds (as of 11/23/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told in my former home, I lived with children of various ages and, although great with them, had an energy level too high for them. In my foster home, I have met children of all ages and have interacted perfectly with them. Yes, my energy level is high, exactly what would be expected of a Siberian my age.
Experience with Cats:
On 12/13/19, Pet Harbor introduced me to a cat. I was friendly with the kitty until she ran. Then all bets were off & I went after her as a Grinch. My home, therefore, must be cat-free.
Experience with Dogs:
In my first foster home, I played with other Siberians for hours daily and cried when separated from them. The best home for me likely has another dog of similar energy and playfulness levels.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Thierry Saada.
History:
I was surrendered to an animal shelter “Because she is too wild/too much energy for young children.” In other words, I was surrendered because I am a young Siberian, as simple as that. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 11/23/19 – Hi, I’m Saada!
  2. 1/11/20 – Toy, toy, toy!
  3. 1/11/20 – I’m so cuddly

More About Me: Bubbling over with kisses I am. I have lots of love to give. I also have loads of energy. I can fly around a room with the greatest of ease. Hopefully there is no speed limit. When I land, it is likely to be in your lap! Cuddling is my favorite activity. Sweet, playful, full of fun and love. What more could you possibly want? So do you have another pup to be my companion? I need plenty of exercise. So are you ready to provide that? Can you handle all of my love, kisses, & energy? If so, let’s go home!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
38 pounds (as of 10/30/19)
Experience with Children:
At this time, Pet Harbor’s experience with me is sudden movements & noises frighten me. I am progressing in my foster parents’ attempt to combat my shyness.
Rowdy children might reverse that trend.
Experience with Cats:
Information coming soon.
Experience with Dogs:
Since Pet Harbor has known of my existence, all of my interactions with other dogs have been positive. Life prior to that is unknown. Fergus, the other dog in my foster home, also available for adoption, and I have bonded pretty quickly. We do not have to be adopted together, but my home should have at least one other dog around my size from whom I can continue learning how to overcome my shyness.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Shy dog experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
History:
Running at large, I was trapped and brought to an animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

More About Me: The one major thing to learn about me is my shyness. Rewards are immense when a shy dog trusts, but the journey to that point is taken by people who are kind, patient, knowledgeable, and understanding. More info coming soon.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
47 pounds (as of 12/9/19)
Experience with Children:
At my foster home, I have met children of all ages and have been great with them. In fact, I have lots of kisses for the 3yo. You can call it cleaning her face of the food all over it if you want. I prefer to call it love.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told I was okay with cats but chased them. Then when I left the shelter, I spent the night with a family with kitties before I was transported to my foster home. They introduced me to the kitties, and I was fine with them. Then on 12/13/19, Pet Harbor introduced me to a kitty. I mostly ignored kitty. I had other things on my mind. While the kitty did catch some of my attention, it wasn’t predatory attention. On 12/28/19, Pet Harbor introduced me to more kitties. I completely ignored them. I was more interested in the kitty litter. Siberian Huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. While I did not display aggression towards the cats mentioned here, that may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
I can take them or leave them. When I first got to my foster home, I was in my element with other dogs, but the longer I’ve been here, I’ve decided while I really love playing with them, I also like to puff out my chest and ruffle my feathers. So I can be Barney Bad Boy with other dogs as well. So my home can have dogs or can be dog-free. Well, I mean, if I’m there, it won’t be totally dog-free. Anyway, either way works for me.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Daniel M. Coffey.
History:
The short version is I was surrendered to an animal shelter when my caretaker was evicted. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 11/15/19 – I mean, I guess we can share
  2. 11/15/19 – Meeting a kitty cat
  3. 12/14/19 – Belly rubs and hear me roar
  4. 1/11/20 – I like human more than toy
  5. 1/11/20 – Let’s go!
  6. 1/11/20 – I give the best kisses
  7. 1/11/20 – Will you be my friend?

More About Me: Really comical. I love to play. Toss a ball and let me prove it. Grab a toy and let’s play. Squeak a toy and watch me fly across the room to the direction of the squeak. I am so much fun and will keep you in stitches. In foster care, I’ve been good with kids, cats, and dogs most of the time. I’m polite & know commands. Why does Pet Harbor require I go to an experienced home, then, you ask? Some Siberians make sounds that can be interpreted as mean but aren’t. My adopters must understand that vocalization. Here is a video that captures exactly what I’m talking about because my family needs to understand this behavior displayed by an otherwise perfect me! More importantly, how much time do you have to toss me a ball?
