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 most dogs. 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?

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Red & white, blue eyes
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:
The best home for me has at least one other dog around my size & energy level. There is nothing better to me than playing with other dogs. When I had my neuter surgery and had to be crated away from other dogs, I cried nonstop. Once reunited with my pals, no more tears. The only issue I’ve shown in my foster home is toward intact or newly neutered males. Since I’m a newly neutered male, I think I rule over them. I’ve been fine with females & males who have been neutered a while.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Daniel M. Coffey.
The short version is I was surrendered to an animal shelter when my caretaker was evicted. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
