What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Grey & white, blue eyes
44 pounds (as of 3/14/20)
Experience with Children:
My experience at Pet Harbor is I love children, but they sometimes aren’t such big fans of mine. You see, I jump right into their faces and give them kisses, which knocks them over if they are little. Toddlers don’t like that so much. All I need is some training & growing up.
Experience with Cats:
On 2/24/20, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I completely ignored them, though I did not ignore their litter boxes. Siberian Huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. Even if our evaluation is favorable, it may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
When I first came to Pet Harbor, I ignored the other dogs. Boy, has that changed. Now I play with them 24/7. My very best friend in the whole world is Todd, and he got adopted. I play with others, too, but he was my favorite. In typical female Siberian fashion, I am sometimes antagonistic towards submissive female dogs. Brandy, another female who was adopted, was my partner in crime. With Todd, we made a three-ring circus. Then we added Darya, also adopted, to our play circle.
Energy Level:
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Shai Levinhar.
Originally I was put into a county animal shelter because my elderly owner felt she could not handle me. I was adopted and returned to the shelter a week later and from there came to Pet Harbor. This is what happens when people don’t research the breed. I really don’t want to bounce around anymore. If you plan to adopt a Siberian Husky, please make sure you do your research and understand my kinfolk & me before you do. It will make your lives & my life so much better. Thank you.

More About Me: My energy level is super high. So, too, is my level of happiness. I am filled to the brim with love, joy, & spirit, & I spread it all everywhere. I’m Mikey’s polar opposite. You know how Mikey hates everything (“Let’s let Mikey eat it. He won’t eat it. He hates everything.”)? I love everything. And I have to get up close & personal. I love children so much if I hear a small voice, I will fly out of nowhere to come to that child and knock them over just showing them lots of love. Sometimes they cry & run away from me, which makes me sad because I don’t understand my own energy level. I’m not a gearshift. I don’t have a number of gears. I have sleep (not often), which is recharging, and I have full throttle. I don’t have any in-between gears. I am calming a little, but it’s because I’m given hours every day to run & play with other dogs. So if you are looking for a full-energy dog who is beautiful & has immense love to share, you found her! Oh, wait. Before I forget, let me tell you about my toe. I had to have a toe amputated. If you want to know why, maybe you can translate my veterinarian’s records. I can’t read it. Let’s be honest. I can’t read at all, not because I don’t know how but because that means sitting still, and I’m not going to do that. It’s kind of funny that every video Pet Harbor has of me shows me calmer than I am, but that’s because it’s tough to take a video when I’m on the move!
