What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
48 pounds (as of 2/27/20)
Experience with Children:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve met several children of all ages. I’ve been great with all of them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor has not introduced me to cats yet. When they do, the information will be posted here. 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 introduced to dogs in the shelter, I had all positive reactions. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I haven’t met a dog I haven’t loved.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Novice
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Robert L. Cruikshank.
History:
Tied to a tree by a leash, I chewed through the leash. From there, I went to an animal shelter. They located my owners. My owners did not fetch me. So, from there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Man, I need to be the poster child for champion. Don’t sweat the small stuff. That’s my motto. I have a badly fractured leg. On the X-ray, my leg looks awful. But check out my videos & you’ll see I sure don’t let it stop me. After consulting our vets, it seems the best course of action is to do nothing. The fracture is not new. So surgery isn’t a good option. I do use the leg (left rear). So amputation is not a great idea. So my leg & I, we get along. Loads & loads of fun, I am. Love. I love dogs. I love people. I’m all about having fun. For sure, there is no such thing as a bad day when Hank’s in town. Since all good Siberians need a job, mine is protection. Since idle paws are the devil’s workshop, I protect my fellow canines (and humans) from being afflicted with idle paws. You know that thing called sleep? That’s really just breeding ground for idle paws. So I’ll surely wake you. It’s in my job description. Also, I sometimes like to chew things. After consulting vets & knowing my puppylike personality & pearly white teeth, Pet Harbor thinks I’m around 1.5 years old. So do you have dogs who share my levels of energy & love who live with you or visit frequently who would love to play with me and do you need a live alarm clock? Okay. Maybe let’s rewrite that since I’ll bet that last part won’t be met with exuberance. Rewind. So do you have dogs who share my levels of energy & love who live with you or visit frequently who would love to play with me? If so, why are we waiting? Let’s go home!
