What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky mix
Black & white, parti-eyed (both blue & brown in each eye)
95 pounds (as of 2/19/2020)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with children and am gentle with even young children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages. I romp and play with them like I’m one of them, but I’ve been surprisingly gentle with them. I’m just a big goofball. I did knock down a 6yo child because I’m just so big and clumsy and full of love. The child wasn’t very happy about that but forgave me when I batted my eyelashes.
Experience with Cats:
On 3/15/20, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I ignored them. Siberian Huskies, which is 50% of me, 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:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with other dogs & was fine with them. I am all about play. I play all day long. If there are other dogs, I will play with them all day long. If not, I’ll still find play. Boy dogs don’t understand me because I am big and clumsy, and I get right in their faces & don’t back down. But the ladies! That’s a different story altogether. If there are girl dogs around, you’ll find me always right in their midst. And the more, the merrier. Shai, also available for adoption, is my very best friend, but don’t for one second think I’m monogamous. Pet Harbor has no clue how I am with small dogs. The best home for me will have a medium or larger female dog.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
The story was I was put into a county animal shelter because my family moved into a townhouse and decided I was too noisy to take since my prior neighbors complained about my voice. However, Pet Harbor uncovered more to the story. From the shelter, I came to Pet Harbor.
More About Me: Pet Harbor does not take mixed breeds but was told I am a Siberian Husky. Then when I came to Pet Harbor, they found out I am something for sure but not a purebred Siberian Husky. I am a big galoot, as goofy as they come, for sure, an overgrown puppy who likes bending down to kiss little children. For those of you who remember Marmaduke, I certainly am not a Great Dane, like Marmaduke was, but I have the goofiness and the long legs! I’m really funny. Like an innocent child, I haven’t a concern in the world. I’m really all about fun and games. I bounce around, galloping, as it were. I’ll pick up a big ball, toss it in the air, turn on a dime, and go off in another direction towards other play. I really am such fun. I don’t really understand boy dogs. If they have something to say to me (like a growl or a snarl), I go right up in their faces and loudly ask, “Are you talking to me?” See? I’m all puppy, big puppy but puppy nonetheless. If you are interested in adopting me, understand additional qualifications and circumstances apply.
