What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
31 pounds (as of 3/27/20)
Experience with Children:
In foster care, I have met an elementary school-aged child. I was interested in him & let him pet me, but I didn’t cuddle with him.
Experience with Cats:
After I was rescued and before I came to Pet Harbor, I was introduced to cats in my temporary foster home. All of those interactions were positive. 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:
My best friend is Ronnie, also available for adoption. We play all day every day except when we’re refueling (sleeping). My new home will need to have at least one other dog, either gender, with a similar energy level to mine.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Angel Ramon Pena.
History:
Along with several others available for adoption, we came from a horrible beginning, yet are amazingly grateful for love. Thankfully, we were seized by the authorities. Our humans were put in jail. We went to the shelter, then the SPCA, and then came to Pet Harbor, each an important piece of our journey to safety.

More About Me: You are welcome to call me Little Red Riding Hood if you want, but you won’t find a Big Bad Wolf in my story. I’m so tolerant that I’d play even with a Big Bad Wolf or an annoying little wolf or a high-energy rough player like Ronnie, who since I practice unconditional love is my BFF. Ronnie is also available for adoption. Prior to Ronnie, I had other BFFs. So after Ronnie, I’ll find new ones. Just as long as there is a dog who will play with me, it’s all good. My story can end happily ever after. In my case, that happiness was acquired. Because of how my story started, I’m a tad hesitant with people but just a tad. I’m learning how to be normal or should I say just how to be. The circle on my back where hair is missing was where a cyst like a large pimple was removed. It’s nothing, and it’s gone. So if you can help me find my lost mittens . . . oh, wait. That’s a different nursery rhyme. Forget the three kittens and help me find some playmates or maybe just the picnic basket.
