What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, one blue eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
Weight:
44 pounds (as of 5/22/2020)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 6. I adore them. They like chasing me, running with me, getting my kisses. They aren’t thrilled with my jumping up on them because I can knock them down.
Experience with Cats:
I cannot live with cats because, well, the last kitty in my home I thought was my lunch.
Experience with Dogs:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs. They’re all my size or bigger. When I first got to Pet Harbor, I was fine with all of them. On the 5th day, I started fighting. Maybe I think I’m the HBIC? Some dogs are great. Some are not. And there’s no rhyme or reason to it. Seriously, though, my true love is people, all people.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Edward Mazzella, Jr.
History:
Because I ended the life of the kitty my family brought home, my family decided they didn’t want me anymore and put me in an animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor. It really is a shame people don’t research Siberian Huskies before they get them. The kitty would still be alive and I would still have my home if the prey drive of my breed had been respected.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

More About Me: My first love is people, all people. I shower them with kisses. Speaking of showers, my second love is water. Oh, how I love to play in water, especially if people join me! Play and kisses. That’s what I’m all about. Well, I’m as cute as a button, too. Despite knowing commands, I’m a happy-go-lucky puppy who plans to stay young. Wanna help me stay young and let me plant a bunch of kisses on you?

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Joseph Zaccoli.
History:
I had a dad. He traveled a lot & left me with a family when he was on the road. That family kept me on a chain or running free. So they convinced my dad I needed a safer place to be. So Southern Siberian Rescue rescued me and transferred me to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

More About Me: If you want a Siberian without a lot of baggage, pick me. I’m an easy boy. And I take things in stride. I haven’t tried to drag people when I am walked with a leash. I haven’t tried to escape. I don’t come barreling through to shower folks with kisses. I gently come up to you and politely give and request kisses. I’ve had a hard life. I hope the rest of it is easy. I just need one family, one home, somewhere to be the last place I have to hang my leash. And it seems to me with a personality like mine, that shouldn’t be so hard to accomplish.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Leonard J. Snyder, Jr.
History:
Running at large, I landed in a shelter. I was adopted from that shelter three different times and brought back. Please understand my breed, the good & the bad, before you consider adopting me. Finally, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: I adore people. I also love boating and sandbars. There’s a lot of cool stuff about my personality. My foster mom can carry me like a baby. I’m putty in her arms. I’m really overflowing with personality and sweetness. For entertainment, I open cabinets and peanut butter jars. I do have quite a lot to say. I heard this was an election year. So I’m campaigning, see!

When I came to Pet Harbor, I carried the baggage of escapism. I came from an animal shelter by the ocean & was adopted three times. Because of my escapism, I kept being taken back to the shelter. So then I came to Pet Harbor. From my tremendous escape ability, I got nicknames. Pet Harbor at first thought I needed another dog and my anxiety would be relieved. Well, that turned out not to be the case. I’m hoping I will get my forever home soon and all of my nicknames, mainly Spiderman, will disappear like magic!

I’m super smart & know lots of commands. I love toys. I love people the most. All people. Somehow, I seem to know which ones need more tender care (elderly, youngsters). More than anything, I love laps, cuddles, and running. Wow. This is starting to sound like a dating app! Maybe I should save up for flowers & chocolates.

Ready for a baby Spiderman who has a lot to say and will never give you a dull moment who is overfilled with love? If so, let’s go home!

Weight:

Experience with Cats:
I am new to Pet Harbor. 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.

More About Me: Let me tell you a bit about why my name was chosen. You see, I am really picky with my food, BUT I have no problem eating things that aren’t food. For example, when I went to the shelter, my stool was checked. In it, they found a sock. I couldn’t tell you where the other sock of the pair is, but it’s my understanding that solo socks are a common problem. Anyway, one of Pet Harbor’s amazing volunteers, the one who can find a needle in a haystack, found some sock-appropriate names for me from the list of 9/11 victims. I, therefore, became Bobbi, as in bobby socks. My foster family cannot figure out how I could have eaten a sock when I seem to do nothing wrong. Maybe it was my sole mistake ever? I really am a wonderful gal, sweet, gentle, not a powerhouse. I stay out of trouble & emit gentle sweetness. I paid attention when one of the White House inhabitants gave his inaugural address and became kind & gentle.

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. Now that I am with Pet Harbor, though, every time kitty moves, I feel I have to chase her. That doesn’t make for a very happy kitty. 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 experience is I get along great with most other dogs, despite size & gender differences. However, my energy level is such other dogs who are not my energy equals might find me annoying.

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:
I’m loads of fun and as sweet as I can be, and I am progressing really well with overcoming my challenges. I’m not for the novice adopter. My foster mom was ready for the challenge and has helped me turn around to the point where I even alert her when her dog Max is about to have an epileptic seizure.

Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:

Weight:
51 pounds (as of 5/14/20)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with children in my last home and was great with them. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met two children, ages 6 and under. When I met them, I lit up like a Christmas tree and could not kiss them enough.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor has not introduced me to cats yet. When they do, the information will be posted here. Not that this is any test, but when people meow, I stiffen & become focused. 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:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have had all positive reactions to other dogs. I don’t really pay much attention to them, though. Humans are my playmate of choice. So I can take them or leave them. Note: This doesn’t apply to small dogs. I have not met dogs smaller than Siberian Huskies.

Experience with Dogs:

I know them and trust them. Now that I’ve been with Pet Harbor a while, I’ve made friends with other dogs. My foster mom believes my new home needs to have another dog to give me a sense of security and a role model. I don’t think I need other dogs, though.

More About Me: My home will need to be a special home where I am understood. I’m learning to live. My Rome isn’t built overnight. You see, when the wonderful people rescued us from the terrible home where we lived in crates (See video under “History” above.), some of us two per crate, all of us without food or water and many in crates that could not be opened without tools, that new world was hard for some of us. We lived through it, which is an amazing feat in and of itself. We’re learning and growing, and for some of us, it will take a while. When we were rescued by animal control, I was clinging to life. I’m ready for a family, a special family. You see, I have residual effects of that prior home. Sometimes I go in circles. Pet Harbor will get some videos & put them here so you understand what I mean. I have sort of a curve in my back. It looks worse in person than on Xray. My doctor prescribed regular walking to build my core. I’m shy, not as shy as some but shy nevertheless. I am sweet. I’ve given my foster mom a couple of kisses recently. It’s not that I don’t want love. It’s that I don’t know what love is. I’m learning! So my home needs to be people with patience, gentleness, understanding, and full of lots of love to give me. When I was rescued, I was given the earned name of Tyson because I sure am a fighter. I’m also honoring a 9/11 victim. So do you see how very special I am?
