What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Black & white, brown eyes
50 pounds (as of 4/22/20)
Experience with Children:
Information coming soon.
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 experience is I get along great with other dogs, despite size & gender differences.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Margaret L. Benson.
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. Read more about our beginning, including watching a video, at
