What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
39 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 though my introductions were favorable, that 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. I am afraid of some dogs, though all of the dogs who were rescued along with me are my friends. 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.
Energy Level:
Medium
Owner Aptitude Level:
Shy dog experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Tyrone May.
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: 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?
