Captain Jack – Adopted!
I went to my forever home on December 17, 2022!
8 years old
July 8, 2014
What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Black & white, one blue eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
54 pounds (as of 11/2/22)
Experience with Children:
When I first came to Pet Harbor, Pet Harbor was told I lived with children in my prior home and was great with them. After coming to Pet Harbor, upon meeting children up to age 6, I lit up like a Christmas tree and could not kiss them enough. Then I found a home. There were children in my home and I did well with them. In my foster home, I live with teens and have been great with them. In addition, I have met younger children while in foster care and have done well with them also.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor has not introduced me to cats yet. If they are able to do so, 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:
Before coming to Pet Harbor, I ran free a good bit and would jump into people’s yards and play with their dogs. After coming to Pet Harbor, I had all positive reactions to other dogs. Running and wrestling with one of my foster sisters, another Siberian husky, I especially enjoy. On walks, I am interested in meeting other dogs, but since I enjoy my walks, too, I move on quickly. Pet Harbor has no knowledge of how I am with dogs smaller than Siberian Huskies. In my adoptive home, there were no other dogs, but Pet Harbor was told they discovered I am great with female dogs and some males with other males not so much. In my foster home, I live with two females and a male. I love the females and tolerate the male! I am not a dominant male.
Owner Aptitude Level:
I repeatedly escaped the 4′ fence at my house and kept landing in doggy jail. Finally, my humans surrendered me to the doggy jail. So then I was safe. No more escaping. Southern Siberian Rescue and Pet Harbor Rescue worked jointly to get me into Pet Harbor’s program. Then I got adopted in 2020. Unfortunately, my then family moved and left me behind. I thought I was part of the family. I had no idea I was something that could just be tossed aside. If you can’t make a lifetime commitment to me, keep it movin’. I need and deserve a family who will stick with me through their thick and thin. And understand that when they place a dog in a home and the home fails the dog, rescue thinks twice about the whole purpose for its existence. So one bad apple can spoil a whole bunch and ultimately end the lives of lots of dogs. Please do not discard or abandon family members, fur or otherwise. So after two years believing I had a home and family, I came back to Pet Harbor, and here I am homeless . . . again.
More About Me: I hate to brag, but I am an awesome dog and great companion! Everybody who has met me along my journey has fallen madly in love with me. While I am mature and can chill with the best of them, I also enjoy a good romp with other pups and really love long walks. Oh, and can you please give me a belly scratch or two? Thank you so very much. Probably I should also let you know I’m not a big fan of crates, but when my foster family leaves me alone uncrated, I haven’t gotten myself into any trouble. So it’s all good.
