What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, brown eyes
Weight:
50 pounds (as of 7/15/20)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 7. I have been great with them and really want to play with, dance with, and hug them, but because of my energy level, they run away from me.
Experience with Cats:
Because I was present or involved in killing a cat, I certainly cannot live with kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs except that I was a partner in crime with two. When introduced to other dogs at the shelter, I was fine. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs around my size. I’m fine with them, but people are my oyster!
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for VIncent M. Boland, Jr.
History:
I was surrendered to an animal shelter because, well, I kind of got myself in a little bit of trouble. I claim innocence, but, you know, wrong place, wrong time. Three of us were there. A kitty died. Who actually pulled the trigger, so to speak, is open for debate.
Movies:
Coming soon!

More About Me: Information coming soon. In the meantime, just picture it. I give hugs. I give lots of hugs.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, brown eyes
Weight:
52 pounds (as of 7/18/20)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 7. I have been great with them, but please understand I am all puppy. So I do mouth, meaning I use my mouth in play and can unintentionally hurt fragile skin.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 7/18/20, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. While I did not have a strict focus or stiff body, the cats did get my attention in a friendly fashion. When one attempted to run, I attempted to chase, still seemingly in a friendly fashion. On 7/20/20, the introduction was repeated. See the video in the Movies section below entitled Kitty Land. 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:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs except that I was found running at large with Bishop, also available for adoption. When introduced to other dogs at the shelter, I was fine. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs. I just want to play and play and, well, find stuff, anything, I can investigate and perhaps ingest!
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Lee Adler.
History:
Running at large, Bishop, also available for adoption, and I landed in a county animal shelter. From there, we came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Information coming soon! Note that the funny-looking area on my face was where a mass was removed on 7/18. Though the assumption is it is a histiocytoma (benign tumor), it will be sent for pathology to be certain.

Obviously, everything written here is subject to change.

Of course, the safety of our volunteers and adopters is of utmost importance to us. In light of that and due to jurisdictional and PetsMart rules, Pet Harbor has suspended its public events at this time, at least through August. We will revisit the decision at the end of that period. Therefore, instead of meeting and selecting from all of the dogs, it is necessary to narrow the choice to one dog and one meeting until we are able to again hold public events. This should not prevent people from applying to adopt! ***Pet Harbor does continue to work with prospective adopters during this time.***

At this time, adoptions are still occurring with multiple safety precautions in place. Specifically:

~ Prospective adopters have the option of a virtual home visit using FaceTime, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Google Meet, Skype, or similar virtual method or a video home visit, in lieu of an in-person home visit.

~ Upon application approval, these steps happen:

1) All adoption documentation is completed electronically at least one day prior to meeting a dog. No exceptions.
2) To comply with social distancing and our own logistical concerns, applicants & Pet Harbor will work together to narrow the choices to only one dog.
3) Without a guarantee, of course, if the applicants intend to take the dog home that day after the meeting, depending on factors such as where the dog is fostered, volunteer schedule, etc., with proper safety gear, our volunteers with that one dog will meet with everyone in the applicant household (human & canine), but if the applicants do not intend if it all goes well to take the dog home that day, there will not be a meeting. The meeting will occur at or near the dog’s foster home, which will usually be throughout Virginia or in suburban Maryland or D.C.
4) The volunteer holds the dog forward on a 6′ leash & the applicants hook their own leash to the dog’s collar and disconnect the Pet Harbor leash;
5) From a minimum distance of 6′, the applicants will spend time with the dog while the volunteer is still able to assist and answer questions;
6) If the applicants decide to adopt, the donation will be made electronically and the receipt emailed;
7) If the applicants decide to adopt, the volunteer will take family pictures from a safe distance; and
8) If the applicants decide not to adopt, the reverse with leashing happens, the documentation is deleted, and everybody goes their own way.
