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 very much in their faces with love & kisses & can easily knock over younger ones.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On August 26, 2020, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I was interested but easily distracted. I made playful gestures with my paws towards kitty. When I got close to kitty, kitty swatted me. I yelped and backed away. I did bark a lot at kitty, but I also was easily distracted. You can see some of it in the video below. The part where the kitty swatted me is only partially there because you can’t see the cat, but you’ll be able to tell where that point was. After the end of that video, the kitty walked down the hallway. I went after her (on leash). When I got to her, I sniffed her and did nothing else. 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. When introduced to other dogs at the shelter, there were no issues. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs, all around my size. There have been no issues.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
My humans put me in an animal shelter, saying they were moving to an apartment. I don’t understand what that has to do with my losing a family. From the shelter, I came to Pet Harbor.
More About Me: A comical, happy, playful Siberian who gets into trouble, is full of energy, & does many things that make you laugh. I’m kind of what people think of when they think of a Siberian: handsome, loving, and full of fun. Example: Within 5 minutes of first exploring the yard at my foster home, I became unrecognizably mud-covered. So maybe the idea is I get the last laugh. Wanna bring me into your family & try to get the last laugh yourself? We’ll see who wins! Oh, really, it doesn’t matter because, even if you win, I’ll quickly do something else comical to make you give me back the trophy or I will shower you with so much love you will forget you even won!
