Age:
2 years old
Birthday:
October 21, 2017
What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
Black & white, one blue eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
Weight:
39 pounds (as of 9/15/20)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with children up to age 9 before coming to Pet Harbor and was fine with them. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 7. I have been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On August 26, 2020, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I was submissive to kitties. I had no reaction to kitties near me. Then I wanted to walk down a hall, and a kitty was at the end of the hall. So I turned and walked away. I prefer no sentries in my hallways. (See video below.) 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 was told I lived with Hemenway, also available for adoption, before coming to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs, all around my size. There have been no issues.
Energy Level:
Medium-High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Novice
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for John Thomas Resta.
History:
Along with Hemenway, also available for adoption from Pet Harbor Rescue, I was put into an animal shelter by my former humans. The reason given was “Baby #3.” New baby in, existing fur babies out. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Happiness. That’s the best word to describe me. I’m never anything other than happy. Always happy! Sweet, loving, playful, happy. In my foster home, I have been great with everything: people, cats, dogs. And did I mention I’m happy? Coronavirus might keep some people unhappy, but they won’t be unhappy long if they spend just a small amount of time with me. What more could you possibly want in 2020? Another candidate? No thank you! I’ll be glad when election season is over. I just want everybody to be happy again, no more fighting! If you’re interested in me, you must make sure you have researched just what a Siberian Husky is. I’ve lost at least one home already. So the next one must be my last one. Just as you would with children, you must be willing to work through whatever issues come up. If you’re not ready for that, please don’t apply to adopt. If you are ready, though, that’s fantastic!
