What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
White, brown eyes
Weight:
42 pounds (as of 9/28/20)
Experience with Children:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children and enjoyed them petting me & giving me hugs.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I live in a foster home with kitties. I do like to focus my attention on them, but when my foster mom tells me to stop, my attention is easily diverted. Kitties tend to stay away from me. Outside cats, as is often the case, though, are prey. I stalk them. And on 9/7/2020, I went after the kitty in my foster home. Fortunately, kitty was not harmed, but I did get a cat scratch cut. So no kitties can be in my home.
Experience with Dogs:
I lived with Nya (also available for adoption) prior to coming to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met other dogs and am fostered with other dogs. I really don’t care about them. People are what I call treasures. I love them. I am pretty bonded to Nya, but, really, we just need homes. If that means we have to separate, we have to separate. We just need homes & families of our own.
Energy Level:
Medium-Low
Owner Aptitude Level:
Experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Celeste Torres Victoria.
History:
Along with Nya, who might be my daughter and is also available for adoption from Pet Harbor Rescue, I was confiscated by animal control from a horrible situation where a wall had to be torn down to even get us free. There were over 20 dogs there. All were confiscated. We had to learn how to be dogs.

More About Me: When I first came to Pet Harbor, I was afraid. Now that I’ve seen the light of day (literally), experienced love, and gotten healthy & clean, I am coming out of my fur. (I don’t have a shell.) My foster mom has truly turned us around. “Us” is Nya, who likely is my daughter; and me. You will see it is difficult to capture videos of me because I want to be up close & personal with the photographer. So we have lots of footage of closeups of my nose! Maybe we can have a conversation over an imaginary cup of tea because I LOVE to talk and have lots to say! A good thing to know about me is I’m a determined athlete. I will climb and have climbed an 8′ fence to get to what I want. Wanna climb Mount Everest with me? Another thing you should understand about me is my beginnings. They were extremely rough. Basically I lived in a shack with Nya. There were over 20 dogs on the property, but in my shack lived Nya and me. We lived in our excrement. How were we fed? Who knows? How did we see humans? We didn’t. You see, when we were rescued, a wall had to be taken down in order for us to be reached. So nobody knows how long we were that way. Do you know the movies and videos where people live in jungles and then learn to be people when they escape the jungle? That’s Nya and me. That means we were primitive. It also means we are extraordinarily grateful. It took multiple baths and a great groomer to even find out our coat color. And our foster mom has been amazing and really has brought us kindly into the world of understanding humans are safe. Now we’re soaking up the love. I love people. I’m making up for all the time I lost not being near them. I especially love children! They’re super cool! It’s rather easy to train me as I am food- and toy-motivated! Something else I love is riding in the car with my face in the wind. When I first came to Pet Harbor, I didn’t play with the other dogs. Naturally, I had no confidence in that area. Again my wonderful foster mom has helped me immensely, and now I will play with other dogs. All Nya & I really need is permanent homes. Well, Pet Harbor thought Nya and I should be separated, but now that they have separated us, we are grieving the missing bond. But what we really need is homes and families, whether that is together or apart. People we can call our own. So if you’re the wonderful family for me, I’m so happy. Just be sure, please, because I want my next stop to be my last and the place I achieve true tranquility.
