What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
White, blue eyes
Weight:
50 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 ignore them until they rub against me. Then I just move out of their way. 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:
I lived with Celeste (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 have been great with them all. In fact, another dog is required in my home. Because of our beginnings, I need that security blanket another dog provides. I am pretty bonded to Celeste, who probably is my mother, 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
Owner Aptitude Level:
Experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Siew-Nya Ang.
History:
Along with Celeste, who might be my mother 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 have come out of my fur somewhat. (I don’t have a shell.) My foster mom has truly turned us around. “Us” is Celeste, who likely is my mother; and me. I’ve learned to become a dog so well I will eat your remote control if you let me! I am still somewhat shy & hesitant, but I have made great strides. Warming up to people takes me a bit of time, but, oh, the rewards for the people! I love to be rubbed. I’m making up for lost time. Though I didn’t do it at first, now I sit on the couch with my foster mom to get as much loving as possible. Again making up for lost time, I do have some puppy behaviors, such as chewing things. 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 Celeste. There were over 20 dogs on the property, but in my shack lived Celeste 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 Celeste 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. All Celeste & I really need is permanent homes. Well, Pet Harbor thought Celeste 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.
