What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
Grey & white, bi-eyed (one blue eye, one brown eye)
Weight:
43 pounds (as of 1/26/21)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told children lived in my prior home, but I was chained. So how much interaction I actually had with them is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have only met one toddler. I obeyed when told to sit. I was calm, sniffed the child, then licked her once. I sat patiently for a few minutes until the toddler came in to pet me & get a kiss. Please understand, though, I am a full-speed dog. I could barrel through small objects, including animals and humans. I’ve even been known to knock over adults when I’m in a case of the zoomies.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told when I met a kitty prior to coming to Pet Harbor, at first, I ignored kitty, but after I got more comfortable with my environment, I had to be separated from the kitty for the kitty’s safety. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been separated from the kitty in my foster home after an initial meet. My energy level and social awkwardness could be dangerous for kitty. I do whine and try to get to kitties when I see them.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told my history is I am fine with other dogs but socially awkward, having never learned how properly to play with others. I can be too much for some dogs. In my first foster home since coming to Pet Harbor, I exhibited typical female Siberian husky behavior in that I was not very nice to my female Siberian foster sibling, even when she was ignoring me, but I played & played & played with my male Siberian foster sibling. So Pet Harbor moved me to a new foster home. Since coming to that foster home, I have met all sorts of dogs, male and female, and have played and played with all of them without any issues, even small and young ones. I love to roughhouse with other dogs.

More About Me: First important thing for you to know – my home should have a Volkswagen van for camping because that’s what I love to do. You don’t have a VW van? Want to buy one for me? How about any kind of camping gear? No? What about a tent in the backyard? Not even that? Can we at least roast marshmallows in the yard? No marshmallows? What’s a girl to do? Fine. If I must, I’ll settle for being with my pack wherever we are, but I really do love to go camping. I do want to be with my pack. When any pack member leaves, I cry and whine. When all of my pack members leave, I show them I mean business by killing crates. My pack is smarter than I am. They found an unkillable crate. Finally, you should know I am quite smart and quite trainable. Training is pretty easy, too, since I surely am motivated by what goes in my tummy. Now that I’ve talked full circle from marshmallows to marshmallows, let’s talk adoption! Did you get that van?
