Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Steven Dennis Cafiero, Jr.
History:
Because I, along with the other Siberian in my home, was found running at large and chasing horses, I landed in an animal shelter in the greater DC area. My owners then surrendered us to the shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Information coming soon! First, though, the shelter put my age at 6 years. However, Pet Harbor isn’t so sure. At my appt on 9/11, my vet will give a better guessimate, but Pet Harbor thinks it’s more like 2 or 3.

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I was fine with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of up to age 11 and have been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 8/31/2021, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. At first, I actually seemed a bit afraid of them. I turned attention quickly to the humans & showered them with kisses. I got nose to nose with cats three times, even while they were walking, and turned away. Then a cat ran, and that was all I needed. I became stiff and attempted to nip the cat. So the best home for me is cat-free.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with other dogs. At the shelter, I was introduced to a male dog and did well with him. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs, all around my size. I have been fine with all of them. I’m the cute little boy who is everybody’s friend.

More About Me: Forget what you read in the bios of these other dogs. Know that I am the sweetest, gentlest boy around. Like that show “Who is the real” insert name? I’m not the fake one who stands up. I’m the real Mack. You have no option but to fall in love with me. I mean, the only reason I’m homeless is the landlord said no, but why would someone get a dog without clearing it with the landlord first? That’s not fair to the dogs! My absolute favorite thing in the whole wide world is toys. Boy, do I love them. Is it too much to ask to have a warm bed, humans who love me and allow me to love them, and a toy box filled with toys? That’s not too much, is it?

More About Me: How many buttons do you have? I have two: full activation or flatlining. I can be the most active jumping bean in the batch or the laziest sloth there is. And I live each button to its fullest. Whether playing ball with children or playing husky-style with other dogs, I love to play. I also love my good, solid naptime. Seems to me I’d be perfect for any family. I mean, who doesn’t like a good Sunday afternoon snooze? And don’t you also need a good workout? I go to the gym with my foster sister. I love going there. They love me, too! I’m quite the party goer and the center of attention when I arrive! What else am I? Sweet, loving, comical, and vocal. Seriously, I think I’m pretty much perfect. Oh, wait. I should add handsome just in case you didn’t already know that. I’m so vain. I probably think the song you’re playing is about me.

Weight:
55 pounds (as of 8/14/21)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8 and have been great with them, even giving soft kisses. The children in my foster home have fallen in love with me.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 8/15/21, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. Mostly I pay little attention to them until they run. Pet Harbor would recommend I not be left unsupervised with kitties. 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 other dogs. At the shelter, I was introduced to a female dog and did well with her. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs, all around my size. I have been fine with all of them, but I don’t really pay attention to them. I’d rather spend my time with the humans.

At four months old, with my sister, I ended up in a Rhode Island animal shelter. Our owner took us back.

More About Me: My name is Hunter. I’m running for vice president or vice governor or vice something. I’m not presidential or gubernatorial. I’m a 2nd-in-command type. Well, I’m a president-wannabe, but I don’t mind following a strong leader either. And I’m an outstanding vice captain, if I do say so myself. I love to play. I’m pretty cool & know some commands. Sometimes I even listen. My foster mom has been trying to get a video of me playing with other dogs but hasn’t been able to do so yet. She wants you to see how I love to play. The one big thing you will need to understand about me is my grooming needs. If you like brushing dogs, I’m the one for you! Maybe you liked brushing the hair of Barbie dolls when you were young. I’m the adult version of the Barbie hair!

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Michael James Stewart.
History:
Pet Harbor got me from a Virginia animal shelter. I was relinquished to that shelter when my humans were moving & decided they could not take me. They indicated I was 1.5 years old & they had me a year, having gotten me from Facebook Marketplace. We don’t know how much, if any, of that story is correct, but we can tell you for sure one part is incorrect. It turns out I was microchipped already. It turns out I am 6 years old, not 1.5. Apparently I lived in Delaware and my owner at that time reported me missing. I ended up in a Delaware shelter in 2020 as a stray. My owner then was contacted and never responded. So my story gets around!
