I went to my forever home on January 29, 2022!
December 23, 2018
What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Red & white, blue eyes
55 pounds (as of 9/9/21)
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.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 8/19/2021, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. When a cat swatted at me, I lunged for the cat. It is not safe for cats to live with me.
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. When I first came to Pet Harbor, I met several dogs, all around my size. I was fine with all of them. At first, I ignored them. Then I played with them. Drake was the leader. When Drake moved to a different foster home, I became the alpha-wannabe. That means I have to fight for the position. True alphas don’t. It’s intrinsically known they are alpha. Well, that’s what I do. Even when Drake came back to visit, I tried to fight him, although I idolized him when we lived together. Interestingly, since three new dogs have come to my foster home, all intact, male & female, I have been completely fine with them, no fighting whatsoever. Maybe the way to say it is I pick my friends. I do not discriminate based on race, religious, gender, or any other reason. I’m an equal opportunity fighter.
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
At four months old, with my sister, I ended up in a Rhode Island animal shelter. Our owner took us back. Then in 2021, for the crime of running at large, I landed in an animal shelter in the DC metropolitan area. Where my sister is and why I was running at large are unknown. I then came to Pet Harbor.
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. I used to not mind following a strong leader either, but now I will protest. I’m an outstanding vice captain, if I do say so myself. Maybe I’m the only one who says it. 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! And don’t I look grand and majestic when I am beautifully groomed? I’m royalty I tell you . . . or at least presidential.
I’m a happy boy, comical, loving, all of those things everybody seeks. Bend down so I can give you a kiss or I’ll come up to you! Either way suits me fine.
