What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Red & white, blue eyes
68 pounds (as of 12/23/21)
Experience with Children:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages & have had all positive interactions with them. Like most energetic Siberians, I do jump, which some younger children don’t appreciate. The 8-year-old boy in my foster home thinks I’m wonderful. He says I’m his family’s first foster dog who has really played with him.
Experience with Cats:
On 1/14/2022, I was introduced to cats. and have been fine with them. After just a little sniff, I leave them alone. I got a little too close to one, got a smack. Then all was good. Overall, I was not too interested. 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:
When introduced to dogs at the shelter, my interaction was playful. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been very playful with the Siberians in my foster home. I’ve also met dogs of different sizes and have been fine with them.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Nicholas A. Bogdan.
In 2019, I was in a county shelter. I was then adopted. Two years later, they turned me into the same shelter. The reason given was they were moving into an apartment. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Fun. That’s what I’m about: fun. A big goofball! Here’s an example. I went outside and played in the mud with the other dogs in my foster home. So then my foster mom gave me a bath. That was fun! After the bath, I tried to play and dig in the water as it left the bathtub. You will see it in one of my videos. People can’t help but laugh at me! Even my eyes are so big I always look surprised. I keep everybody in stitches. The best thing about me is how I play with my foster boy. I love having a little buddy, and he loves playing with me. It’s a win-win if my new home has a child who will enjoy playing with me. In my foster home, I have been a shadow. I have followed everyone everywhere I can and have to be involved in whatever is happening. One more thing, I have shown my foster family I love to jump. Whether that is jumping up on people or over couches, I have been taken every opportunity to jump up I could.
