What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Agouti, one brown eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
Weight:
60 pounds (as of 3/26/22)
Experience with Children:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8. I have been great with them, but I am also very strong. So smaller children, seeing my strength, worry I will knock them over. The bigger children, though, and I enjoy playing with toys and balls and running together.
Experience with Cats:
On March 18, 2022, Pet Harbor introduced me to a cat. I went into kill mode. No cat is safe around me. (Don’t worry. No kitty was harmed in this introduction.)
Experience with Dogs:
I came from a house with lots of dogs. When introduced to dogs at the shelter, I showed confidence but playfulness and energy. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs, all Siberian huskies. I’ve been playful with most of them, but I’ve picked out some males and puffed out my chest towards them and ruffled their feathers. Hopefully once I’ve realized I’ve been neutered, this, too, shall pass, but so far I’m much better with the females.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Peter A. Vega.
History:
Along with other dogs, including Denni, adopted, and Strada, available for adoption, I was impounded and landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

We can play ball or with toys all you desire, and I will be the goofball in the center. But we’re going to have to build in some sweetness breaks. I need my hugs & kisses, too! My love language is cuddles and skritches! I love being petted and want lots of snuggles. My foster parents have never known a dog want wants to cuddle as much as I do. I love that distinction. Give me that trophy any day!

I’m always happy, always smiling, always have never-ceasing energy. I’m a good neighborhood barbecue dog. Well, I am a Siberian. So there must be adequate fencing! But what makes me good for neighborhood parties is the love I will have for all of the people and I would enjoy a good game of badminton or volleyball! Life of the party. That would be me!

If my foster parents sit on the floor, I will come straight over and sit on their laps. I mean, wasn’t it an invitation? Even when I do zoomies around the yard at my foster home, I will do 2-3 laps, then run into any human standing by and rub against them, waiting to be pet, then flip over for belly rubs, then resume my zoomie quest, rinse, and repeat.

I 100% act like a puppy. I am curious about everything and want to be involved in everything going on, preferably as that center goofball. I do love getting into trouble. I’ve mastered things like stealing a pen off the table, jumping on all of the furniture, investigating dishes on the kitchen counter, unrolling rolls of toilet paper, stealing sunglasses from an open bag left on the floor and playing Keep Away with them, waking up early in the morning and deciding that everyone else needs to get up, too. See how much money you’ll save on alarm clock electricity? Well, there’s a good reason to adopt me. I’ll save you money!

My coloring is not something you see every day. Here are some Siberians with my same coloring on the husky colors website: https://huskycolors.com/agouti.html
