***In Heartworm Treatment***

Age:
3 years old
Birthday:
October 24, 2018
What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
White, blue eyes
Weight:
65 pounds (as of 5/12/2022)
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. I have been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 5/7/2022, I was initially introduced to cats. I sniffed a few times and walked away each time. But when kitty ran, I maintained a focus on kitty. On 5/12/2022, Pet Harbor introduced me again to kitties. There was mutual admiration. Siberian huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. Even if Pet Harbor’s evaluation is favorable, it may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. In my evaluation, I did well with another male dog. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been great with all dogs I’ve met. They’ve all been Siberian husky-sized.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Peter Anton Klein.
History:
Running at large, I landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor. I was microchipped. The person who held my microchip registration was contacted but did not redeem me. It makes no sense to anybody who meets me.

More About Me: Ready? Set! Action! Let’s roll! I’m not about to sideline. I’m in the center of the action. Heck, I am the center of action. I love to play rough and tumble with the boy in my foster home. I get so excited to see him, and he eats that up! I’ve also been super obedient in my foster home. You can see these things in my videos. The folks at the animal shelter from which I came pushed hard to get rescue to take me because they saw what a fantastic boy I am. Someone in my past life took good care of me except the heartworm disease. It’s so easy to prevent. Why they didn’t bother is strange. I am a really good boy, and the heartworm disease will be fixed.

While I am not available now to adopt, you should know I will be available to physically go to an adoptive home after my treatment for heartworm disease is finished. If my new family is found, they can foster me until I am finished with treatment and then adopt me if they can get me to my doctor appointments.
