Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children prior to coming to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages and have been great with them. In fact, I’m easy and gentle. So even little children I’ve met have loved me.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats prior to coming to Pet Harbor. At Pet Harbor, I encounter cats daily in my foster home. I ignore them. 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 prior to coming to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been great with other dogs except when I want to guard something, like a savory treat or bag of garbage.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Nancy Clare Bueche.
Running at large, I landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Really, I’m perfection. Why, you ask? If you’ve never had a Siberian husky before, then I’m your dream dog. In my foster home, I haven’t displayed an energy level shown by the young whippersnappers most days. So I’m a good introduction to the breed without being off the chain. If you check out my video, you will hear my soft & gentle woowoos. So if you like talking and singing Siberians but haven’t been exposed to their voices in your home, my subdued version is a great introduction. I have been fantastic with the children in my foster home. I haven’t barreled through them. I’ve been quite polite with them, and they adore me. I give them soft, easy kisses, and they’ve really enjoyed me. So if you have youngsters, I’m a good introduction to the breed for them. I’ve had a hard life. When I came to Pet Harbor, the initial thought was I was about 6 years old, but the more vets looked at me, the more that age estimate increased. I came to Pet Harbor with really bad skin and ear infections, choppy fur because of it, and without being spayed. Obviously I was without love and care, and I so deserve it. So the final piece to my perfection is I will warm the hearts of those who adopt me knowing they gave me the love and family I have always deserved and wanted. Then, finally, I will learn in my last years that I really am worthy. If you got through this without tears, you’re stronger than the person writing it, but now it’s time for the author to go give me a hug. Thank you for reading my story.

Well, at long last, I found my home. I waited a long time for my home. My perfect self found a perfect mom & home. My mom is a former Pet Harbor adopter. She adopted Tatiani (formerly Pet Harbor’s Sara). Tatiani lived a long and happy life. I know I will, too. Pet Harbor volunteers are in love with me. One volunteer even donated my adoption donation in memory of her beautiful Siberian husky Kaya. You can read about Kaya here.
