More About Me: If you would be so kind as to allow me to interrupt your activities for just a moment, kind sirs and ma’ams? Perhaps I went to charm school in my early years because my foster parents say I’m a polite gal. After all, I am a lady. Why, if you look closely enough, you might even see me curtsy! Well, at least you might believe I’ll sit pretty and give paw. In foster care, I’ve enjoyed going on walks, at least until we see some wildlife, at which point I enjoy taking my humans for rides! Now that you know my basics, perhaps you will allow me to show you my manners.

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.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been briefly introduced to cats. I showed interest but did not try to harm. When more information is learned, it will be posted here. (I also met bunnies in a bunny cage, and was extremely interested in them and in determining how to get closer to 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 was told I am good with dogs. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been playful with all dogs I’ve met. They’ve all been Siberian husky-sized. However, given a choice between spending time with people or dogs, at my foster home, I have chosen people each time.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
28 pounds (as of 6/6/2022)
Experience with Children:
When this information is learned, it will be posted here, but I am a puppy. So I’m like a child myself.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not place puppies to live with cats because Siberian huskies commonly are not cat-friendly as they age. To homes where cats live, Pet Harbor only places adult Siberian huskies who have been introduced to cats and shown to react positively to them.
Experience with Dogs:
I’m a puppy. So far, since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve been great with other dogs, subject to change as I get older.

History:
My sister and I were put in an animal shelter by our “owner,” who said she got us one hour earlier and we were too “terrified” for her to keep.

More About Me: Of course, I am like all the rest of the puppies in the universe. Cute. Cuddly. Snuggly. Untrained. Full of sharp teeth and nails. Lots of pottying everywhere. Puppy breath. Mischievous. Sleepy. Playful. Fun. Not a care in the world. Clay to mold. But also shy. And guess what. Puppies do grow up! Hopefully you will think my claim to fame is as adorable as I think it is. My claim to fame is when I am restless, all it takes is one soft “Time for sleep” from my foster mom in her sweet, lullaby voice, and I immediately start yawning and put my head on my furry arm pillow.

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, have worried I would knock them over. Bigger children, though, and I have enjoyed 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. I’ve been playful with most, but I’ve been not very happy about others. In foster care, I’ve been much better with females. (See video with Lucille and pictures with Strada.)

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Peter A. Vega.
History:
Along with other dogs, including Denni, who already found a home; and Strada, available for adoption, I was impounded and landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

  5. 2/14/2022 – Howdy

In my foster home, I have played ball or with toys as much as they have desired, and I have been the goofball in the center. But I have required they build in some sweetness breaks. I need my hugs & kisses, too, you see! What my foster family has observed is my love language of cuddles and skritches! They say I love being petted and want lots of snuggles. My foster parents have never known a dog who wants to cuddle as much as I do. Isn’t that distinction cool? Give me that trophy any day!

More observations in my foster home are I’m always happy, always smiling, always have never-ceasing energy. They believe 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 it is believed is the love I will have for all of the people. And my foster parents think I would also enjoy a good game of badminton or volleyball! Life of the party. That would be me, they say!

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.

They say 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. They also warn I do love getting into trouble. In my foster home, 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!

All that said, let’s talk about my occupation. So my foster parents have learned I will jump into any open car, expecting a ride. Therefore, one could assume perhaps I’m studying to be an Uber driver. There’s just that one pesky detail, that I have to have a driver’s license. Ever try to convince the DMV a dog should take an oral driving exam and pay the fee in Milk Bones?

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

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Grey & white, blue eyes
Weight:
40 pounds (as of 6/18/22)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. The first time I was with Pet Harbor, I met children of all ages. I have had all positive interactions with them. I was adopted in 2018. Pet Harbor has no idea if I had interactions with children from 2018 to 2022.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. I do have a prey drive because, along with my brother, Fernando, I participated in eliminating the world of a pesky goat. On 2/7/18, Pet Harbor performed a cat test. The result is, in a word, FAIL. I cannot share my home with kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
Before coming to Pet Harbor in 2018, I lived with Fernando, my brother. When Pet Harbor performed the first dog-dog test with another male dog, the interaction was issue-free. During my second dog-dog test, I expressed dominance behaviors. Now that I am with Pet Harbor, the first thing they noticed is I tried to play with Fernando, but Fernando didn’t really care. Then I humped him for a while. He didn’t care much about that either. I was much more bonded to Fernando than Fernando was to me. The exception to that rule is that when toys were around, I defended all toys as if I were the leader of the entire toy universe. I was fine with the other Siberians at my foster home. Then I met a small dog and a larger male dog at another house. I wasn’t nice to either of them. That was shortly after my neuter surgery. After time passed, I played. A. Lot. Until he got adopted, Romito and I were play buds. We did have a big fight over an unusual situation with a female dog, but we went back to being best buds after that was over. Of course, as mentioned already, when toys were in the vicinity, all bets were off. On 3/17/18, I was adopted. There was a female Siberian in that home. Sadly, I played rough with her, true Siberian play, biting the ankles, grabbing scruffs, and pulling off tags, but I also fought with her some, too. So I went back to Pet Harbor. After that, I played with other dogs a lot except there was one dog I bullied. He was just neutered. At that time, I was fine with the other dogs, who had been fixed for years. Then I got adopted again (2018). Fast forward to June of 2022. I came back to Pet Harbor. I have met several other Siberians. So far, I have had all positive interactions with them. Time will tell if that changes. Bottom line seems to be some dogs I can live with, some I cannot. If your dog(s) understand me, perhaps I can live with them. If they don’t, perhaps I can’t. In any event, at least the 2018 experience showed toys need to be hidden!

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Richard Bruehert.
History:
Pet Harbor was told Fernando and I were put into a shelter because our owners decided they were unable to care for us. From there, we came to Pet Harbor. I was adopted in March of 2018. The female Siberian with whom I lived and I didn’t see eye to eye. So I, sadly, returned to homelessness. In June of 2018, I was adopted again. The next known fact is June of 2022, I was put into an animal shelter in Georgia by someone other than Pet Harbor’s adopter. The shelter scanned my microchip and found out I belonged to Pet Harbor. Pet Harbor got me back.

More About Me: 2022 Bio: Info to come

2018 Bio: Happy and sweet. Those are the best two words to describe me. Helping her drive, I sat next to my transporter, snuggled with her, and gave her kisses. My job title is Chief Sponge. It is my duty to soak up all loving from all available humans. Come closer, and I’ll prove it! Kisses, sweet and soft ones, are the business cards I leave everywhere I go. And where I go is to follow my human(s) wherever they go. Mary had a little lamb. Do you have a little Brue? Food and squeaky toys are at the entrance to my heart. Although sweetness is my primary trait, I also am comical. So hugs and laughter. What more could you possibly desire? And yes, I will sing for my supper. I have a lot to learn, and I promise to be ever so grateful if you teach me. There is a reward for teaching me: unlimited kisses. So how about it? Will you be my furever home?
