Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 9. I have been great with those I’ve met. I love (LOVE!) playing ball. So children who play ball are right up my alley! And on the children who didn’t play ball, I spent my time planting gentle, soft kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 10/22/2022, I was introduced to cats. I showed definite interest, but someone walking by with food in their hands was a quick distraction for me. On 10/30/2022, I was reintroduced to cats and had a bit stronger reaction. I intently focused on the kitties. Pet Harbor believes it is best I have a home without kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. When evaluated at the shelter before coming to Pet Harbor, I was great with other dogs. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been fine with all dogs I’ve met except that pesky Razu, who is more puppy than I like.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Deborah A. Merrick.
Running at large, I landed in a county shelter. My owner did not reclaim me. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: First, let me tell you about my comical side. I like to put balls, tennis balls, beach balls, golf balls, all kinds of sports balls, in my mouth. Try giving me a treat while I have a ball in my mouth. You will see the wheels in my brain work as I try to figure out a way to take them both at the exact same time! The other side of me is love. I’m really sweet & gentle, easy to walk. At least that’s what my foster mom thinks. I’m not a powerhouse energy dog like some of these youngsters. For a Siberian, I’m on the easier side to handle. Some say Siberian huskies are high maintenance. I’m not. If you’ve always wanted a Siberian, I’m a super great starter one!
