Spayed female Siberian husky

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. On 10/21/2022, my first day at Pet Harbor, I exhibited some subtle warning behaviors when interacting with a 6yo child who came into my personal space. I then met a 9yo child and had no such behaviors. The 6yo child sat next to me, and I was great when she was petting my head, but when she put her hand across my back, that’s when I growled. 10/30/2022, an adult did that same motion of putting a hand across my back, and I closed my smile in the same way I did with the child. I am very sweet all the rest of the time. Well, unless you’re giving me a shot or drawing blood! A month later, I’m totally great with the same children. No matter where they pet me, I haven’t reacted negatively since the beginning of my time in foster care.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 10/21/2022, I was introduced to kitties. I didn’t react and was easily distracted, but when kitty ran, I ran after. On 10/30/2022, I was reintroduced to kitties. I had no issues with them. 11/23/2022, still no issues with 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. In my evaluation, I did well with another female dog. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been great with all dogs I’ve met. They’ve been male and female Siberian husky-sized.

More About Me: Information coming soon! First, while I am not available now to adopt, you should know I will be available to go to an adoptive home after my treatment for heartworm disease is finished. If my new family is found before my treatment is completed on January 15, 2023, they can foster me until I am finished with treatment and then adopt me if they can get me to my doctor appointments.
