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.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats prior to coming to Pet Harbor. On 11/15/2022, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I showed a great deal of interest but did not attempt to harm them in any way. 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. When evaluated at the shelter before coming to Pet Harbor, I was great with the dogs I met. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been great with the dogs I’ve met. However, even when they attempt to entice me with play, I haven’t interacted with them. I have mostly ignored them.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Thomas F. Swift.
In 2016, I was adopted from a city shelter. At that time, I had four legs. In 2022, running at large, I ended up back in the shelter. This time, I had three legs. My adopter did not reclaim me. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.

More About Me: I’m told swift drivers suck. Well, this Swifty doesn’t. Why? Because I don’t drive! Nor do I suck! In fact, I think I should be a Swifty truck driver, always on the go. Some of you in the trucking business might get this analogy. I can turn on a dime and don’t need GPS to reach my proper destination. I’m told swift drivers tend to get themselves into some odd situations. Somehow I’ve gotten into an odd situation, but someone did it to me. We all wonder what happened to my leg. We don’t know, but it doesn’t matter to me. I am totally fine with three!

Although I can and do run & play with my four-legged brethren, my foster mom says I am a pretty laidback guy. You will see in my pictures I’m frequently upside down. And let me tell you a secret. My foster family calls my brother a grumpy old man, but I go in my foster brother’s crate while he’s in there, and he shares with me! Isn’t that amazing?

Speaking of my foster dad, my foster dad keeps laughing every time he says my name. I wonder why.

If you’re looking for an awesome tripawd, come and meet Swifty. Maybe I’m the one for you.
