   – Dam: Pinto Hollow’s Sabella (AKC #unknown)

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 12/19/2022, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. Based on my reaction or, more accurately, lack of a reaction, Pet Harbor suspects I lived with cats in my prior life. I really was unfazed by the kitties, and you can see my interactions with kitties in the videos below. Roux, who came from the same home I did, was equally as unfazed. 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 came from a home with other dogs, including Roux, who found her home already. 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.
Energy Level:

Owner Aptitude Level:

Named for 9/11 Victim:

History:
With Roux, my owner put me in an animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Really, what my foster family has observed about me can be described in one word: love. They can break that down to snuggles and hugs and kisses and desire to be near. I really have been totally full of love since I got to Pet Harbor. My personality just shines. You won’t catch me without smiles and happiness. Casanova, that’s what they should have named me. Big hugs are my claim to fame, the bigger, the better. I just really love giving (and getting) them! My foster dad says I’m a softie. When I am not getting enough attention, I’ve been known to nudge elbows to make sure the people know I’m there waiting for attention! In fact, I’ve been known to dance with my foster mom and sisters. Ed Sheeran is better than Taylor Swift. Failing attention, I play. I love to play: play with people, play with toys, play with dogs. I just love to play. Oh, and I’ll tell you a funny little story about me. When there is an extra chair, I love to sit at the dinner table with the rest of my people! Amazing. That’s what I am. I dance. I sit at the dinner table. I love. I’ve even been gentle with foster pupipes. Truly, what more could you want? So how about it? Can I give you a big hug and showcase the rest of my love to you? Roux was already adopted. I’m still waiting for my home. I’ve been with Pet Harbor a long time, and they keep telling me some family is missing out on one of the best dogs there is or best Casanovas, that is.
