Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children prior to coming to Pet Harbor. Since I’ve been with Pet Harbor, all people I’ve met, I’ve loved. In fact, my love is so deep I don’t want them to leave me!
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats prior to coming to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have not yet been introduced to cats. When more information is learned, it will be posted here. 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. Since I’ve been with Pet Harbor, all dogs I’ve met, I’ve loved. In fact, the best home for me will have at least one other dog.

Named for 9/11 Victim:

More About Me: Beautiful, right? Guess what. I also have an amazing personality. I am super sweet & love everybody I meet, at least everybody I’ve met so far, including dogs. My favorite pastime, in fact, is meeting new people. Getting belly rubs is a close second. My foster parents laugh at me a lot because I throw my toys up into the air and catch them on their way back down. Teaching me tricks is probably an easy thing to do because I am food-motivated. Well, there is that little thing called stubbornness, but I guess you already realize Siberians are stubborn or you wouldn’t be on this page. A secret thing about me is I like chasing butterflies, kind of like the beautiful song by Frankly Speaking about his dog (tissue warning) except please don’t have a Siberian attached to a retractable leash. My energy levels are chill at one end of the spectrum and turbo at the other. So how about it? Ready to take me on a butterfly chase?
