What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Black & white, bi-eyed (one blue eye, one brown eye)
53.4 pounds (as of 12/2/2023)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages. I’ve been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 9/18/2023, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I ignored them. See video below from 11/22/2023 of me with cats. 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 two other dogs. When I was evaluated at the shelter before coming to Pet Harbor, I was great with all the dogs I met. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been great with all dogs I’ve met. (See videos.) For some reason, though, while at adoption events, I am not a fan of other dogs, but I have been at all other times.

More About Me: Pet Harbor will tell you I am one of the best dogs they’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. I am absolutely the happiest, most loving, sweetest girl in the universe. No one can say, “She likes ME!” because I like EVERYBODY! Correction. I LOVE everybody! I want to climb in everyone’s lap while smiling and wagging my tail at its fullest. I go from one lap to the next. Showers of kisses. People of all ages are just fine with me. And other than at adoption events, I’ve not shown any issues with dogs or cats. Rabbits, that’s a different story, but dogs and cats and people have all been just wonderful with me. And I’m not a pushy powerhouse. I’m a lady. Seriously, Pet Harbor calls me a “refreshing difference.” My name was Helena. Pet Harbor changed it to Helene to honor a 9/11 victim.
