Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve met children up to age 10. I’ve been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. At the animal shelter before coming to Pet Harbor, I met cats in the cat room while the cats were in cages, which is not a true test of cat-friendliness, but I did not react to them. On 10/27/2023. Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I sniffed but had no reaction to them, even when they ran. 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 except that I was great with them when evaluated in a shelter before coming to Pet Harbor. I have been fine with the dogs in my foster home, but I really prefer the company of humans. They’re my favorites!

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Dora Marie Menchaca.
Running at large, I landed in a suburban animal shelter. My humans did not come to look for me. So I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Picture a kissing booth at a county fair. How about a hugging booth? You see, that’s where I work. I man (or is it woman?) a hugging booth. And I dish out the best hugs. The. Best. Hugs. Okay. Maybe second only to a bear hug. But who’s going to hug a bear? Why, I’ll even improvise. When someone is seated at my foster home, I wrap my front paws around the person’s leg so I can hug the person. Of course, while they stand, I stand with them and hug them. Yes, I also give kisses. Besides my sweetness revelation, I’ve also been great with the other dogs in my foster home. You can see in the video I play using that classic Siberian butt slam. Oh, and my foster mom wants you to know a little secret. I’m easy to train because I have an insatiable appetite. I’ll do anything you want for food!
