What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky mix
Colors:
Black & white, brown eyes
Weight:
26 pounds (as of 5/12/2022)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8 and have been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. At Pet Harbor, I encounter cats daily in my foster home. I pay too much attention to them. So while I do not try to harm them while I am this young, I probably will not be good with them as I grow. 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. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been very playful with other dogs.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Alexander Braginsky.
History:
Running at large, I landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 4/23/2022 – Bundle of Joy

More About Me: My DNA results are in. I am 66% Siberian husky and a few other things thrown in for good measure. See Insky DNA. I’m a cute and playful puppy, like all the rest of the puppies in the universe. When I landed in the shelter, I was depleted medically. My skin is still a little itchy, but I’ve been given medical clearance and am spayed. So I’m ready for a home!

Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Black & white wooly, blue eyes
Weight:
72 pounds (as of 4/18/2022)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told my history with children was great. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met a 3yo child. I was great with him.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. 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:
For the past year, I have lived with Lavelle, also available for adoption. At the shelter, I participated in dog playgroups and shared living quarters with other dogs. There were no issues. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs, all Siberian husky-sized. I’ve been great with them. See my videos.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Eric L. Bennett.
History:
Lavelle & I were put in an animal shelter by our former owners, who said their health concerns were causing issues with them caring for us. From there, we came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: Every good Siberian has an occupation. I’m a caboose. There are other names for what I do, but I think caboose is cute. Don’t you? A train is not complete without a caboose. The caboose is a sign everything else has gone first. When my foster brothers & sisters go inside from outside, I am always the caboose. I’m a good boy helping my foster mom make sure all the other kids are inside, right? But check this out: That’s not even my foster mom’s favorite thing about me. She loves that I’m a gentle gentleman. Out of nowhere, I will clumsily climb into her lap, plant my front paws on her shoulders, and plant some kisses on her!! Hey, maybe I’m a gardener, not a caboose, because that’s a lot of planting, isn’t it?

***In Heartworm Treatment***

Age (approx):
1-1/2 years old
Birthday (approx):
October 20, 2020
What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky

Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8 and have been great with them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 4/27/2022, I was introduced to a kitty. I jumped back away from kitty. On 4/28/2022, I was reintroduced to kitty. I was pretty focused on sniffing him but did not try to harm him. On 5/1/2022, I was reintroduced to kitty. At this time, I had a stalker focus on kitty and tried desperately to reach him. So out of caution for kitty safety, Pet Harbor will only place me in a cat-free home.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. In my shelter evaluation, I exhibited playfulness with another male dog. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been great with the other dogs except when I want to be with people and another dog comes around, sometimes I plant my flag.

More About Me: There are two things I love: people and food. Boy, would I love to be a restaurateur. Man, that would be the life: surrounded by both food and people! I’d think I’d died and gone to Heaven. I am super loving. I put my head on my foster mom’s lap if she’s sitting or chest if she’s lying down, and I shine my baby blues until she pets me. Of course, she never pets me enough. I go from person to person. When they stop petting me, I move to the next person. When I’ve made it around to everyone, I then start the rounds again. But, really, I don’t make the rounds much because I’m so sweet they can’t help but pet me.

I am a small male Siberian. I’d say I’m compact. So I think I’m just the right size for young people. And, of course, I’m easy to train with food!

While I am not available now to adopt, you should know I will be available to physically go to an adoptive home after my treatment for heartworm disease is finished. If my new family is found, they can foster me until I am finished with treatment and then adopt me if they can get me to my doctor appointments.

More About Me: Really, I’m perfection. Why, you ask? If you’ve never had a Siberian husky before, then I’m your dream dog. In my foster home, I haven’t displayed an energy level shown by the young whippersnappers most days. So I’m a good introduction to the breed without being off the chain. If you check out my video, you will hear my soft & gentle woowoos. So if you like talking and singing Siberians but haven’t been exposed to their voices in your home, my subdued version is a great introduction. I have been fantastic with the children in my foster home. I haven’t barreled through them. I’ve been quite polite with them, and they adore me. I give them soft, easy kisses, and they’ve really enjoyed me. So if you have youngsters, I’m a good introduction to the breed for them. I’ve had a hard life. When I came to Pet Harbor, the initial thought was I was about 6 years old, but the more vets looked at me, the more that age estimate increased. I came to Pet Harbor with really bad skin and ear infections, choppy fur because of it, and without being spayed. Obviously I was without love and care, and I so deserve it. So the final piece to my perfection is I will warm the hearts of those who adopt me knowing they gave me the love and family I have always deserved and wanted. Then, finally, I will learn in my last years that I really am worthy. If you got through this without tears, you’re stronger than the person writing it, but now it’s time for the author to go give me a hug. Thank you for reading my story.

More About Me: So I have two occupations. First, I’m a toymaker. To be a toymaker, one must have as a foundation a love of toys. I have that. The second ingredient of toymaking is creativity. I have that, too. I will turn just about anything into a toy. Good luck trying to be sad around me. I aim to not allow that. My second occupation is also a sadness-eradicating one. I’m a cuddler. At least in my foster home, I’ve been a cuddler. I soak up all the love I can find. For both of my careers, I am a pretty happy fella. Maybe I’m part bunny because I’ve been known to often do a sort of little hoppy dance. So how about it? Wanna dance?
