What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
31 pounds (as of 9/13/2022)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 9 and have been great with them. My energy level is extremely high. I could knock over young children just in play.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 9/41/2022, I was briefly introduced to cats. Because of my extreme energy level, the cats weren’t fans, but I did not try to hurt them. 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. When evaluated at the shelter before coming to Pet Harbor, I was fine with other dogs except my energy level was too much for a small dog. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met male & female dogs around my size and larger. I have been great with all of them. Christine, also available for adoption, is my foster sister and my BFF. We play a lot.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
History:
Running at large, I landed in a county shelter. My owner did not reclaim me. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

More About Me: In my foster home, I have been super sweet and happy. I give my foster family kisses, but they are soft kisses. I have been so gentle, the children I’ve met in the foster home love me. When they have stopped giving me attention, I have gently pawed at them until they focus on me. So c’mon. Let’s run, jump, and play and then take some snuggle/belly scratch breaks!

More About Me: If you would be so kind as to allow me to interrupt your activities for just a moment, kind sirs and ma’ams? Perhaps I went to charm school in my early years because my foster parents say I’m a polite gal. After all, I am a lady. Why, if you look closely enough, you might even see me curtsy! Well, at least you might believe I’ll sit pretty and give paw. In foster care, I’ve enjoyed going on walks, at least until we see some wildlife, at which point I enjoy taking my humans for rides! Now that you know my basics, perhaps you will allow me to show you my manners.

More About Me: Are you my lullaby person? What is that, you ask? It’s my claim to fame or claim to cuteness, to be more precise. My claim to fame is when I am restless, all it takes is one soft “Time for sleep” from my foster mom in her sweet, lullaby voice, and I immediately start yawning and put my head on my furry arm pillow. Do you think my claim to fame is as adorable as I think it is? While I am shy, I have definitely been coming to my foster mom now that I have been with her a bit. So I’m not as shy as I was at first. I also love to be carried and sitting in laps. Though shy, my tail is always wagging. Another cute thing about me, I clumsily run and fall around the house, entertaining for sure! Oh, and, boy, do I love to talk. Not only when I am ready to start my days but also interacting with other dogs, I am the loudest! I mean, don’t I have to be sure my voice is heard? I sing well, too. Can you keep a secret? I’m practicing for fame! I want my pawprint at Grauman’s! Oh, and did you know Siberians need an occupation? I have one! Don’t tell anyone because I fear they might try to stop me from doing my job. My occupation is that of a flip flop exterminator. And I do it well. Very well. My foster mom has held funerals for six pairs so far. But who is counting?

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Agouti, one brown eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
Weight:
60 pounds (as of 3/26/22)
Experience with Children:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8. I have been great with them, but I am also very strong. So smaller children, seeing my strength, have worried I would knock them over. Bigger children, though, and I have enjoyed playing with toys and balls and running together.
Experience with Cats:
On March 18, 2022, Pet Harbor introduced me to a cat. I went into kill mode. No cat is safe around me. (Don’t worry. No kitty was harmed in this introduction.)
Experience with Dogs:
I came from a house with lots of dogs. When introduced to dogs at the shelter, I showed confidence but playfulness and energy. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs. I’ve been playful with most, but I’ve been not very happy about others. In foster care, I’ve been much better with females. (See video with Lucille and pictures with Strada.)
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Peter A. Vega.
History:
Along with other dogs, including Denni and Strada, who already found homes, I was impounded and landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

In my foster home, I have played ball or with toys as much as they have desired, and I have been the goofball in the center. But I have required they build in some sweetness breaks. I need my hugs & kisses, too, you see! What my foster family has observed is my love language of cuddles and skritches! They say I love being petted and want lots of snuggles. My foster parents have never known a dog who wants to cuddle as much as I do. Isn’t that distinction cool? Give me that trophy any day!

More observations in my foster home are I’m always happy, always smiling, always have never-ceasing energy. They believe I’m a good neighborhood barbecue dog. Well, I am a Siberian. So there must be adequate fencing! But what makes me good for neighborhood parties it is believed is the love I will have for all of the people. And my foster parents think I would also enjoy a good game of badminton or volleyball! Life of the party. That would be me, they say!

If my foster parents sit on the floor, I will come straight over and sit on their laps. I mean, wasn’t it an invitation? Even when I do zoomies around the yard at my foster home, I will do 2-3 laps, then run to any human standing by and rub against them, waiting to be pet, then flip over for belly rubs, then resume my zoomie quest, rinse, and repeat.

They say I 100% act like a puppy. I am curious about everything and want to be involved in everything going on, preferably as that center goofball. They also warn I do love getting into trouble. In my foster home, I’ve mastered things like stealing a pen off the table, jumping on all of the furniture, investigating dishes on the kitchen counter, unrolling rolls of toilet paper, stealing sunglasses from an open bag left on the floor and playing Keep Away with them, waking up early in the morning and deciding that everyone else needs to get up, too. See how much money you’ll save on alarm clock electricity? Well, there’s a good reason to adopt me. I’ll save you money!

All that said, let’s talk about my occupation. So my foster parents have learned I will jump into any open car, expecting a ride. Therefore, one could assume perhaps I’m studying to be an Uber driver. There’s just that one pesky detail, that I have to have a driver’s license. Ever try to convince the DMV a dog should take an oral driving exam and pay the fee in Milk Bones?

My coloring is not something you see every day. Here are some Siberians with my same coloring on the husky colors website: https://huskycolors.com/agouti.html
