Available Dogs

It’s very important that if you’re interested in any of these pups, you make sure you have researched just what a Siberian Husky is. They’ve all lost at least one home already. So the next one must be their last! Just as you would with children, you must be willing to work through whatever issues come up. Please only apply to adopt if you are prepared to do just that. If you are ready, that’s fantastic!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
61 pounds (as of 10/25/16)
Experience with Children:
I lived with small children for the past several years, and I am living with small children in my foster home. I have had only positive interactions with them. In fact, I like to follow the toddler like Mary’s little lamb.
Experience with Cats:
True to my breed, I have a high prey drive for cats and small critters, like squirrels. I cannot live with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
I have lived with a male Siberian Husky all of my life. I have frequented dog parks. I share a foster home with male and female Siberian Huskies. I have had only positive interactions with all of them, though right now I’m confused about being uprooted and don’t really want to play much yet.
Energy Level:
Medium
Owner Aptitude Level:
Novice
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Leah E. Oliver.
History:
I lost my first home when I was less than a year old. My human at that time loved me and took good care of me but then became homeless and felt he had to turn us (Broderick, adopted; and me) into a dog pound. Then Pet Harbor found me a wonderful home. That was my family for almost seven years. They loved me very much. Unfortunately, the pediatrician advised my family to give up the dogs. So I came back to Pet Harbor.
Movies:

  1. 2010. Back in 2010, watch me play with Broderick in Toys Galore!

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: MY 2017 BIO: Sugar. Think sugar. If you go sugar-free, then think sweetener. That is all you need to describe me, just one word. I’m a little confused right now because I have been uprooted from my family I loved, but they took such wonderful care of me I have to miss them. If you adopt me, you will benefit from the care they gave me. They named me Chiqui. That is the name I know. Pet Harbor originally named me after a 9/11 victim. So that is why my bio says Leah. My name is Chiqui, even though the toddler in my foster home insists I am “not a chicken.” It’s like I’ve been to charm school. I’m well-mannered. My favorite thing to do is follow babies and toddlers around. Truth be told, I’m really waiting for food they will drop. I am the quietest Siberian Husky you will ever meet. Seriously, I am a lady with all the wonderful attributes that entails. Lest you think I have no faults, want to hear about my prey drive or how I will dig out of a yard if my people aren’t around? See, just when you thought I was really not a Siberian Husky, I proved you wrong! Truthfully, I’m the most plug-and-play Siberian you will ever meet. The children in my foster home adore me. Those two sentences sum me up!

MY 2010 BIO: If you would be so kind as to allow me to say it, please? What is it, you ask? Why, that I am the cutest dog in the world. Don’t you agree? I am a lady. I am dainty and gentle and give gentle kisses and curtsy. Okay. Maybe I exaggerate just a bit, too. I also am all puppy and will run and jump and play, play, play like all normal high-energy Siberian Husky puppies. Ready for all that entails?

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
69 pounds (as of 2/25/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with multiple children ages 0 to 18, and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
On 3/12/17, I was cat-tested. I rushed the cats and bit a kitty’s foot. No, no cat was harmed in the test, but I am unable to live safely with cats. Before coming to rescue, I was tested with a shelter cat described as “fearless” and “spunky.” I was not reactive.
Experience with Dogs:
Before coming to Pet Harbor, I lived with Rhodes, who already found his forever home. We had no issues. At Pet Harbor, I have met dogs similar in size to me. I get along with them all. However, at events, I act like that other name for female dogs that starts with a b towards other dogs, snappy/growly, what my foster mom says is typical female Siberian Husky behavior. I was adopted with Taro and was bossy to Taro. So I came back to Pet Harbor. I am in a foster home with another dog (Sebastian,
also available for adoption) without issues.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Manuel Dejesus Molina.
History:
My humans were elderly and found they just could no longer take care of me. My human dad put Rhodes, who already found his forever home, and me into a shelter. While doing so, he sobbed because it broke his heart to lose us. You will see my parents took great care of us. We’re happy, well-fed babies with awesome personalities.
Movies:
  1. I am Molina. I will melt in your hands!
  2. Just a cameo
  3. Always the center of attention

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: All I really want is someone to snuggle with me. Are you my snuggler? Just give me a few ear, tummy, or back scratches, and I’ll be putty in your paws. Toss me a few treats, and you’ve got an idolizer! Really, I’m sweet and not rambunctious. I have no clue why anyone would want to look further than me. Besides that, I’m super beautiful. Don’t you agree? Happy, too. Always happy. My only negative is I cannot be contained alone in a crate, but I’ll bet you feel the same and don’t want to be in crates either. Right? My favorite pastime besides snuggling is chasing ducks. Really, I love snuggling and want to do that 24 hours a day. Don’t you love that, too?

Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:

Weight:
55 pounds (as of 4/18/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with children ages 0-3 so far and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was informed my history is that I am cat-friendly. Pet Harbor cat-tested me on 5/5/17. I met three cats and just looked at them. I showed no interest, positive or negative, and was easily distracted.

My history with dogs is unknown. I was tested with a smaller dog and just wanted to play. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs around my size and have had no issues with any of them.
Energy Level:

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Anthony M. Starita.
History:
Because of my escape abilities, I was a repeat offender at an animal shelter. I have, unfortunately, been passed from home to home for the very same reason. This time no one claimed me. It is time for me to have my forever home.
Movies:
  1. See? I told you I have a lot to say.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: First and foremost, I have a lot to say. Just when you think I’m as quiet as a churchmouse, you’ll hear my melodious voice come out of what seems like nowhere. Secondly, don’t expect me to be serious. I’m all about fun and play. Thirdly, I give tiny, gentle kisses. Yeah, I’m super sweet, but I might quickly jump into play because I can’t possibly let you think I am at all mushy. I am not a dog you can leave in the backyard or in a 4′ fence, but if you are looking for some fun, some pep in your step, I’m the gal for you. Plus, I can live with children, cats, dogs, whoever. Does it get better than this?

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
56 pounds (as of 3/22/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with multiple children ages 0 to 18, and have displayed only positive reactions to them.
Experience with Cats:
My history with cats is unknown. I quickly failed Pet Harbor’s cat test. I focused intently on the cats and tried incessantly to get to them, not in a good way. For example, hear what I do when I see a cat on the other side of the door.
Experience with Dogs:
My history with dogs is unknown. I passed the initial dog test without issue. In foster care, I have mostly ignored other dogs because my desire is to spend 100% of my time with humans. However, I have expressed dislike of dominant male dogs. With the females and non-dominant males, though, I have had only positive interactions. All the dogs in foster care are 40 pounds and up.
Energy Level:

Owner Aptitude Level:

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Sebastian Gorki.
History:
I landed myself in a rural shelter because I killed a goat. Instead of paying my bail, my owner chose to sign me over to the shelter. I was hungry. Isn’t there a legitimate Meals on Hooves program?
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: My foster mom can’t understand why my former humans abandoned me. After all, is it my fault I escaped? Perhaps had I been neutered, I might not have escaped. Perhaps had goats not lived down the road, I might not have escaped. Perhaps if I were not a Siberian Husky, I might not have escaped. Really, my foster mom doesn’t understand. She says I must have been left outside and tried to get inside because all I want to do is curl up next to my humans. I want to play with them, be with them, let them pet me, give them kisses. The only time I even want to be outside is when that is where my humans are. My foster mom says I’m just about the sweetest dog in the world. If you are lucky enough to become my humans, there is no way you will ever feel unloved.

Experience with Children:
My history is unknown to Pet Harbor. Since I just got to Pet Harbor, I haven’t met children yet, but as soon as I have, this information will be updated.
Experience with Cats:
Along with Roma, also available for adoption, I landed in an animal shelter having been accused of killing a cat. So I cannot live with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
My history is unknown to Pet Harbor. However, I was running at large with Roma. Not only do we get along great, but we are pretty bonded to one another. She is the leader, and I am her follower. Given that I am a follower and am also somewhat timid, the best home for me would have a leader dog. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs my size, male and female, and have had no issues. Besides Roma, I have a favorite Siberian playmate. See, there is this one red and white boy Siberian in my foster home who has become the object of my flirtation.
Energy Level:

Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed and/or shy dog experience required
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Richard Allen Pearlman.
History:
For the crime of running at large, Roma, also available for adoption, and I landed in a county animal shelter. It is alleged we killed a cat. From there, we came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Three important things to know about me: 1) I am a follower. 2) I am bonded to Roma, who is likely my littermate, and follow her everywhere. So Pet Harbor will give preference to adopters who will adopt both of us if such adopters appear! 3) My favorite thing in the world is tummy scratches. Oh, I could go belly up all day and all night if you would scratch my tummy. Putty. Putty in your hands. If I think you are going to give me belly rubs, my body slinks down as if I am boneless. On another note, I am truly a Siberian and all the stubbornness that entails. I also have a touch of shyness, but just enough to be endearing. If I decide I don’t want to go somewhere, then I will put on the brakes and become dead weight, all the while giving you soft kisses. You will find it difficult to be angry at me. That is for sure.

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Two important things to know about me: 1) I am a leader. 2) I am bonded to Pearl, who is likely my littermate, and feel lost without her following me. So Pet Harbor will give preference to applicants who will adopt both of us if such applicants appear! I’m as much fun as a barrel of monkeys. One Siberian is better than monkeys in a barrel any day! Watch your pinky because I will wrap around it pretty quickly. I’ll get into mischief and show you my baby blue and brown eyes and pearly whites and you will forget whatever it was I did. Girls just wanna have fun. On another note, I am truly a female Siberian and will rule the roost. I will play with other dogs to my heart’s content and lead them. Every group needs a leader, right? Oh, did I mention that while I’m giving you kisses, I’m also plotting my next caper? I’m no dummy! There is a method to my madness.

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
48 pounds (as of 4/20/17)
Experience with Children:
My history with children is unknown. I have had only positive interactions with children in my foster home (ages 0-3), but I am a young, energetic Siberian. So I will run laps over, under, and around young ones.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was informed my history is that I am not good with cats. Pet Harbor tested me for cat-friendliness, and I failed the test. Therefore, Pet Harbor will not place me in a home where cats live.
Experience with Dogs:
Jamey, also available for adoption from Pet Harbor Rescue, is my sister. Since coming to Pet Harbor, all of my interactions with the dogs I have met have been positive. All the dogs I have met are my size and larger.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Brian L. Jones.
History:
My sister Jamey and I were running at large. We ended up in a county animal shelter. This was not the first time. Our “owners” were notified and chose not to pay our bail this time. From there, we came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. Born to Run!
  2. With my sister Jamey, there are cuddles all around!

Dream Home Minimum Requirements: Am I not the most beautiful Siberian you have ever seen? Well, I think I am! I am sweet and quiet. I love to love and to be loved, I am kind and polite, but I am also a Siberian Husky pup. So that means I have tons of energy and get into pretty much anything and everything. The good news is I am not a drama queen, like my sister Jamey is. You, therefore, should not pay attention to anything she has to say. But, I must say that Jamey and I are a bonded pair, and we would be so happy to go to our forever home together. My new family will need to understand I am all puppy, meaning I have need for training, I am not calm, I am as cute as I can be, I will wear you out, and you won’t know whether to laugh or cry at my antics. So if you are ready for a Siberian puppy and ALL that entails, perhaps you are ready for me! And hopefully my sister Jamey, too!

But, I must say that Bri and I are a bonded pair, and we would be so happy to go to our forever home together. Even though I know she calls me a drama queen, too. I prefer to say that I do everything with gusto. I am the utmost. If you have a kiss for me and you are tall, well, I will just jump up to get it. If there is something I want, I will get it. I also will join conversations to let you know what I have to say. See? Gusto. I have tons of love in me and really enjoy cuddles and kisses, but I also am a Siberian Husky pup.
