What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
50 pounds (as of 4/6/21)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met one child. I gave kisses & rubbed my head against the child. I like to jump up on adults for pets. I didn’t do that with the child.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know history prior to my being in a shelter. At the shelter, I was introduced to cats. They didn’t capture my attention until one hissed at me. That captured my focus, but I quickly became bored. In my foster home, however, initially, I tried to grab the kitty by the neck. My foster mom finds it difficult to break my focus from kitties. So the best home for me is feline-free.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history prior to being in the shelter. At the shelter, I did well during my dog-dog evaluation. I share my foster home with a male & a female Siberian. I play with them incessantly and enjoy sleeping close to one of them. However, around small dogs, I react similarly to the way I react to cats. Since I have shown signs of stress being left alone while crated, if my adoptive family leaves me alone for long periods, having a 2nd dog in my home is a plus or I can be left uncrated. So far uncrated, I’ve shown no issues.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Irina Buslo.
History:
Running at large, I landed in an animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.
Movies:
  1. 3/20/2021 – I’m so vocal
  2. 3/14/2021 – Making new friends
  3. 3/4/2021 – Serenaaaaade!
  4. 3/2/2021 – Pet me, please!

More About Me: At some point, I had humans who cared about me because I know more than I’d know if I didn’t. Who they were remains a mystery. I’m a silky soft cuddler. I’m a dreamboat. My foster mom is working on getting some weight on my bones. I’m sort of un-Siberian-like in that I’m pretty obedient and an easy keeper. Check out my videos to see a little more about me.

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian husky
Colors:
Grey & white, bi-eyed (one blue eye, one brown eye)
Weight:
43 pounds (as of 1/26/21)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told children lived in my prior home, but I was chained. So how much interaction I actually had with them is unknown. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have only met one toddler. I obeyed when told to sit. I was calm, sniffed the child, then licked her once. I sat patiently for a few minutes until the toddler came in to pet me & get a kiss. Please understand, though, I am a full-speed dog. I could barrel through small objects, including animals and humans. I’ve even been known to knock over adults when I’m in a case of the zoomies.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told when I met a kitty prior to coming to Pet Harbor, at first, I ignored kitty, but after I got more comfortable with my environment, I had to be separated from the kitty for the kitty’s safety. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been separated from the kitty in my foster home after an initial meet. My energy level and social awkwardness could be dangerous for kitty. I do whine and try to get to kitties when I see them.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told my history is I am fine with other dogs but socially awkward, having never learned how properly to play with others. I can be too much for some dogs. In my first foster home since coming to Pet Harbor, I exhibited typical female Siberian husky behavior in that I was not very nice to my female Siberian foster sibling, even when she was ignoring me, but I played & played & played with my male Siberian foster sibling. So Pet Harbor moved me to a new foster home. Since coming to that foster home, I have met all sorts of dogs, male and female, and have played and played with all of them without any issues, even small and young ones. I love to roughhouse with other dogs.

Named for 9/11 Victim:

History:
I lived attached to a chain. I was saved by Dogs Deserve Better Blue Ridge. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.

More About Me: First important thing for you to know – my home should have a Volkswagen van for camping because that’s what I love to do. You don’t have a VW van? Want to buy one for me? How about any kind of camping gear? No? What about a tent in the backyard? Not even that? Can we at least roast marshmallows in the yard? No marshmallows? What’s a girl to do? Fine. If I must, I’ll settle for being with my pack wherever we are, but I really do love to go camping. I do want to be with my pack. When any pack member leaves, I cry and whine. When all of my pack members leave, I show them I mean business by killing crates. My pack is smarter than I am. They found an unkillable crate. Finally, you should know I am quite smart and quite trainable. Training is pretty easy, too, since I surely am motivated by what goes in my tummy. Now that I’ve talked full circle from marshmallows to marshmallows, let’s talk adoption! Did you get that van?

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of various ages. When some Siberians play, they make noises that sound mean but aren’t. I’m one of those Siberians. Younger children can be afraid of those noises. I wish they weren’t afraid since I want to cuddle with them.

Weight:

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I was great with the children in the shelter foster home. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 14. I have been great with them except I’m a puppy. So when they leave something inviting in my path, I feel obligated to re-sculpt. 🙂
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told I had to leave the shelter foster home because, like most Siberians, I showed an abundance of interest in kitties. Thankfully, while I was there, no kitty was harmed. Pet Harbor will not place me in a home with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve met other dogs and have been great with them.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Charles H. Karczewsk.

Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 7. I have been great with them and give them gentle kisses. And they adore me. They say I’m loads of fun.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several kitties. I have been as playful with them as I am with dogs. Then on 12/21, I met 2 5-mo-old kittens. I was very focused on them and tried to bite both of them. Then I saw an older cat. The cat swatted me eight times. I did not react. On 12/22, I again met the kittens and again tried to bite. Then I again saw the bigger, lazier kitty. I again did not react.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told I am fine with other dogs. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs, all bigger than I am. I have been playful with all of them. I try to play with everyone – dogs, cats, children, grownups. 12/30/2020, I met a Chihuahua. I was curious and friendly with him. I was easily distracted, but I did think he was a cute little thing. When he snarled at me, I backed away, though.

More About Me: Some things you should understand about me – because of my background, new people and environments make me nervous. I try to get away. If I’m on a leash, I will pull you. And let me tell you I am super strong. On the flip side, I absolutely am super sweet and totally adore children. Also, I weighed 45 pounds on 12/11/2020. Either the scales weren’t accurate or I wouldn’t stand still because I am closer to the 60 pounds I weighed on 11/23.

Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 7. I have been great with them and give them kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told I have never met cats. On 12/12/2020, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. I was curious, but once I got a few sniffs, I was easily distracted. A dog walked into the room. My focus left the cats and went straight to the dog, enticing her to play. While Pet Harbor would still exercise caution, they believe I probably can live safely with kitties. On 12/30/2020, Pet Harbor introduced me again to cats. I spent a lot of time sniffing them. When one of them growled and then lunged at me, I cowered. But then he ran. I gave chase. When he got out of the range of my leash, I went to another kitty and sniffed some more.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told the only dogs I’ve known are Jacob (also available for adoption) and Jagoda (who found his home already) and that I’m great with them. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met several dogs, all around my size. All interactions are positive. 12/30/2020, I met a Chihuahua. I was curious and friendly with him. I was more interested in making sure all the people petted me, but I did also try to get the Chihuahua to play. When he snarled at me, I backed away.
