What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Grey & white, blue eyes
Weight:
49 pounds (as of 4/17/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. Since coming to Pet Harbor, so far, I have only briefly met one child, a 5yo child. I happily wagged my tail when he approached me. When more information is known, it will be posted here. I do mouth, which means I play using my mouth on you. Even though I don’t mean to hurt you, mouthing, especially on young and old skin, can really hurt. Training is needed! I also am a talkative Siberian. My noises may sound like growling to the inexperienced. So, though they have nothing to fear, children may be afraid.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. Pet Harbor has not yet performed a test for cat-friendliness. When more information is known, it will be posted here.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. In my shelter dog-dog test, I interacted with two male dogs with only positive results. In further dog-dog tests, I interacted with other dogs, my size and small dogs, in a positive fashion. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. When more information is learned, it will be posted here.

Weight:
53 pounds (as of 5/3/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. I am brand new to Pet Harbor. When more information is known, it will be posted here. I do mouth, which means I play using my mouth on people. Even though I don’t mean to hurt, mouthing, especially on younger and older skin, can really hurt. Training is needed!
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats, but because I show too much interest in kitties, indicating I could potentially be a danger to them, Pet Harbor will not let me live with cats.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. In my dog-dog tests, I was excited and attempted to entice play. My interactions with other dogs in my foster home have been great. I’m in my element with other dogs. They’re all my buddies, including smaller dogs. In fact, the best home for me will have another dog to be my playmate.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for FDNY's Lt. John F. Ginley.
History:
Because I ate a few things (like articles of clothing) I shouldn’t eat, I needed surgery to remove them from my innards. Because I needed surgery, my humans surrendered me. So I ended up in an animal shelter. From there, I was adopted to people who didn’t understand my breed. After 10 days, they returned me to the shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:

More About Me: A cheap date. No fancy French restaurant for me. I’ll eat your socks, underwear, dental floss, whatever you have lying around. Certainly it will be an expensive lesson for you after the date, but at least I will have tidied up your home! I’m all puppy. And just like all babies, that means everything in the mouth. So you need to be ready for all that puppyhood entails to adopt me! For example, one of Pet Harbor’s adoptees just today, got into an ink cartridge, yes, that means ink everywhere. He’s a year old. Imagine what he did at my age. I’m loads of fun, but my adopters must appreciate all that means. Training would be a great idea for me! Since I love playing with other dogs and they will keep me distracted so I don’t eat your unmentionables, I need a home with a canine playmate. So are you ready for laughter, fun, and the good & bad of toddlerhood?

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, brown eyes
Weight:
62 pounds (as of 5/2/19)
Experience with Children:
Because I was running at large, Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. However, since coming to Pet Harbor, I have shown I love all people. Children adore me. It’s mutual. They can hug me all day long. Taller people get hugs from me, standing on my hind legs.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 5/8/19, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. During the test, I showed no interest in the cats. A cat ran during the test. I ignored the kitty. When a kitty was standing next to me at the door at the top of the stairs, I looked at the kitty while wagging my tail, but I made no further movement.
Experience with Dogs:
I was running at large with a German Shepherd Dog. Other than that, nothing is known about my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have interacted with dogs around my size. I have had no negative interactions with them. When I first got to Pet Harbor, they decided I was a people’s dog, not a dog’s dog. Now that I have been here a few days, I have shown I am both. I want to spend time with people, but when I can’t, I am in the center of play with the other dogs.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Atsushi Shiratori.
History:
For the crime of running at large, I found myself in a rural animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 5/4/19 – Just some exploring!

More About Me: Think of the sweetest thing you can. Think of the most obedient dog you can. Think of the most loving person in the world. Wrap all of that up in one package, and you’ve got Shira. I know commands, and I listen to them. I don’t have a favorite person. I make the rounds. Each person in the room gets to experience my love. I leave no person unturned. One mission. I have one mission. And that is to give all the love I can to everyone I can. When I’m not cuddling with someone, I enjoy playing with other dogs. Besides all of that, I’m a really good girl as well. I’m pretty much what you’d call a plug-and-play gal.

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, brown eyes
Weight:
38 pounds (as of 4/27/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve met various children of elementary age and younger. I adore the children I live with in my foster home, and they adore me. They even locked me with them in the bedroom and locked out their mother!
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 5/8/19, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. I tried to eat the kitty. Don’t worry. No kitty was harmed during this testing.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests. When I first came to my foster home, I bared teeth to show the other dogs I was the boss, but I did not react negatively any further than that and that only lasted a day. After that, it was all good. When other dogs ignore me, I run after them, trying to figure out why they ignored me! Oddly, I seem to follow female dogs more than males. All the dogs I have met in foster care and testing are my size or bigger. Pet Harbor has no information about how I am with small dogs.

Named for 9/11 Victim:

History:
For the crime of running at large, I found myself in the animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 4/21/19 – My temperament test, resource guarding
  2. 4/21/19 – My temperament test, toys
  3. 4/21/19 – My temperament test, food bowl (those pesky humans…)
  4. 5/4/19 – Pet me, please!

More About Me: Sweetness. My goal in life is to be petted by everyone. I will walk from person to person to get that petting! And if I’m afraid you’ll leave, I’ll just sit on your feet so you are planted for petting! When I first got to Pet Harbor, I was quiet and easy. Of course, we all know that’s subject to change since, like people, dogs change! So guess what. It didn’t take long for me to become peppy & playful. The sweetness is still there. That’s my core. I am full of love, and I love to give kisses, kisses, and more kisses. So how about it? Have you got a house full of people who would love to be kissed by me?

Info to come
Experience with Children:
I’m a puppy. Great with everything, subject to change as I get older. However, little children aren’t really happy with my puppy teeth, nails, exuberance, and plowing into them. They are, after all, just my size.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not place puppies to live with cats because Siberian Huskies commonly are not cat-friendly as they age. In homes with cats, Pet Harbor only places adult Siberian Huskies who have tested cat-friendly.
Experience with Dogs:
I’m a puppy. Great with everything, subject to change as I get older. Older dogs often are not thrilled with my puppiness. They definitely wear out before I do! If you have another dog who will tolerate me, that’s terrific because I love, love, love to play.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Luke A. Dudek.
History:
Because they said I chew my tail, I was dumped in a county animal shelter. The shelter called Pet Harbor. Since coming to foster care, Pet Harbor has not seen me chew my tail. They’ve seen me chew about everything else except my tail. I am, after all, a puppy, a normal puppy.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 
More About Me: Of course, I am like all the rest of the puppies in the universe. Cute. Cuddly. Love unlimited. Untrained. Full of sharp teeth and nails. Lots of pottying everywhere. Mischievous. Sleepy. Playful. Not a care in the world. Clay to mold. Entertaining. But guess what. Puppies do grow up! Pet Harbor has very strict policies with regard to puppy adoptions to ensure that we have forever homes. If you have applied to adopt from Pet Harbor and gotten approved, that does not mean you are approved to adopt me. You will need to talk to the folks at Pet Harbor about that.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
64 pounds (as of 3/9/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with children up to age 4 before coming to Pet Harbor and that I was playful with them. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met lots of children of all ages. I shower them with kisses.  Due to my energy level, I can knock down little children, but after I knock them down, I will shower them with kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told I have never met a cat. On 12/8, Pet Harbor tested me for cat-friendliness. With hackles up, I barked & lunged at the cats. For kitty safety, I cannot live with them.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with another dog before coming to Pet Harbor. In my dog-dog tests, I was uber excited and attempted to entice play. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have been very playful with the other dogs in foster care. They are all my size.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Maxima Jean-Pierre.
History:
My owners put me in an animal shelter because I “frequently escaped.” From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 12/8/18 – Jolly young Maxim & old St. Nick.
  2. 12/8/18 – Let’s dance!
  3. 12/8/18 – Birds of a Feather.
 

More About Me: I’m all about that play, ’bout that play, ’bout that play, no trouble. Well, I’m a young Siberian. So trouble kind of comes with the territory. Full of humor, love, and without trepidation or slowing mechanisms, I am always at the ready to shower people with kisses. In fact, like all good Siberians, I have a job. My job title is Johnny Appleseed. Instead of spreading seeds so new apple trees can grow, I spread kisses and love everywhere so happiness and joy will grow. Siberians generally stay in puppy stage until about age 3. Yep, I’m well within that puppy stage. So if you are ready for loads of laughter, slurpy kisses, and maybe have a canine playmate for me, let’s go home!

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Red & white, blue eyes
Weight:
40 pounds (as of 10/19/18)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor was told I lived with children under age 7 and was fine with them. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 5. My interactions with them have been positive.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 11/4/18, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. Until the cat moved, I ignored him. When he moved, I did focus on him, but I did not attempt to chase. Further testing is needed before Pet Harbor will make an assessment.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests, wagging & play bowing to play. One of the dogs in my foster home does not like me, but I am fine with all the dogs. In fact, Jenkins, also available for adoption, is my BFF. We play a lot.

Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Jennifer Tzemis.
History:
Supposedly my humans got me from a breeder. Two years later, they put me in an animal shelter, saying they had “no time” for me.
Movies:
Coming soon!

 
More About Me: I don’t understand why my humans thought they should put me in a shelter and felt they didn’t have time for me. I really don’t mean to be a bother. I try not to take up a lot of people’s time. I just want to have people and a home. Is that too much to ask? Please make sure when you have children, fur or otherwise, it is a forever relationship. We aren’t throw-aways. We are living, breathing creatures with hearts and lots of love to give. I’m a well-mannered boy. I will sit by you and push into you. Snuggling & cuddling are my favorite pastimes.

More About Me: There is one place & one place only that I want to be. And that is with people. I adore people so very much! Wherever you are, that is where I want to be. And if I’m not with my people, I will speak what is on my mind in protest. I’m just about as sweet, as comical, and as happy as I can be. I know a few commands, and you will enjoy watching me show off my knowledge. I will keep you laughing, and you will want to squeeze me all the time. I really am enjoying this thing called life & truly have no idea I am homeless. Are you my people with whom I want to spend all of my time? If so, couldn’t we go home now, please?
