What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
53 pounds (as of 5/3/19)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve met children of various ages.  I enjoy them, and they enjoy me.  I like to play, and so do they.  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. On 6/3/19, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. I showed lots of interest in the kitties & barked incessantly at them, confirming the decision that I cannot live with them.
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, even smaller dogs. I enjoy nonstop playtime with them.  In fact, the best home for me will have another dog to be my playmate.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience required
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:
  1. 5/4/19 – My human and little dog friends!
  2. 5/11/19 – Exploring new surroundings
  3. 5/11/19 – Will sit ever so gently for treats!

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 also am amorous.  So maybe a French restaurant is a good thing!  I will jump in your lap & shower you with kisses.  Even though I do know some commands and am a pretty good boy, I’m all puppy. And just like all babies, that means everything in the mouth. So to adopt me, you must be ready for all that puppyhood entails! For example, one of Pet Harbor’s alumni got into an ink cartridge.  Yes, that means ink everywhere. He’s a year old. 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, infinite love & playfulness, and the good & bad of toddlerhood?

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. However, now that I have been in my foster home a while, things have changed again. Now I seem to be bossy to other dogs, particularly females, even those I meet at PetsMart. 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 smaller dogs.
Energy Level:
Medium-High
Owner Aptitude Level:

Named for 9/11 Victim:

  2. 4/21/19 – My temperament test, toys

  5. 6/8/19 – Hi, hooman!
  6. 6/8/19 – I’m the pup of the week!
  7. 8/17/19 – Fake Left!

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?

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.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
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. Funny thing about me – I am so intensely focused on getting affection from humans & giving it back to them, I forget to be a Siberian. I ran out a door in my foster home & started sniffing around. Then my foster sister called my name. Oh, boy! Someone to show & get love. I forgot to run away. I ran right into her arms, jumped up, gave her kisses, and let her grab my collar. Good thing I love love! Another funny thing about me – I adore – ADORE – puppies. I am absolutely enthralled with Ezra & Dano, also available for adoption. But the funny part is when I meet small dogs at PetsMart, I seem to have a fixation on them that concerns the volunteers. See how funny I can be?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!

More About Me: Pillows, please. Human pillows, that is. Pretty, please? I really don’t ask for much, just a human or two (or more!) to let me curl up on them. Like all good Southern belles, I’ll be very sweet and polite about it. That is, of course, when I am not playing or just in deep meditative thought that may or may not resemble sleep. I’ve been nicknamed the Peace and Love Guru. Children of all shapes and noise volumes are welcome! Dogs, too, but other cats and kids are my preference if you ask me.
