Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8 and have been great with them, even giving soft kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On July 27, Pet Harbor introduced me to cats. At first, I didn’t show a great deal of interest, and I licked the kitties, but when kitties moved, I then maintained a focus, tried to jump away from the leash, and barked continuosly. For kitty safety, Pet Harbor would not let me get closer and recommends a home without cats.

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
74 pounds (as of 3/23/21)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages. I have been great with all of them.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor was told smaller animals, including cats and chickens, are not safe around me.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I did great with another male dog in my temperament test at the shelter. When I first came to Pet Harbor, I met three dogs around my size. My interactions with all of them were positive except weeks later, I had an argument with one of the males. What caused it is unknown. I was fine with the other dogs. Then I went to another foster home. I picked out one male there I did not like and bullied him. I was absolutely fine and playful with all the other dogs, male & female alike. Then I got adopted. They have a female dog. Unfortunately, I showed her I am the boss and went after her. I came back to Pet Harbor. Now I’m in a foster home with Zo & Brendan, also available for adoption. We’re all pals, and Brendan isn’t even neutered yet. So I guess we can say I like to pick my own friends. I certainly can live happily with other dogs but not all dogs.

More About Me: I’ll truly keep you laughing. I’m a comical fellow, but I like my naptime snuggles with my people, too. I am a handsome boy, but don’t let that fool you. I am all puppy, all Siberian husky puppy. That means I enjoy getting into trouble, but, like I said, I’m comical. So you won’t mind my mischief-making. My favorite thing to eat is paper towels, but my favorite thing to do is cuddle. See, I can get in trouble one second and make you forget all about the trouble in the next. Ready for loads of fun and love? I adore people. Absolutely adore all people. Most dogs I adore. With some, I feel the need to express my boss status. And, hey, if you like to play fetch, I’m that one Siberian in a million who will fetch and retrieve for HOURS.

Obviously, everything written here is subject to change.

During the pandemic, Pet Harbor stopped holding adoption events. At this time, we have resumed them but must follow the rules put into place by the venues where our events are held. For example, as of this writing, 6/13/2021, we are required to hold events outdoors at PetsMart. So if we expect it to be too hot, we will not be holding an event. If you plan to come to an event, make sure the event is being held. (703) 583-4759 or info@petharbor.org. At times other than events, approved applicants may be able to have meet & greet sessions, but it remains necessary to narrow the choice to one dog and one meeting.

The bottom line is to be respectful of everyone’s feelings about protection against COVID.

~ Applicants have the option of a virtual home visit using FaceTime, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Google Meet, Skype, or similar virtual method or a video home visit, in lieu of an in-person home visit. Whether masks are required will be decided by the applicants and the volunteer conducting the home visit.

~ All adoption documentation is completed electronically at least one day prior to individual meet & greets or completed in person on paper at events.

~ Masks and social distancing are not required if the applicants/volunteers have been vaccinated unless either the applicant(s) or volunteer(s) express a preference for face coverings. If that is the preference, all participants must wear face coverings that cover the mouth and nose.

~ If social distancing is preferred by applicant(s) or volunteer(s), our volunteer(s) conducting meet & greet sessions will hold the dog out on a 6′ leash, and the applicant(s) will hook on their leash, then the volunteer(s) will unhook the volunteer leash so that 6′ distancing can be maintained.

~ If applicants decide to adopt, donations can be made electronically or in cash. Receipts will be emailed.

~ If applicants decide not to adopt, the reverse with leashing happens, documentation is deleted, and everybody goes their own way.

~ For events and meetings, if you are sick, please stay home!

~ Hand sanitizer is available at events.

~ As always, only Pet Harbor volunteers or approved applicants are allowed to walk dogs or hold their leashes. If you would like to volunteer with us, see Volunteering Info.

~ If you have any questions, please email us at info@petharbor.org.

Again, as government and venue rules change, everything written here is subject to change.
