Age:

Birthday:

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
52 pounds (as of 10/19/18)
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 play with them & kiss them. I am a rambunctious puppy. So I will knock down little children, but after I knock them down, I shower them with kisses.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 11/4/18, Pet Harbor performed a test for cat-friendliness. The result is the cats were more afraid of me & my energy level than I was of them. I was more interested in their canned cat food than them. On 11/23/18, Pet Harbor repeated testing. The cat smacked me and then ran. I did not react. My third cat test was similar, but then I went to a home with two kitties and after a few days, I became too focused on one of the kitties, to the point where the kitty’s humans became afraid. So Pet Harbor has decided in order to keep everyone safe, they will place me in a home without kitties.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I passed my dog-dog tests with female & male dogs. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met male & female dogs. I am a puppy, and have played with them all. Zemis was my BFF, and we loved to play a lot! He got adopted. So now I play with several dogs at once.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Joseph Jenkins, Jr.
History:
My former owners bought me from an Amish breeder. Nine months later, they put me in an animal shelter, indicating they do not have the “time or resources needed to care for” me. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.
Movies:
  1. 11/3/18 – Scavenger
  2. 9/16/18 – A little kindergarten rough-housing!
  3. 9/16/18 – Running and exploring the yard.

More About Me: I am a puppy, all puppy, with all that entails. Puppies and children are not born knowing how to behave. They must be taught. Though we’re lots of fun, we also need training. I’m uber friendly and playful, ready to be putty in your hands. If you know Siberians, you know me. All those traits that describe a Siberian describe me. Siberians are friendly and loving. Yep, that’s me. I’m a total sweetheart. Happy as can be. Yep, that’s me. Sing the song of my people? Yep, I do. I’m not quiet. Well, I’m not quiet when my human(s) leave me alone. I have quite a lot to say in protest. If you know & love Siberians, you will know that song is melodious & enjoy it, but if you live in an apartment or in close quarters, your neighbors may not. Some Siberians are good apartment dogs. I’m not one of them. I’m much happier when my people are home where they can pet me or fix me food or let me kiss them. Fun-loving & full of puppy mischief. Yep. That’s me! So the bottom line is if you are a Siberian person, I’m the perfect dog for you!

What am I?
Spayed female Siberian Husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
44 pounds (as of 10/16/18)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children of all ages. My interactions with them have all been very positive.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. On 7/23/18, Pet Harbor performed an evaluation for cat-friendliness.  That day, I showed no interest in the kitties whatsoever.  I did want to eat the cat food, but I didn’t try to eat the cats.  I do, like most Siberians, have a high prey drive with small furry things that are outside.  Bunnies & squirrels, for example, are not safe around me.
Experience with Dogs:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with dogs. I showed no aggression during my dog-friendliness evaluations. When I first got to Pet Harbor, I felt I had to let other dogs know I am the Queen Bee. As time passed, I learned to not only coexist with other dogs but to love them. I even enjoy small dogs!
Energy Level:
Medium-High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:

History:
For the crime of running at large, I landed in an animal shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor Rescue.

  2. 9/15/18 – Love Magnet
  3. 7/29/18 – Will work for belly rubs!

More About Me: Adoration.  I adore my people.  If that means jumping a 6′ fence to be with them, then that’s what I’ll do.  A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.  I’m a sweetheart, a lover, a doll.  Make love, not war.  That’s my motto.  I just wanna snuggle and cuddle and be petted & kiss you and then repeat that whole cycle over & over again.  There is more to me than just love.  I am also comical.  So maybe you can call me a silly sweetie.  You know how a Siberian jumping on a trampoline is? I do that same jump from a standing position. See? Comical.  My mission in life is to make you happy.  Lest you think I’m a giving soul, my real reward is I am loved.  Are you looking for a silly sweetie who is also stunningly gorgeous?

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.
