What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Black & white, blue eyes
Weight:
36 pounds (as of 8/20/2022)
Experience with Children:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with children. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children. I have exhibited the same shyness with them as I have with adults. With time, there has been some improvement.
Experience with Cats:
Pet Harbor does not know my history with cats. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have not yet been introduced to cats. When more information is learned, it will be posted here. Siberian huskies tend to have a strong prey instinct and often show extreme, even fatal, aggression towards cats. Even if Pet Harbor’s evaluation is favorable, it may not translate to all cats under all circumstances.
Experience with Dogs:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I’ve been great with all dogs I have met. In fact, the best home for me will have another dog.
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed or shy dog experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Henry Alfred Miller, Jr.
History:
My sister and I were put in an animal shelter by our “owner,” who said she got us one hour earlier and we were too “terrified” for her to keep.

More About Me: Are you my lullaby person? What is that, you ask? It’s my claim to fame or claim to cuteness, to be more precise. My claim to fame is when I am restless, all it takes is one soft “Time for sleep” from my foster mom in her sweet, lullaby voice, and I immediately start yawning and put my head on my furry arm pillow. Do you think my claim to fame is as adorable as I think it is? While I am shy, I have definitely been coming to my foster mom now that I have been with her a bit. So I’m not as shy as I was at first. I also love to be carried and sitting in laps. Though shy, my tail is always wagging. Another cute thing about me, I clumsily run and fall around the house, entertaining for sure! Oh, and, boy, do I love to talk. Not only when I am ready to start my days but also interacting with other dogs, I am the loudest! I mean, don’t I have to be sure my voice is heard? I sing well, too. Can you keep a secret? I’m practicing for fame! I want my pawprint at Grauman’s! Oh, and did you know Siberians need an occupation? I have one! Don’t tell anyone because I fear they might try to stop me from doing my job. My occupation is that of a flip flop exterminator. And I do it well. Very well. My foster mom has held funerals for six pairs so far. But who is counting?

What am I?
Neutered male Siberian husky
Colors:
Agouti, one brown eye, one parti eye (both blue & brown in the same eye)
Weight:
60 pounds (as of 3/26/22)
Experience with Children:
Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met children up to age 8. I have been great with them, but I am also very strong. So smaller children, seeing my strength, have worried I would knock them over. Bigger children, though, and I have enjoyed playing with toys and balls and running together.
Experience with Cats:
On March 18, 2022, Pet Harbor introduced me to a cat. I went into kill mode. No cat is safe around me. (Don’t worry. No kitty was harmed in this introduction.)
Experience with Dogs:
I came from a house with lots of dogs. When introduced to dogs at the shelter, I showed confidence but playfulness and energy. Since coming to Pet Harbor, I have met multiple dogs. I’ve been playful with most, but I’ve been not very happy about others. In foster care, I’ve been much better with females. (See video with Lucille and pictures with Strada.)
Energy Level:
High
Owner Aptitude Level:
Young Northern breed experience preferred
Named for 9/11 Victim:
I was named for Peter A. Vega.
History:
Along with other dogs, including Denni and Strada, who already found homes, I was impounded and landed in a county shelter. From there, I came to Pet Harbor.

In my foster home, I have played ball or with toys as much as they have desired, and I have been the goofball in the center. But I have required they build in some sweetness breaks. I need my hugs & kisses, too, you see! What my foster family has observed is my love language of cuddles and skritches! They say I love being petted and want lots of snuggles. My foster parents have never known a dog who wants to cuddle as much as I do. Isn’t that distinction cool? Give me that trophy any day!

More observations in my foster home are I’m always happy, always smiling, always have never-ceasing energy. They believe I’m a good neighborhood barbecue dog. Well, I am a Siberian. So there must be adequate fencing! But what makes me good for neighborhood parties it is believed is the love I will have for all of the people. And my foster parents think I would also enjoy a good game of badminton or volleyball! Life of the party. That would be me, they say!

If my foster parents sit on the floor, I will come straight over and sit on their laps. I mean, wasn’t it an invitation? Even when I do zoomies around the yard at my foster home, I will do 2-3 laps, then run to any human standing by and rub against them, waiting to be pet, then flip over for belly rubs, then resume my zoomie quest, rinse, and repeat.

They say I 100% act like a puppy. I am curious about everything and want to be involved in everything going on, preferably as that center goofball. They also warn I do love getting into trouble. In my foster home, I’ve mastered things like stealing a pen off the table, jumping on all of the furniture, investigating dishes on the kitchen counter, unrolling rolls of toilet paper, stealing sunglasses from an open bag left on the floor and playing Keep Away with them, waking up early in the morning and deciding that everyone else needs to get up, too. See how much money you’ll save on alarm clock electricity? Well, there’s a good reason to adopt me. I’ll save you money!

All that said, let’s talk about my occupation. So my foster parents have learned I will jump into any open car, expecting a ride. Therefore, one could assume perhaps I’m studying to be an Uber driver. There’s just that one pesky detail, that I have to have a driver’s license. Ever try to convince the DMV a dog should take an oral driving exam and pay the fee in Milk Bones?

My coloring is not something you see every day. Here are some Siberians with my same coloring on the husky colors website: https://huskycolors.com/agouti.html

Obviously, everything written here is subject to change.

Although Pet Harbor has resumed holding events, we must follow the guidelines established by the venues where our events are held. For example, as of this writing, 3/25/2022, we are required to hold events outdoors at PetsMart. This is continually being reevaluated with event management. Therefore, if weather is forecast to be too hot or too cold or there is precipitation, we will not hold said event. To confirm an event is being held, write info@petharbor.org, check our Facebook page, or call (703) 583-4759.

At times other than events, approved applicants may be able to make other arrangements to meet one dog. Write info@petharbor.org.

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

Our current COVID guidelines are as follows:

~ Applicants may choose an in-person home visit or a virtual home visit using FaceTime, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, Google Meet, Skype, or similar virtual method. Whether masks are required will be decided by the applicants and the volunteer conducting the home visit.
~ If a meeting happens at a time other than an event, the adoption documentation will be completed electronically in advance.
~ Social distancing is not required if the applicants/volunteers have been vaccinated.
~ Masks are at the wearer’s discretion if vaccinated. If wearing a mask, the mask must cover the mouth and nose.
~ If you are sick, please stay home!
~ Hand sanitizer will be available at events.
