Approx. DOB: September 2010
Weight: Approx. 50 lbs.
Coat Color: Black and White
Eye Color: Blue
Energy Level: Medium to High.
Personality: Bridget is a very sweet, playful girl and the epitome of a Siberian. She is always moving and ready to be at your side for some attention and exercise. She will be best suited in a home by herself with a very active lifestyle or with a male sibling to run off some of her energy. Bridget is a rough and tumble kinda girl with a soft side but can hold her ground if challenged. Unfortunately she has proved herself an escape artist and can jump her foster mom's 6 foot privacy fence so she will be adopted out to a home with leash walks only, running and hiking to burn off her energy. She can never be trusted in a fenced in area and certainly not a chain link fence.
Good with Dogs: Yes but will be better matched with male sibling.
Good with Cats: NO. Siberians are notorious for their high prey drive and typically kill cats, rabbits, birds, chickens, squirrels, opossums, etc.
Good with Children: Bridget does fine with kids. Even gets belly rubs from her Foster Mom's neighbor kids. Siberians are typically good with children of all ages and the only reason we would not list them as not good with kids is because they may be too energetic and bouncy and knock over a toddler.
House Trained: Yes
Crate Trained: Yes
Rides Well in Car: Yes
Leash Trained: Bridget is a typical Siberian on leash. She is fine until she sees something of interest and then will dig her back legs into the ground and pull a semi if she were hooked up to it! She does tend to stop and smell the roses on walks as there are too many good smells to just pass by. Then she's off and running again.
Basic Obedience: Bridget does know sit and is working on other basic commands.

Southern Siberian Rescue is based out of Raleigh, NC and serve SE states only (NC, SC, VA, WV, KY, GA, TN) due to our required home check that is part of our review process. We will try to serve other areas, only if there is no comparable Siberian Rescue or Siberian in your area. If we have a volunteer in your area that can do a home check for us, we will ask that you be prepared to drive to Raleigh, NC to meet the foster dog of interest. You will need to bring all of you existing pets and immediate family members to meet our dogs. We need to know that it is a good match for all involved. For local adopters, we will bring the foster dog(s) of interest to you at the home check.
SSR can not and will not hold dogs for anyone. We can’t. If we do, that means another Siberian will die in a shelter because a shelter dogs time is very limited, as is our foster space. We do our best to process applications in the order received and first application gets first interest in our foster dog(s). We understand that there will be scheduling conflicts with home checks and meet and greets with our foster homes and foster dogs and we will accommodate for that if a potential adopter has interest in a particular foster dog in our program.
