Meet Hugo!

This tiny but mighty dog is so ready to be your best friend! He is 18 pounds of great energy. We think Hugo is a Welsh Corgi mixed with Dachshund, Chihuahua and a bit of French Bulldog. He is a true mutt. He is three years old and was rescued out of The Pasadena Humane Society. He is currently in a dog-savvy foster home with three dogs and three cats.

Hugo has been lucky enough to have training from an experienced behavior trainer with his foster parents. We think the best home for Hugo would have dog experience as we want Hugo to continue his “education.” (He’s learned so much!) Additionally, we think it would be great for his adopter to have a friendly small to medium-sized dog to keep Hugo company.

Hugo is a champ on the leash. He loves, loves, loves to go for walks. He is also crate-trained and housebroken. Hugo also thinks it is a blast to go on car rides. He is a fantastic companion.

Hugo LOVES to play. He loves to engage dogs of all sizes to run around, play bow and tussle with toys. In his foster home, he loves to run around the house and try to get everyone to do zoomies with him. His only tiny flaw is he does not know when some dogs do NOT want to play. So if your dog gets cranky if other dogs try to engage play, Hugo is not the dog for you. Hugo is confident, walks with his tail up and a smile on his face. In his foster home, one of the resident dogs is an older female pit bull. She does not always like Hugo in her face and can get VERY cranky with him. Hugo does not understand this, so they only allow supervised play time with Hugo and their pit bull. But other than that, Hugo is a total love with the other dogs.

Here is a short video of Hugo playing with one of the dogs in his foster home:

And here is another video of Hugo playing with the dogs at our adoption day:

Here is a video of Hugo relaxing with his foster mom (while she watched the NBA Playoffs):

Hugo also went on a vacation to Mammoth with his foster family and their dogs. He was a CHAMP. Hugo is awesome in the car, great on hikes and a lovely guest in the condo they stayed. Here is Hugo on a hike while in Mammoth:

Hugo also likes people. He may bark at strangers when he first meets them. But his foster parents are working with treat training with strangers so he does not bark. He is responding and learning very quickly. Hugo LOVES his foster family and very much loves to be a part of all activities, from working in the year to watching Netflix. Hugo likes to be in the mix and snuggling close.

If you have cats….Hugo will needs some work. His foster home has three cats. Hugo used to chase them. But if the cat stands his/her ground and swats at Hugo, he totally backs down (and even yelps). His foster family is working with Hugo and the chasing of the cats with squirt bottles. Hugo doe NOT like to be squirted with water. Hugo has become a gentleman around the cats in his foster home. But if you have cats, this is something you will need to monitor.

Hugo has also been great around all the kids he has met. But his foster home does not have any kids. They do have children who come over to the house almost every day. Hugo is awesome with them. We think Hugo would do great in a home with kids over the age of 10 who are kind and repsectful of animals.

All in all, Hugo is a great little guy. His foster family adores him. We think you will too.

If you are interested in adopting Hugo please fill out our adoption application by clicking this LINK.

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT OWN A FACILITY. Our animals are in private foster homes.


About The Rescue Train

About Our Rescue Group...

Please visit our website at

Description of the Organization:
The Rescue Train is a place where once forgotten animals become cherished family members. We are a unique, non-profit, 501(c)3, no kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering through hands on rescue work education and awareness.

Mission Statement:
It is our mission to greatly reduce the number of forgotten animals entering city shelters to face euthanasia, by not only hands on rescue work, but by promoting education through creating unique programs and solutions. Including awareness, community involvement and events, responsible pet ownership, support for the Good Samaritan who rescues an animal, dog training, spaying, neutering, adoptions, and support for other rescue groups.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Rescue Train animals are seen by appointment only. We do adoption events several times a month in different locations in the LA area. To see upcoming events please visit the "Special Events" section on the home page of our website

Because we do homechecks and follow up visits we only do local adoptions around the LA area.

Our Adoption Process...

1) View pets on line

2) Submit application for the pet of your choice. FYI: The application process is not meant to be an invasion of privacy but a tool to help us find out if one of our pets would fit happily into your home and lifestyle. We spend a lot of time and funds to get to know our dogs and cats and your application helps set both you and them up for a successful adoption. CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION.

3) Meet the dog or cat: By appointment only. If your application is approved, you will be contacted to arrange to meet the pet at a convenient time. We ask that everyone who will be living with the pet attend the meeting. Also, if you have an existing dog, for a dog we might ask that you bring him/her along for an introduction.

4) Home check: While a home visit is required prior to final placement, it does not guarantee adoption. We like to see where our pets will be living to make sure that they will be in a safe and secure environment. Often we can help with unforeseen health risks and help secure yards and fences that first time owners might miss.

5) Adoption contract: The adoption contract is a binding agreement between the adopter and our rescue group. If, for any reason, the adoption of one of our pets DOES NOT work out, you MUST return the animal to The Rescue Train. We are always here for our animals, no matter what.

6) Tax deductible donation. There is a minimum tax deductible donation of $250.00 per dog and $125 per cat. Each pet is spayed/neutered, vaccinated*, and microchipped. In most cases, we have already spent hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, on vet bills, boarding and training for each pet. The donation helps us recoup a small fraction of that cost. *In the case of puppies and kittens, additional rounds of shots might be required.

Many dogs that come to us need training. We are one of the few groups that obedience train the majority of our rescue dogs. Our intensive training program would cost the average pet owner hundreds of dollars. Part of our $250 adoption agreement, for dogs who require training, is that their adoptive parents have a mandatory free private training session before the dog can go home.

7) Delivery of your new family member: We come with education and helpful hints to help things go smoothly and take the guess work out of what to expect when bringing your new pet home. Each pet has a team of people behind him/her and we are here to be a support system if you should need us.
