Hugo was found in a parking lot and never claimed by his owners, so he became a member of the Rescued Tails family. Hugo is a very friendly guy who absolutely loves playing with his toys. He knows a few commands and takes his treats very gently. 

Hugo is participating in our Rush to Rescue program, so he is currently being fostered by a pair of offenders at the Rush City Correctional Facility. While there, he will be attending a training program with a certified trainer and will be working on his commands with his handlers.
Update from Hugo's handlers: Meet Hugo, the big, friendly dog. Hugo is a young dog that loves to play. He enjoys playing with, chasing and chewing on tennis balls. He also enjoys stuffed toys, but he will quickly destroy them. Hugo is housetrained and he lets you know when he needs to go to the bathroom by pacing and sitting at the door. He's a great dog with a great attitude, but would do best as an only dog. He wants to see everything. He's a leaner and loves attention. He is working on crate-training, and at night he often sleeps in his kennel on his own. Hugo is food-motivated with softer, yummy treats. He knows "sit" and "shake" and is working on his other commands. Overall, Hugo is a big, friendly dog. He is clumsy and happy, with a sad-looking face. He doesn't drool unless he is drinking water, then all bets are off. Be prepared to have a buddy by your side!

About Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Rescued Tails is a small group of volunteers who believes that every life is valuable, and that every healthy or treatable animal is worth saving. We have an affinity for those animals whose chances of being rescued from impounds or kill-shelters are minimized due to breed, age, temperament and/or color. We provide training or seek medical treatment when applicable to ensure that every one of our animals gets a chance at a new beginning.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Some of our pets live at our sanctuary in Shell Lake, WI, and others are fostered in homes in the Twin Cities, MN area. We do adoptions days at least once a month. We can make arrangements for you to meet any of our pets on an appointment basis.

Our Adoption Process...

Welcoming a pet into your home is a commitment of time, patience, money and love. You should think very carefully and do your research before adopting any animal. Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary spays / neuters all companion animals before adoption. All animals are vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested (dogs), feline leukemia tested and microchipped. If you find an animal that you are interested in on our web site please call, or e-mail us, and we will gladly tell you more about that special animal. Our experienced volunteers will help you select a companion animal that will fit your personality and lifestyle. We want you to experience a rewarding, lifetime relationship with your new companion. If you find a furry friend you wish to adopt you will fill out an adoption application and then a home visit will be set up. At the time of adoption you will fill out an adoption contract and pay the adoption donation.
