Hugo is a great dog in every way. He has been in his original home since he was a puppy and the family has grown over the years, recently adding a daughter to the mix. Hugo is excellent with the little girl who is now two years old, and a very submissive pup by nature. He greets other dogs and people with ease and is very friendly.
Sadly, his dad is traveling a lot now, his mom works long hours, and with a 2 year old in their life, they feel they don’t have the proper time to give Hugo. He may be 9 years old, but he’s a very active, athletic pup who loves to run and play, and needs his daily walks, socialization, and playtime to keep him healthy and happy.
Hugo is crate and potty trained, and walks well on leash. He likes to lead, but is easy to manage and really enjoys exploring the world around him. He is great with kids and lets them touch without reaction. He is an affectionate dog who wants to be loved, and loves to snuggle with maximum body contact. He enjoys being under blankets when he naps, keeping his snout covered, and is so cute when he dreams.
Hugo will make an excellent family dog, ideal for a home with kids and or dogs too. He would love another playful pup in his home to romp with, and is always up for a good wrestle, whether it’s with another dog or human. He’s an all-around great pup who is going to make some lucky family very happy.
