If Hugh could talk, he would probably have such a sad story to tell. Hugh came to us from Tennessee when he was picked up as a stray. The nice rescuers in TN that sent him to us told us that he was an absolute sweetheart, but until you meet Hugh, you just can't even imagine how nice this big boy is. Hugh is about 8 years old and is a Great Pyrenees/husky mix. He has the scars on his face and legs that tell us that he had it pretty rough in life, but Hugh holds nothing against the human race. Saying that Hugh is nice and sweet doesn't even do this dog justice....he is beyond sweet. He is so mellow, loving, mature, distinguished and just an all-around fabulous guy. He is shy when he first meets people, but once he gets to trust you, he will love and adore you always. Hugh is incredibly well behaved, walks perfectly on a leash, is super gentle, and gets along well with other dogs. Hugh was in a foster home in TN with small children, and he happily went to a tea party with the little girl in the home, so he does fine with children too! Hugh is so deserving of a wonderful home....please make his dreams come true! 1/12/13 File#22214
