Little bit about Hugo

Hugo is a 4 year old Dogue de Bordeaux cross, and a big goofy boy! He came in the night cages and was sadly never collected. He is a big softy, and is looking for a best buddy or family to help him explore the world.

Huge can be a bit timid and shy, so he needs an experienced dog owner who is going to go slow with him and let him explore everything at his own pace. He will need a safe spot in the home where he can go and relax, away from everyone if he chooses.

Hugo is a little nervous around fast movements or new things, so he’ll have to go home to a family with kids over 12 who know to be calm and gentle with him. His new family will have to do ongoing training and socialisation with Hugo, to teach him all about the big wide world so he can get stuck in to it! Once he’s comfortable Hugo loves to play and bounce around, so someone who is committed to giving him lots of play and games is a must!

Hugo has met a few dogs at the shelter and been able to say hi, so if you have a dog at home be sure to bring them in and we can make sure they all get along!

Hugo saw a few chickens while here and he was focused and wanted to pull towards them. Due to this Hugo will need to go to a home where there are no cats, pocket pets or chickens.

If you think you’d be the perfect home for Hugo, please give our Adoptions team a call and organise a meet and greet with the whole family today!
