Adopt a dog



Hugo is looking for his forever home.

He is a strong, smart boy who thrives from being challenged with his daily training. He needs continuing work on his lead manners, so would benefit for someone who is eager to continue his training and has experience with his breed.

Hugo can be nervous when first meeting people or going into new environments, he can appear to be aggressive with barking and lunging but very quickly comes out his shell and shows you his loving personality when he has built up a trust and bond.

Hugo would be best suited to an experienced dog owner who won’t be put off by his initial appearance and who is prepared for him to receive the training, daily stimulants and attention he needs, DAWGS would be committed to help with cost of ongoing behaviourist.

He can bark and lunge at passing people and dogs however is responsive to basic commands and is easily distracted by little bits of chicken to keep his focus on the handler.

We are looking for an adult only, animal free home, with a large enclosed garden possibly a rural location.

This handsome man is full of love and would make a great addition to his new home.
