Description: 
Please contact Kristen (hominyvalleyrescue@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Hugo was pulled from a kill shelter the day he was scheduled to go into the gas chamber. He is between 1 and 2 years old, and about 50-55 pounds. He is a little too exuberant for a house with children, being that he likes to jump up when he's excited to see you. He can also be a bit mouthy. He will sit for his food, and he likes to chase after anything you throw, but has not caught onto the whole bringing it back so you can throw it again concept. Once he gets the thing that you've thrown, he runs around and throws it for himself! I do not believe he was ever kept in the house before, so he is in the process of learning proper house manners. He is somewhat afraid of going in a crate, so he is also learning that it is not a bad place to be. He adores being petted, does not mind getting a bath or having his nails trimmed, has no issues with food aggression, and is an excellent watch dog. He does not dig in the yard or try to climb out of his kennel, but he does like to stand on top of his dog house to survey his territory. Hugo is lacking in doggie social skills, and thinks cats and other small animals would make great toys, so he is best adopted as an only pet. Hugo's adoption fee is $80. If you would like to give Hugo a try via our foster-to-adopt program, send us an e-mail and we will send you the adoption application to fill out. A full refund of the adoption fee will be granted upon proof of graduation of an approved training class.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hugo does not currently have a foster home. If you are interested in temporarily fostering Hugo, and are willing and able to do a little training with him, please contact us! We will pay for his training classes in full.
