Male - 1 years old
Hi there! My name is Hugo, and I am one handsome stud! My foster mom tells me all the time I am a good boy, and have such beautiful pittie physical features. I have the sweetest almond shaped eyes, and they are so filled with love when you look into them. I am a gorgeous black boy with a white patch on my chest and on the back of my feet. Did I mention I am really handsome? I am a super goofy boy and love to lay around on the couch with you in the silliest positions! I’m not quite sure about my background since getting into rescue as I was found as a stray, and was set to be euthanized before Save-a-Bull pulled me from Animal Control that morning. I did come into rescue knowing some commands such as sit and stay so my foster mom feels I did have some former training. I am so grateful for a second chance in life, and am living my best life learning what it means to be loved and cared for.
I do really well with not going to the bathroom inside, but have had a few accidents in the short time I have been in my foster home. I have been working on my kenneling manners, and my foster mom is so pleased with the progress I have made! I need a little encouragement going in there, but I settle down quickly and do very well. I just love being around people! I sleep with my foster mom at night, but sometimes I just want my own space and sleep out on the couch. My foster mom doesn’t mind this because I do not get into “human things.” I know “sit” and “stay”, and have been doing a lot of really great work on “leave them alone” as I like to nibble on my foster sibling’s ears to initiate play! I have learned so much, and strive to be the best pup ever! I have not done any training courses yet, but I think I would really love it! My foster mom says I follow commands really well, and when rewarded with treats I take them so gently. I also eat my food in my kennel, and take my time which is something my foster mom is not used to with her resident dogs.
I have met the neighbor girls through the gate, and they seem nice! I think I would do best in a home that doesn’t have little humans as I get excited sometimes, but I have been working really hard on containing my excitement and learning manners. I have not met any cats, but I think I would be a little too interested in them. Currently I live with a female pit mix who is ten years old and much smaller than me, and we get along great! I also live with a pit mix male who is four years old, and we really like to play with each other as we are about the same size. I do really well with playing with them, and respect the boundaries they put in place. I am so excited while playing with other dogs that I tend to be more dominant, but I listen really well when my foster mom tells me to leave them alone and give them space. I love chasing them around the yard, and then I am perfectly content sitting in the kennel by myself to chew on one of their toys for a few minutes.
Here are some things my foster mom wants you to know about me:
I take treats really well, and am so gentle. I do well in the car, and love to go on rides. I don’t pull much on my leash, and have really good manners with this. I LOVE taking baths! My kisses are so gentle, and I just love being around people. My foster mom’s favorite thing about me is that I will crawl on the couch with her and wrap my arms around her waist and lay my head on her shoulder to give her a hug. She says it is one of her favorite things about me outside of my outstanding looks. I am really well behaved, and just love being around my humans!
My forever home would consist of someone who will be consistent with boundaries, and love me unconditionally. I think I would be ok in a home with or without dogs. I like to play with my foster siblings, but also love being the only one getting all the love! Can I join your family and find my forever home?
