Please Listen to a Tale of a Scaredy Pooch....
This long-legged lad is 3-and-a-half-year-old Hugo, a handsome canine if ever we saw one! With his endearingly hangdog looks and his wonderfully affectionate character, Hugo is a fellow who leaves more than a little imprint upon your heart.
Each and every dog has a fear of something - which can often make very little sense to us - but Hugo hasn't picked just one seemingly trivial item to be fearful of, he has decided upon a whole spectrum of things. Were he a chick he would've hopped straight back into the egg, or were he a butterfly he would've undoubtedly fluttered right back into his chrysalis - such is his nervousness of the scary world which we inhabit.
As such, you would need to be ready to accommodate a pooch who can be more than a little uncertain in new situations and will require a fair bit of reassurance from any prospective new owner. He is, however, more than worth the patience it will require to bring him out of his adorable, little shell. Hugo is an immensely loving dog, and there is no greater feeling of contentment than when this gorgeous guy curls up next to on the sofa with his pointed snout resting gently upon your lap.
Hugo's most problematic characteristic is that he can get quite anxious when he is left all alone, and likes very much to know that there is someone present who can take care of him and keep all the bad things away. This can lead to little accidents occurring when he is left by himself, so he'll need an owner who, in the short term, will leave him only very sporadically, followed by some training to get him used to his much loved owners leaving the house without him. It would be fair to say that once Hugo is settled and becomes more familiar with his new home and owners this area should improve. Hugo has become very accustomed to using a large indoor dog crate at the animal centre, which he will need in his new home to help him settle in his new surroundings.
Hugo makes us all our staff and volunteers laugh and smile everyday, he deserves a special new home and an owner who can shield him from the darkness that dwells without.
