Hugo, our Adoptable Dog of the Week, has a huge heart to go along with his huge personality. He is a young Pitbull Terrier from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Hugo is already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Hugo’s Story:

Handsome Hugo is a rambunctious pup who is maturing into a big, lovable, goofy, smart, sometimes sassy, and (mostly) composed puppy teenager! While he earned the name Hurricane Hugo the first couple weeks in his foster home, Hugo has been working hard on his manners and composure. Be careful, though, because this gentleman will cover you in kisses. Hugo doesn’t discriminate: everyone from total strangers to his best friends are open for a solid lean-in and kiss up the face!

Hugo is a playful, high energy pup who loves to go, go, go!!! He needs a home that will devote the time to giving him proper mental and physical drain every day. Hugo can wait patiently before dinner time or for a bowl of water to be placed on the floor; kennel up; sit, lay down, drop it, leave it, shake, give, take, down, off; and, most importantly to “look” to his humans for instructions and praise.

With firm leadership from his people and a solid game of fetch or long walks, this big guy loves to cuddle up. His preferred spot is on the couch beside you with something good to chew on. Hugo loves to be where his people are!
