Hugo is usually fine with gentle dogs and will happily have a sniff. But he sometimes objects if an exuberant, rough or super playful dog rushes up to him.
Yes. However, we routinely prefer any kids to be primary school aged or older and only if calm and gentle around dogs.
Medium - playful and energetic. Energetic to start with, then settles down.
How is this dog on a lead?
As is normal Hugo is ok unless he sees something exciting and then he can become harder to manage.
How is this dog off the lead?
Hugo’s recall is not vey good – he tends to takes off and won't come back.
No. However, he will need a secure yard including one where he can’t dig under a fence.
Currently a nuisance barker?
Not usually however, if you miss a walk one day Hugo will become bored and understandably may chew or dig a little.
Yes. Even without a doggy door he will let you know when he needs to go outside.
Tolerance to being alone.
Hugo will happily sun bake and sleep when alone however, preference will be given to a home where he does not have to spend extended periods alone – we don’t want him sleeping his life away because his family are time poor.
Hugo’s most favourite thing to do is spending time with the people he loves. Even if it is simply relaxing inside while people go about their business. Otherwise he tends to fret and get sad. He also loves chewing bones, food, walks and sleeping.
Hugo dislikes lawnmowers, wiper-snipers and rustling noises.
Hugo will thrive in a home with a medium to large sized yard that is relatively secure and safe. He would love to interact with anyone who wants to play but we routinely recommend kids be at least primary school aged and older. Hugo would suit families, singles, retirees or people who work from home as long as you have plenty of time for a dog that loves attention and affection. He will not suit homes with other dogs or where there are very young, elderly or frail residents.
Hugo is quite a character who loves a routine and will let you know if it changes – like crying if his brekky is late. Remember, he loves his food ☺ His beautiful puppy dog eyes will make it hard for you to resist his charm. Hugo is a rather placid dog and gentle with people. He will make you feel safe and will alert you to something strange but is likely to show a thief where the silver ware is.
To our knowledge Hugo has previously been a cherished pet and has not been abused or neglected – which is reflected in his lovely temperament.
