Hugo came to MAGDRL in August 2022.
Hugo is a 2-3 year old Blue Piebald Male Great Dane with natural ears who came to MAGDRL from a shelter. We don’t have much history on Hugo but we can see he is a sweet boy who seems to like everyone he meets. Hugo has been neutered and gastropexied and currently is in a foster home with a senior male Labrador and a cat and has integrated nicely with both of them. Hugo does know some commands but is strong and needs work with leash manners. Hugo would love a family of his own that will love him and work on helping him to be the best he can be.

Hugo has been in his new foster home for almost a month now. His foster home has found that he is highly food motivated and discovered he has been trained in hand signals, what a nice discovery! Hugo is super playful and has lots of energy. He loves other dogs and enjoys being around them, even very little ones! Hugo loves his walks and enjoys going to the dog park. He plays with rope toys, squeaky toys and loves marrow bones. He loves to rest on the landing of the stairs and watch what’s going on. He doesn’t particularly like his crate but will counter surf if he gets the opportunity, so while his foster home is working on this, he still needs to be crated. He gets very excited when it’s time to come out of the crate and his foster home will wait for him to calm and sit before opening the crate door. Other behaviors being working on is his barking at outside stimuli and he is learning the command “I got this” to settle his excitement at outside activity.
Hugo is super affectionate and fully house trained. He will sleep on a dog bed and stay with his person thru the night so crating is only needed when no one is home.
Hugo has made tremendous strides in his foster home and is ready for a family to call his own!
