Plenty of Pets

Hugo is a happy and loving two-year-old.

He is deaf, so he needs a home where people have experience with deaf dogs or are willing to learn how to work with them.

Hugo loves to play and meet new people. He weighs about 67 pounds and is house trained and crate trained. He’s good when left alone but is still very puppy-like at times so he might do best crated. He loves cuddling with people

His home will need to be cat free as he has a high prey drive, and free of younger children because of his tendency to jump up.
Hugo is neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites, and microchipped. He comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. His adoption fee is $400.
