Covid-19 update: Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with social distancing measures in place to keep our staff and adopters safe.

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but you can still make an appointment to adopt or bring a dog to us. We’ve set up new processes to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe, including matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free.

Local restrictions may affect our rehoming procedures, so please check the rules for your area: we’re not able to facilitate appointments or adoptions across different tiers, or anywhere there are travel restrictions.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

I'm looking for a new home...

About Hugo

2 to 5 Years


Hugo is a very cute 3yr old Pomeranian, who knows his own mind. He has lots of personality and is looking for a home who can handle it! He likes to play with his toys and loves his food, a little bit too much sometimes! But this does mean that he is very attentive to his training. Hugo will be a project from his new family, he can be a very worried boy, especially when it comes to being handled and meeting strangers. He has multiple training programmes that will need to be continued in the home and his new family will need to visit the centre multiple times, so he can get to know them and so that his handlers can go through his training programmes with them. Hugo is a spritely little fellow and enjoys his walks but will need to be walked in quieter areas so that he feels safe and comfortable.

Type of home needed

Once he gets to know you Hugo is very sweet, he is looking for an adult only home with time and patience. He could potentially live in a semi-built up area, but as mentioned above will need to be walked in quiet places, that aren't too busy and where he can keep his distance from scary dogs and people. The home will need to have limited visitors, until Hugo has time to settle and a visitor programme has been put in place. He also cannot be left and will need to build up any time left alone very slowly. Hugo requires on-going training in the home, he is looking for a family who has time and will be dedicated to keeping on top of his handling, grooming and resource guarding training. And additionally, be able to manage him, so he can feel safe and secure. New owners will have the support and guidance of our Training and Behaviour team. Hugo would like a secure garden, so he can potter about and if the world feels too scary some days, he can relax in the comfort of his own home.

More about me

Hugo MUST be the only pet in the home. He is housetrained and knows some basic commands, such as sit, down and paw. Due to lockdown restrictions and Hugo needing multiple meets at the centre, we cannot proceed with any applications until restrictions have been lifted. You can still apply for Hugo by clicking on the 'Come and Meet Me' button below, but please be aware that successful applicants may not be contacted until circumstances change. Applications will stop when we have found a suitable match.


In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Hugo, who is based at Newbury (Berkshire). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
