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.
