About Hugo

Dogue De Bordeaux
1 to 2 Years


Hugo is a loveable gentle giant. Despite his appearance he is quite a shy character and takes time to come out of his shell with new people. Hugo finds everyday life scary and needs help learning about the world with the support of his new owner to help with continuing his socialisation. Most of the day he can be found snoozing in the lounge with his foster carers and enjoys a plod around on a walk.

Type of home needed

Hugo is quite foody and if left to he own devises wouldn't think twice about emptying the bin and will pester from food. Hugo is looking for a quiet home where he can settle at his own pace and become more confident in his own skin. Hugo can live with adults only and no other pets.

More about me

Hugo is being cared for in one of our brilliant foster homes so is not currently at the centre. If you are interested in Hugo please call the centre before visiting.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Hugo, who is based at Loughborough. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
