Shelter: BC SPCA - Comox Valley & District
Animal ID: 449781
Birthdate: June 02, 2017 - Young Adult
Hugo is an intelligent 7 month old Coonhound who is recovering from a pelvic injury. He loves food puzzles and food mazes and chewing on bones. If he gets bored he will try to liberate the stuffing from his dog beds so we would recommend providing him with folded blankets or a durable bed and toys without stuffing. He loves kongs and other durable toys. He has a very loud bark and gets mouthy when he is frustrated. The best thing for Hugo is to keep him busy with toys and games until his injury has fully healed. He will require training that can start immediately with basic obedience and only low activity. Once he has healed, he will require a lot of physical activity. At the shelter, we have started Hugo on clicker training, target training, and basic obedience. Hugo would likely not be well suited for apartment or condo life because of his loud bark, a home with no close neighbours would be ideal. Because of his medical issues, we have not been able to test him with cats or other dogs. It would be best for Hugo to go to an owner(s) that has owned dogs before and has experience with training intelligent dogs.
