Hugo was pulled from the shelter in Taichung. He currently lives with two women, two dogs and three cats. He loves sleeping with people! Other than pottying during the night, he can sleep through the night. When the humans sleeping next to him wakes up, he would wake up too and follow his person around. He loves being groomed and enjoys the warm air from the hairdryer. He can sleep through while being dried. He loves seating at the middle arm rest in the car when his human drives. Does alert bark sometimes at strangers but not always. So far, the foster has not figured out his trigger for his inconsistent alert barking.
