Hugo – Now Adopted!

Hugo is a lovely young boy who is playful and loving. He is relaxed around the children in foster and lets them cuddle and kiss him. He enjoys all human contact, whether that’s cuddles or grooming.

He will walk happily in his harness and is good with other dogs on his walks. Hugo’s obedience is also good, and he adores rough play and his tennis balls.

Dogs Name: Hugo

Age: 3 Years 3 months

Can live with children: Yes

Can live with dogs: No

Can live with cats: Untested

Current location: Midlands

Things to be Aware of:
Hugo has been started on grain free kibble but is on Apoquel at present as he came to us with a food allergy. Hopefully his current food will suit him and the Apoquel can stop. He is not a fan of the hoover

The Ideal Family:
Hugo is a young dog that needs an active family that will exercise him as he loves his walks. He is very good around children but because he has no concept of his size, we feel children should not be younger than 4 years old.

Other comments:
Hugo has been described as ‘a beautiful dog and will make a wonderful addition to any family and home’, by his foster dad Ian.

He is neutered and toilet trained, and he can be left for a maximum of 4 hours. Hugo travels well so we will consider a home for him up to 4 hours from his current location.

If you have any questions, please ask Ian Dunkin, foster dad to Hugo.

Hugo’s adoption fee is £400 and will need to be paid in full prior to him going home which will also be subject to a home check.

Adoption Information

*** As of April 2019, Geordie Bullies Springboard introduced a small charge to apply to adopt a dog from our charity. *** IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY AGAIN FOR 12 MONTHS***

How will it work?

We will be charging £5.00 per year for membership to apply for a bulldog with the charity, this will also cover the cost of a home check if required. This fee will cover you for one year from the date you apply, you do not pay per application.

For example, you apply for a dog and pay your £5.00 membership, you have a home check and are not successful for that dog, so you apply again for another dog a few months after, you will not pay another £5.00 assuming your situation is the same.

Please note, there is an exception to the above. If you pay your £5.00 and move within the year and require another home check before you have been successful, there will be a further £5.00 charge to cover volunteer expenses of carrying out a new home check.

Your Responsibility as an Applicant

When you are applying for a dog, you MUST make sure you meet the adoption criteria and you are 100% sure you are ready to open your heart and home to a rescue dog. Please pay attention to the requirements of the dog, in particular, consider the following. • How far the dog can travel in relation to where you live. • The suitability of the dog should you wish to add to your pack later. Does the dog you are applying to adopt like other dogs? • Are there any restrictions with the age of children the dog can be rehomed with? If so, how does this match your family unit?

Prior to completing an application form, you will need to pay the £5.00 fee via PayPal. Please put the name of the dog and your name as reference. E.g. Joe Bloggs (your name) / Bella (dogs name). Please make a note of your payment reference number. PLEASE also ensure you select friends and family to avoid fees for the charity, the fees are an extra 30p if you wish to pay goods and services so £5.30 instead of £5.00 When completing the adoption application form, you will be prompted to enter your PayPal reference number and date of payment. If this is not entered, we will not process your application.
