Meet hunkalicious LUGO!

It is hard to imagine that this stunning boy came from Death Row at Manhattan ACC. At only 11 months old, this black/brindle Rottweiler mix (who weighs in at 90 pounds) is so very handsome, affectionate, playful, and intelligent (his foster mom says he is super eager to learn new things all the time!).

He is currently attending obedience classes where he is honing his big boy skills such as basic commands and good leash manners. Lugo would benefit from continued follow-up on this training! This young lad can be easily excited, although he maintains soft body language. He tends to be mouthy during handling (in a playful manner), but he responds well to redirection.

He has demonstrated good doggie social skills, and is very curious about the cats who dwell in his foster home ~ he would likely do alright with a dog-savvy feline with supervised introductions.

He is sweet and loving with children (currently lives with a 6 year old) and is bouncy, snuggly and a total loverboy!!

Lugo is house trained, up to date on all his shots, and micro-chipped. He will be neutered soon.
