  Hugo is a 3 year old Rescued Landseer Newfoundland from Idaho. With Operation Rescue Hugo we campaigned around the globe to bring Hugo all the way to Pennsylvania to his forever home in hopes to create a service dog for a sufferer of PTSD - 

  Hugo had a very rough beginning in his short life. - From the poor breeding and horrible genetics to the lack of training and love he arrived with a multitude of problems.  He was not cared for or loved the way a beautiful Newfoundland should be loved. With a lot of dedication and love from his Dad he has become a wonderful companion. The two of them found stability and security and the ability to love and trust each other. 

   Now Hugo is in need of our help.  He has Patellar Luxation and a possible torn cruciate.  He is in need of surgery.

   We want to be able to keep Hugo in his safe and happy home but surgeries are expensive so we are reaching out to you all for some help to keep these guys together where they belong!

We have several ways you can be a Hero for Hugo
