Hugh came to AWA from Korea, where he was going to be sold as meat for human consumption. As you can imagine, he was very shy and scared. Our donors allowed our behaviorists to spend months working with Hugh,  teaching him how to be a dog. Hugh learned new things like how to walk on a leash and how to put his trust in humans.

After months of rehabilitation, Hugh went off to a rescue group where he was quickly adopted by a woman who volunteers with the program. AWA is so happy that Hugh found a forever family.

“I cried like a baby the day he left, but I was also extremely happy for his next endeavor. We had taken him as far as he could go in the shelter, and he was ready for a forever home. ” – Kelly M.
