Dogs are usually called “good boys,” but Hugo, a one-and-a-half-year-old Cocker Spaniel, proves over and over again that he is not at all like that. This dog has managed to run away from home more than 270 times in his life!
It absolutely cannot be left unattended: it will chew on everything that comes across, even money. Come on, “worst cat in the world” Perdita, move over, you have a worthy competitor in terms of harmfulness!
Hugo’s owners are Kelly Coombs and Brian, and they also have two sons, one of whom is 11 and the other 14 years old. They call their pet “Hugo the Terrible” because this little dog is destructive and cannot be trusted.
He started running away from home every other day as a puppy. Hugo gnaws on the net, digs and gets out of the fence. Fortunately, he does not manage to escape far – usually, he is found in no more than half an hour.
If Hugo does not plan to escape, then he gnaws EVERYTHING: furniture, clothes and even money.
Kelly works from home so she doesn’t have to leave Hugo unattended. However, the dog once destroyed 300 pounds.
The family does not know what is the reason for this behavior of Hugo. The dog has a wonderful life; he is accepted and loved for who he is. Maybe he’s just a jerk, or maybe he’s just still young and can’t sit still, because he wants adventure. Time will tell!
