Hugh, the pet of the week at the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society, is truly a gentle giant. He's a big lug who is goofy, playful and very snugly. He treats complete strangers as if they are long lost friends. Hugh is wonderful with other dogs, wanting to wrestle and play with all of them. Hugh is 8 months old and weighs 76 pounds.

Come meet Hugh and all of his friends during adoption hours Wednesday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the society shelter at 2700 Ninth St. Details: www.berkeleyhumane.org or 510-845-3633.
