Hugo is a Belgian Malinois owned by Eva Mendes. The breed is renowned for their agility and protective temperament. While most celebrities have fluffy playful dogs, Eva Mendes got herself a loyal guard dog that follows her every step. Prior to adopting Hugo, Eva had an issue with a fan from New York who stalked her to her doorstep, and claimed she was deathly in love with him. Shortly after she got a restraining order. Almost a year after, her boyfriend Ryan Gosling convinced her to adopt the loyal guard dog companion.
Hugo is quite the canine. Thanks to his babysitter / trainer, Cesar Millan, Hugo is capable of taking down any adversary as well as burning off extra energy on a treadmill.
