Hugo is a male Neapolitan Mastiff who played Rubeus Hagrid's dog, Fang, in the film adaptations of Philosopher's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, and Prisoner of Azkaban. He was followed in this role by Monkey, in Order of the Phoenix, and Uno, in Half-Blood Prince.
The one thing that Hugo's trainer, Gary Gero, couldn't teach him was not to drool. In 2003, Hugo appeared on the British television show This Morning, and unintentionally spat into the mouth of presenter Fern Britton.
