Nemo is a handsome very good boy!  He’s very affectionate and loves being with is favorite person!  Nemo is pretty perfect!  He’s a great mix of playful and silly with calm and relaxed.  He is great with other dogs of all sizes!  Nemo is great on walks and in the car.  He knows some commands like sit, down, and stay.  His love for his humans is no secret, he will just stare at you with those dreamy eyes.  Nemo is one of those dogs who will be “the one” for a very lucky adopter.  He is a special boy!  Nemo is very afraid of storms, thunder and loud noises.  His foster has began using the thunder shirt and rescue remedy before storms and it does help.  He will hide in the bathroom or want to be held on your lap.  His foster home has had a few other dogs in the past with the same fear and with time and patience they did move past it.  Nemo is in Philadelphia, PA.
