Nemo

Adoption Pending

Nemo was relinquished to HSS after the death of his owner.  He is 5 years old, 11-12 inches, 30 pounds, UTD, neutered, heartworm/fecal negative.

From Nemo’s Foster: Nemo has warmed up significantly since we’ve had him.  The DNA test says he’s 70% Sheltie and 30% Pembroke Corgi (with a small dash of Collie).  He’s got Sheltie coloring on a Corgi body!  He has a beautiful, thick, short haired coat. He has lost some weight since we’ve had him, but could lose a few more pounds.

He is slowly adapting to his new environment and routine. He is well behaved on leash during his morning walks, but eyes up squirrels and is curious about the neighborhood cats. Nemo starting to learn a few basic obedience commands like come and sit. He can catch a treat like nobody’s business!  He is thinking about catching a ball too; he just needs to learn what to do with it next!

Nemo is good in a crate and at times prefers to rest in it even with the door open.  When he’s loose in the house he has short bursts of energy and play and then curls up at your feet occasionally looking for attention.  He is fully house trained, we have had no accidents and he will trot outside to potty when we ask him to.   Nemo is a gentleman who does not get into things even when left alone.

Nemo is an all weather dog, not concerned with rain or storms (or even a bath!).  He tolerates being brushed.  Some loud noises or sudden movement can startle him, but he shakes them off and moves on. Given his background with an older owner and not having  been around kids, a home without children would be best.

Nemo and our older resident Sheltie get along just fine.  Nemo is less keen on the higher energy young Shelties, and would rather not engage with them.  An only dog home where he can get all the attention and curl up without being bothered would be ideal!

If you are looking for a cute, low maintenance dog to walk around the block, curl up at your feet and toss treats to – Nemo is your boy!!!
