Find a friend: Adopt a pet

Once a week Metro features an animal you can adopt from the ASPCA. This week, say hello to Nemo!

Hi, my name is Nemo! I’m a 6-year-old cocker spaniel mix who is looking for a very special family to take me home. I was hit by a car a few months ago and had to have one of my legs amputated, but it hasn’t dampened my spirit. While I can’t go for long hikes in the woods, I love to run around when I’m outside.

I’m a little shy when meeting someone new; but once I know you, I’m very affectionate and loving. I’d like to learn some basic tricks, but you might have to tempt me with some tasty treats first.

I’m cautious with other dogs and get a bit nervous, but with some guidance I may make some doggie friends. I need an owner with some experience and would be best with kids who are older than 12.

I can’t wait to meet my new best friends and finally have a place to call my own.
