Nemo arrived in the early hours of the morning on a transport from South Carolina - a notoriously bad place to be a beagle. He was well behaved on his overnight stay before being taken to the vet. Nemo is a very sweet boy who is just trying to wrap his head around all the recent changes in his life. We suspect that life hasn't been a bed of roses and he's probably expecting more of the same. When taken outside for his photo shoot he wanted to look anywhere but the camera - and he hung his head as though expecting a beating at any moment. Of course, his demeanor could also be attributed to pain - his mouth is in sore need of a dental.
We expect that a comfortable bed, good food, kind hands and a loving voice will go a long way to improving Nemo's outlook on life.
Typical of his birthplace, no veterinary care has been extended to this boy. He is heartworm positive and will need a couple of months for treatment.
His foster mom sent a little note about him. "I was working on the computer and started to hear this strange noise. I looked up and Nemo was snoring and sleeping on a pile of dirty clothes. Later, he saw the cat, smelled the cat and walked away. A good sign!"
Please consider helping Nemo find his forever home with you!
