Nemo is Sled Dog Rescue's Pet of the Week for Dec. 12.

Pets of the Week

Nemo is a 1-year-old guy with lots of energy. He is an escape artist, and has the marks on his nose to prove it (he pushes the latch on the gate with his nose until he gets it open). That is his biggest downfall, but also his biggest achievement. He can get out of practically any containment, so he'd be best with someone to be near him a lot of the time. He would also love lots of running and exercise. Nemo is sweet, needs to gain a few pounds, but otherwise is an energetic husky. For more information on Nemo, call 800-471-5822 or email rescue@norsled.org.

Adoption hours are noon-5 p m. Wednesday; 3-7 p.m. Thursday and Friday; and noon-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The primary caretaker must be present. Call 925-256-1273.
