Macron’s dog in video plea for sensible pet adoption

Paris (AFP) – French President Emmanuel Macron’s dog has starred in a video urging people to adopt pets sensibly over the holidays. Nemo, a black Labrador-Griffin mix, was a rescue dog who Macron and his wife Brigitte reportedly adopted in 2017.

Wagging his tail – his barks helpfully subtitled in the Facebook video – the president’s four-legged companion tells viewers that 10,000 animals are abandoned every year in France. “So adopt them. But adopt with awareness,” Nemo said.
