Whether you're bringing home a new puppy or an older rescue dog, there will be a lot of challenges in the first few weeks. Everyone is making adjustments and getting used to an entirely new way of life, but seeing your pup open up to their new home can be oh-so-magical. Just ask @nemotherescuepuppy's new mom!
The 3-month-old German Shepherd/Collie puppy had never experienced life in his own home before, so he had a lot to take in when he got home. Nemo was definitely very shy and skittish--and he's still getting used to his new humans--but his new morning routine shows what a sweet boy he is!
If his puppy dog eyes don't melt your heart, something is seriously wrong.
Just look at him! Every morning is a good morning when you're coming down the stairs to this cutie patootie, but this particular day must've been so special. Nemo running to his mama may seem like a small thing, but considering all the progress he's made, it's huge!

"Awwww 😍🥰😍🥰 The trusting processes has begun 😍🥰😍🥰," commented @lissa__138. "So proud of him 💙❤️💙❤️." We are too! Both Nemo and his mama are doing an awesome job of letting each other adjust. He went from being afraid of her to being happy to see her in just a matter of days! To quote commenter @lourienne--if she and Nemo keep this all up, "you will have the best bond!"
Of course, so many viewers were distracted by Nemo's adorable face--ourselves included! @Luna_thecorgi11 can't get enough of "those ears😍," which look softer than the floofiest blanket, while @mchilton25 is a fan of "his eyes 🥺." All in all--he's just about the perfect package!
