Black labrador-griffon cross Nemo has joined Macron's entourage in the role of "first dog".


French President Emmanuel Macron is used to being under the media’s spotlight, but his new rescue dog Nemo wasn’t quite as at ease in front of the cameras.

The black labrador-griffon cross joined Macron’s entourage in the role of “first dog” and, at two years old, has been acting his age.

As German vice chancellor and foreign affairs minister Sigmar Gabriel made an official visit to Paris, Nemo ran around the politicians, ignoring his master’s multiple orders to “sit”.

Nemo continues the tradition of French presidents owning dogs and cost €250 from an animal rescue centre, according to French daily Le Figaro.
