Introducing Albert! He is initially shy with new people, but once he decides you’re okay he enjoys the attention and affection he receives. One of his life goals is to be a full time lap dog, and loves to ride shotgun for car rides!
He is not without his quirks and we admit he’s a stubborn one. He loves treats and has found that people food is also delicious, and if he can sneak into the pantry or onto the table he will not be shy about helping himself. He’s not comfortable in large crowds and loud noises can be scary, but walks are fine as long as you keep an eye out for things that can startle him (bikes are scary when they get too close!).
We are estimating him to be 6 to 8 years old, and a chihuahua/dachshund mix. He is a little overweight at 16 pounds, and will need some regular exercise to get him healthy again.
Albert enjoys the company of other dogs and would be happy to live in a house with dogs around. He has not been tested with cats.
