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.
Albert is not without his quirks, 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.
We are estimating him to be 6 to 8 years old, and a chihuahua/dachshund mix. He is overweight at 20 pounds, and will need some regular exercise to get him healthy again. Albert is dog tolerant and greets dogs nicely on walks or hanging out. However, he would prefer to be your only pet at home as he LOVES to be the center of attention.
The ideal home for Albert would be a single person that he can bond to and stay close to. He tends to be more comfortable with women than men.
