Just looking for someone to stay home with him when we are all gone for more than a short period of time. Someone is almost always home, so he isn't used to being alone. It's mostly just for us, so we don't worry about him or feel bad.
Cashew - mix, probably part dachshund and part of the bigger (nicer, calmer) deer-head chihuahua. Going on 6 years old.
Sweet, shy, a little scared, but nice.
Letting him come to you and giving him time
It's a house with a big driveway.
