I just adopted a 1-2 year old Chihuahua mix who is a total sweetheart. The place I rescued him from said he was used to being alone for 8 hours and out wouldn't be an issue. At the foster place he was with other dogs though. I only have him. However he has whined and howled all day today so far. Today is my first day back to work since I got him. I can't afford doggy day care. Does anyone have any ideas? I want to work with him, but I'm not sure how.

Get some puzzle toys for him. Some dogs also like to watch TV, so maybe turn on the TV. Have him exercised before you leave and don't make a big show of leaving or entering your home. Try to slip out without him noticing. If there are any decently priced dog walkers in your area, that is also something to consider. If it is possible for you to go home for lunch, do so.
Good Luck.
