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.
