Bingo is a 2-year-old, 15-pound neutered male Chihuahua-Dachshund mix. He has been at the Idaho Humane Society since the beginning of June and he has quickly become a staff favorite. Bingo is a nervous, shy dog when you first meet him. He will need a patient and gentle family that can help him learn that the world isn’t such a scary place. It will take time for him to love and trust you, but plenty of treats, walks, playtime and snuggles will help him become more comfortable. And then you will find yourself with a playful dog that loves to wiggle around on laps and give kisses. He likes to play fetch and tug-of-war or go for runs on a leash. Bingo gets along great with other dogs and becomes more confident when he is around them. Having another canine friend at home will help him become more comfortable with his human family members. Bingo likes cats, although he does try and play with them. Bingo will be best in a home without kids, as fast movements and loud noises tend to scare him. Bingo is very timid around men but it is possible to socialize him and train him to not be as scared of them – just know that it will require effort and patience.
