CHICAGO (CBS) — Tamale is the PAWS Pet of the Week.

He’s a four-year-old dachshund-retriever mix who is an affectionate companion, once he gets to know you. Tamale enjoys playing with toys and all the attention, scratches and belly rubs he can get.

Tamale will wait patiently for treats, knows basic obedience and is crate-trained. He likes to follow around his human but can entertain himself and nap when his people are busy.

He would do best in a pets-free adults-only home in a quiet area. Tamale will welcome you home with tail wags and enthusiasm.

Check out the PAWS Chicago website to learn all about the virtual adoption process.
