i picked up my new havanese dog this morning from a rescue organization. He is very very nervous and seems to be scared in my house. He seems to stay in the same spot for hours at a time. He is up to date on all his shots, has been neutered, and has had worm tests. I don’t think he has been abused by a previous owner either. Sometimes he gets so nervous and scared that he starts shaking. He drank water, but he hasn’t eaten any of his food. I am really worried. What could be wrong?
yes hes from a rescue and had foster parents. The problem is he won't go on walks. I put the leash on him and he doesn't move and I don't want to drag him along. I carried him outside with a leash once and he completely freaked out. He thought i was chasing him and then he stopped and sat down. He was shaking again so i brought him back in and calmed him down.
I’m sure you mean really well but you’ve asked this question 3 times already today. I’m sure your extreme nervousness is being transferred to this dog and he’s feeling it and you must know that dogs pick up on people’s emotions. By now this dog thinks he’s got a good reason to be feeling scared and nervous. You need to calm down if you want this dog to. Relax and back off and give this dog a chance to feel at home. Give him some time!
