Timid 4 month old Springer Spaniel
Hi,Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
I am an avid Springer Spaniel lover and care taker. I have had four of these beautful animals and they are hands down the best dog.
I recently about 3 months ago picked up my oldest Springer Abel, he is now 6 months old. He is happy loves playing and just doing his springer thing. Abel is in great health and is already a 40lb pup. He is not fat either, can still feel each on of his ribs.
Yesterday, my wife and I brought home our newest addition Abby. She is a little too timid. She barely moves, just enough to eat and drink. Last night she ate and drank quite a bit then laid back down. She didnt want to play or anything. We put her in her crate last night and she did make a sound. All night. She didnt potty for a good 12 hours. This morning we brought he outside she peed for a good 2 minutes, then laid back down on the carport and didnt move.
I am thinking it is an adjustment phase.
The breeder did say she just got her third round of puppy shots yesterday and I think that those could of made her tired, then getting a bath and adjusting to a new home could be a big part.
I do know that all of my other springers were not like this and the were a mess.
Mom and dad looked great when we met then, they we full of engery and running around the field like regular springers do.
Anyone have suggestions ideas?
Just wanting her to feel like this is her home and that we are her new parents best friends.
Abel wants to play with her but she has not interest.
I know she is just a pup but sometimes I worry.
