Bother, I wrote a long reply to you, stopped to try and find your profile and see where you lived (and your name! sorry, don't know it!) and lost the reply! Hope it didn't end up attached to some other thread!! Take two:
The gist, anyway, was that I'm sure there will be others with more knowledge and advice to give, but it seems to me that you really need some professional help - it would be tragic to have to give up on your puppy before finding out what can be done. Poor little thing, he's been handed to and fro already, and that alone could be the cause of behavioural problems; OR it could be something more serious. At least you are in touch with the breeder - might she be able to talk to the first owner? I can't see why, if the question is put in a non-confrontational or accusatory way, she shouldn't be able to elicit some information and find out if something DID happen to him? I do hope you manage to find some help - you don't say where you live, but if you did, then perhaps others on this forum might know of local recommendations for a good animal behaviourist? It would be SO worth it if your puppy could be rescued from behaviour that might end in your having to take him back to the breeder for a second time. Good luck! Keep us posted.
