He does look like he is doing great with that puppy. If he was never exposed to playing before, it will take some time, but he should learn. My mom's hav, Bacca, is a retired show dog. He is actually still very young (under 2 years old) but he didn't know how to play when she got him in January. We suspect he was so busy showing with a handler and stuff that he never got to be a true puppy. He was treated well, but just had a different puppyhood. He looked at my dogs who ran in the yard to get the ball and chased toys like they were crazy. Now, he is the first one to chase the ball and the 3 boys all play hard together all the time when he is here. He now loves toys too. Mom had gotten a bunch of toys when she first got him and told me he didn't like toys. It took a few months, but he is all about toys now. I think through exposure to playing and other dogs, Lucky will learn all the joys dogs should have in life.
