Angry Momo, is home... But he isn't eating. HELP!

Momo, just got home last night but since then he hasn't eaten. The breeder I got him from told me that she didn't feed him, because of fear that he may vomit in the car. And told me to feed him when I got home, she said that he was a good eater, and even a pig at times. But he still hasn't eaten at all since we have gotten home.
Is this normal.http://www.havaneseforum.com/images/smilies/frown.gif

Momo's Mom, I finally found true love.

The more knowledgeable will put in their opinions, I am sure. My thought is - I wouldn't worry at this point - if it was just last night that you brought him home. This is a huge change for him. He has left the only home he has known. Make sure he has water available, but I think he will probably eat when he is hungry and his nerves have settled a bit. And try to remain calm yourself, as I am sure they pick up on our feelings as well. Bringing home a new puppy can be a bit stressful for the first few days. I remember that part WELL!

I wouldn't worry too much . Give him a bit longer. Are you feeding the same thing as the breeder?

I agree with Suzi on the hand feeding. I don't think you should worry right now. Everyone's right it was a huge change. He just needs time to adjust to his new surroundings.

Keep us all posted!!

I was going to suggest the same thing about hand feeding a little. Let us know how it goes. I know it can be scary in the beginniing, but just imagine how it is for him. He's in a foreign land with none of the people and dogs he knows. Give him a little time to adjust.

He hasn't really been drinking alot or eating, he is kinda scared sround the rest of our familly. I finally got him to eat a little it but I had to go into the bathroom, and had to hand feed him first. I'm just scared for him, I have to figure out a way to get him use to everyone else. Does anyone have any ideas?

Momo's Mom, I finally found true love.

Yes he is eating the same food, she gave me a bag of food when I got him.

I am very worried.
Tomorrow is Monday. - can you get him to the vet?
what does the breeder say? have you been in touch?
keep trying to feed him. maybe confine him to a small space?
