new puppy need advice!
Ohk, so I'm new here and my name is Heather, my boyfriend and I just got our first puppy together yesterday from a shelter. He is havanese maybe mixed with something but we aren't sure. His name is Trevor and he's 9 months old. Well when we adopted him at Petsmart from the shelter he was stressed and barking a lot so I carried him till we got to three car to help ease his fears. Then we had a 2 hour driver back home where I just let Trevor sit on my lap the whole time and returner he tried to climb into the driver seat with my boyfriend I would say no. Well by the time we got home and he was exploring the apt, my boyfriend was trying to train him and play with him but if I walked out of the room he followed and barked at my boyfriend. I'm assuming it's because I told him no for 2 hours not to sit with my boyfriend. But he was acting fine and ate the food I gave him along with some treats, but later he threw up all his food. Then 2 hours later threw up a little more but it was just liquid. He's also been laying around sorta sleeping, going from his bed to the couch. Which I just assumed was because of the stress of new people and home. Then this morning I took him out to go potty and then tried to make him some new food but he wasn't interested. Just had some water and got back in his bed in my room. He's been laying down sleeping since he laid back down after going outside for a few minutes. But every time I've taken him outside since i got him he hasn't pooped. I have to make a vet visit for next week to finish up his shots and what not but I'm starting to get worried he's he's not just being but just really depressed because of the change. He's a really good puppy and I love him to death already and I wanted a dog that would lounge around with me in the apt but I'm worried this is more depression than lounging. He doesn't appear to want to play at all. And I know that it's normal or common for new dogs sometimes to not eat for the first day or two but is it normal or common for them to threw up if they do eat then decide to not eat?
