Helping an Abused Dog

I have a 5 mo. old Chihuahua. I believe he was abused. He won't take treats from me and stays in his little bed all day. What can I do to help him?

Some dogs don't like to eat in front of people and will only eat when people are gone. Also, some dogs associate treats with something they don't want to do. My dog knows a treat means bedtime. As for staying in his bed all day, maybe he's scared of the new place. Are there noisy kids around? Loud music? I believe he'll come out of it in time, but would suggest a good physical if you haven't already done that. (05/28/2009)

Run don't walk to the Vet, your dog needs a thorough examination. God Bless you for rescuing your furbaby. Good luck.

Be very, very patient with him. As Glenn'sMom mentioned, he might not wanna eat when you're watching. I adopted a Siamese cat about 12 years back and he spent the first 3 months under my bed. I put a litter box under there for him. I fed him there. Eventually, he came out. Bless you for adopting this wee baby. (06/02/2009)
