Resident Dog Off Food Since Arrival of New Puppy

I just bought a new puppy (7 weeks) and my 2 yr old Maitipoo won't eat. At first he wanted to eat hers, but he won't touch his food. Not even human food. He still drinks water and seems playful with her. Is he just being stubborn?

He not king of the castle anymore and has to share attention. He won't strave himself with food out. Don't worry he will over it in time,

Why don't you just let them share a bowl? It's not going to hurt the adult dog to have puppy food until the puppy graduates to adult food and this way they also learn to share.
