Adopted 6 wk ago still no affection

Post by Magatrell » Fri Feb 28, 2020 4:55 pm

I adopted a 2 yr old male with heartworms about 6 wks ago. He is on medication for the heartworms and he is not aggressive but he still does not seem to be able to accept any affection. He will follow us around and sit by us, but if you try to pet him he moves. Not treat motivated. He cooperates with us to get him leashes to go outside, but I’m concerned no wagging of tail or allowing us to pet him. My last Chow was very affectionate. We have tried everything. If you get on floor with him he gets up and moves. Hides under coffee table most of the time. Not sure if any abuse happened in his past but will he ever get past it and warm up to us?
