I found a Japanese Chin in December and no one ever claimed him so I ended up keeping him. I took him to the vet and had him checked out and got his shots in January and she thought he was between 3-4 years old. He is one of the best dogs I have ever had. I have three other inside dogs and he gets along great with them. My question is, he is more like a stuff animal. I bring him to work with me and he stays in his bed about all day. Even when clients come in he does not get up. He does not play much with the other dogs, when he walks he walks really slow and he never shows any emotions so it’s hard to tell if he is happy or not feeling well. Do these dogs not show any emotions or should I take him to the vet and have some blood work done on him?

My feeling is that he may still be figuring everything out. It must have been a total world shaker to find himself dumped or lost What is he like just with you? Does he sniff you? He sounds traumatized so maybe just give him time and extra affection. Thank you for taking him in. It never hurts to have him examined on the other hand.
