My pup is just about 16 weeks and started just about the same as yours when I got him at 8. He's still warming up to me, but I can see the progress each week that passes. The more I teach him, the more he wants.

I know some pups are definitely more standoffish than others, but also I know it's never something you can't work on. You just gotta be patient as well and not push the pup too hard which can negate your efforts.
