Take him to the vet. It may be more than sadness. When my senior non GSD dog was dying of cancer, he would not eat regular food, but would still be enthusiastic for meats, pizza, whatever I could get him to eat. My point is NOT that you have this serious of a problem--its probably not serious, but that even very ill dogs will be excited with human food, so just because your puppy seems great with chicken doesn't mean his disinterest in his regular food is not a sign of an illness.

Hunter, see if his gums are white or pink > ? White is not a good sign and pink is much better.

eyes are bright and clear
nose cold and wet
gums nice pink color
regular stools
drinking enough fresh water
does he like ice cubes
eating enough
is he lonely
does he have a canine buddy
staying away from you at night
pads on feet are good and not cracked
toe nails are not too long
do you see any signs of pink color in his urine (uti)
is he skinny or not gaining weight
shedding for summer blowout of coat
is he giving kisses on command
i could go on forever

Call your vet and discuss this with him/her.

Its tough b/c you cant just ask him whats up...
After 2-3 days i would chalk it up to a tired mood. Hey, we all get those, right? Dogs have moods too.
Any longer than that I'd take him in for a checkup just for my own peace of mind.

Both of my dogs are doing the same thing. My GSD Tess, who use to wolf down her food both morning and evening, stopped eating her morning meals, once the weather started to get hot, she'll be 2 next month. Then my 1.5 year old Cairn Terrier followed suit and is even worse about eating, especially in the mornings.

I have to doctor up their kibble (Taste of the Wild) in order to get them to eat, the use to love it, now they just smell it and walk away. They both just lay around all day, won't go out in the yard. I have a couple of friends whose dogs have been doing the same thing. I think it's the heat and humidity.

Although, if I get Tess' leash out, she perks up somewhat and becomes excited. Tess also has allergies, which is another reason she's been aloof lately, she's miserable at times.

Please give your vet a call to be on the safe side. Good luck!
