|Jakesworld||Sometimes it can take more than just a couple days to come around. He's only been with you for a couple days. He might be a little scared. Unsure for sure. He may be missing his siblings. Think about it, put yourself in his paws... Everything you've ever known , all the smells, family, playthings, everything you've been learning about, everything that's familiar to you, everything that's "safe" has just been snatched away from you. How would you feel? Sad? Depressed? Scared? Give it some time, don't push, it won't take long for him to learn to love you and get comfortable. I swear every time we get a new puppy, it breaks my heart taking them from their home and family. Eventually, his whole world will be "you".|

Seriously. I don't think Finn was interested in anything solid until about six months. Everything was new and exciting...but he grew "used" to the normal very quickly and it wasn't until about 8 months before the ball could keep his attention for more than 2 minutes. He's now a ball hog, but he's 5
Give it some time.

Enjoy. Seriously. Won't be like that for long. I give it three weeks before we see posts of "I jinxed it! Help!"

Don't try to over-stimulate him. Let him relax and adjust, be dependable and consistent.
Your pup is a baby, think of maslow's hierarchy of needs - he probably needs to feel that his basics are covered and is in a safe environment before he can play.

|Springbrz||Ha Ha...just you wait. One day, very soon, I bet you'll be asking how to get him to stop tugging and let go of the leg of your pajama pants or your bathrobe.|
