Is it something with your puppy or with your dad? Has your dad been around the puppy as long as you and your mom? Where did you get your puppy? If it was a rescue puppy the dog may have trust issues with males. Or it could just be the way your dad acts towards the puppy. I think we would need more information on how the puppy came into the family, who does what with the puppy, etc. before anyone could give much advice.

Sorry, just re-read your post and saw some of the answers. Now that I see that, I wonder what things were like for him in your gf's house.

Does your Dad want the dog to like him? Has your Dad tried lying on the floor and playing with your pup, or offering some treats?

See if your Dad will take him for a short walk? Feed him a meal?
