I had a White Shepherd mix that had pretty low drive for toys. If she was feeling really good, so would fetch a ball a couple of times, but invaraibly she would stop and then looka t me like "You threw it! You go get it" She just was never much interested.
Argos liked to chase things and would run go get them and bring them back by 10 weeks. Different kind of dog.
When I would play with Ellie and Argos she liked the chase him getting the ball, but never much cared for the toy itself.
You can try uping the energy level, you can also try giving the toy more value so he wants to have it, either by trying a different toy or using Ed's suggestion of running out to get it yourself. IN the end though, he just might not be much of a fetcher.
