I’m at a loss with my 7mo old Gs. First off, I have rescued many dogs but never a GS. He is full breed. I have had him for 3 weeks. When I first brought him home he would not get out of the car. I had to carry him in the house. And for the next 3 days I had to pick him up to make him go outside. I had to pick him up to come inside. (This still happens on occasions) I thought he was just shy? He warmed up to me somewhat. He will follow me everywhere I go BUT as soon as I stop at the Refrigerator, stove, sink, bathroom, no matter where I stop he just immediately flops to the floor. He will follow me everywhere, but if I go to sit down he will stop a short distance from me and lay down and no matter how much I call him or try to entice him with things he won’t come. If I go to him, he almost cowers to me but will allow me to pet him and love him for a couple of mins, but will then get up and go lay down away from me and he looks so sad it just kills me. I’ve never had a dog that didn’t want a lot of attention and affection. I am giving my sweet dog every ounce of love I have. Is any of this normal?
