Well after picking Buzz up from JDs we had a great run home, he winned for about half hour on and off then slept the other 3 hours. Gave him some tea when we got home which was very late then out for a wee and poo then into his crate. We heard quite a lot of crying through the night but left him to it.
Night 2 was much better with very little fuss going in and heard nothing till 6am and just a wee in the crate.
He is just so loving and very cuddly and placid, we hardly know we have him, he sleeps a lot and although very placid is not shy or nervous. We popped to sainsburys today and put him in his outdoor kennel, he complained a little but when we got back was fast asleep in there :) he hasn't had much appetite but we are taking food away after 20 minutes still and taking the approach as with kids that he will eat if he is hungry, has anyone else found this in the first few days?
Can't believe how lucky we are and are all totally smitten already. :ilmc:

Arrrr congrats !!! he's doing really well.

Is he on orijen?? Buddy still is i give all of his in his kongs (i have 5 different ones) why dont you give it ago he may eat more??? Just weigh out his normal amount and spilt it ,for Buddy i fill all 5 (some are small some big) in the morning then a big and a small one for lunch then all 5 again for dinner.(buddy is rather large )

Also if he's reluctant at first mix abit of cream cheese in with his kibble too, Buddy loves this and he will take ages just trying to lick it all out of the kong.

I know everyone else feeds in the bowl but honestly this does work .

Also i do give a small amount of his kibble as a treat ie: for sitting etc

Its very early days for Buzz if its only day 2. Give him a few more days to settle and I'm sure his appetite will soon pick up. Feeding in the Kong is a worth a try. He sounds a lovely pup - look forward to seeing photos. :)

Buzz is lovely. I'm sure his eating will get better. We have also put ours on NI and she loves it, a little too much actually. She bounces so much waiting for she nearly knocked herself out the other day!

You very lucky if he is very placid and don't know you have him, though that will soon change once he finds his feet :D

Well Buzz is doing great still very placid and loving :) Hes doing well in the outdoor kennel, he cries for a bit but when we get back is always asleep. Still a bit restless in the crate at night and always come down to carnage in it, paper shredded everywhere, usually a wee but have not had any poo's in the crate.
Still worried about the feeding, he isnt eating much at all, he has had some cooked chicken which he will eat but he is not interested in the Orijin in bowl or Kong or even treats. Have a vets appointment friday for general check so will mention to them, he just does not seem food orientated at all :(
