We rescued a dog on Friday. (6 days ago).
I grew up with a dog but now realise how little I actually know, so am happy to find a forum where I can read and ask for advice.
He is around 9 months old. He is a boxer cross. Amazing dog, so gentle and loving and we are completely totally in love with him already. Can't imagine our lives without him
We got him from the pound where he spent the last 2 weeks in a little tin cage.
Now that he is with us, I noticed he sleeps 22-23 hours a day. He would easily sleep the rest if we just let him.
I don't know if it is normal or not? If he has a burst of energy when we play with him it lasts a couple of minutes and then he wants to go back to sleep.
Today I found it hard to wake him up but when husband and son took him for a walk he was ok to walk.
I don't know what to make of it. Is he ok?
On friday when we got him, vet said his muscles are under developed. I have been feeding him biotic plus and another brand of puppy dry food, supplementing with bits of steak/sausage that we have left overs.
Any advice would be appreciated!!!
