Question shy chi pup

Well my newly rescued puppy papi is turning out to be the shy and scared type. I don't know how to help him realise that its ok and not to worry about gettin hurt again. Any suggestions?

Give him time and space to come to you and get comfortable with you in his own time. I know that is hard, but the harder you try, the more you will aggravate the behavior you are trying to get him to overcome. Also, many chis just exhibit that behavior naturally like people have personality traits--he may never "get over" being shy and skiddish. We have had Lulu since she was 9 weeks old and she will be 5 years old in January. There could not be a more loved and adored chi, but she still acts sometimes like she's skiddish and scared. That's just her.

Lots of talking softly & cuddling! Taking him for plenty of walks as this helps build confidence. It may take some time.

This is PURE truth. Every word. The biggest mistake I see and hear people make is trying too hard. That will only frustrate you and make the process go more slowly with your little one.

One of mine is shy/fearful and will likely always be even though she has been afforded the same life and treatment as my others who are nothing like her.

My advice is to go on living life as you would have and your little one will adapt as he is able.

My 16 year old mini fox terrier is a rescue, we have had her since she was 7 months old, she was abused, it took a year for her to trust us, each month got a little better, it was a long time getting her use to Not being abused. She is still flighty with strangers. It takes time and a lot of love. Your little one has seen more and been through more than most pups, he won't forget it either. Thanks to you he will now have a home and experience what love is.
