Well, I hope everything turns out okay. But, I would not let him have free roam of the house with other dogs if no one is home. Even if the other dogs are gentle, he could get hurt while playing, jumping off of furniture, eating something he shouldn't...the list goes on. It sounds like he got hurt in some way.

Please let us know how he is!

It doesn't sound behavioural at all to me, it sounds like something or someone has hurt him and scared him, as someomes already said it sounds like he was traumatised.
Something bad happened to him that day for sure and it's really frightened him.
Hope the vet can give u some answers x

Thank you all for your opinions and comments. You are all thinking the way I am, I don't know many Chihuahua owners so it's good to hear from you all. By someone hurting him I meant the other dogs. The other dogs are very dominant, but seem OK when we are around them. The vet didn't tell me a lot, Bruiser was very sooky la la when I picked him up and snuggled me until the vet seen us. The vet gave me two options; give him a full check over, X-rays, semi-sedation, urine/blood checks etc. That was going to be $400.00. That is the option I would prefer but unfortunately this close to Christmas I just can't do that right now. The other option was a 10 day course of pain relief and seeing how that goes. I chose that option. After being at the vet and giving Bruiser his first pill he has already perked up so much! Last night his walking was a lot better and he had a happy face, tail even went up! He was almost back to his old self. I know it's only the first pill but it put my mind at ease a bit to see him looking happy. I am going to give this medication a go, and if there is no improvement I will find a way to get the tests done as Bruiser is very important to me. I will keep you updated with his progress but fingers crossed he was just a wee bit sore!

Your post only appeared after I asked how your boy is, I guess there is a delay since you are new.
I'm glad you went to the vet. Did the vet at least feel Bruiser's body all over?
Are you planning on going back after the holidays?
