1 year old chi acting strange...depressed? sick?
first off, he is a little over a year old...have had him since he was 3 months old. he is fixed. i live in alaska...(sometimes negative degree weather) and he uses pee pads, instead of going out for this reason. he sleeps all day, seems kind of sad. but wont go outside because its so cold (he is 6 pounds)..what are some things to keep him entertained during the winter hours? he has tons of toys, bedding.
also, the past couple weeks he's been shaking his head and when he does this, hes flipping his left ear as if its annoying him..he hasnt been scratching it, but any idea on what this is? id take him to he vet, but we only have one vet in my town and im completely broke (i wasnt broke when i got my pup, but hard times are hard times, can't control when a family crisis happens and you run low on money...he is fed good, and taken care of really well despite that)
any help would be appreciated! not getting many answers from anywhere else.
