We just (on Monday - two days ago!) adopted a rescue Chi. She is 3 yrs old and about 6 pounds. BUT, she needs to gain about half a pound, looking at her very skinny belly and her ribs. She is quite thin. She was raised with very large dogs and did not get to eat much due to dominance of the other, bigger dogs. Her tail has a crook in it, as well, because a big dog bit her once and it was never repaired. It is healed but now forever bent. So I do know she had issues eating before. We don't have any other dogs - just a cat.
Anyway, she won't eat kibble. She'll eat the CAT kibble, any table foods we give her (which we do not want to start on THAT!) but she will NOT, NOT, NOT eat dog kibble.
We have tried both the brand and flavour the rescue had her eating as well as two other brands. Nothing....she's not interested.
She is otherwise quite fine. She is friendly, happy, wagging her tail and running around, whines when we leave, acts like a lunatic when we return.....she seems like quite a well-adjusted dog considering she has been in three homes (her original home, the foster home and now ours) in the past 6 weeks. Poor soul.
