Our 3rd chi was much like the one you adopted. We got him from my wife's sister, who got him (Johuahua) because she thought it would be cute to have a chi. She didn't have time for him and her 5 year old "terror" handled him roughly. Since we have had him (since Jan 05) he has relaxed quite a bit and is extremely playful. You would think we had him since a pup. He will cower initially as I reach down to pet him, but he relaxes right away when I begin to pet him. He's our little son, and we love'em!

I would stop giving him the milkbones and make only his food (and water) available to him. He's still very tense and scared about you and his new environment, even if you don't see it. When he's hungry enough he'll eat. Make sure you're putting the food where he can find it.
