My dog is a 7 year old that I got from the shelter a few days ago. Now I heard that by now, he would be considered a senior.
The first day was good. He was exploring and was active and sat on my lap a lot. But in the second day, there was a comlete change. He was slow and lazy. He just slept on the floor (no longer jumped on couches and beds), followed me whenever I moved and slept there. I read online that dogs might sleep in the day becuase they're bored, so I tried getting out different toys to play with. He wasn't interested in any of them.
Rimi doesn't chew shoes, tug on anything or destroy (which I am very grateful of), but that makes me think he doesn't want to play with any toy. He sleeps around... I would say 20 hours a day. Only waking up on walks and for food. Is this normal? How can any dog sleep for that long?
I took him to the vet yesterday and the vet said he was healthy exept for a ear infection.
