My husband and I just adopted Mandie, a two year old dachsund/lab mix. She's really a fantastic girl. The rescue group gave her all her shots and she was just recently spayed, just a few days ago (we got her yesterday). I understand she's probably still a little uncomfortable; however, she hasn't eaten her food yet. She's taken treats from hubby and myself, so we know she eats. We made sure to buy the exact food the rescue had been feeding her and we fed her when we had dinner last night and this morning, but no go. She did sit and watch us while we ate dinner last night, so I'm thinking in her former home she might have gotten fed human food, which I'm super against. My thinking is that she'll eat when she's hungry. As of right now, all she's done is lay on the couch. She does love her walks, though, so is she maybe just trying to heal from being fixed?
