Hello, My name is Heather. Me and my husband bought a 5mo Scotts American Bulldog who we named Darwin. The problem we are having with him is he is EXTREMLY shy/fearful. He has been a kennel dog all his life so I understand this is all new to him and probably very scary. If you look at him or talk to him he ducks his head or turns around to face the other way..if you walk to him (to take out and go potty) he runs and hides. He seems to want nothing to do with us. Now when we put him on the bed with us he snuggles and loves but anywhere else its nothing but shying ducking and hiding. Walking outside he pretty much belly crawls across the ground. My question is A: is this somthing that will work itself out over time or does he have a chance to be this way his whole life? B: Does anyone have any tips and tricks to bring this beautiful boy out of his shell? We have only had him a few days but I just want to make this transition more easy on him.
