Hello, everyone! I recently adopted a one year old Yorkie/Chihuahua mix and, as hard I as I've tried, he doesn't play. With me or with any other dogs. I've tried soaking his toy in chicken broth and tried taking him to the dog park but, when we get there, he just sits on my lap.
Any way I can get my dog to play?

I have taken him to the vet to see if anything is wrong and he said Pepper was fine. And there are three other Yorkies of the same age there and he just shows no interest. He just wants to sit on my lap and get petted. For some reason, I think that is his idea of playing? If that makes sense. He just doesn't care for it.

Depending on how recently he has been adopted, I would not expect to see playful behaviour. If he's not playing after more than a month - then yeah, worry about it. For now, he's busy trying to ADJUST, and probably doesn't have a lot of energy left over for play - or trust the environment/know the deal well enough to want to.
