ok so i just bought a 8 week old red nosed pit, he seems to be very shy and timid, when i put him down he just sits there and doesnt move much, i know puppies sleep alot but thats all he does. i dont know if he is sick or if i should be worried.. help please!
First of all, your pup is VERY young yet, so he really will spend most of his time eating, peeing, pooping and sleeping.
You haven't said where he came from if he has been vet check & health certified, if not, that's something you should do right away.
The other thing is his own (basic) personality. No matter the breed, there are always pups within a litter that will be more outgoing, some more intelligent and others, shyer than the rest. You need to consider the parents temperaments, where and how he was raised to the point he came to your home.
You also need to consider your home, his new environment, is it noisy, lots of folks coming & going, other pets, etc...
In short, vet check to make sure he's healthy, patience and lots of love and attention and he should become more active as he reaches the "toddler stage".. That's the one where he will begin chewing on everything within his reach
