This also can be very normal for the first little bit or even a few days when your puppy gets to his/her new home with you. The puppy is out of the environment that it grew up in, away from his/her brothers and sisters, around new people and just starting a whole new life. The best thing ALWAYS you can do is be very nice, and gentle to the puppy, never scold or punish a puppy for not wanting to eat or try to force them to eat. As they grow, and start getting used to a new home with you, they will get more eased up and get used to new life with you! There are some things you can do in the meantime to get the puppy to eat and drink. There are many popular puppy foods you can get at your local pet store or even at Wal-Mart such as Ol’ Roy that ALL puppies love because it is juicy, and comes in soft chunks. We highly recommend this if you are having problems at the start of getting your puppy to eat if you are having problems.
