Default Not sure what's wrong with him

So my little guy has been crying a lot lately and he just looks so sad. He's out and about with me around the house most of the day, usually on his leash so I can keep him near by if I can't stop and watch him. He goes into his "room" at night which is my bathroom with a baby gate. He gets plenty of attention and love and snuggles. I'm not sure why he seems so depressed. I jut look at his face and he looks so sad 😟 it's heartbreaking cuz I love my little guy so much. Should I take him to the vet?

Does he show any other symptoms? How old is he? How long is he like this? If it were me I would go to the vet. Crying is a sign of something bothering him.

If he's not acting like his normal self, I'd take him to the vet. It may be nothing , but it's better to find out.

Does he seem like he is in pain? I think I would take him in to be sure nothing is wrong.

Doesn't seem to be in any pain which is why I'm so confused. He runs around with the kids and seems to be happy but then he just sits and cries

Its so hard to tell when they are small to really know. Try to determine when he cries and if it sounds like a painful cry. If it continues I would take him to the vet for sure.

How long have you had him?

Can you call his breeder?

When we first got Grace she cried for about a week - not all the time, but off and on. She was missing her mom She had been really close with her.

Leaving their mom and siblings is a transition.....

If you have had her awhile and this is new - definitely make a vet trip. especially in a puppy so young. Better be safe than sorry.

Aww, poor baby! I think I would go on and take him to the vet just to make sure. At first, before I saw his age, I thought maybe it could be teething. Leila turns 5 months old tomorrow and has lost a few teeth and her gums are red & swollen. She has periods of play, but most of the time this week, she just wants to be held and gets a little sad looking. She didn't do that when it was the baby teeth. But your baby is too young to be cutting his adult ones. I hope nothing is wrong, but I think you'd feel better if you found out for sure.

How long have you had him? I know they can miss the Mom and liter mates. I would let the Vet take a look and call the breeder. Hope he feels better soon.
