The situation is slightly complicated, my boyfriend and I now have a blue heeler pup. We got him from his parents who live next door who had a litter and still have the remaining pups in the back yard with the parents, ours is the first one to be seperated. We are keeping him inside but of course are taking him out to potty and relax in the sun, but I feel like the usual puppy depression associated with a new puppy is worse because only a fence is separating him from his litter mates and parents all he does is sit at the fence and whine for hours on end, bring him inside he's either asleep or whining to go outside because he knows they're out there. It's heart breaking he's even made a great Escape and we found him on the other side of the fence with his sisters, I don't know how to help him move on and adjust with all of them so close by???
