I just adopted my puppy (Piper) from the animal shelter a little over a week ago. She is said to be about 12 weeks old. The first few days I had her she kept to herself and didn't really want to play with me, despite my best efforts. She ignored me and my boyfriend and didn't really seem interested in interacting with us. But now I've started to notice that she loves my boyfriend. She always wants to play with him, follows him around and her tail is always wagging when she sees him. I also noticed that she is like this toward other people as well because she was very sweet to the vet.

She seems to like everyone except me and I can't figure out why. I am the one who feeds her, walks her, trains her, etc. I try to play with her as much as she wants, but she doesn't seem interested in me. She tends to tuck her tail under her legs when she interacts with me. If I sit on the ground and call her she just stares at me. If anyone else does she immediately goes running toward them. I don't know why she doesn't like me. I give her lots of treats and only use positive reinforcement during training. I've never had a dog (especially a puppy ) who just didn't like me.

What can I do?! It's breaking my heart.

Thanks for the replies! Things have actually been surprisingly better today. I spent a lot of time playing with her and she's been following me around so yay!
