Cry Help me and my yorkie!

This is my very first post here and i am so glad i found this message board!!!!

I got my gog 2 days ago from my sister in law. They always had him out back and he rarelly came in. Now that he is with me, he is inside all the time i take him for walks, etc. But i am have some problems with him.

first, when i take him with me in the car, he drools A LOT and gets really nervous. he threw up in the car today. is that normal? will he get used to it?

second, he has thrown up a couple times since i got him. is it because he is just nervous?

third, Ill take him outside to go potty, and he wont go. then 10 minutes later hell go in the house.

fourth, he barely eats. i have to sit with him so he eats. is it the food?

fifth, he barely drinks water.

he peed on me last night in the car and we were outside the whole day and he never went.

I am very worried about my dog. Please help me!

How old is your yorkie and when was his last vet visit? Your sister-in-law should be able to give you this info. It's possible that it's stress. He's just probably nervous because of the new environment he is in. I suggest you contact the vet if the vomiting persist. Don't stress too much yourself. Your dog will be sensing it and would likely get more agitated.

I hope it helps. If not, you can always ring an emergency animal hospital and just ask them. They'd be able to assist you.

second, he has thrown up a couple times since i got him. is it because he is just nervous? very possible. Have you taken him to the vet to get checked out?

third, Ill take him outside to go potty, and he wont go. then 10 minutes later hell go in the house.He's been kept outside most of his life which is sad. You will have to potty train him just like you would a puppy. You might try starting the training using a crate.

fourth, he barely eats. i have to sit with him so he eats. is it the food? What kind of food are you feeding him? He could just still be getting use to his new environment.

fifth, he barely drinks water. Keep checking him for dehydration. It creeps up quick and can be very bad.

he peed on me last night in the car and we were outside the whole day and he never went. again, sounds like he doesn't like car rides.
oh and welcome to YT!

I don't even have a Yorkie yet but during my research for a pup I found information about Yorkie rescue. It sounds like your dog may be suffering from some of the stress those dogs do.

Consider contacting them for some guidelines.

poor little thing. sounds like nerves to me. My opinion : best thing you can do right now is have patience.
Notice the times that he potties and take him out close to the same times. the not eating part was the way that my Buckeye acted when we first got him. He was 2 yrs old at that time.
even now he tries to pull that "I am not going to eat if you don't hand feed me" thing. LOL They won't let them selves starve.
Buckeye is also one that doesn't drink very much water. Just make sure you make avalible at all times fresh clean water.
the vomiting is probably nerves also. Keep and eye on him.
Have you had him to the vet?
doesn't sound like he has had much experience riding in a car. he will probably get used to it if you take him very often.
I am happy to hear you brought him in from the out doors life and welcome to YT.

You need to get him used to the car very gradually - pop him in the car with out the engine running for a 2-3 minutes at first once he is comfortable with that gradually build it up till he will eat his meal in the car. Then and only then try sitting in the car with him with the engine turned on only for a few minutes build up gradually to moving in the car but only move onto each step when he is comfortable with the last one. It may take a month or two to do it but you can make him a happy traveller with time and patience

If he is still car sick a little ginger biscuit may help or you can get tablets from the vet to help (but if you can avoid them it's better as they have a sedating effect).

In the house you need to treat him like a rescue dog

He is too stressout/nervous. Probably because he never been in a car. You have to get him use he the car if you want to take him to places. To start with just sit in the car with him(without the engine on) and praise/treat him. Get him use to the car and the idea that it isn't a really bad place to be.



second, he has thrown up a couple times since i got him. is it because he is just nervous?

It can be nerves. If he threw up in the car it's nerves. Just keep an eye on him and make sure he has plenty of water and that he doesn't throw up again




third, Ill take him outside to go potty, and he wont go. then 10 minutes later hell go in the house.

Being kept outside, he has never been potty trained. Sometimes you are lucky and they understand outside is the place to go potty. In your case, no such luck. Sorry! Have to start potty training from the beginning.



fourth, he barely eats. i have to sit with him so he eats. is it the food?
fifth, he barely drinks water.

Sometimes, a move is so dramatic it is not unusual for a dog to not eat or drink for a few days. But have it available when he does until he seattles down. You may also try to temp him to eat by adding a little bit of can dog food to the dry.


he peed on me last night in the car and we were outside the whole day and he never went.

Back to Nerves!!! He sounds like he is scared to death of the car. Have to get him use to it.

I am very worried about my dog. Please help me!

Hope the info helps!!

BTW, Welcome to the group and congrats on your new dogs!!!
