Our first Basset, Bubba now ATB, was a very picky eater when we first got him as an 8 month old. We even were using the same food as the breeder we got him from. The vet told us to just wait him out, that she had never seen a Basset starve himself to death. She told us to put his food down in the morning, wait ten minutes, and if he hadn't eaten pick it up and try him again at night. She also told us to with hold cookies and treats until he started eating normally. After about three days of not eating he started eating with gusto and never quit again. Hopefully Goser will be chowing down very soon.
