Doggie Depression?

As some of you know, I lost my puppy on Dec 26th. Daisy was a female Jack Russell terrier. At first my moms male Chiuaua terrier (approx 4 - 6 yearsold ) was very sad sulking around all the time. Then he started to return to his normal routine except for playing, since he lost his companion he will not play no matter what we try. Today he started snapping and almost attacking our female pommerinian, which has never happened before - but is something Daisy used to do (playfully). Then later I noticed him chewing on my nieces toys, and we have never had a problem with him chewing on anything before. I'm wondering if this is out of boredom or depression? Is this possible? If so, what can I do to help him?
