Picky eater

I have an 8-mth old shi tzu and within the past few months he has become really unexcited when its time to eat his food. However, he seems to like eating everything else. I have changed his food, the original food he wouldn't even touch. Now it seems as though he's tired of this food also. I've been feeding him Purina One for puppies. Does anyone who has this breed have any suggestions on what I should try next?

I do not have a little dog I have huge dogs (more like horses) but I do know that Purina is not a good food for any dog.

We have a 7 month old Shih Tzu and she is not too picky with her food. The wife however has spoiled her by hand feeding her though. When she gets hungry she does eat on her own.

I suggest switching to another brand. Right now we are using Wellness Puppy Super5Mix and Ariel loves it. Its human grade food and its baked. When we gave her a sample, she was jumping for it. Highly recommended!!

Hi, we give our 6 month old Solid Gold for puppies and she seems to like it. She doesn't really eat a whole lot of anything though, she has always been a small eater. We do give her a teaspoon of Chicken Soup for the puppy canned food everyday and she goes crazy for that.
