When you look at dogs that are so full of loyalty and eager love for you, it is difficult to think of one as depressed, but in fact dogs can get depressed. And when they do it is upon you to cheer them up. Sometimes you will find that depression may be a daily thing as some pooches do have a problem from being separated from their owner. They will feel down once they realize that the household is going to be empty and they are going to be left alone.
Sometimes the cause of depression could be a special event like the birth of a baby or sometimes sadly due to the passing away of somebody who used to play with the dog or even the demise of a member of the family.
