So my 2 year old dog Mongdori's best friend since he was 10 months old is moving away. She is a female mutt (maybe pit/boxer/hound), 4 years old named Zoe and for over a year now they have met almost every morning before I go to work to play for a good 20 minutes, sometimes they even get to play twice a day, and even longer on weekends.
I'm really worried about how my dog will react when she is gone. Has anyone gone through this before?
Their play styles are so complementary, and since they met in his early formative years, I've found that their bond has gotten so strong that lately they don't allow any other dogs to play with them while they are playing (even if it is a good mutual dog friend).
I also have noticed that he just isn't interested in playing with other dogs the way he used to be. He is so obsessed with Zoe and only Zoe! Whenever we go out for a walk he just wants to go to the park to see if she is there.
I'm worried that he will never make another friend like Zoe and that he will become depressed when they move in a 1.5 months.
Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated!
