Can Dogs suffer from Autism?
Please see above description under PERTINENT TEST RESULTS for background.  We've had him over a year and he never blossomed........
Is there any hope at all for him to be an active normal puppy? He really hates to move or go outside even Always very stiff when he first rises... Plus he never uses his tail, ever.....Every single  thing seems like the biggest chore or effort for him.......He wants to do nothing and has no interest in anything... not even treats or chew toys or balls.. Will just eat his food and lay down... thats it! Please help...... I just want him to be ok. 2 different vets have no explanation as his xrays are fine, but he does have very lose tendons and ligaments in his rear hocks....The distemper survivor is the only hypothesis, but it cannot be tested as the pound gave him a distemper shot before we adopted him so he now obviously has the anti-bodies in his system.....

I would start with a complete eval and some very specifically targeted tests to find the cause of this obviously abnormal behavior.  It could be neurological, behavioral or a result of some trauma that you are completely unaware of.  

in a forum like this it is impossible for us to help.  you are going to need a veterinarian that would take an interest and really dig to find you some answers.  What we have here is far too general and we just can't speculate.  

There are veterinarians that will work with you on the long process of finding answers in a very curious case like this.  

good luck.
