You are right, pits are typically a high energy breed, but they are also very versitile. My sister has a very mellow pit too. Mine is not. Dogs have personalities just like we do. The first thing I would do is to take her to the vet and make sure she has a clean bill of health. Sometimes chronic pain or disorders that can be tested for can cause lethargy. However, as high energy as Kaos is, he isn’t too much in to any of the Kong ball type toys either, until you put peanut butter inside! Then it’s a great toy. These types of toys are designed to be more mentally stimulating than high energy. Kaos’ favorite toys are stuffed animals. They’re like tootsie pops, how many licks to get to the center. If she’s content just lounging, that’s fine. Most of the time toys are to burn off energy or to discourage distructive chewing. She’ll find things she likes to do. If she prefers to play with other dogs, find puppy pals for her. If she would just rather chill with you, make sure you give her excercise for weight control, but other than that, just enjoy the fact that you don’t have to find creative ways to burn energy (the dog’s energy, not yours.) Don’t worry too much though, she’s adapting to a new environment and a new family. You will learn about her and she will become more confident and playfull with you as she settles in. I bet you anything that by the end of the week she will start showing signs of being more interested in play.
