Doggy depression.  
My boyfriend and i just recently lost our Boston terrier Makki, we have another one that is about the same age as him that we got as a rescue, from what we understand from the previous owner, Pizzy or "piggy" as we like to call her has never been with out other dogs. Now that Makki is gone we are finding out that she is having a hard time adjusting to being alone in the house. I usually work the early shift so i'm usually home after 3 and corey usually doesn't go to work until about 8-9 so that leaves her in the house alone for about 7 hours or less depending on my schedule. I've been out of work for about a month now due to complications with a kidney infection so she really hasn't been caged since then and its only been about 2 weeks since we had to put makki to sleep, but it was friday that i went in and when i came home she was howling so loudly i could hear her outside the house with my stereo on and her room is in the basement. she's been so depressed lately that i've had to hand feed her and give her water out of a drinking glass. i'm so worried about her because she doesn't seem like the same pizzy since makki's been gone. corey and i want to get another baby but were not sure if a male or a female would be the best or what we should even do. i'm not sure if we are ready to get another one so soon but i hate the way piggy is acting.

I would def talk to your vet. That sounds like major puppy grieving. I know they do antidepressants for dogs and that sounds like the relief she needs.
